Racism has always been an issue in society , but what the problems seem to be is no one is bothering to forgive each other. Instead we have both sides climbing on the bandwagon of "Minority oppression" and "you are to blame"....etc. This is strongly a topic that many minorities today (Black, Spanish, etc) stay on, as it is an issue that most strongly correlates to their own history, this eventually becomes something that younger generations cling on to and try to use to justify an action such as reprisal for past history. What the essence of what the very argument i am trying to pose is that, it is wrong to use the past as a shield to retribute future changes in a minorities status egs:
Giving land that is has being owned by farmers or landowners for three of more generations to aboriginals etc. On the basis of the land being "supposedly a ritual, or native area for six hundred years prior to colonization etc."
Summary: It is wrong to allow minorities to slur or use past to justify a modern agenda and try to oppress other races.

Based on the name of the debate, i'm going to assume that the debate is about whether there is racism on both sides? in your opening argument you didnt really pose a question or give an opening statement. so i will debate you on this if the previous information is correct.

I will make it more straight forward:
Minorities are trying to be the majority, and they are trying to do this by using the past to justify certain rights.

The problem is, everyone has the same rights? The Civil Rights Act of 1964 explains that everyone is equal. therefore no one has any rights that the other race does not

I'm not sure whether my opponent is forfeiting or is currently being affected by Hurricane Sandy but I conclude that the idea of racism being the reason for people having certain rights to be absurd.
