Publisher removes “N-word” from children’s book “Jim Knopf”
Quick Glance: "Jim Knopf": Why Removing the "N-Word" is Not Enough
  • The removal of the "N-word" in the "Jim Knopf" books is long overdue and calls for more responsibility in children's literature.

  • Racism should not be perpetuated through problematic books. Children should be properly educated about racism without hurtful stereotypes.

  • Publishers need to clearly distance themselves from racist language and remove problematic depictions from children's books.

  • Parents, educators, and teachers should carefully research the content and narratives of children's books before reading to combat racism.
