An "ad hominem" fallacy is when someone makes a personal attack on somebody in order to try and discredit their argument.

In other words:
"AD HOMINEM" = talking smack on a person

Would you like to spend a week relaxing in the Florida sunshine?
I have a dream that one day my children will be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
