    Comments: Minjae, nice delivery skills. I was impressed.

    But ancestry.com is not a reliable source, because they do not have extensive databases, and it is hard to use the process. To prove this, I my self have used it, and I saw that you had to fill in your appearances, and who your ancestors were. If people lied about it, then everybody would receive reparations.

    You don't respond to Kathy's point about not everyone owning a laptop, and so your idea of reparations would be classist, and only the rich would receive reparations.

    Your claim that printing money would bring back the money to the former state they are in, is simply false. Everytime the U.S. prints out money the value of the money decreases also known as inflation. The U.S. prints money to replace old money, but it doesn't just simply appear. Or else the U.S. would already have done that.

    You also drop Kathy's 3-5 contention.
    Kathy, you don't provide valid examples and analogies for there was never a backlash in Hawaii, and if there was, the social media wouldn't hide it.

    I like your responsiveness to your opponent, but next time try to speak more clearly.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Kathy Lee

    Reason for Decision:

    I decided that, because Kathy rebutted all of Minjae's rebuttals, and Minjae did not answer some of Kathy's rebuttals.
