Alright, you have the burden of proof. Convince people that persons with African heritage can not help themselves.

Your reasoning is absurd. Almost every country calls in foreign aid in times of conflict. It was a strategic and good move, that in no way proves your points. Africans not only help themselves, but other races. During the spanish-american war, the 10th and 24th regiments charged san juan hill. The black infantry is a reason for our success in the war. Ethiopia, an african nation, also could help themselves and others. During the Scramble for Africa, Menelik united the ethiopian tribes against an overwhlemingly stronger european force. An example of Africans helping Africans.

In short, africans can help themselves as much as any other race. They already do. They band together to form armies, governments, and aid programs. Africa is not an ideal place to live, and if caucasions were living there, the same problems would exist.

What can you say about xenophobia in africa
Jifpop09

Con

I say it does not exist. Africa has been globalized through efforts from China, Britain, and France. They are now a part of the free market, and are providing the world with valuable goods. They are not xenobobic, because many african countries have accepted modernization and foreign ideas.

South africa is full of xenophobia. What can you say dear.

Con

If you refuse to stop repeating yourself, and to make a new argument, then you are not taking this debate seriously.

Pro

Africans cannot help securing their land.eg the eastagate bombings in kenya,
Jifpop09

Con

My opponent has not sisplayed sufficient evidence that Africans are incapable of helping themselves. He choose rather to give one sentence responces. Please vote con if you feel the same way.

Reasons for voting decision: Clearly Con had the best arguments, conduct, and evidence. Pro either did not take his own debate seriously or is suffering from some sort of racist delusions.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro had poor spelling. Terrible even. Even misspelling Wikipedia. He offered no sources to back up a poor argument. Xenophobia? What kind of an argument was that? It literally had NOTHING to do with the Resolution. Con refuted it, and Pro simply repeated it with no additional support. He dropped over case, and his conduct was poor.
