" BILOXI, Miss.– "To Kill a Mockingbird" is being eliminated from a junior-high reading checklist in a Mississippi institution district.

The Sunlight Herald reports that Biloxi administrators pulled the novel from the 8th-grade educational program today. Institution board vice head of state Kenny Holloway states the district got issues that some of the book's language "makes individuals uncomfortable."

Published in 1960, the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Harper Lee deals with racial inequality in a little Alabama community.

A message on the school's internet site states "To Kill A Mockingbird" instructs pupils that compassion and also compassion do not rely on race or education. Holloway claims various other books can educate the very same lessons.

The book stays in Biloxi college collections.

    If To Kill A Mockingbird makes you uncomfortable, then that means you REALLY need to read it.

    This ban made me watch the movie adaption (with Gregory Peck) of the novel. It’s a beautifully narrated intense story.

    African Americans were treated disgustingly. And we should NEVER forget it! You cant heal a wound by pretending it didnt happen. Healing is sometimes a very painful process…..

    I thought they banned the book because it is Biloxi and they are racist as hell.

    I’m on the fence…. I live in Alabama and trust me when I saw that our history is not forgotten, we are reminded of it with great frequency… I do feel that ‘To Kill A Mocking Bird’ is a amazing example of American literature and it speaks volumes about our society, but I do understand the school systems reasoning. The Schools want to ban it, not because of the content, but because of the constant complaints. Whether those complaints are justified or not isn’t their point to argue. The complaints make teaching difficult, it interferes with the process of learning.. so the schools want to eliminate the problem.  My personal opinion tells me the this book should be a required read for both HS and College level students, because of their ability to discuss the topics at a meaningful level. IMO, middle school is too young to ‘discuss’ the topics intellectually and so the derogatory terms in the book are the only point educators could discuss with them. The book is monumental and should be used to do more than talk about the ‘N’ word, its about society’s irrational position on race.

    The book has been in classrooms for 50yrs. Now people are complaining? No, it’s because dumb liberals have to be offended by EVERYTHING. Racists aren’t trying to get it banned because they say people who use the word are scum. If that were true they would have been pushing hard for the ban decades ago. When it was more racist back then than it is now.

    It’s mississippi after all. What do we expect from these people?

    This is the one American tradition conservative whites are willing to put to rest very admantly…reading Too Kill A Mockingbird in middle schools and high schools throughout America. Because it leaves them a white guilt complex, even though conservatives don’t feel guilty about shaming Colin Kaepernick protesting against racism in America or shaming Black Lives Matter for protesting against police brutality. This is the major fight for conservatives…eradicating anything that leads to white guilt in school curriculums.
