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.

MODERATOR;  Please delete this thread.  It has devolved into a racist and FAUX 'newsish" ignorant redneck rant.  I suppose you saw that coming before.  If it is not deleted, can we assume that taking only the other side is poitically incorrect for the site?
@elangley01 then leave.

Saying that rap isn’t music is straight up racist. Lots of ignorance in this thread and in this site in general.
"...the posts become a vehicle for the poster’s self righteousness or indignation; regardless of which side of the coin is being expressed."

Finally another one.

I suppose you see who looks how and who is where. Speaking of made-up ideas presented as something other than that.
