Huck Finn Still Stirring the Pot

Leaning Straight Up’s daughter encounters the prevailing public school attitude of, “Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn is racist.” Sad, really, that to this day and age Mr. Twain’s book is so horribly misunderstood. His daughter’s poem is beautiful… (excerpt follows)

Yet I pull the same book out,
And point out the facts.
Racism isn’t just white,
It’s those of every race.
Racism is biting words,
Of hate,
To those of,
Another race.
