This debate will center around two controversial figures, MLK and Malcolm X.

I will try to advance a black separatist violent revolution (Malcolm X)

Con will try to advance a peaceful nonviolent revolution (MLK JR)

This debate occurs during the racial tensions in the 60s. Most of the citing should be their written speeches, but scientific studies and historical analysis of the worthiness of their beliefs can also be used (past or present).

I don't believe there is an age limit, but I did intentionally put in a debate limit

He's asking you to change the age limit, not the debate limit...

Let me just clarify "violent" with a quote from MX
"It doesn't mean that I advocate violence, but at the same time, I am not against using violence in self-defense. I don't call it violence when it's self-defense, I call it intelligence."
