Actually, it was probably because the nursery rhyme, "Ten Little N-words," features prominently in the plot. But still, why? The book was published in the UK in 1939. By that time even America knew the title was offensive, and changed it to the much classier, And Then There Were None. In addition, all instances of the N-word were changed to "Indian" (because, you know, it was still cool to hate on redskins).
Not true. The phrase "there's a ****** in the woodpile" still is used in the book
