I remember when I was studying US literature the prof actually asked us if we wanted to read this book because of material she thought the class would deem offensive.

None of us cared as we understood both the context it was written in and the importance of language.

In fact, we found it really important to understand and know why the language was chosen and how it can impact our reading of it.
