Con

should rap music be banned because it is offensive and just talks about drugs sex murder and the use of women as toys

I thank opponent for the debate.

Rap music should not be banned for following reasons:

My Advantages

1) freedom of speech
2) way for poor children to move up social strata
3) ingrained part of culture
4) coolness/role models

Disadvantages
1) Torture
2) Perpetual poverty cycle
3) Banning of rap music will not destroy the culture.
4) children loses dreams and motivations

I would that the opponent carry out her burden of proof by defining what rap musics are and how they will be banned.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

First of all, rap music is not even real music. It is very possible to record an entire rap song without even knowing how to play a musical
instrument, and without even knowing how to sing. Rap is simply a conglomerate of words, usually offensive words, spoken very fast
Rap is incredibly offensive. There are very few rap songs that do not, in some form or another, mention sex, doing drugs, or even murder. The language is incredibly horrible, as a rap song (if censored) is nothing more than a long beep. Women are mentioned in a very derogatory fashion. Examples include calling them hoes and other terms that cannot be used in this paper. These writers make them out to be nothing more than objects of pleasure. This is a horrible thing and should not be allowed to continue.

It is only telling children or other teens it's ok to do bad thingst here is no point in keeping it it's trash and i understand some people like it but they ether need to change there songs completely like i mean maybe christian or just ban it ..
