Ok, as a frequent writer of essays, I always appreciate a good argument, especially when they are 100% right (by right, I mean that they agree with me), like David L. Smith in 'Huck, Jim and American Racial Discourse." He, like me, contends that Clemens' work is anti-racist. the argument he uses includes many elements of arguments I make, but with the acception that he considers Tom Sawyer a little more intentionally cruel, while I tend to see him more as oblivious and delusional.

What I REALLY liked about the argument however, is that he sums up with not-all-that-descreetly calling his opposition idiots, which I can only occasionally resist doing. He accomplishes them by likening them to the character "Pap" from Huckleberry Finn.
