Twain's book is the most eloquent denunciation of racism ever written. To include it here is simply dim-witted.

Nearly as dumb as putting the Narnia books on the list. The compilers are pooheads.

Huck Finn is seen by some as a critique of racism? By some? Finn chooses to reject not only the whole of his society but also to accept that he will go to hell for his loyalty to a friend, however black and enslaved. In so doing he becomes the only valid moral centre of his world.

The first great American novel. IMO still the greatest and one of the most morally sound books ever written.

Most of the others were pretty racist, though.

Pretty "thin" evidence here...

Never even heard of #4...

#3 is a CLASSIC textbook for ANTI-RACISM! Just because the characters talk in "era appropriate" ways doesn't mean we get to judge it by modern word definitions... N*gger was a perfectly acceptable word back then!

#1 THAT counts as 'racism'?? A fictional group that doesn't resemble any specific real-life one?

Lamest 'Top 10' yet!

Sorry @misscutieroo, it's not your fault!

The era in which a lot of these stories are based was a time where many of these 'third worlders' were ill-educated so they would come across as ignorant or even savage.
