If I were still teaching Critical Thinking, I'd bring in this video for my class to watch, and then we'd slow it down and see if we could figure out when the speakers were making fallacies, what arguments they were actually making, what strengthened those arguments and weakened them, etc. Alas, I'm not still teaching Critical Thinking, although I'd like to again someday soon. Until then, I'm curious to know what y'all think. This is a clip of a discussion between Bill Maher, Ben Affleck, Nicholas Kristoff, and Sam Harris, about Islam/Islamaphobia. I might as well tip my hand right here and now and say I'm firmly on the side of Ben & Nicholas. I think that Ben is so angry (understandably) that he's having a hard time stating clearly what he believes, but right in the last few seconds he and Nicholas say really clearly what they're saying....this conversation is such an excellent example of the kind of racism that condemns black urban people because "statistics show" that black people commit more crimes.
