This debate will discuss whether race is necessary in society or not. race- each of the major divisions of humankind, having distinct physical characteristics. Please note that race is different from culture, as culture is a social group, and race is purely a physical classification. The main question here is, "Is race necessary for our society to function? Why or why not?" ROUND 1- Present...

Hitler attempted to refine the population in his opinion and was humane according to the dictionary.


Adolf Hitler was an Austrian-born German politician and the leader of the Nazi Party. He was chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and dictator of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. NO opinions. My opinion on Hitler is that he was a horrible person that committed In-describable crimes. I am stating that Hitler was humane according to the dictionary and in his own opinion was attempting to refine the world....

Adults, without violence related felonies, should have the right to carry a concealed firearm.


To start out carrying a concealed handgun in public is permitted in all 50 states as of 2013, when Illinois became the last state to enact concealed carry legislation. Some states require gun owners to obtain permits while others have "unrestricted carry" and do not require permits. Proponents of concealed carry say that criminals are less likely to attack someone they believe to be armed. They cite the 2nd Amendment's "right of the people to keep and bear arms," and argue that most adults w...

What defines what is and "ok" age difference in a relationship and what is not?


What age makes large age gap relationships ok? Can a 15 year old date a 21 year old with parental consent and is it "ok" ? Does it really matter at all in the long run? If love is real it can wait, but still be in a relationship. It seems the world is run on labels and it is not good for anyone. 6 years is not a long time. Waiting 2 years to be of age is not a big deal. But why is it so looked down upon in this society? It comes down to the opinion of the individual. I find nothing wrong with ag...
