are the confederates racist
Debate Rounds (5)
I'd like to point out that Con did nothing to disprove the confederates racism. Because he has not shown any definitions, I will.
"poor treatment of or violence against people because of their race"
While enslaved, the African Americans were obviously poorly treated because of race.. 
Con's case is refuted.
Please provide one source to support your claims.
The North and South could both be racist- You haven't shown why the South was not in fact racist and instead focused on how the North is racist. I remind my opponent where the Burden Of a Proof lies.
I wait you responses.
I yet again must re-burden you to show a source. The internet is a great source of information, so all you need to do is provide a link showing where you got said information.
"That which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence as well"
Regardless of other reasoning, African Americans were beaten and killed for there race. It is the definition of racism.- Until you provide a rebuttal, my arguments still stand.
I await your responses.

Reasons for voting decision: Con has a large number of grammar violations. Con went three rounds avoiding giving a source. Pro, you should have used this time to make new arguments. Being beaten for race is indeed racism. Alternative reasons for the war, the North being racist, and Lincoln being a liar do not matter. Lee not owning slaves is one person. In the end, Con references another cite, and recommends that it be read to prove the point. Con--you can't just link to someone else's debate to prove your point. You still need to debate, and you do need to cite your sources specifically. You are using other people on the internet to do your debating. In addition, you still do not refute Pro's claims that the South owned and mistreated slaves, nor did you refute that that demonstrates racism. You only give evidence of one person who did not own slaves. That is insufficient. I do not think I'll take off a conduct point: but don't ask your opponent to look up sources for you, or use a website to make a full debate.
