According to Publishers Weekly, NewSouth Booksâ€™ upcoming edition of Mark Twainâ€™s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn will remove all uses of the word “n*gger” and replace it with slave. The new book will also remove usage of the word Injun. Some people find this very controversial because the book is a part of history and is using the words to show the racial issues.
Alan Gribben is the man behind the change, and says it’s not trying to censor the book but rather update it. â€œRace matters in these books,â€ he said. â€œItâ€™s a matter of how you express that in the 21st century.â€
