In addition to my comment below, let me just say another book by Twain was banned for seventy five years. It was about a 17 year old girl who become commander in charge of an an army. It was called Joan of Arc. Hmmm, maybe that should be banned again for using words like "wench."

Of course, she's joking about not knowing Twain. Since she didn't go to college, probably the only thing she actually knows about him is that he has been banned from schools for writing the first satire of racism. I think she is kowtowing to the black sector who aren't grateful for what he did, because she, like they, refuse to go to college and actually get educated.
