You cant be Racist Towards White People

Masterire
Rhenium

I've heard alot of nonsense online about how White people can't be racist on the assertion of racism is "Power+Privillage." Im arguing against this notion. What of a rich black kenyan politician? He has power and Privillage in his society, see? It becomes ine big clusterf*** even if we ignore the dictionary definition which nowhewre mentions power+privillage....

Almost half of all rape accusations are false.

Round 1. Acceptance Round 2-4. Presenting arguments and rebuttals. Round 5. Closing argument with no rebuttals. I believe that there is now mounting evidence which suggest that rape is not only lied about but lied about for the most trivial of reasons. In-depth studies by independent judges and prosecutors conclusively show that reported rapes to the police are fraught with false claims, very much more so than reports of other crimes, and we have cases over and again of women lying about ra...

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction.

It can really cause a person to not feel good about themselves, to have love self esteem. Any person in a relationship where there is domestic violence should seek help for the sake of the relationship , or just get out of the relationship altogether. If there are children, in the family, where there is domestic...

Should smartphones be banned in schools?

My school has a no smartphone policy, and I am strongly against it. I am a 6th grade (or Year 7) living in London and think the case is totally unnecessary. The only mobile phones we can bring to school are Nokia bricks, which cannot have a camera or access to the internet. I think this is plain stupid. My school is a local school, (not in the middle of the city) and we surely do not have that many thieves. So why? They do not distract your learning, my school is strict enough. Phone (Nokia bri...
