Op-Ed Says That ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ Might Teach Kids Sexual Assault Survivors Lie

NBC has published an op-ed with a rather interesting take on the Mississippi school district’s decision to eliminate the book “To Kill A Mockingbird” from its curriculum. According to the author, the book probably shouldn’t be discussed in classrooms, as it could “complicate the modern ‘believe victims’ movement.” In the book, a character named Mayella Ewell, who is white, falsely accuses Tom Robinson, who is black, of raping her. Robinson is convicted of rape even when it becomes clear he is innocent of any crime.
