SkepticalAtheist
WampumDP

I traditionally only argue over the topic of religious views, but nevertheless I have a passion for arguing over a litany of topics. I stand on the Pro side of systematic racism existing against blacks within the United States, and my opponent will stand on the Con side disagreeing with the premise.The first round exists only for the purpose of introduction.I preemptively thank whoever decides to be my competitor at this point. ...

Flynn1999
Embracethecringeboi

Video games are frowned upon by parents as time-wasters, and worse, some education experts think that these games corrupt the brain. Playing violent video games are easily blamed by the media and some experts as the reason why some young people become violent or commit extreme anti-social behavior. But many scientists and psychologists find that video games can actually have many benefits " the main one is making kids smart. Video games may actually teach kids high-level thinking skills that the...

The first round is just for acceptance. I will be taking the pro argument, that feminism is a good and necessary thing. To be clear, the con side should argue about why feminism is unfair, unnecessary, or anything else against feminism. Thanks!...

LimeJello_yummy

If you accept this debate you must debate the topic, you cannot flake out on the debate if you cannot respond to my arguments. If you cannot do this, don't accept. Also, as a forewarning, I am going to use google documents so don't complain about it, if you don't like it, don't accept, you could just as easily use google documnts so I don't have any "advantage."...

Should A Presidential Candidate Have Previous Political Experience?

Band-Geek
Pro_Bankshot

I do not believe that just anybody should be able to enter the presidential election. There are requirements on age and citizenship, but none on political background. This year, Donald Trump, a successful businessman is running for president, having no experience in politics prior to this election. This election decides who our country's leader for the next four years is going to be. We have to be more careful about...

Legal-Dictionary.com defines reparations as "compensation for injury" and uslegal.com defines African American as "citizens of the United States who have origins in Africa". 1. My first contention is that it will be very hard to determine who will receive these reparations. a. according to theatlantic.com, "there are no living former slaves and their descendants are so mixed with others that it is...

Samsung Galaxy s7 is better than iPhone 6s

saharussj
Boatlet

The s7 is a lot better than the 6s in terms of everything. The specs, the screen, the hardware, the software. I have no idea why anyone would vote for apple at this point. Their innovation these days is just force touch, which is utterly useless. That was the only thing that changed from the 6 to 6s, which was disappointing. I can bet you if Samsung did this, no one would buy their phones. Unlike apple, the s7 was a LOT different than the s6, in a good way. They added micro sd card slots, water...
