Why were 291 responses removed about Rap?

I do not care for rap.  It is not music.  I abhor unbridled censorship.  Why were 291 posts systematically removed,  then the post deleted by moderators?   I did have a serious reply, followed by two tamer ones. This is not about me.

Good rap is art! My best pal was a street poet back in the day and his on the fly lyric ability had us enthralled. No form of expression should be castigated or suppressed. Musically, synthetic bass can be more fun than a tired old vivace cacophony.
Saying that rap isn’t music is straight up racist. Lots of ignorance in this thread and in this site in general.

That word is so overused and watered down that it doesn't mean anything anymore.

It certainly doesn’t mean what YOU think it means......
rfnoise2  It sounds as if you are not a fan of, as you call it, Intersectional Feminist Idealogy". That would simply mean you do not think that the various circles of experience do not combine where they itersect to help form a woman's status in life.  Is that actually possible?
Censorship is not the same as moderation in a privately owned forum. 
More lazy thinking by a few who desire to inflame discussion. The wedding cake maker  can refuse the gay couple but a pox on social media rules and guidelines to foster civility. 
I am disapppinted that this conversation has brought out the racist comments.  Maybe the moderators saw that comning,.  Worse, they might Possibly, they even read such comments in the deleted thread , then decided to delete the thread. and maybe they actually read such ninsenseWhy is the entire thread not being deleted.  As to whether I like certain types of music, and whether you guys do,  Where would our music be without the influence of black culture?  Instead of Blues, Rock, and Jazz, we would all be listening to such drivel as , "Yes, I have no bananas",  'I'm a little tea pot", and "A Tisket A Tasket"...  Whoops, Ella co-wrote that!  I do not say that rap cannot be music.  I simply avow that I personally prefer music made by people who master their musical instruments, rather than create droning sounds from computer programs that generate tones and tone clusters from non-musicians. This includes much of today's pop drivel, not just rap and certainly not just "black musical genres".  I have a rap album I listen to regularly.  It is also heavy metal, but I cannot mention it.  When I did, the post was deleted.  Here is a hint:  The lead singer's name is a drink, and he is a TV cop and car warranty ad personality.  I like the "Body" of his work and "Count" on him to stay in the forefront of civil rights.
