Nowadays, an Islamic African-American woman has more "rights" than a Christian White man in America.

By "rights", I mean more ability to do things that they want and succeed.

Yes, America was so eager to avoid a world run only by white Christian males that we're now going in the opposite direction.

Here is my reasoning:

1. Religion
From "America Alone: The End of the World as we Know It", page 66:
"He's also the fellow who helped devise the three-week Islamic awareness course in California public schools, in the course of which students adopt Muslim names, wear Islamic garb, give up candy and TV for Ramadan, memorize suras from the Koran, learn that 'jihad' means 'internal personal struggle,' profess the Muslim faith, and recite prayers that begin 'In the name of Allah,' etc. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals-the same court that ruled the Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional because of the words 'under God'-decided in this case that making seventh graders play Muslim for two weeks was perfectly fine, just an interesting exposure to a fascinating 'culture' from which every pupil can benefit. Separation of church and state? That maybe, but nobody said nuthin' about separation of mosque and state."
Yes, we feel as if we should not impose our religion to others, but we also feel that we must not stop other religions from imposing themselves upon us. Also, calling the Middle East "the Muslim world" is perfectly acceptable, but calling the West "the Christian world" is against the Constitution.

2. Race
Supporters of affirmative action firmly believe that whites have some unwritten advantage when it comes to college and job applications. Their solution is to give other races a written advantage that forces colleges and businesses to accept other races at a ratio that does not properly reflect the ratio of applicants, and results in less whites getting in to colleges and jobs than if race was completely ignored. Furthermore, Barack Obama got a large number of votes from African Americans just because he was black. http://thesop.org... Apparently, it is good to vote FOR someone because he is another race, but bad to vote AGAINST him for it. Also, some people think that "black" is a racist term, even though "white" is a perfectly acceptable term, and "black" should thus be a perfectly acceptable comparison.

3. Gender
Currently, women are not part of the draft in American government.

Additionally, at the Houston Regional Science Fair, there was award from some Women's Rights advocate group that gave a Special Award to some random girls with good projects. If a group came out that only gave awards to guys, they would get yelled at for being sexist, but the other way around is perfectly okay.

This is how racism (http://en.wikipedia.org...), religious segregation (http://en.wikipedia.org...), and sexism (http://en.wikipedia.org...) are going from against the oppressed to against a new oppressed.

Thank you to whoever accepts my challenge.

This is a shame.

All arguments extended, although my opponent technically can't post any arguments anymore, as it is poor conduct to do so on the last round.
