Affirmative action is wrong and should be ban in the U.S. All it does is create Reverse desrimination against whites and defeats the whole perpose of the Civil Rights Act.

I would do a full on debate using sources and detailed arguments, but as my opponent has not used these I will create a level playing field and not do these things in this argument. However, I will do this in my next argument.

Affirmative action allows those who would not have the opportunity before to do things that they couldn't do. Also, I ask my opponent to not specify "whites", for there are others who are at times hurt by affirmative action. The whole purpose of the Civil Rights Act was to create an equal playing field for all, and affirmative action allows for this to take place.

Affirmative action helps those who need help without hurting those who are put back that much. If my opponent would like for me to specify any points, please ask and I will do so. I ask that voters see my views to be detailed in my next speech, and vote Pro!

I profusely apologize for the missed arguments. I was unable to post m arguments due to a lack of internet. In the future RepulicanMike, I would suggest a longer time period to post arguments, perhaps 3 days.
