Editorial | The word that makes us uncomfortable

The Biloxi School District in Mississippi removed Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” off its eighth-grade reading list this month because, “There were complaints about it. There is some language in the book that makes people uncomfortable, and we can teach the same lesson with other books,” according to a report in the Biloxi Sun Herald.
