Instead it shows that everything still runs the same but under more striked/harsh rules. So in a way I don’t like the movie because it doesn’t leave me with the feeling that the novel left me with and most important it doesn’t show me how a totalitarian state should be like. I would so much recommend the novel weiter. As a student I learned a lot from it. And im sure that every man and every woman at any age will learn, too.

The book should not be read to high school students, one reason being that it has too many racial slurs. People today get offended easily; especially the American people, they will try to sew anybody for anything, and this book will definitely trigger those emotions. The storyline takes place in the 19th century, so there were no limitations on racism like we have now. There was discrimination of the black community like slavery, lynching, unfair imprisonment, and many other ways. There are many appearances of the ‘N’ word and when we were reading in groups, it felt really uncomfortable when the word came up and I didn’t want to offend my classmates.
People can experience stereotyping in the media, corporate America, and even in schools. Majority of the time people often stereotype others without even being aware of their actions and realizing the damage of their behavior. Stereotyping is harmful to others because it places them under unwanted labels and if acted on in a negative way can lead to discrimination. The movie “Freedom Writers” was centered on a group of teenagers who were placed in a developmental class because they didn’t measure up to the other students, but not because they couldn’t because they didn’t feel the need to apply themselves. Even though they all came from different backgrounds they all had the common factor of growing up in tough neighborhoods.
Critics wish to band the novel for its depressing views of life, vulgar language and mature themes; but it is from these elements the reader can learn the best lessons. As a result, this classic novel should unquestionably be taught at a high school level because at this age readers will be mature enough to both comprehend and appreciate the novel the way in which it was meant to be read by Salinger.

The word “Nigger,” used for a member of any dark-skinned race of people and is often known for being offensive, is used over two hundred times in Huckleberry Finn. The word fuels and contributes to black people’s feelings of low self-esteem and to white people’s disrespect for them.

Huckleberry Finn accentuates their one difference that is always apparent, which is the color of their skin. People against the use of Huckleberry Finn in the schools believe black children are offended by the use of the word “nigger’ anywhere, no matter what the teacher uses to justify it.

For example, when children are given reading assignments, such as reading aloud in class, they are forced to make mistakes in front of their peers, causing children to relate reading with feelings of humiliation. Coincidently, this has a negative effect on the student’s feelings and motives to read.
