Most of us would think "here we go again" about yet another Christmas controversy. The latest one is a song that dates all the way back to 1944, and it has been covered by numerous artists since that time.
If the song had been produced in 2018, we'd all be outraged because of the revelations of the MeToo movement. However, I think its necessary to use a little context here.

"Huck Finn" was first banned in March of 1885, a month after its publication, and it has managed to be banned by someone pretty much every year after that, and it is STILL one of the top 100 banned books, even today.
