For the first time in history, a black female college debate team has won a “national championship.” However, it wasn’t because they are the best at debating.
The debate was held by the The Cross Examination Debate Association [CEDA], which has decided that traditional debate platforms reek of “racism” and “white privilege.” For at least the past two competitions, the event has turned into an affirmative action cartoon. Black teams have been rewarded for defying the rules and using rap songs.
Local media went bonkers about the “first black female debate team to win a national championship.” However, none of the details of the actual debate are disclosed in any “mainstream” media report. To be frank, the claim by local media that the pair constitute “national champions” is a hoax.
CEDA’s national championship no longer even remotely resembles a serious debate competition. They are also doing a huge disservice to black college students by encouraging this behavior.
The most recent example of this “politically correct” propaganda came from the March 24th Cross Examination Debate Association, where two Towson University students, identified as black females by The Atlantic, won the championship.
The students were challenged to debate presidential war powers. Instead of talking about the topic, they insisted on discussing the supposed war on black communities being waged by the U.S. government.
In the final round, the Towson students faced another black team, from the University of Oklahoma. The teams used “spoken-word poetry,“ hip-hop and rap to argue about concepts such as “nigga authenticity” for four hours.
They refused to follow the clock, which keeps strict time for debate participant. One of the Oklahoma students even yelled, “F*** the time!” when his time ran out, and continued talking.
A similar thing happened last year, in 2013, according to The Atlantic. The winning team consisted of two black men from Emporia State University. During the contest they quickly went off topic and instead chose to discuss how college debate tournaments promote the interest of straight, white, rich people.
When some student spoke up about how the rules were being broken and the winners weren’t even on topic, a politically correct law professor at the University of California named Osagie Obasogie replied concerning the complaint saying “This is the power of racial subordination: making the viewpoint of the dominant group seem like the only true reality.”
