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.

Interesting - and maybe a synecdoche for the divide these threads have revealed on this board.


There are those who hear "Richard Wright" and think of Floyd's keyboardist

There are those who hear "Richard Wright" and think of the great 20th century Black writer and figure

And hopefully there are those who think of both names and know which one to apply

I left out "Gospel", forgive me.
Interesting list:

Maybe we should all just stick to instrumentals.



Is it just me, or does anyone else have a  problem with "Norwegian Rap"?

Better Norwegian Rat?
