Evidence shows that racial inequality still exists in our society today. Racial inequality denies people equal rights.
VulcanZero

Con

I'm guessing that by "our society today" we are speaking of occidental culture (probably strictly US-based). If that's the case, it will take some substantial effort to show that this is still the case without devolving to fallacious paralleling of 'equality of opportunity' with 'equality of outcome' or treating pockets of social bigotry as supposed evidence of anything genuinely 'systemic'.

Looking forward to your response.

Con

Hold on...you are the initiator. I appreciate your deference, but the entire point of debates is to begin with at least some thorough construct of your premise. I realize you may consider the topic to be a non-issue (which would be perplexing as to why you felt compelled to initiate it as a debate topic), but the point here is to offer point and counterpoint.

Presumably you have something to offer as an initial argument for why racial equality (defined specifically by you as "[denying] people equal rights") exists apart from "Well, duh!".

In order for me to respond, I'd hope there would be something of substance to respond TO.

"Did you really just say that? You know, in public? With people reading?"

You better believe I did.

Anyone who cries about inequality should familiarize itself with the education system in the US in its problems.

Long story short, it worked so hard to be make all races 'equal in grades' that it ended up just wrecking the whole public education system in the process. Now education sucks for everyone. And still, you can get into schools with 3.2 as black what others need a 3.8 for and impressive extra curricular compliment.

And education is extremely important in socio-economic equality, so it is really possibly screw a lot of other races who should have gotten in if not for affirmative action.

And you are still complaining its not equal. People get sick of this BS eventually you know.

Oh god LaughingRiddle: "To comeback and complain you still aren't equal enough is pathetic. Why don't you go do some soul searching?" Did you really just say that? You know, in public? With people reading?

We live in a meritocracy, not a communist state.

The poster of this debate seems oblivious to the fact.

Equality?

Let's put it this way, affirmitive action is biased towards other races. Rather than being equal, other races get preferential treatment in the states.

To comeback and complain you still aren't equal enough is pathetic. Why don't you go do some soul searching? Stop demanding something be given to you when other people worked harder and deserve it more based on their merits.

"Suicide" if people care more about appeals to emotion than logic and reason. I suppose we'll see what the debate.org populace is more made of.

Actually, many people think that since we have a black president, racism no longer exists.

Of course it does... I don't think that this is debatable. Whoever accepts this is facing suicide.
