Depends on what you mean by people.

I would imagine there isn't a single topic you can get people to agree on, if you extend the range of people to the maximum.

The reality of every conversation I've seen on these subjects is that very highly ideologically and emotionally charged people just insult anyone who disagrees with them.

Good, I like those kind of debates. You should see my Americans don't know anything about Canada forum. Unless you're American. Then don't go see it.

I agree. It's impossible to say most Muslims are good people, blacks are not sub-human, or anything along those lines, especially on this site. I've never seen anything more hostile to minorities under the guise of "facts lol." The moment someone tries to say "but blacks are humans too," everyone laughs and calls them an idiot and an SJW and mocks them relentlessly. The SJWs are nothing compared to you.

YYW wasn't talking about debating he was talking about having meaningful dialog, as in an exchange of ideas. I tried to have that exchange with you several times because I thought we could learn something from one another, but it seems you only wanna "debate" members who will completely disagree with you and have no direct experience of the subject matter to which they claim to have knowledge of. Try me.

No, forums are a place to have dialog before debating. If I am having dialog with someone that isn't responding to my points, and instead responds with insults, a debate would be a more likely way for each side to express themselves.

The reality of every conversation I've seen on these subjects is that very highly ideologically and emotionally charged people just insult anyone who disagrees with them.

From what I've seen, Religion is unequivocally the topic that few can discuss without resorting to insults or violence. Gender and race come close, but the vast majority of immoral groups are centered around religion. While race and gender groups do exist, they seldom enforce much harm, while religious groups (ISIS, Al Qaeda, etc.) enforce the most harm and are unprecedented in terms of pure hatred over one disagreeing with them on a subject.
