Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" has been hailed as one of the great American novels. According to Publishers Weekly, NewSouth Books plans to release a version of "Huck Finn" that cuts the "n" word and replaces it with "slave." The slur "injun," referring to Native Americans, will also be replaced. This has stirred up major discussions across social media platforms. Tonight we're joined by Attorney and Pop-Culture Critic, "The Siren" Photobucket (www.heathesiren.wordpress.com) to discuss the topic of of censorship, the 1st Amendment, and the N-word.
