Alabama Republican Wants to Ban Toni Morrison’s ‘The Bluest Eye’ from Schools

“Bowing to Tea Party pressure, Alabama State Senator Bill Holtzclaw¬†said this week that he thinks The Bluest Eye, Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison’s novel about a little black girl who wishes for blue eyes, should be banned in schools. He only made this statement after GOP members criticized him for opposing a repeal of the federal Common Core standards. The Bluest Eye is on the 11th grade reading list for the Common Core, a set of standards that has been adapted by more than 40 states.” (via The Atlantic Wire)
