High School Cancels To Kill a Mockingbird Because of the “N” Word – Rap Music, However, Lives On

Will the people who object to using “this word” in historical context please stand up.

Please, stand up.

STAND UP!

Oh, can’t hear me? What are you doing, wearing headphones listening to rap?

Yup, I can hear the n-word from here. Moron.

The Shorewood School District on Thursday, Oct. 11 pulled the plug on Shorewood High School’s production of “To Kill a Mockingbird” due to concerns about potential protests.

Opening night jitters have been replaced with disappointment for cast members.

“It was like being punched in the stomach,” said Will Aldana, student. “Sadness is the first reaction.”

The show was canceled just hours before the curtain was set to open.

“Three hours away from us opening and just to hear it’s hard,” said Aldana.

The reason is due to a racial slur in the script.

Often required reading in schools, “To Kill a Mockingbird” dives into issues of segregation and race.

The drama club warned its audience online with a description of the play from the Shorewood School District’s website:

“To Kill a Mockingbird, which takes place in Alabama in the 1930s, reflects a difficult and ugly time in American history. Thematic issues of racism and segregation are prevalent. To accurately and honestly complete the narrative, the ‘n-word’ will be used in the production. The fact that our society still struggles to truly embrace racial equality symbolizes that our work is not yet done and that Harper Lee’s Mockingbird is as relevant in 2018 as it was in 1960, when the story was published. Our fidelity to the production of this play from the 1930s does not condone the use of the ‘n-word,’ in any context, for example in music lyrics, friendly banter, or discussions today.”

Students like Will Aldana say being uncomfortable with hearing the word is the point.

  2. I could tell you stories from the sixties where I was nice to Negros and Negros were nice to me. But the fucking niggers and the fucking media have made it impossible for me to tell the story.
    I watched CNN today, where Don Lemon gut laughed when some asshole said Negros can’t read.. It turned my stomach. The scumbag couldn’t shine the shoes of Ben Carson, Walter Williams, Shelby Steele,Condi Rice, Condace Owens and so many others.

  6. History is malleable. What was once condoned is now verboten. Hell, damn near everyone today, the product of government education believes that slavery was the central issue of our Civil War.

    That right there proves how effective a well executed propaganda campaign can not just conceal a truth, but replace one.

  7. I just found this quote (in my cryptoquote game puzzle) today. I’d never heard it. It does not bode well for the future. ….Lady in Red

    “The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” …..Abraham Lincoln

  8. I could tell you about a ‘difficult and ugly’ time in Cicero, IL in the early 60’s. These snowflakes make me sick.

  9. For the love of God I cannot understand why anyone would be against people understanding the poison of racism brought to bear by Ms. Lee’s brilliant work, “To Kill A Mockingbird”. Not to mention that Boo Radley scared the crap out of me, until I found out is was just Robert Duval.

  10. An old Army buddy of mine used to say, “There’s only three things I can’t stand: N*ggers, Mexicans, and people with race prejudice.”

    The kicker? He was an American Indian.

    Unlike some Democrat Senators I could name.
