You can't make this up, folks.
What book could be more P.C. than To Kill a Mockingbird, the tear-jerking tale of racial heroism that reportedly has been ranked second only to the Bible in terms of social impact? Yet to make her point, author Harper Lee had to use the "N-word," now considered by liberals to be a blasphemy more horrific than the darkest passage in the Necronomicon.
Okaloosa County, Florida educrats ruled that the unspeakable word be censored from a production of Mockingbird at Fort Walton Beach High School, in accordance with local black militants' demands.
The fact is that 'the word' is a part of history. It existed, and still exists (ask any rapper...) Like other bad stuff, one cannot simply erase it. In the context, (Mockingbird) just as in Huckleberry Finn, it's ....there.
Killing Mockingbird to be PC? That's a horrible price to pay.

Sometimes you just count your blessings. To Kill a Mockingbird is a truly awful book, and if the word 'nigger' saves my children from having to read it, then so be it. Too bad I can't think of anything that offensive in Pride and Prejudice.
