Why Ban Mockingbird?

NOTE: The following video was made with the best of intentions. Most people have a strong aversion to the frame visible below (which visualizes the number of times the term appears in To Kill a Mockingbird). That aversion is precisely the point. Those who seek to ban the novel often do so simply because for them, distributing the words out over 300 pages does not diminish its capacity to cause distress. I allow this video to be displayed in the faith that viewers who watch the video will recognize that despite its flaws in execution, there is merit to its overall message. — Mr. Turner
