The problem of Slytherin

Resolved: The portrayal of Slytherin House in the Harry Potter books, on balance, detracts from the series as a whole. For the purposes of the debate, only information contained in the original series (not Pottermore or the movies) is canon. I am affirming. The first round is for acceptance, second for constructives, and third and fourth for rebuttals. No new arguments in the last round. I look forward to the debate!...

Rap Battle

This is a rap battle, self-explanatory. Censored cursing is allowed, but some things are over the line, such as very aggressively sexual or racist lyrics, etc. I'll let voters decide what crosses this line. There's a 48 hour debating period and a 2,000 character limit. My opponent must pass on a round, either first or last, depending on preference. Thanks in advance to whoever accepts....

The Sith are not evil.

mrPrime

My assertion is that the Sith are not inherently "evil." So first I will define my terms so we may avoid ambiguity. Sith - Fictional dark-jedi order from Star-Wars. Evil - "profoundly immoral and malevolent." Immoral - Not conforming to accepted standards of morality. Round 1: Introduction Round 2: Arguments/Rebuttal Round 3: Rebuttal/Conclusion 72 hours per round. 10k Characters.

Haiku diss debate

thett3
YYW

This is a Haiku diss debate. I've made it impossible to accept because I want my opponent to be someone I know. The debate is to remain a tie as I don't want it factoring into anyones ranking. The first round is for acceptance. After that, each round each debate gets to make 5 Haiku's dissing their opponent. PM me or post in the comments if you're interested....
