Is the Ferguson uproar really about Michael Brown?

Resolved: the riots in Ferguson are not necessarily about the killing of Michael Brown, but is the result of long-standing racial tensions in St. Louis. Debate layout: Round 1 is for acceptance. Round 2 is for arguments. Round 3 is for closing statements. I thank Pro in advance for accepting and for a good debate! Good luck!...

The boy scouts made a big mistake when they maintained their position on not allowing any gay leaders [1]. This is because little boys need a diversity in activities, life isn't just putting up tents and tieing knots.What the boy scouts are missing out on are the cool, hip and fun activities that gay leaders would introduce, such as Extreme Sewing Adventures and Radical Rainbow-drawing, with merit badges complete with pink glitter on them.

It is just dumb to fill up the debates with super hero's and Pokemon stuff. There are actually people doing assignments trying to find debates to go to the next grade to graduate. Really grow up ... For all I care go on to wiki answers , yahoo answers. But this is a professional site that is supposed to be used for important debates. Thank you!...

We"d like to start of with definitions The Rise of China is the process of China, changing from a developing country with industrial economies to a developed one with service oriented economies, especially in the last ten years.

9/11: All conspiracy theories about 9/11 are painfully false.

Zdawg
Ozzyhead

If anyone out there believes an alternate reality of the events of 9/11 and thinks they can prove it, I challenge you. If you believe the US government was behind it, it was a controlled demolition, there were no planes, it was a space beam, Larry Silverstein did it, or it was done so we could go to war in the middle east, or any other crazy theory, please prove it....
