I think I contributed to the above mudslinging with my response ("Why Not") to starberry. My intention with that post was to invite a meaningful discussion on HOW whites pose a threat to hip hop's integrity and future. Judging from the response starberry gave, I don't think I was successful in opening up the question as intended, but instead evoked an emotional response. Part of the reason for that was that my post was too confrontational. Instead of focusing on my perspective, I was questioning starberry's. You offer some great guidelines on how to engage in these kinds of discussions, which is definitely needed (and appreciated).
