Debate Round No. 2


Kids starting boycotts is not a reason courts should create racially balanced schools because... kids should be in school regruadless if their in boycotts
there are many different strategy could of desgregated
Race shouldnt be assiged in school it would just give areason to start conflicts


Questions for Tarronce

1 How can the desegregation plans bring more harm than good to our people when this plan was the only choice to bring our people together our plan not only was not only brilliant but it shows a good example of what the 14 amenity quoted that every organism is equal.

2 If the courts where powerless to combat my question to u is what would you do bring our community together if our plane was such a bad.

3 The court order shows that everyone can come together as a nation how can that bring negative if the court is trying to make a positive move to help the people and make Boston a better state for others.

Answers to Tarronce's questions:
1 putting kids togther would only start a conflict if u let them the hold point of this bussing law was to bring black and whites togther so the goverment would come up whit a master plan a meeting with the teacher to make sure there wont be any conflict between the kids.

2 there edvidence shows clearly mom are protesting trying not to have the blacks kids go to a white school the kids are throwing eggs rocks and es at the busses that clearly shows they dont want black and rights toghther which tells me that the white kids are quoteing there better or different due to there actions.

3 yess the court did stop the fights and the violence thats why there giveing a law to put blacks and whites togther makeing this nation a better place.

Conduct 4
Sources 3 you have some info that works better for the other side
Arguments 4 very powerful. Once you started arguing, you stuck to your side and were able to support your side of the resolution
Spelling 2 fix this and you"d be unstoppable
Analysis 4 Clearly you can see the bigger picture and how the guarantees of the Constitution need to play out in real life

Conduct 4 passionate, a little slangy, but not inappropriate
Sources 2 a lot of your info would be better for the other side
Arguments 2 missing answers to questions
Spelling 3
Analysis 3 didn"t always address the resolution

Tarronce and Jermaine, I have always enjoyed your quiet passion and your ability to express a strong and consistent world view. These are skills we wish all of our students would develop; they are immeasurable with a grade, but they are, in the long run, the most important for future success. I have a great deal of respect for both of you and the views you have brought to our classroom.
