Hi,
So I'm doing an essay for my sister about huckleberry finn. The question is "Define racism, easy enough, using the novel and research as evidence, debate whether Mark Twain through Huck Finn was a racist".
Please Help! It's due tomorrow. I will give the person who helps me the best 50 points, as I am getting $50. Please Help.

Love,
N

I know I read Huck Finn a while ago, but I can't remember whether Mark Twain, through Huck, was a racist. Instead, I'll treat you to a definition on racism:

Racism is the discrimination against a person or group of people because of skin color, eye color, etc.

Sorry I wasn't more of a help...

Hi,
Thanks for your help, but I already have the essay completed. I received a 72%, it would have been an 82% but I handed in a day late. I was pretty impressed, it was a grade 12 essay and I'm in grade 10.

Love,

For in everything it is no easy task to find the middle ... anyone can get angry—that is easy—or give or spend money; but to do this to the right person, to the right extent, at the right time, with the right motive, and in the right way, that is not for everyone, nor is it easy; wherefore goodness is both rare and laudable and noble.
