    ....are easy enough to discern of course; but the company did not create the demand for this product, censorship of the book did.  And what is the reason that the book is challenged so often? Because its content offends people, and many people are offended by the use of racial slurs (although they are less offended by policies that have a detrimental and disparate impact on the same racial groups that they claim to care about when censoring books...a sad commentary on how we come to prefer the path of least resistance in all areas of life).

    The right wing is not responsible for that reaction.  

    For there our captors demanded of us songs, And our tormentors mirth, saying, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion."
