Our Challenger this week comes from Arguing With Signposts
. He is a regular reader and commentor at Dean's World
and others, and this week Bryan S. joins us to do Battle. He was originally scheduled to face Iron Blogger Democrat, Jay Bullock, but when he and another Iron Blogger had to swap schedules, plans changed. Bryan has agreed to remain Challenger this week, and will be returning soon to Battle Jay as well.
Iron Blogger Green, Drucilla Blood, I summon you to the field of battle! May you stand strong and claim our 6th victory by a debuting Iron Blogger!
If memory serves me right, while we have enjoyed such Battles as Battle Rumsfeld, Battle School Vouchers and Battle Death Penalty, the truly invigorating Battles have been those that push the boundaries of current debate. Battle Torture, Battle Gay Marriage, and our most recent Battles on Terrorism, Patriotism and Islam have really seen the sparks fly and the rhetoric clash. This is the heart of Iron Blog - discussion of the issues we normally do not discuss. I wish to keep this current trend going, and so I passed on interesting but unexciting Topics like File Sharing, Copyright and Unilateral Intervention. The Topic for the Battle is this:
Keeping race out of the institution, or institutionalizing race? Let's see what our Combatants have to say.
