I do not believe that there is white male privilege.

Added:
--> @Pinkfreud08

Vote Reported: Pinkfreud08 // Mod Action: Removed

Points awarded: 3 points to pro for arguments, 2 sources to con for sources

RFD:

Con cited more sources than pro did, therefore con should win on sources. However in terms of arguments, while con did make decent arguments, pro refuted every single one of them using common sense with a few examples.

Reason for Mod Action: The voter fails to meet the requirements set forth by the COC found here https://www.debateart.com/rules

(1) In order to award an argument point, the voter must:

Survey the main arguments and counterarguments presented in the debate
Weigh those arguments against each other (or explain why certain arguments need not be weighed based on what transpired within the debate itself)
Explain how, through the process of weighing, they arrived at their voting decision with regard to assigning argument points

Weighing entails analyzing how the relative strength of one argument or set of arguments outweighed (that is, out-impacted) and/or precluded another argument or set of arguments. Weighing requires analyzing and situating arguments and counterarguments within the context of the debate as a whole.

(2) In order to award a source point, the voter must:

Explain, on balance, how each debater's sources impact the debate
Directly evaluate at least one source in particular cited in the debate and explain how it either bolstered or weakened the argument it was used to support
Must explain how and why one debater's use of sources overall was superior to the other's
The key is qulality, not quantity. Even if one side fails to use sources, one still needs to explain why the other sources are important and matter to the debate.

The voter fails to do this thus his vote is removed.

Vote Reported: Wrick-it-Ralph // Mod Action: Removed

Points awarded: 2 sources to pro for sources

RFD: Neither said made sufficient arguments. Con did not rule out enough alternatives and Pro grounded the argument in a slippery slope fallacy.
Con gets this by default because pro did not provide any sources

Yes, east asians and Jews have the highest IQ on average. Much of it is cultural/environmental though and I am a lot less "nature over nurture" than a true "race realist".

Added:
--> @Our_Boat_is_Right

Harvard specifically has higher entrance criteria for asians because they generally perform better in ways that would get them into harvard. In contrast, Blacks can have a low math score, like the 94th percentile, and still gain entrance to MIT which puts them at a severe disadvantage automatically being underprepared for the curriculum.

Awful how unintended consequences work.

"whites usually have higher IQs than most other races."

lol I'm assuming Asians are the exception to most other races 😂

Yeah I noticed that, thanks for looking out though.

How about you argue for the existence of white male privilege and justincole argues against it since I think he made a mistake on the positions.

Added:
--> @justincole

Your position in the description contradicts your stance on the issue.
