Do we really need a Rachel Dolezal documentary?

Netflix is releasing a documentary about Rachel Dolezal, the disgraced former NAACP chapter president who lied about many parts of her biography, including her ethnicity. Many are angry Netflix gave Dolezal a platform, including Arwa Mahdawi, who argues that "getting a movie made about your life because you appropriated blackness and then lied about it seems like peak white privilege."

Would the world be better off without religion?

A new study claims queer teenagers raised with strong religious beliefs are more likely to attempt suicide. Critics of organized religion say this is yet another example of how religion foments hatred, castes, subjugation, corruption, and war. But others say religion reassures humans about death, offers a code of morality, and gives us sustenance during tragedy. Many of our greatest peace...

Do white people need to stop using the term 'woke'?

The term "woke" has been part of African-American vernacular for decades, and refers specifically to political consciousness of black oppression and liberation. But many say its pro-black political meaning has been diluted by mainstream misinterpretation and mocking or clueless usage by white people.

Is Shakespeare overrated?

William Shakespeare's plays are more than 400 years old, yet they're still required reading in American high schools and universities. Literary scholars consider Shakespeare the greatest writer in the history of the English language. But Shakespearean language is antiquated, tough to read, and many students dread slogging through it. Some of the plays are just bad. Brilliant authors like Leo...

Should Girl Scouts be permitted to sell cookies outside of weed dispensaries?

The Girl Scouts of Colorado now allows Girl Scouts to sell cookies outside cannabis dispensaries. Previously, Girl Scouts could only ply their wares outside "family-oriented" businesses, but the new regulations now permit sales at weed stores, and some scouts are making bank as a result. Critics are horrified and argue we must protect children from marijuana, but others applaud the girls'...

Is it still important to get a job before graduation?

Graduation season is here! That means college seniors around the nation are repressing the urge to murder that person who won't shut up about the sweet job they have lined up. For some it's still essential to have that first job lined up—it's the first step in their career. Others don't see the rush. It's not like we'll ever pay off our student loans. Which side are you on? 😂 🤔

Would you rather start your career right after graduation or take a vacation first?

Would you turn down a job if you had to wear a suit or heels?

Many people say they could never wear a suit to work. Workplace dress codes have relaxed considerably, but some offices still enforce strict dress codes. Jobs in banking, insurance, politics, law, and sales may still require a two-piece suit (plus nylons and closed-toe heels if you're a woman). Older generations often see suits as a sign of a serious career, while younger folks point out that...

Would you rather have a higher salary or more vacation days?

When looking for work, some Americans weigh which benefit they want more: higher salary or more vacation time. Some job seekers argue benefits like paid time off are more valuable to them than higher salaries.

Is royalty outdated and irrelevant?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding is proof that we still care about royal families. A lot. However, a growing number of people say royalty is a thing of the past and should be left there alongside knights, serfs and the Black Death. Why all the celebrity worship and pretending a family is somehow better and above others? But some think royalty is still important because they help unite...
