Should Black Lives Matter Apply to Black On Black Crime?

Soragirl7
Emmarie

I think Black Lives Matter should cover all things involving "black lives", that includes the black on black crime rate. Police brutality is one thing, but we are killing each other at a faster rate than other races are killing each other. And usually its over senselessness. I don't understand why we are more focused on forcing other people to care about black lives when we don't care about our own lives. Last time I checked rich black people never stay in all black neighborhoods. Why? Because t...

Religious 'God Talk' is fooling no-one.

I do not believe in the Jewish God, the Christian God, or the Islamic God. Jews do not believe in the Christian God. Who is this 'Allah' fella? Islamic fanatics despise the Christian version of Divinity. Let us all display honesty on this matter. When a person states that God has 'spoken to them' they are regarded with suspicion and rightly so. T.V. companies, business and Global trade markets make no provision for this thing. Political conflicts and wars carry on regardless. Th...

Gay Marraige Should Be Allowed.

Gays should be allowed to marry partners of their choice just as heterosexual couples do. It is ignorant in today's world to deny such a basic right to an individual because of something that is innate. Yes, sexuality is not a choice, it is innate. For my first point, let me state that a civil union is not a reasonable compromise for a legal marriage. Most civil unions don't have the same rights as a legal marriage has. Even if we made all civil unions exactly equal to legal marriage but cal...

Most don't know what science is or how science operates.

Joshuaite
ContraDictator

Science is dead. Kids aren't being taught what science is or how it operates because the teachers and professors and scientists themselves no longer know what science is or how it operates. We are now living in the new dark ages. Because the vast majority no longer understand how science operates, most are now gullible to believing whatever they are told to believe is true 'by science'. Very few know how to think for themselves - to reason - to use logic anymore so they have no choice but to...

Should Efforts Be Made Or Increased To Reduce Air Pollution?

Joey888
Firplius

We all need oxygen. Every living thing needs oxygen, except plants, because they need carbon dioxide and release oxygen as a waste product. For people, breathing dirty air will have negative side effects. The question is, what are we doing to make the air cleaner? According to EPA.gov, the Clean Air Act, which was passed in 1970, has "lowered levels of six common pollutants -- particles, ozone, lead, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide -- as well as numerous toxic pollutants." P...

Should People Spend Less Time On Computers And Other Electronic Devices?

Joey888
SJM

Before I start off, I have to admit that this debate is a little ironic. My topic is about using the computer less often, and yet I am using a computer to type this argument. Computers are very useful. They have modernized our world. However, people have been spending too long in front of the computer, and in front of other electronics in fact! According to bgr.com, people spend about 7.4 hours in front of electronics, With...
