I have proof that the user DontBeRacist is, infact, racist.

DontBeRacist: http://www.debate.org...

racist: Discrimination or prejudice based on race; racially prejudiced

prejudice: A preconceived preference or idea.

Thank you for the challenge wolfgang. The resolution is that I am in fact a racist. I will be arguing 1. I never said that I wasn't. And 2. There is a difference between racism and profiling.

I'd first like to thank DontBeRacist for accepting my challenge.

--------------
Rebuttals
--------------

1) That is inconsequential to this debate. I stated in the topic "The user DontBeRacist is racist" not "The user DontBeRacist is a liar and secret racist"; so as you can see, the question of whether you admitted you were racist or not is of no relevance.

2) Do you mean profiling as in "police profiling"? If not please provide a definition.

-------------
Argument
-------------

Since CON has accepted this debate and has not raised any issues with my definitions in the first round (which he had ample opportunity to do since the word limit is 8000 and I doubt he went over 150) I shall assume that he finds them both acceptable and accurate.

According to previous definitions, if CON has a "prejudice based on race" then he is undoubtedly racist. And to prove that CON is "prejudice[d] based on race" all I have to do is provide evidence that he has a "preconceived preference or idea" about different races.

This is clearly demonstrated by the comment he left on the user jingzhezhang's profile: "You're asian. Why are you spamming me with kfc?" CON could have simply asked: "Why are you spamming me with kfc?" in which case it would not have been classified as a prejudiced comment but the fact that he included the sentence "You're asian." turns it into a prejudiced question based on race. CON's preconceived idea was that asians do not spam kfc when, in actual fact, some asians indulge in a little kfc/chicken related spamming from time to time. http://www.debate.org...

Unfortunately I forgot to provide the sources for my definitions in the first round; I apologise for this but here they are:
