Racist jokes are kind of funny. Most people grow up with these jokes so they don't know they are wrong. I know some people that tell racist jokes about there own race. People are learning to just live with the racist comments and jokes because there are ones about every race. You can find ones about Americans, Africans, Mexicans, you name it. Only a few hundred people out of millions think that racist jokes are inhuman.

Ok...I think you're arguing that racist jokes are funny and that just because you find them funny, does not make you racist.

Which is the con, the side i'm arguing for.

But here's the flip side for the sake of this argument.

Ever hear the phase "Behind every joke, there is kernel of truth?"

Sorry I'm new at this and I'm not good at debating.
So I'm supposed to do why racist jokes make you racist fine.
Racist jokes are crap who ever made them is an idiot. You tell racist jokes no girl or guy is going to like you because you're a jerk.
Happy.

Reasons for voting decision: Technically, if the opponent forfeits, you will end up getting points for conduct, leading to a win. However since you displayed terrible conduct as well by arguing for the wrong side and swearing/cursing, you did not earn those points. Whomp had a better argument that didn't involve swearing.
