Racial diversity is not a strength.

Scruggs
devcoch

This debate concerns whether or not racial diversity is a strength in the United States. This debate specifically focuses in on the United States, but feel free to pull examples from other places if you find it useful. I will be arguing that racial diversity in the United States is not a strength and, by accepting this debate, you will be arguing that racial diversity is a strength in the United States.

Hayd

IntroHayd asked for people who were willing to debate old LD topics with him, and I was happy to volunteer myself. I don't believe Hayd and I have debated yet, so this should be a wonderful opportunity to do so--he is an excellent debater, and I look forward to our upcoming exchange.As this topic involves a controversial subject on which people may or may not have strong opinions, I have opted to nominate a judging panel of people I know to be qualif...

Should we legalize abortion

TheDebater14
TheMonsterKing456

I think they should,because abortion can cause mental disruption. Abortion is also killing innocent lives. Based on the word "fetus","embryo" and "zygote" are living organisms. Thus abortion is harming a living thing. Furthermore, abortion is a choice made by the mother. If you force the mother to abort the birth, it is against the law. But the mother should just deliver the baby and raise him/her just like any normal human being....

I do not believe that people should be able to rally for their beliefs. Rallies are only destructive and do not actually do anything productive for the issue. That being said rallies should be illegal and participants should be arrested....

Should there be more injecting centres around the world for the use of illicit drugs?

SimDim888
Mharman

I would love this debate with someone. On my trip to King's Cross on the weekend I learnt a lot about an injecting centre where people are able to safely take drugs with clean equipment and nurses so that there is no chance of overdose. There have been 1 million injections taken place there, 5,000 of those people have overdosed but none of them have died. These statistics are incredible and very promising but still it is the only injecting centre in the entire south hemisphere. If this place...
