'N-word' to be removed from children's classics in Germany

 RT: "Thienemann Verlag, one of Germany's oldest publishers of children's books, has announced it will reprint Otfried Preußler's children's classic 'The Little Witch' with all instances of the 'n-word' removed from the text.
Founded in Stuttgart in 1849, Thienemann Verlag decided not to have the disputed words replaced, but deleted altogether."
