No, that would infringe on free speech
They should be banned from schools
Older literature with outdated racial portrayals should have warning labels
All literature should carry ratings for racist content, similar to movie ratings
Yes, any literature deemed racist should be banned
Other, please explain
It makes no sense to attempt to combat racism with censorship.
I would like to be able to research texts as needed.
"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
By the standards of PC racism today, the Bible would be banned.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
All I'm saying is it's appropriate to include racism as the criteria for not including a book in a school library. Not always, as I've noted, but sometimes. Is that controversial? Is the idea that not all books are suitable for children controversial? I firmly oppose banning books for adults.
I think the Anarchists Cookbook and The Poor Mans James Bond should be required reading in Jr. High.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
