Dear Mr. Sherman Alexie,
I would like to thank you for writing this book. I think it really opened my eyes and showed how bad some reservations really are. I changed me because that native americans had it all meaning they had successful casinos but I now realized that some do but most don’t.
I think it is extremely wrong to stereotype people by how they look. Eve-ryone does it even if they don’t mean to. We do to everybody like muslims must terrorists. Mexicans must be illegal. Black people are criminals.
I really came to talk to you about why books should not be banned. I don’t books should be banned because they are kids they cannot be sheltered forever. They need to learn about bad things in the world so when they are older the new generation can fix these problems. Kids will learn about sex and racism when they are older so books like that identify with kids more anyways and if kids are like me then they will like books that identify with them and aren’t about things that they don’t care about. I also think that this book should not be banned because most kids nowadays talk like that anyway cursing out their best friends is what kids do to have fun sometimes.
In conclusion True Diary of A Part Time Indian teaches kids that relationships are not forever so make them count and you have to make a tough decision sometimes so it is up to you to make the decision. I also think that books that deal with topics like death and poverty and racism and bullying what do p
arents that try and ban books want us to read. I think that everyone should read this book because it gives everyone a great perspective on why american indians are in poverty
