Imagine a world without multiple colors. Everything just one color. Not only would this just be boring, and scary but also odd. M&ms aren't suppose to be boring or odd and they are definitely not scary. M&Ms should appeal to the consumer, and the way to do that is by being multiple colors. What better to catch your eyes than a big multi color rainbow of M&Ms?

Now, in this world there is a load of colors. But if you were born, oh, maybe 100% color blind, would you think anything about said m&ms? Color blind people also are 'fine' with their way of life is. Pro, there is other ways to "catch an eye". Besides, only the m&ms are one color, not the world.

If there is only 1 color, kids won't whine that there's too much red or what ever.

according to answers.com 2.1% of Americans are color blind. This small percent isn't enough to stop m&ms from being multi color.

You dropped 2/3 of my post!

There is lot of candy that is one color that does well. Like Chocolate. Prove that monotone candy is lesd appealing to the eater.

"There is lot of candy that is one color that does well." Do you have any proof for that? I cant prove that one company does better than another. But if you look at the candy that is one color or as you called it "monotone" I wrapped in colorful warping paper. If someone were to ask you "would you like some monotone candy?" Does that sound appealing?

What is more popular: Resees' or NoworLater? Remeber: the CANDY is one color, not the wrapping and such

Does the voters want a source to tell us that chocolate is popular? But it is only one color!

When you said " Color blind people also are fine with their way of life" do you have any proof of that. Also I doubt that a kid would wine about there being to many red or something like that. If they would they would ether have mental problems or horrible parents.

You dropped my other arguement.

Also your last arguement is a Red Herring.

Reasons for voting decision: Well...........Con loses points for wasting an entire round by agreeing to Pro's basic argument but his colorblind argument was somewhat convincing and displayed how "MMs" being multi-colored doesn't necessarily appeal to all.

Reasons for voting decision: It was hard for me at first to tell if Con was actually taking this debate seriously. I thought Pro had this one in the bag but Con continued to make arguments and Pro just couldn't handle them.

Reasons for voting decision: Answers.com is wrong on the colorblind numbers. It is about 4 to 4.5% (a little over 8% in males and something like 0.3 in females, nature is sexist, get used to it). However, Pro did not really defend his position very well. Con presented some good arguments as to why the coloring did not matter. And as con, his job was not to prove the opposite, but to negate the resolution.

Reasons for voting decision: One of the most ridiculous and messiest debates I've seen in a while...It's hard to tell who won...both had terrible conduct and the arguments were weak but one argument did stand at the end of the day that Con made so my vote goes to con
