Illegal Substitution

I recently wrote an opinion article for Intercamp, the student newspaper at Grant MacEwan. The subject was the recent announcement by NewSouth Publishing that it intends to produce a new version of the Mark Twain classics The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (original 1885). In the new version, the word “nigger” will be replace by the word “slave”.

Below is the link to the story. (The typos are not mine, and my original was changed.)

Illegal Substitution

I’d love to hear what you think.
