Is your name CB129923? The question was address to him , NOT YOU.
Are you name CB129923? The question was address to him , NOT YOU.
You really think you have told something special, when you didn’t. The words you written has much worth of a bucket of spit in a hot July day.You said, “About 90% of the Black vote went to Obama. Any of those who voted for Obama because of his race would be classified as being racist by this definition from Webster.Black America has been voting Democratic in Presidential candidate since FDR. It has been 77%-95% osince President Johnson. Thank you for proving my point that you are a lair.Blacks and those who are mixed with black are considered Black based on the One drop rule. Then again, I guess I am the dumb N!99#R to you anyway despite I gave historial facts.You a few weeks ago with another birther Thor said I aam crinimal and a pirate. Do you have proof I am one. Since I am MAN ENOUGH to sign my name to my comments now, why won’t you go to the police and have me arrested?-J Williams.
Cb129923.Where did I say “All whites are racist”? If you want to discuss something with me, then you should at least be honest. I was going to reply to your original statement in the most harsh terms. I though that we could be more genile, but your words prove other wise.
So here is the the orignal reply to you.
“I do not know whether to laugh or be angry. On top of that and more important question is should I consider your post as lack in understanding my comment or a cheap way in trying to start a fight? MMMMMMM With the lie you said about my comment. I think it is the latter. First thing, I think anyone with a brain stem would know what I mean by " Southern Conservative Anglo-Saxon view on Blacks". The comment I was making was in context of the novel, the time period, and the writer himself. But no, you foolishly decided to attack and assassinate my character. You do this by hiding behind a computer screen. Don’t try to play the victim card, it is you, YES YOU, who lied and said I called you this and that. It is you who try to start a fight over a book? It is you who try to put words in my mouth. Your foolishness is proof for the need to educate people, not to ship them to school for babysitting. It is your foolishness is proof for more funding on mental illness. The problem with you is that I am very, very, very proud of who I am. Plus, I can "tell it like it is" and use comments, history, etc of my enemies to back it up. Unlike you, I am man enough to sign my real name on here. When will you be man (or woman) enough to do the same? With your lying and ingrornce, you do not deserve my respect even if you are a liberal or a minority. I respect men despite of who they are, but not cooperheads in tall weeds. Before you consider your reply foolishly to me, make sure you look up the meaning of CONTEXT”.
Here is my name. I am not hiding behind a computer.

The language of Huck Finn should never change because it presents the real and honest view of the Anglo-Saxon and Southern conservative view on those who are black. Some of those on this forum might have the right to express himself on this forum, however they do not have the moral authority to speak. One poster think it is “right” to use humor on this. One poster decided to use black comedians to justify his own hidden hatred. There is one poster who is sounding board. Months ago, he made a lie that Mexicans/Hispanics have nothing to offer, or didn’t offer anything to the United States. .
In frontier days, Indian Joe would have called Jim... Buffalo.
Remember the Native Americans called the negro army units buffalo soldiers.
"I'm circumventing censorship," said Gribben.
Astonishing, isn't it, when a bald-face lie is paraded as truth. On the plus side, if it weren't for people like this, George Orwell wouldn't have been able to write Animal Farm or 1984.
Gribben also responded to the hostile reception in newspaper editorial writers: "I think they are out of touch with the world of high school education these days." Sounds to me like he hasn't spent much time in a high school lately. I hear this and much, much more.
Anybody who calls himself a Twain scholar and pushes this fraud should be required to forfeit his credentials.
Context is everything - it is nonsense to censor this classic work. I, for one, do not want to see you end tea.
Ishmael...I sincerely hope the censors at the Advocate do not delete your thougtful, accurate and humorous post. You have said what, I believe, most of us think and said it in a way that should make anyone understand how ridiculous it is to change Twain's work. Thank you for your post. It was exceedingly well done.
Leave the books alone. Leave the wording as is. It is a historical piece of art. To change the wording is to change the book itself. You would not cover the statue of David would you? This is the same thing. Let the "N" word stay as published. If the "N" word offends you then don't read the book. simple as that!
"A lack of requests, however, has so far kept a new, less controversial version of Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn out of their collections.
LESS controversial?! Some interloper takes a classic work of literature and rewrites it to suit his whims and this makes it LESS controversial?! Kudos to all librarians who saw through the attempt at politically-correct censorship and refused to stock it.
Gribben is a coward who disingenuously claims that he's circumventing censorship. In fact, he's raising censorship to a higher level.
