The decision to remove "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain and "To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee came after a parent filed a complaint, WAVY reported. The parent cited excessive racial slurs as the reason for wanting the books banned, Superintendent Warren Holland told the news station.

Least there's no blaming this on millenials as per usual since this was a parent.

Fanaticism is responsible for this.

This is how fascism comes. Not with a bang but a whimper.

Technically, some millenials are old enough to have kids in secondary school.

Ah yes, nothing says "it didn't happen" like banning literature.

This.
Whoever made this decision is seriously missing the point of what these books are about.

I remember how my primary school banned The BFG because a parent got upset with the section that talks about the Giant and Sophie drinking the fizzy potion and fart-flying. "WIZZ POP, WIZZ BANG!"

Just another day of sensitive souls erasing history and facts because it doesn't fit into their safe space.

We are raising a whole new generation of these shielded snowflakes, how is this generation going to deal with things like terrorism in the future? Are they going to censor news of terrorism in the country because it hurts their feelings? Oh wait, that's already happening...
