Huckleberry Finn, revisited via Daily Show

Just what I said! Done better and funnier by The Daily Show's Larry Wilmore.

Brilliant response to stupid "political correctness" of "fixing" Mark Twain's original (and brilliant) text. Larry Wilmore calls it like it should be... if we were really both political and correct.

  1. Thank you--this provided my belly laugh for the day. It's been a few years since I've taught Huckleberry Finn...but given the demographic profile of my college, sadly the n-word IS something that has to be discussed. It is banned in a local library south of my campus.
