The most troubling element of the To Kill a Mockingbird phenomenon is how the book — published by J. B. Lippincott & Co. (self-righteous idiot Quakers from Philadelphia) — became required reading in most American High Schools, and the film is still being re-run on cable TV. That silly old gorgon (a $10 word for a repulsive hag) amassed a massive fortune peddling her stereotypical anti-southerner commie-crap. As a result, many of Lee’s captive White readers, or movie / TV viewers have grown up with a pathetic and suicidal guilt complex. And we can only guess how many Black readers or viewers grew up with a reinforced hatred of “the White man.”
To the extent that books and films such as To Kill a Mockingbird, Roots, The Green Mile etc create a climate of general hatred against Whites, particularly Southerners, can it not be said that Lee, much like the “Reverend” Jesse Jerkoff, the “Reverend” Al Charlatan, and Mr. & Mr. Obongo (prefix not a typo), are directly responsible for murderous violence toward innocent White people? Incitement, no matter how subtle, equals death; and To Kill a Mockingbird always was, still is, and always will be an incendiary piece of literature and cinema, as well as a piece of something else we will not mention.
