I'd like to start off by thanking my opponent for accepting this debate and let them know that I look forward to reading his arguments.

Section 1:
First off, let's discuss the definition of race and racism.

*Race-Each of the Major Divisions of human kind, having distinct physical characteristics.

* Racism- Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.

As everyone knows, race is more commonly known as the color of our skin and racism has been around for centuries in 4 different forms. The 4 forms of racism are reverse racism, subtle racism, internalized racism and colorism. Now let's define these different forms.

* Reverse Racism- a term used to describe acts of discrimination and prejudice perpetrated by racial minorities or historically oppressed ethnical groups against individuals belonging to the racial majority or historically dominant historical group.

* Subtle Racism- an ambiguous form of racism
^Ambiguous- open to more than one interpretation, having a double meaning

* Internalized Racism- the internalization by people of racist attitudes towards members of their own ethnic group, including themselves.

* Colorism- prejudice or discrimination against individuals of with a dark skin tone, typically among people of the same ethnic or racial group.

Knowing this, it's perfectly possible that President Trump is racist in one way or the other, but this isn't how the Left wing is portraying his racism.

Section 2:
In this section, I will be listing the different races and discussing why the Liberals are accusing Trump of being racist and explaining how that's wrong. Let's start off with the list. The races are most commonly Caucasian (or White), Black, Hispanic/Latino (commonly found in Mexico and down), American Indian, Oriental (commonly found in the Asian territories) and for the Middle Easterners, let's call their race just that, Middle Eastern.

First off, Liberals starting accusing Donald Trump of being racist at the beginning of the 2016 election when he said that he planned on deporting all the illegal immigrants, which Mexicans take up 54%. Well, as anyone should know, an illegal immigrant is someone who sneaks into a country, or enters the country without going through the required process of documentation. Everyone who enters a country must be documented, so if they plan on staying we can have them pay their share of taxes. But they're not a race. Entering a country illegally, is a crime, so if anything, they're criminals. So deporting them would be an act of racism, it would be an act of justice.

Lately, Liberals have been accusing Trump of being racist because he wants to "ban" Muslims. Well, first off, he doesn't want to ban Muslims, he wants to ban immigration for a few years. In all actuality though, it's not even a ban. The point of the Executive Order he's placed on immigration is having a back ground check performed on everyone entering the country from any where ISIS is known to be located, a list of which was created by the Obama administration. I find it hilarious how Liberal's believe this to be unconstitutional when Bill and Obama have done the same thing. Anyway, back to the main race point. Muslim isn't a race, it's a religion. If he really wanted to ban Muslims, don't you think he would deport the 3.3+ million Muslims already here?

Section 3:
For this, I will simply put 3 links to videos that prove that Trump isn't actually a racist, not because I'm too lazy to do so myself, but because I think they will do a better job than me.
