Is Donald Trump "racist"

JamN

Hi, first of all even though me and whoever decides to join this debate I would like to say thank you anyway and I hope we have a interesting debate. I would like to start by asking how is Donald trump racist, i see lots of people throwing these "buzzword" labels around like xenophobic, transphobic, sexist, homophobic, racist, misogynistic or whatever they can make up that ends with "phobic" .Which makes me bring up a big question, when has trump ever said that he hates black people or that...

Corporate Bailouts

JoeYYC

This is a badly understood concept and when analyzed thoroughly there are NO justifications for corporate bailouts for several reasons. 1. The argument that "if we don't save company "xyz" the loss,of jobs and damage to the economy will be too great or "stunning" - I believe was the word you used. This is unverified, not widely accepted and has no theoretical basis to justify in the first place. How do you know what the impact of this company going under would be to the economy and what's...

Define Love Objectively

Sidex

The purpose of this argument is to define "love" objectively. I have created the theorem below that as not been proven wrong which objectifies morality. The link below it clarifies how the theorem was created. I will make a statement of love in regards to the theorem. You may counter that statement or you may counter my objective definition of "love". The con/against has the burden of proving me wrong in any aspect. The pro/for has the burden of not being wrong. My argument will include to you t...

Foucault's works are applicable to contemporary movements

JudgeSchreber

I'm defending Michel Foucault. All of his theories and most of their applications to present-day identity/social movements. I'm less interested in a "god says gays are bad" debate, so if that's your primary argument against The History of Sexuality, I'll pass. Anyone else is welcome to engage in well-developed argument. I'm looking forward to it. Feel free to start in the first round....

Would you buy the Porsche 911 Turbo S over Nissan GT-R Nismo

DaveKo2020

My friend constantly tells me that the GT-R is much better in terms of "bang for buck" and goes on about how the GT-R has one the fastest Nurburgring lap times. I'm a huge Porsche guy, and the 911 Turbo S is faster in a straight line (0-60mph in 2.5 seconds w/ launch control) and is more luxurious and refined. The Nismo starts around $150,000 and the Turbo S is around $200,000. The Porshce 911 Turbo S is obviously the better car overall, and if you had the $150,000 for the nismo, you have th...

Modi Vs. Vajpayee

anshul_sahni1

Modi, apart from his brief stint in the late 90s as a National Secretary of the BJP, never really had any major role in the national scenario. I mean, he never had the opportunity to reach out to the common people of across this large country. He had probably campaigned for may be a maximum of 2-3 days each for BJP in Assembly elections in a few states other than Gujarat. Yes, he has a very visible presence in the online and national electronic media. But India hasn't yet become a nation where a...
