A New Edition of Huckleberry Finn... Where they're going to replace the "N-word" with "Robot"

I've been struggling over the past few weeks with what to say about the controversy swirling around the new edition of Huck Finn that replaced the "N-word" with "slave," arguing that people's uncomfortableness with the "N-word" made it impossible to teach the book in schools.

Well Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine have come up with the best response I could imagine.

Watch this video they made for their kickstarter project. It's genius.


Thanks Alexis, for the antenna up!
