Con

Racism today isn't a real problem, sure every now and then an african american gets shot by a white cop andthere are riots in the streets. But now minorities have the same abilities as whites. In fact many colleges accept more minorities then whites. Now today people dont care about diviserty. The only reason there are "hate crimes" is due to illicit behavior. How many times do you hear about minorities killing someone or doing drugs and getting caught. The thing is its not only one race anymore, anyone be involved in crimes

Racism is still a relevant problem. Nationwide surveys find that the majority declares itself non-racist, but racism still exists in policy. Blatant Jim Crow racism no longer exists, but that doesn't mean racism hasn't taken a new form. Contemporary racism focuses on culture. Statistically, the economic disparity and opportunities between whites and a large portion of the nonwhite community (namely Hispanic and African American) favors the white community by a large margin. The black/Hispanic community is generalized as lazy in culture. The Middle Eastern community are assaulted by political policies under 'terrorism' and the Hispanic community under 'illegal aliens' and 'war on drugs'. Generalizations about a group is by definition racist.

"Racism today isn't a real problem" Well, a lot of people say it is for some reason.

"sure every now and then an african american gets shot by a white cop andthere are riots in the streets. "
Okay

But now minorities have the same abilities as whites.
Right, technically we all have the same abilities.

In fact many colleges accept more minorities then whites.
Also in fact many colleges accept more whites than minorities

"Now today people dont care about diviserty. "
Translate: you don't care about diversity

The only reason there are "hate crimes" is due to illicit behavior.
Surely not the only reason

How many times do you hear about minorities killing someone or doing drugs and getting caught.
Agree, more often in the media

The thing is its not only one race anymore, anyone be involved in crimes
True, but the prison population is vastly African Americans.

Reasons for voting decision: I'm not even black, I'm white, and it's clear to see that racism is still an issue. However, I'm not here to debate this, I'm here to judge. Pro seemed to have a better understanding of the concept as a whole. his arguments showed us that racism still exists. Con tried to give examples, but they sort of fell through. I would give pro conduct points, but he did forfeit.

Reasons for voting decision: I am black I know. Racism is a problem idk why you would even try to go con on this such a bad move. The extent and impact of racism isn't as big as a problem as it used to be but it still is a problem. Honestly con if you wanted to have a chance you should have put is racism a big problem. IT's not a huge problem like it was back in early 1900s but it still is a problem. Stereotypes are still out their and the KKK is still real its just up north I believe in North Dakota where not many African americans. But anyway yeah I also voted pro because better sources/argument.
