you have to realise ("you" = anyone growing up) that not everyting you see, read or meet will be perfectly wonderful
there's open slave market in libya though (after freedomizing the country)
beyond that yeah i'm not inclined to mess with someone's piece of work
all you can do is try to make the point once
i would probably just try to explain that the first time, "oh they say such-and-such in this book, bc it was a long time ago, when .....slavery....etc...... and we don't do that any more"
and i was reading it to a kid
if the book had got something i felt was -- distasteful or unethical in it
changing original art is criminal
