Subject : Race does not exist
Stance (To my knowledge):
Pro: Race does not exist
Con: Race does exist.
There is no limitations apart from the settings required for this debate. This is an open debate, with no requirements for sources, proof or any other expected sources for debates - barring logical sense.
This is a private debate, with pre-agreed settings, We will simply be debating with each other with nothing but out minds to sway the other.
As per a discussion with my soon to be opponent, he is tired of having to conform with the 'PC' methods of all the other debates, Which is why I am creating this first round.
After this first beginner/opening remark - All structures are forgone, the round can have whatever is wished - however a drive to continue the debate must be maintained - No major tangents or anything else that will waste a round, for no other reason than wasting the round please.
I leave the first round to my opponent, however my 'opening statement' to keep this as my first round is as follows :
Race totally exists!
Good Luck Max.Wallace, I hope we both have fun! :)
Race, to me, very much exists.
It is is the acceptance that there is a difference between people, a symbol of where we come from.
People use the negative aspects of race to put down others, but as there is always a negative to something (especially if someone clever has had time to think about it), you must acknowledge the fact that it is there - it does not mean that the good aspects it comes with does not exist.
People from Asian decent are statistically shorter, their life spans are longer and their spacial awareness is keen.
People from African nations have flatter noses to assist with heat dispersion while retaining moisture, their muscles are built in a way that provides additional fast twitch muscles, yet they retain speed when muscles develope slow twitch muscles.
People of Anglo or European decent have incredible logical and spacial awareness, and an adaptability that is astounding - Consider where they have traveled!
I believe Race exists, and it is awesome! :)
As much as you would like to claim you are no colour, sorry - but you are.
No colour, can still be a colour - No matter how much you deny it to yourself. Acknowledge it, and then never think of it again is the current strategy i am running with, with my life.
The current Land I am from is Australia, so I do have an attachment to the land (It is beautiful, when it isn't hot!) - and I appreciate it, and try to perpetuate the beauty where I can.
Religion, None - I have stayed away from joining any such, without shutting out the purposes of each religion, as I feel it is the message they intend, over the actual words and commandments they try and impose on you.
I am typically an Anglo (White) human. I have great logical and spacial awareness, and a keen empathy for others. That is the extent to which I attribute what I am good at, from my Heritage. The rest should be either addressed if it is negative to your life; Or encouraged if it is good!
What is your problem with Race (apart from the obvious issue of racism and racial profiling) - What have you got against the term "race" - apart from those that hurtful people have used to hurt others?
Zarium forfeited this round.
Thanks for your time Max.Wallace :)
I hope you have a great weekend.
