Title is as accurate as presented: Eminem should be avoided as a role model, and instead other people should be considered for one's candidacy.

I accept the format given by Pro. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to debate you!!!

Just as clarification before the games begin, I assume that when Pro says "considered for one's candidacy" he means someone else should and would be a better role model than Eminem. If this is not the case, please clarify? Thanks.

Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor! :D

Well, it seems Pro has forfeited round 2 :( I hope he comes back in time to finish this debate with me.... I look forward to seeing your rebuttals at any rate :D again, thanks for this opportunity to debate a topic I love!

>Drugs, alchohol, and abuse<
It is a well known fact that Eminem, or his evil alter-ego Slim Shady, used to be a drug an user and an alcoholic. However, after treatment, he has been clean since. Although this seems like a negative point against my position, it's actually the opposite. The fact that he is no longer on drugs and has stopped over drinking sets a great example for kids. Showing that if you set out for a goal and try hard enough, you will succeed. That makes him a wonderful role model, contrary to the resolution. He is also a loving father towards his daughter, Hailie, by dedicating many songs to her, supposedly. Unlike his parents, who mistreated him according to his songs, he treats his daughter and her (?) cousin very well and did everything he could for them.

>Awards<
Eminem won 13 Grammy Awards, more than most other singers. He was also nominated twice for the Emmy Awards and both times, he won. He has also received an Academy Award. If this isn't something to look up to, I'm not sure what is. He also won the American Music Award 14 times, and the Billboard Music Awards 17 times. Even the Brit Award, he won four times, and was also given the MTV Europe Music Award 15 times. And that's not even all of the awards he's won. He literally started at the bottom of the social pyramid and worked his way up to his current position, a well known pop and rap artist.

>Sources<
I typed this up in the notes section of my phone, and somehow, my sources got deleted :( But if you wikisearch Eminem, you'll find a chart of his awards, which is where I got my list from :D

And because I'm stupid and procrastinated til the last second and then got my phone taken, that's all I'm gonna use as my points :( I know this is a lot to ask, but please pardon any mistakes, as i typed this up entirely on my phone....

Glhf to my opponent! :D"
