Huckleberry Finn to Be Republished With "Robot" Replacing the N-Word



Mark Twain's classic novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has been republished without the n-word, a term now deeply offensive to American sensibilities. But Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine think that this change doesn't go far enough. They have a Kickstarter project to republish the novel with the word "robot" replacing the n-word, and further alternations to the text to make the character Jim clearly a robot instead of a human. At the link, you can view a hilarious video that they've put together explaining the venture.

It's rather appropriate since the word "robot" is derived from a word for serf/slave.

(If they covered this in the video, I apologize.)
