Classic novels banned in schools due to racial slurs

-
These classic novels are on students' summer reading lists, but now one school district is banning them because of racial slurs. 
 
A county in Virginia banned "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and "To Kill a Mockingbird" after one mother expressed her concerns over the books use of the n-word.
 
She filed a request to have the district find alternative books. 
 
Parents and community members are weighing in on the decision and there's a mixed reaction.
