yahoo censors comment re: Huck Finn calling Jim a nigger

Mark Twain remains censored, and uncensored

i am amazed and very pleased by the unanimity of the below opinions. bowdlerization is awful, misleading, and destructive. if Huck called Jim a n!gger, it was because that was how Jim would be referred to at that time. it is a learning experience not to be avoided by the PC police. notice that i cannot spell the "n" word correctly because yahoo would censor this comment.

p.s. they censored it anyway.
