For some of us, apparently so. Publisher NewSouth Books are deciding to use the search & replace command in order to cleanse Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I like a good whitewashing (pun intended) of history especially when it is of the literary or historical bent. I think it would be a good idea to rewrite our civil war as a "disagreement" between the States too. While we're at it let's call Vietnam a draw. Wow! I'm feeling better about myself already.
Next time you listen to virtually any rap song, replace nigger with slave and see how it sounds. Samuel Clemens, you pimp, this is for you!
