Colin Kaepernick Kneeling during anthem.

Je suis contre Colin Kaepernick de se mettre à genoux pendant l’hymne nationale de l’États-Unis parce que le drapeau représente la pays et la liberté des religions et liberté de parole. Colin Kaepernick n'a pas respecté le drapeau quand il a refusé de lever pendant l'hymne de nationale des États-Unis. Ça c’est un manque de respecte parce que, le drapeau représente la pays et re...

An Outside Intruder Did Not Kill JonBenet Ramsey

This debate is for BSH's tournament. I will be defending the idea that an outside intruder (anyone other than the parents or brother of the victim) did NOT kill JonBenet Ramsey. As such, I assume the full BOP. I must prove, beyond a REASONABLE doubt, that one of JonBenet's mother, father, and brother was responsible for her death. Standard format....

Colin Kapernick rejecting the US anthem

KinqBleachXIII

Honestly, I agree that this way was the best way to approach standing up for black rights. Would you have rather had him burn the flag or attack someone in the name of black rights? With this way of not standing up during the anthem he made his point without causing any physical harm to anyone....

Abortion

Homicide is the deliberate taking of a person"s life by another person. If someone commits homicide, they can be put in prison for a life sentence, or under certain circumstances be executed. Abortion is the deliberate "procedure" of taking an unborn baby's life. The key word is deliberate. In both cases however, someone"s life is taken by another person on purpose. In 1973, the supreme court"s decision over Roe Vs Wade effectively legalized abortion in all fifty states, opening abortion clinics...

4 Convincing Arguments for the Existence of Slenderman

4 Convincing Arguments for the Existence of Slender Man Slender Man is a faceless, supernaturally tall man in a business suit with extendable arms or tentacles for those of you living in a North Korean media blackout and have missed all the recent news surrounding the "Slender Man stabbings". It began as an admitted online fictional creation that spawned a "lost footage" series on YouTube. Slender Man is an entity whose motivation is never explained and, much like my ex-husband, enjoys stalki...

Should Prisoners be allowed to vote?

Oreo1088
Joey888

I believe that prisoners should get the chance to vote if they please. People think they should not get the right to vote because they broke the law or did something terrible. Some of them may have been committed for a crime that they didn't do or just a minor crime. A certain person if they get into office may or may not help improve prisons. That's a lot of votes that could possibly be casted if they allowed them. It would count towards what ever state that they were imprisoned in. They are pe...
