Con

I am clearly debating con on the topic. My opponent will debate pro on the title/resolution of the debate. I merely ask that pro start in round one, and refrain from writing more than one reasonably sized sentence in the final round. Opponent must have at-least 3 completed debates under their belt so I can avoid facing forfeiters.

Hey, I actually submitted 3 times. But it continually said I didn't. Would you be willing to rechallenge me?

I would like to debate this topic, I do not have 3 complete debates but I hope you will give me a chance anyway. You could always start the same debate again but this time with more experience, I am the president of the debate club at my magnet high school so I'm not the kind of person to stop debate because I'm losing. It's always good to finish because then you can learn how to be more successful later on.

Whether the benefits outweigh the negatives, yes. I have no moral so a moral argument would confuse me

Just to clarify, this debate isn't about whether slavery was morallly right or wrong, but rather it is whether or not it benefited America?
