*Could there be a realistic book dealing with that place and time which did not include the n-word?

*It was supposed to make people uncomfortable, you idiots..

*Why would any decent human being take comfort in the fate of Tom Robinson?

*I believe that book was an incredibly brave one and I hate to see it besmirched now...

Agreed fully. Same here with Animal Farm and 1984.

I have yet to read Harper's sequel....albeit a written prequel...I read the reviews and they not too good.
