The Democratc party is the party of racism

Kycam1
wolf24

In 1964 one of the greatest pieces of legislation passed the United States congress. This Act has come to be known as the Civil Rights Act. The question I have posed which political party has historically and even currently is racist. Whether explicit or implicit it is my personal belief that the Democratic party is the party of racism. Through exploring the history of each party I hope to illuminate which party has actually put racist policies in place. For this I will support that the Republic...

Doing a job you like is more important than a job that will get you more money, because, for a first, you may not be happy doing the job that gets you more money. In that case, you might not work very hard, and you will get fired, not having a job at all....

Independent Western thought is impossible

Capitalist_Zombie
Kalleth

I will be arguing that, due to the impact of media (all forms) and consumerism, it is now impossible to have an independent thought or a unique emotion. This applies to any person raised in a society where media is often being consumed. Somewhat rusty with debates and I forget some of the good house rules, so essentially just be fair....

AnthonyH
Jacesus

"White" people do not literally have "white" skin. "Black" people do not literally have "black" skin. It's pretty obvious (not many grey-skinned people running around are there?). In this day and age when we all seem to be so touchy about racial issues and skin colour, why are these inaccurate archaic terms still being used? To make it worse, "black and white" are opposites. These words also do nothing to define ethnicity. They should be made obsolete like the term "Red Indian"....

Political Correctness on college campuses

Agbonne

Political Correctness on a college campus has gone too far. I now cannot refer to anyone without worrying about offending them or "hurting their feelings," in some way. Is this really necessary to come up with a euphemism for every race, gender, religion, ability, disability, or mental state? Americans are plagued with hypersensitivity and in my opinion, this is weakening the strong backbone of this sovereign nation. The use of excessive political correctness is threatening the thought of the in...
