    Use of evidence: 4.5 1.8
    Delivery skill: 4 3.3
    Coherence of arguments: 4 1.9
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4 4.1
    Identification of key points: 4 3
    Comments: If you want me to evaluate an argument through noises in his speech, you have to impact it out more why I should.

    You do a good job citing your sources.

    I really liked your point about the wealth and wage gap, but you don't make that a round-defining issue, which you should have.

    You also define in the proposition constructive that we're paying reparations for slavery, but then you say in you proposition rebuttal, arguments that support all African Americans, not just the heirs of slavery/oppression.

    Nice job in the last speech.
    You need to use more evidence. There is no way, I can see that all your is valid.

    Also, you go to a topic where it has absolutely no relativity to the resolution, and you use a lot of slippery slope arguments. For example, you don't provide any source to back up that backlash might happen, or riots from Asians, or Mexicans. Mostly all of your arguments are all hypothetical, so cite a source where it has relevance to the argument.
    Also, you should stop fidgeting in your speeches for example, the opposition constructive, and stop using filler words inside your speeches. Other than that, your speech was good.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Cameron Hollingshead

    Reason for Decision:

    I am voting in favor of the affirmation because of the fact that Dalante, you have gone off topic, and Cameron has a thorough case, which you barely debated, I have to vote for Cameron.
