Censorship & Samuel L. Jackson

I realize that it is banned books week, and this is about movies, but the point that is made is the same either way.

This is not an appropriate video to watch with your children.  Seriously.

Don’t blame authors, libraries, schools, bookstores, or publishing companies because you can’t be bothered checking to see if Fifty Shades of Grey is an appropriate book for your “very advanced” twelve year old.  Read the summary.  Ask a librarian or teacher.  Use the internet.  Arrrrgh!

Oh, and for another banned book?  Do yourself a favor and pick up the audio book version of Go the F*ck to Sleep, read by Samuel L. Jackson, written by Adam Mansbach.  It’s on YouTube, but I don’t know if it’s official so I won’t post the link.  And in case you weren’t sure, it’s not a kids’ book.

Happy (adult) reading.
