A debate for mairj23 regarding his claim that "whites have changed the faces of the people in the Bible and have inserted themselves as the people of the Bible, which is utter[sic] ridiculous... this can be used to solidify my argument in terms of "whites being natural-born racists."
I, Pro, will defend the position that the "whitewashing" of Biblical characters is not indicative of natural-born racism inherent and/or exclusive to whites. I will be waiving my first round to give mairj23 the opportunity to fully explain their position before I make any incorrect assumptions. Con may choose to waive their final round or not
Bible: a collection of religious texts, writings, or scriptures considered sacred to Christians, usually consisting of 66 books from Genesis to Revelation.
Whitewashing: The portrayal of an individual, especially in the visual medium, as being white rather than their original race.
Natural-born: having an inherent characteristic or ability that is not learned. (As an example humans have a natural-born instinct to cry when they are in pain, babies do not need to be taught this, by contrast, saying "y'all" as certain regions of the United States colloquially do, is learned. A baby born in Texas will not start saying "y'all" if it grows up in New York with adoptive parents )
Racism: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership in a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized.
