Controversial essay/speech ideas?

We need to write a 1000 word speech essay thing for English and I wanted to make mine really controversial. Not on abortion or anything like that, something really unique that will shock them. Either that, or I wanted to write something from the view of a Hogwarts student. Harry Potter is like, one of the only things I could write about for 1000 words. Something like 'Did Dumbledore raise Harry for slaughter' or 'The abolishment of Slytherin.' I guess I just need ideas..

    I would stick to current, relative topics if you wish to receive best marks from your teacher.You mentioned abortion, but that, of course, is a VERY controversial issue. Too much, maybe, for a school project. But, you can do something related. How about “Teen baby culture?” Discuss MTV idolizing teen pregnancy? Why don’t you discuss questions like “Why do we have to take a test to drive a car, but bringing a person into this world is considered a right and not a privilege?”And what is cool, you can discuss this no matter what your opinion is. Either pro or con, you can present an interesting, prevalent, worth-while topic that will certainly stir up some controversy.
