Haven't read Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn since I was a kid, but other than the liberal use of THE"N"WORD by ignorant white people, and in the case of Huck's "pappy", white trash, the only facet of slavery ever mentioned is the fact that Huck's co-adventurer was a run-away-slave, and that only as a descriptive, just as Aunt Polly was "a Widow Woman".
Banning a charming piece of literature written and set in rural America prior to...but written soon after the Civil War, in a vain attempt to pretend that slavery never existed is ridiculous.
btw what I took away from "Mark Twain" was his literary device of narrating in the vernacular.
