YaHey

While racial profiling is a reasonable assumption solely based on the color of one's skin, it's not racist as many sensitive people claimed to be. Take for example, assuming that I'm a witness of a robbery scene, and here is what I described to the police: The criminal is a tall, skinny, and middle-aged African American male who wears a red T-shirt. If the police believes in what I said and starts to search for the potential suspects, is it "discriminatory" (as in a bad way) to look after peop...

United States-Mexico Border Fence

In this debate, I will argue that the United States-Mexico Border Fence should not exist.I will state my reasons in a few basic sentences: Nations should be allied, not at political war. We should assist illegal immigrants and grant them an opportunity for citizenship, not deport them. We do not need a border fence. We need diplomacy. A fence is irrelevant and won't positively i...

The comment section wasn't working. I wanted to continue our discussion because you brought up good points and I want to understand where your coming from. I also want to stick up for a the innocent victims of abortion. I wouldn't get pregnant at 15. I'm not a slu*. If I did get pregnant as a teen I would keep my baby. If a girl doesn't want the baby she can give it up. If a girl chooses to sleep around than she should suffer the consequences for her own actions. The baby shouldn't suffer becau...

Comrade_Silly_Otter

I would like to first state that I, in no way, dislike homosexuals. My feelings for them aren't for or against them as I truly see them as equal. I just have set beliefs about the institution of marriage and would enjoy a nice debate with another individual. I will be arguing Con for this debate. This is my first online debate, and as such I wish to defend the integrity of this debate from what I perceive to be the online equivalent of "Speed Readers" in formal debates. Therefore no less than...
