NewSouth Books is publishing the classic Mark Twain novel “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” without the “N” word. The word appears in the novel 219 times. Many are questioning if making the novel more politically correct is an excuse for censorship. Dr. Boyce Watkins of Syracuse University says that the removal of the “N” word from the book is a good decision.

 The publisher will replace the word with “Slave”.
