Uh right, i will continue to do the work outside of the legal structure and
in it when necessary to increase minority access to and completion of
college. I dont doubt the  efficacy of my methods, and sure i didnt see the
same debates you saw but my term heard and i saw many teams adamently
defending the necessity of using the law to challenege racial discrimination
and i am simply asking those that made the claims to follow up on them.

Furthermore i understand debaters cant sue for other peoples inclusion(in a
basic sense of the term i think there could be a claimant who suggested that
they where damaged by the lack of minority inclusion in the community, but
im probably wrong like you said im not in the highly technical debates) but
there are legal cases and movements that debaters can contribute their
skills and dedication to and furthermore if through those super high end
debates you saw provide the training they promise then it seems as if you
can figure out how to uses cases on your campus as entree points to legal
justice movements.

or maybe all those things i heard in debates where just lies and nods to
racial inclusion?
