U_NC_20
ViceRegent

Minimum wage should be increased because it would reduce poverty and would reduce government spending. Increasing the minimum wage might result in businesses to lay-off employees resulting in a higher unemployment rate. Should the minimum wage be increased?...

I would like to thank my opponent for agreeing to debate this with me. Dog fighting is a type of blood sport generally defined as opposing two game dogs against one another in a ring or a pit, for the entertainment of the spectators or the gratification of the dogfighters.Please note that just because I think dog fighting should be legal, doesn't mean I think it is good.The first round will be for my contender's acceptance. I look fo...

The Vast Majority of Sociology is Useless.

Nivek
Ragnar

After reading a few books on sociology, notably a few religious case studies and a few "New Dads" studies by various graduates, I have come to the conclusion that sociology is a useless field. While this may be premature, I'd still like to test whether this is true or whether I'm just not competent enough to see the value that it provides.

Is Black Lives Matter right about systemic racism in our police force?

trippycornflakes
blamonkey

There's absolutely no evidence that the US police force is out to get blacks. However, there is evidence that over 90% of black murders are in the hands of other blacks and white on black murders are only a small percentage. Most of the time, police brutality is caused by an instigation, such as a police officer asking someone to do something, but they instead fight the police officer, resulting in a justified use of force. Our police officers protect our nation and YOU. You'd probably be dead w...

A 12 year old girl has been found guilty of aggravated sexual abuse of a 4 month old girl. The judge has sentenced her to die in the gas chamber. Most people believe that is an excessive, unreasonable, and unnecessary punishment.

Pro will choose whether to sent the child to prison or to a treatment facility Con (me) will oppose whatev...

He feels bad about what he said and he regrets it, but Faith and her mother keep pushing the case on. The school had to change Casey's schedule in the middle of the semeste...
