Is racial profiling necessary to protect yourself against violence?

ayayanouvet
Robert_Weiler

Statistically, some groups are more likely to commit violence against others, and others are more likely to be victimized. For example, if you are a young, non-hispanic black between ages 10-24, according to the CDC you are 2.9 times more likely to be murdered over any other ethnic group in America. (http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/youthviolence/stats_at-a_glance/hr_age-race.html) Also according to the DoJ, 64.7% of all black crimes of violence are committed against other blacks. ([table 4...

There is no valid reason for an adult to complain about being a virgin.

Guys, get some cash together and hire a prostitute. Make sure you shower first, and be a gentleman at all times. Don't use "it's illegal"/"it's immoral" as a cop-out; whining about your virgin status is worse. Plus, the fact that it's illegal never stopped anybody. Girls, go to a strip club, find the best-looking guy in there and ask him to have sex with you. Don't use "I want it to be special" as a cop-out; if you cared about that then you wouldn't be so desperate to lose your virginity in t...

Beings do not have the ability to change their futures.

GeminiContractor
Aerogant

From the beginning, far before its existence, a being's destiny is set in stone. They do not decide their fate, nor do they change it, as they are only capable of making the decisions they consider optimal. Even if they rely on other participants in their choices, such as a coin, the result will still have been set in stone. The outcome of the coin toss is decided by many conditions, but the specific conditions that were there when the coin was tossed will produce a set outcome. Their re...

There should be laws in every state defending homosexuals for being fired for their sexuality.

In 29 states in the US, it is legal to fire people for being gay. Here are some examples: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ex-cnn-employee-fired-gay-fears-work-tv-news-article-1.1803621 http://mic.com/articles/11738/5-people-who-were-fired-for-being-gay-and-the-29-states-where-that-is-still-legal If these people are not protected by laws against it, it can lead to struggling as an unemployed person, which isn't justified if they were fired for just being gay. This is awful homo...

Has skydoesminecraft's channel quality gone downhill? (pro yes con no)

maewtt
9spaceking

Both sides have BOP. Skydoesminecraft is no longer funny. He is just annoying, immature and stupid. If you look at his videos now he swears every other sentence. A majority of his fan base is 12 and under but he makes no effort to keep his content appropriate for that age group. Also he almost never does mod reviews which a lot of people thought were very funny....
