Racist of Not One of the most controversial books of all time is Mark Twains Huckleberry Finn Huck Finn uses the N word over 200 times and has been banned from many public schools all over the United States Many people have asked the question is Huck Finn a racist book that portrays negative views of African Americans Also many wonder whether Mark Twain was a racist man Although there are many racists comments in Mark Twains book Huckleberry Finn the book isnt racist because it shows multi-cultural races being friends it aids the reader into understanding the book and it also portrays how life was really back in the 19th century Huck Finn shows how life was back in the early 1800s and how black people were viewed This is shown when Mark Twain makes Jim superstitious about bad luck brought by the snakeskin and making him thinking he was encountered by the devil when it was really Tom playing a trick Many people think of blacks as dumb and gullible when that isnt true at all A quote that shows this in the book is when Aunt Sally asks Huck whether anyone is hurt or not and he says no mum just killed a nigger White people back then portrayed blacks as only being slaves and nothing else and Mark Twain did a good job of showing that Although this book shows how life was back then the racist comments are in the book to help the reader understand the book better In Huckleberry Finn there are many parts that are in the book to give it appeal Some examples of this are when Jim talks using his southern accent People may interpret this as Mark Twain making black people look dumb but he actually is giving the book character The N word is used over 200 times and this also gets the reader to understand and like the book better Huck Finn
