distraff

Firstly, I'd like for this debate to be mature. I'd prefer to have just an exchange in views, nothing hateful; nothing racist. Secondly, the debate should be in some sense academic; that is, have at least some understanding of race, racism, it's history and how it functions in society as well as an understanding of people from a variety of backgrounds. Format of the debate: Round 1: Acceptance and any other pleasant exchange. Round 2: Presentation of Arguments. Round 3: Rebuttals Roun...

I find that the abuse of power by popular youtubers is wrong the fact that they can easily destroy new youtubers by overexposure. I have seen plenty of new up and coming youtubers getting ,,recommended,, by popular youtubers then in a matter of days their subscription goes from 20k to over a few hundred thousand causing sudden camera shyness a decrease of video quality and frequency and in less then a month the youtuber looses their original sub base and all their new ones essentially killing...

The minimum wage should not be raised to $15/hr for fast food workers

RoyLatham
TheHitchslap

Unions recently staged protests demanding that McDonald's in the U.S. should be required to pay workers a minimum of $15 per hour. An ABC News report provides some background on the issue [1. http://abcnews.go.com/ABC_Univision/News/fast-food-workers-demand-pay/story?id=20235304].

Temptation, Anger: due to lack of resistance against anger and temptation in most children, children may shoot at a fellow innocent classmate when the child gets angry and tempted. This could lead to a firefight between...
