Kohai and I are participating in my debate tournament, but are having trouble finding a topic that we both have knowledge on and that we disagree on. If people could post topics that they think would be good to debate on, it would be appreciated.

I really enjoyed my last debate on hate crime. I don't see it debated much, and I thought it brought out some interesting issues.

Just pro/con on hate crime, or like what constitutes one vs. free speech?

The legitimacy of racial profiling as a police tool is also a good one.
