Linkage: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2001812385_huckfinn11m.html What bothers me in this situation is not that this teen girl does not want to read the book -- that I have no qualms with. But what I do have a problem is, is the NAACP's immediate involvement, and claim of racism in the Renton School District. As far as I can tell, this story which has been posted on several news sites, and local news affiliates, is not complete. It would seem that the girl is being disciplined for outbursts at school in direct correlation to the book, which under any circumstance is unacceptable. I am also inclined to suspect any situation in which the NAACP claims racism, as it is often unfounded -- not to say that they are always wrong. Your people's views?
