eBay needs to lift the ban on Black Metal sign now

In recent time, it has been observed that the online auction corporation eBay has been preventing the sales of a specified genre of music. The genre mentioned is the sub-genre of heavy metal commonly referred to as Black Metal. Some examples of artists who have been excluded from the eBay listings are: Burzum, Darkthrone, Mayhem, Nokturnal Mortum and others. Ebay has deemed these artists as openly hateful and offensive. This is taken from a direct encounter between eBay and a registered eBay seller: AbyssRecords.
In response to this information, it should be observed that Black Metal is not the only genre of music that could be deemed offensive or hateful. Such musical genres as rap and hip-hop can equally be perceived as offensive to many people. Throughout its history, much of rap music has had anti-Caucasian, anti feminism, explicitly sexual, and pro-violence themes. Not only is it just as offensive as black metal, but it is far more accessible. Rap and hip-hop grace the airwaves of high-frequency radio stations and popular television channels on a daily basis, as opposed to black metal that has been shunned to private listening on the Internet.
In addition, if one were to take some time to thoroughly listen to rap music and black metal, it would likely be determined that the negative themes in rap music were much easier to understand than those in black metal.

The following are some lyrics from the song Bitches Aint Shit by Snoop Dogg:
I used to know a bitch named eric wright
We used to roll around and fuck the hoes at night
Tight than a mutharfucka with the gangsta beats
And we was ballin on the muthafuckin compton streets
Peep, the shit got deep and it was on
Number 1 song after number 1 song
Long as my muthafuckin pockets was fat
I didnt give a fuck where the bitch was at
But she was hangin with a white bitch doin the shit she do
Suckin on his dick just to get a buck or 2
And the few ends she got didnt mean nothin
Now shes suing cuz the shit she be doin aint shit
Bitch cant hang with the streets, she found herself short
So now shes takin me to court
Its real conversation for your ass
So recognize and pass to daz

The following are some lyrics from the song Lost Wisdom by Burzum:
While we may believe
our world - our reality
to be that is - is but one
manigestation of the essence

Other planes lie beyond the reach
of normal sense and common roads
But they are no less real
Than what we see or touch or feel

Denied by the blind church
'cause these are not the words of God
- the same God that burnt
the knowing

In response to the presented information, I nominate that black metal be reinstated into the eBay listings, or offensive music like rap be removed from the listings as well. I strongly suggest lifting the ban on black metal and to not ban any type of music and let those who are offended by it ignore it because they all possess that ability. EBay claims to discourage discrimination, when they themselves are discriminating an entire genre of music because a group of people who discriminate in their own ways complained to them.

    Safe the distribution of this aristocratic craft. It doesn't hurt anyone and is only enjoyed in closer circles. Its effects are just thought provoking and of (mainly (North-) European) ethnic-centric or naturalist romantic nature, while "rap" only promote
