What do you think about deleting the "n-word" from a new version of "Huckleberry Finn"?

The option, "Let's rewrite ALL the classics" should be sarcastic. We already make euphemisms out of everything.

We need to tell the truth to each other and not attempt to soften the meanings of actions by making everything nice sounding. Slavery is a part of our national heritage. Just because we change the words does not mean it never happened. All it does is give future generations the impression that it didn't which in a sense is lying.
