I think blacks should stop calling each other black because it means bad things and African American because we're not treated like Americans not do we know anything about Africa, shouldn't we have another name
Zarroette

Con

Thank you, BiancaMarie, for instigating this debate.

Since Pro has the BoP, we await Pro's arguments which affirm the resolution.

BiancaMarie forfeited this round.
Zarroette

Con

Since Pro failed to produce any argument of substance, I will demonstrate how what has been provided by my opponent fails to affirm the resolution.


"I think blacks should stop calling each other black because it means bad things and African American because we're not treated like Americans not do we know anything about Africa, shouldn't we have another name"

Due to a lack of evidence provided to support this claim, my opponent has committed a logical fallacy called a bare assertion, meaning that my opponent's argument fails to be logical, hence cannot be agreed with [1]. Due to my opponent offering nothing but illogical assertions, the resolution remains unaffirmed.

This debate looks like one of the three for BiancaMarie to be able to vote, so I won't be overly harsh. Going by this logic, calling white people white is racist too! Which is very strange because that's what you call white people. white. no racism whatever. So calling a black person black is the same exact thing. calling a black person black is not racist whatever. Calling someone by their color is simply a way of identifying them.
