Embarrassed or What?
Debate Rounds (3)
My opponent has the burden of proof. He needs to show that people are ashamed to speak about their family members or friends who are in jail.

speak to people about what SPWBFF. We directly asked several groups of people
whether or not they have or had friends or family incarcerated. Most people admitted yes
and some people spoke with us in private because of the topic.
We've decided to find out more about how people feel and to
speak about the subject so there is more of an awareness that the very
words prison, jail or incarceration are okay to speak on.
Our online research has also found that parents have a hard time
talking to their children about a parent who is no longer in the home.
Sesame Street did a very good presentation on "Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration".
The in person, online and social media connections are showing that there is
an embarrassment for people who have friends or family who are incarcerated.
We are here to talk about the topic and to inform people
that it's okay to talk about it.
Ah, okay. So, my opponent attempts to appeal to authority by asking people about what they feel concerning the resolution we're arguing about. However, my opponent only show that parents have a hard time, and never suggests they are embarrased, since I suppose that is what he is trying to prove. My opponent really hasn't shown why people will be embarrased to tell that someone in their family was once in jail. After all, as far as we're concerned, we're not asking about the man in jail himself; just his family. Thus, my opponent has failed to fulfill his BoP. Vote me.
