5 Authors Who Have Been Called Out For Being “Racist”

Dickens is regarded as one of the greatest British authors of all time, and is known for his novels championing the downtrodden, such as ‘Oliver Twist.’ But he looked down on the native people in British colonies, believing their lifestyles to be uncivilized, and that colonization was for their own good. In fact, in his writings, Dickens compared Indian people to dogs. Following the Indian Mutiny of 1857, Dickens wished that he was the commander-in-chief in India so that he would be able to, “do my utmost to exterminate the Race upon whom the stain of the late cruelties rested.”
