Wow shall I start with classic books and films? No let's start with T.V and what was never high culture- " Confederate flag gets Dukes of Hazard yanked" . Ok this was just entertainment to me, that I never recall being racist. Personally it offends me that they remove if from T.V.
Before we move on to " high culture" let's stick with T.V and " The Tom and Jerry Show" This cartoon series has been banned because its racist and too violent-what next Bugs Bunny?
Here is a great website " Banned Books Awareness and Reading for Knowledge Website" please check it out,this list of books is incredible " Tom Saywer" " Huck Finn" and I must mention " Gone with the wind" as we also have talk of banning the movie.
Personally I don't think any book should be Banned,Its ridiculous, so thankfully we have the ALA office for intellectual freedom which records hundreds of attempts by individuals and groups to have books removed from our libraries and class rooms.
Was what i have written offensive to you, or do I have a point this banning of our past, our entertainment and our classic literature is ridiculous?
Thanks for reading.
