To Kill A Mocking Bird N-word Passage / Page 174 refers to a section of the classic 1960 novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee in which various characters say "n*gger". The novel, which tackles the subject of racial inequality, is widely read in American high schools. Online, teens began discussing the awkward situation of having to read the book aloud in class through memes on Twitter and Reddit.


In 1960, Harper Lee published the book To Kill a Mockingbird and since its release, there have been numerous parent complaints about the book's language and use of the n-word.[4] On January 10th, 2019, Redditor El_Papa_Jackal posted the first meme on the subject sharing an image of Thanos to r/Teenagers[1] with the caption, "Reading To kill a mocking Bird in class and the N word is in your paragraph to read" (shown below). The post gained over 1,000 points (99% upvoted) in a year.
