Tintin and Snowy Censored

At a library in Stockholm, a person responsible for developing child culture, Behrang Miri, has decided to remove all the comic books with Tintin and his Foxterrier Snowy. The reason is that he believes the books to be racist, portraying Africans and Arabs the wrong way.

I do not care, it is censorship, no matter what the cause. I believe this makes Behrang Miri an enemy of culture and the freedom of expression. You should not surpress views you do not care, you should display them openly and confront them instead, telling the world why they are bad.
