I enjoyed watching the movie on the controversies of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn People discussed their own personal likes and dislikes of the authors Mark Twain use of the word Nigger I was able to listen to both sides of the story I agree and disagree with both sides I am stuck in the middle If I had to choose one side I would not be able to In the next few paragraphs I will give my feelings and ideas on the movie and the use of the word in the book First in the movie that I watched there is a mother of an African-American teenage girl who was supposed to read this book for English class The word Nigger used in this book offended her so she took this issue to her mother who took it further to the School Board Committee and so on The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was written in the 1800s where it was normal to own slaves Although some people did not agree with slave traders there was no law saying it was illegal I think that people need to understand that when this book was written these things took place and these words were said I feel as though we are past this issue now a day and we should look at this book not only as reading curriculum but also as a history lesson Mark Twain was a very kind hearted person and I dont believe this word was used to offend anyone If you read the very beginning of the book called Mark Twain and Huck Finn it explains a little bit about Mark Twain and his writings Huckleberry Finn is a beautifully balanced combination of humor and horror of loneliness and love This book is about life back then in a childs mind Also I disagree with the mother in the movie taking it as far as she did I do
