    Comments: Glad you used cites but you could have used more.

    You laid out very compelling reasons for reparations. Although I did not love your use of the words "normal people"/"normal americans" in your opposition constructive to refer to non-slaves.
    No citations. Your arguments are not believable and not well structured. Your argument about 50% was compelling; I think if you had fleshed that out, your argument would have been more persuasive.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Monique Shannon

    Reason for Decision:

    Sources, sources, sources. Emanuel, you referenced that you had sources, but did not include them. Monique, you failed to clearly rebut Emanuel's argument against how to determine who is African American. However, I am glad that you came up with some framework on how to deal with it. I ultimately voted for Monique since her argument was better laid out.
