49. This wasn't "Uber liberals"

The company that publishes the books made a business decision.

The original Nancy Drew books were quite racist in their depiction of African-Americans. They were later re-written to remove those stereotypes. The company that owned the books did that.

The most famous mystery story of all time, Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None,” was originally titled “Ten Little N-words.” The publishers later changed the name since it was offensive. Was that censorship? Nope. A business decision.
