I'm not going to try to explain or justify the behavior of Genius in this thread. Frankly, I agree with you that a lot of what he said to you was "foul" and I haven't deemed any of his posts worth responding to. I didn't intend to jump into the middle of your argument.

I was more interested in hearing what you thought about race and hiphop. I responded to your posts because a. I found your ideas on the issue interesting (if controversial) and b. I did not fully understand the argument behind what you were suggesting.

If you want to keep discussing these issues, that would be great. I got a lot out of reading k_orr's posts below, and am still trying to carry on a meaningful discussion of the issues you raised.

I think there is more to the issue than your argument with genius suggests, and
