Why such cruel and mean-spirited attacks--eloquent or not. Why sling
names around like "racist" so casually without really knowing the person
to whom you refer. I do not think words can be "racist" in their
essence and core--only in the intent of their speakers. The speaker,
then, may like Huck Finn have a good heart; though others may be judging
on how they want to hear or understand his language--as Huck's novel
keeps being mis-heard and misunderstood at times.
