CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy.
If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
Arguments with the highest score are displayed first.
Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument.
To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
To vote for an argument, use these icons:
You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument.
Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change.
Yes, you can change your vote.
Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account.
All scores are updated in real-time.
To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument.
If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
Starting since Christopher Columbus arrived and put people into slavery from the Caribbean after finding gold in Puerto Rico (1493), all the way up to "March 22, 1873, the Spanish National Assembly finally abolished slavery in Puerto Rico." We forget that the people were ignored, treated harshly, and so on. Our blood and culture was mixed with africans who were brought over in 16th century. We had grown together in puerto rico, we had then continued over time together. 1957 we as Puerto Ricans finally earned the right to even wave our own flag. We understand that it is hard to see it from a racist perspective, yet we grew together so tightly, we are almost one in the same, if not the same. We accept that we have our differences in some extent, yet, we must respect the history behind it.
It is wromg amd usually racist to use the N word, but free speech is a human right between the person, and God. If you hear something racist, counter the racism, with facts, logics, and a verbal ass whooping, but don't censor, or criminalize.
Latinx ppl may have experience very similar struggles but at the end of the day, a lot of them don't even identify as black or reject their black traits so it's not cool to use a slur that they have very little or no connection to.
While no one has the right not to be offended, by say, someone expressing their opinion during reasoned discourse, the use of the N word can only be interpreted as a willfully provocative statement of insult by resentful and racist bigots.
when I was younger I thought it was okay that latino people could use the n word because they weren't using it to be offensive but then I realized that sometimes they also are racist to black people but also still use the n word
no, they should not use they n word because black people have a back round due to they words yea some landings have some flavor in them but not full flavor black people to this day have effects due to that we cant go some without getting racial profiled and Latins don't clam them self as black people therefore why should they say that n word that word brought us rain and terror i
when I was young I felt like it was okay to say the n-word cause I went to an all-black school and I heard everyone say it but as I grew up and learned more about racism I just don't feel like its okay
Well..., you've got your whites and you've got your white trash honky crackers. You've got your Latinx and you've got your spics. You've got your Jews and you've got your kikes. Every race has their "derogatory" and every race has been able to transcend that. But most blacks have had it harder than most. I only wish they themselves would stop using it ;)
