Religious symbols, meetings, buildings, demonstrations, and speeches should be banned from the public. Religion should be a personal matter with no outside influences.

Students should be able to use book work, because it's a better use for the mind. Technology is good, but kids can get so into it , that they forget about book work. Technology is taking over now, and one day they will turn on us. So I think, book work is a better way to get your education....

Dilara
DaveRamseyRKO

Police brutality is a problem for African Americans. However it is not the number one problem for them. Out of the 7000 murderers of black people each year 93% of them are by other black people. Most of this is gang violence related. These stats are from the fbi and national crime victimization survey. What black people should be worried about is the high levels of poverty they're communities are plagued with and the unemployment rate. 1 in 2 black men does not have a job. Black people should fo...

There is one definition we need before starting this debate to remove any ambiguity.
