How does keeping the queer and women slam benefit the poets who are not queer or a woman? If you want to eliminate side events along racially lines, then you must eliminate the side events along sexual orientation and gender lines as well so the side events look more conservative than liberal. Why stop there? Not everyone is a Hip Hop fan, so if you are going to allow the Hip Hop slam to remain, how about having a Heavy Metal, Country, Folk, or Punk slam? The side events that YOU want to remain I could very easily debate their importance or non-importance.
Just think outloud.
