TINTIN IN THE CONGO: A RACIST BOOK TO BURN
I never would have thought that a comic book drawn by Hergé was considered how racist. The book “Tintin in the Congo” is the aim of some kind of people that don’t like what is written in. They consider that it contains imagery and words of hideous racial prejudice.

In the time that the book was written Hergé wanted to do a portrait of society that he was living in that moment, with the characteristic elements with which a comic is configured: “to exaggerate the reality a lot and go where the man can’t go, so travel to a fantastic world”.

Sure that there are millions of books more offensive than the drawn by Hergé. But not for that it’s question to burn the book or to put a band of paper saying that:

“WARNING, THE CONTENT IS OFFENSIVE AND IF YOUR
CHILDREN READ THIS BOOK, THEY CAN TURN RACIST.”

I want to propose too for Stephen King’s books a band where you can read:

“WARNING IF YOU READ THIS BOOK,
YOU CAN DIE OF A HEART ATTACK”

Or for example, for Anne Rice’s books:

“WARNING, IF YOU READ IN THE NIGH,
A VAMPIRE COULD BITE YOU”

The “Holy Inquisition” is turning, be careful thus you write!

This blog is an amusing meditation about things that happen in this crazy world. Fiction and reality go hand to hand and sometimes one doesn’t know if the facts are false or true. Any resemblance that you can find here with the real world is purely coincidental or not. One thing is sure, all the content of this blog is 100% original by the author.
