College admissions should solely look at achievements, grades and test scores.

However if a student had a peculiar/tough life written in an essay, they should be given a little bit more of a chance. However, this isn't on a minority-only basis.

Pro

They'd be just be helpless dependent trans-female gay muslim dwarf neuroatypical black paraplegic hispinos without any agency if the white man didn't step in to help. *drops the mic*
Debate Round No. 1
Bu

Con

The fact that they're helpless should mean that they wouldn't do very good in school.

Especially in schools like Harvard, Yale, Columbia, etc.
JohannTenma

Pro

Ah, but that's where the beneficiaries of society come to the rescue. The list is exhaustive, but some of the signifiers of this benefit are whiteness, maleness and straightness.

With that in mind, the more privilege these beneficiaries have, the more they have to help minorities unconditionally. This means if someone is simply white then they'd only have to give up they're whole life's earnings to minorities. But if they're the full deck, so to speak, then they must give up their life's earnings, their parents' life's earnings, their property, and their life.

The list can always be refined, but think of it as a progressive stack for education.

Is a minority lagging behind in their course? Don't worry, just vanquish another white male!

This solution is rock solid. Obama and Al Sharpton would be proud !

Why should we reward those who have done bad in school, but just so happens to be a minority? To give preference to one race over another is straight up racism. If whites were given preference, the minority population would have started a war.

Equality.
JohannTenma

Pro

"Equality." Equality is a level playing field. This means we have to drag the beneficiaries od the system down to the same or similar level to minorities.

Realistically, this would mean bringing back communism and exterminating as many white cis male etc. until there are equal numbers of minorities as patriarchy members, rendering societal status obsolete.

Vote Pro and don't drink the Kool-Aid.

Ehhh... let's let the voters see who wins here. (I'm kinda rooting for Con) And I'm thinking that guy who voted for Pro is biased. All he said was "No sources for any of them". He claims arguments for Pro, but doesn't say why. Imhellspawn, can you elaborate on why you're on Pro's side?

It seems like you're sarcastically promoting your ideals. I don't know whether you're being honest or not.

Far from it! You proposed that their very helplessness is cause for inaction, whereas I devised an foolproof method in order to sustain them. Take it or leave it.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro concedes that the arguments are based on communism and without a good value, I reject communism arguments. Also there is no real quoting of any sources so I end up rejecting some of Pro's weird arguments. Both sides should have used sources and used more words, but I have to give it to Con.
