The political side – To Kill A Mocking Bird

In the 1930s politics in the South is blinded with racism. There was no fair trial because of the strong racism issues and discrimination. There were cruel punishments and mistaken accusations.

The book by Harper Lee, To Kill A Mocking Bird, had been banned among the reading list of the 8th grades in Mississipi. It was said that there were more than three hundred formal complaints against this book and that they were reported by schools, colleges, as well as public libraries in 2016.

A lot of it has to do with some of the languages that are used and also a theme that was used in the book which has to do with a black man who had been falsely accused of rape. So there’s sexual content on it as well. A school administrator stressed the fact that there is some language in the bok that makes people uncomfortable.

The Young Turks quote “The n-word appears nearly 50 other times throughout “Mockingbird” – almost always in dialogue. The novel won its author a Pulitzer Prize for fiction and ‘made the values of the civil rights movement – particularly a feeling for the god-awful unfairness of segregation – real for millions.'” – Michael Gerson, The Washinton Post

The main reason the book had been banned?

The book had been talking about events that happened in Alabama in the 1930s. The facts and the way it had been described in the book made people really uncomfortable. And for the book to be exposed to children will need more parental guidance for the children to understand better what the book had been talking about. True, it can be uncomfortable for other people. But is this enough reason for the book to be banned? Or is it the political side of it that the government or the people in authorities wouldn’t like people to see?
