An Important Note: These reactions are shared by real people–and as a talk show would put it: The views and opinions of these people do not necessarily state or reflect my own.
How would you define book discrimination?
Not allowing others to read a book because its content does not follow his or her own principles. I looked for a copy of Stephen King’s Carrie on our school library and found none. Since I’m in a Catholic school, they don’t have a copy.
How do you feel about it?
Reading something does not necessarily mean you’d believe it to be real. Book discrimination is unnecessary.
What do you think is the cause of book discrimination?
Religious and moral principles. Racism, sexism.
What would you do against it?
Reading should be done with an open mind. I’d explain to people that reading something fictional does not necessarily reflect my own values and principles.
Fill in the blanks. More people should read ________ by ________ because ________.
