The word nigger appears in To Kill a Mockingbird. And even the dimmest herb can tell you that the book champions inner goodness, tolerance, etc. Thus it must be bowdlerized or banned.
Kneejerk activist Mum Garvey flaunts her intellect: 'I was like, this is 2004, and this is still being read in schools? [My son] started pointing out the words in the book. It's inappropriate.' Because literature and nigger-baiting are the same, of course. She didn't read the book.
Sometimes I think I write poems for everyone. Then I realize, Oh, not Mum Garvey.
