An anti-racism classic is... racist?

Sean Gallagher posts today on an Indiana high school that decided to cancel its theater production of To Kill a Mockingbird because the local NAACP chapter said that it might foster use of the "n" word by students.

Unbelieveable. I just read (well, listened to) the classic novel on tape last winter, and it's one of the greatest "arguments" against racism I've ever seen.

I guess the local NAACP chapter can't see the forest for the trees, or however that goes.
