To be fair, they were trained in the 'debate style' that's become commonplace in the past decade or so; white, black or whatever, this is how 'debate' is conducted at these places.

It's not about rational debate, it's about swaying the judge's feelings.

Yeah, I got a little dizzy there for a second, too. Suffice to say I pay no attention to this shit. It's circle-jerking for the affluent student.
