Racists have no argument, for example they say things like "this black lad hit me and stole my money" and then say "I hate all blacks". This makes no sense this is presuming that the black person represents all blacks. Its common sense to realise this is stupid. Also we are all the same just because we are a different colour does not make us any different. I don't consider myself white I consider myself human and that is all, everyone is the same we are only different in our minds and hearts.

I thank my opponent for starting this debate.

Ignorant: lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned
Pure:being that and nothing else
Stupid: lacking ordinary quickness and keenness of mind; dull.

There are many people who were racists and very smart. Abraham Lincoln for instance, many people think him not a racists, yet he was. He was yet a very smart man.

You are right about most of their arguments not making since, but they still have an argument.
I am currently in a debate where my opponent is...shall we say, no we shouldn't say anything. But the point is that his argument's are crazy. Though this man's arguments are crazy, he seems like a ery logical man.

I look forward to my opponents response.

He may be very intelligent however he obviously didn't have any common sense due to the fact he did not realise that every one is the same. For example I know this sounds stupid however it makes sense, a phone comes in many different colours however at the end of the day they are all phones and all basically the same, just because one is black and another is white it does not make the phone work any better. Ignorance does not mean you are stupid it means you do not think about what you are thinking with any actual common sense.
You could be the most intelligent person on the planet however if you are racist, then you are not thinking with your head you are thinking with your heart, it is what that person believes however they are not using their intelligence.

"He may be very intelligent however he obviously didn't have any common sense due to the fact he did not realise that every one is the same."

You just proved my point. One can not be very intelligent and purely stupid.

Yes, I do agree that racist's arguments are quite dumb, but some people just can not get it. We should not hate them back, then what's the point. But instead pity them. Also, it depends on your definition. They were told all their lives by their mothers and fathers that the other race is dumb. It does not leave them when they hit eighteen, but instead stays in their minds. What if you were told that roaches were gross, then later everyone said they were okay and did not have any diseases. Would you let the roaches climb over your food? No.

I look forward to your response.
