The considering factor that once so long ago, people of the African decent were slaves. They were mistreated and subjected to work rigorously for over a century.

Abortion

SchinkBR

I will be doing several debates on the current Big Issues. This is the first. The topic is abortion. If you accept, you are saying that abortion is bad. The first round will be for acceptance and for explaining the rules, the second round will be for placing down arguments, and the third will be for placing rebuttals and no new arguments. Should any of these rules be broken, voters should be aware that that person should be penalized by being voted against....

Black Lives Matter!!! Really? That's your movement's name? I would rename your slogan to Black Lives ALSO Matter. Did you see that word, ALSO? Yes, I know, you might laugh at my argument that ALL LIVES MATTER . Don't get me wrong, you're movement as a whole is perfectly fine and respectable, but the people who protest it are a WHOLE OTHER STORY. Yes, of course, racism totally exists, but it doesn't only effect the lives of black people, it effect's ALL of us. One of you're biggest argument's is...

U.S. Free Speech vs. EU Free Speech

PrefaceI believe this debate arose from a hangout discussion in which I defended a pro-Europe position and in which Max noted his willingness to debate me on topic. I am, to be honest, quite excited and nervous about debating Max on this topic, and I am looking forward to a high quality back-and-forth. For however cute they are, Axolotls are pretty intimidating debaters.I would ask Max not to accept until the afternoon of Feb 28th. Because this is a...

I look fo...
