Friday roundup: Five things worth paying attention to this week

11.23. 2018 Posted By: Ben Tapper 135 Times read

Here are five things worth paying attention to this week. I recommend selecting one or two and jumping in over the next week.

  1. I know I’ve been affected by the masculine norms mentioned in this video.
  2. Representative Ilhan Omar sheds light on the experience of refugees that are resettled in the United States.
  3. Miseducation lays the foundation for division, and this video helps explain how this is possible.
  4. For many millennials like myself, student loan forgiveness is a hot topic, and we’re watching our government closely.
  5. For those who are searching for a way to be proud of their white identity without feeding into racism, this conversation is an important one.
