A lot of my social media posts are written for a wide audience, but it can be tricky to do so in a way that will engage with a wide swath of people.
There are a lot of topics that need to be addressed in social justice posts, but many of them require a little bit of nuance and a lot more thought than I usually give out.
Here are some tips for how to write posts that will resonate with people of all stripes.
Social justice is not a thing for me.
It is something that I want to promote and that I value, but I do not want to be the person that is pushing that agenda for my own benefit.
That means not putting myself in a box and trying to make a point.
It means being myself, as I am, and not trying to get the attention of a particular group.
And most importantly, I want people to know that I am not in their business.
It’s up to them to make that choice.
So please, be yourself, not as you are supposed to be.
The best way to make sure your post is relevant is to be able to point out important things that people are already talking about.
So I will post a link to a news article about the murder of someone I care about, and a reader will probably get that article by looking at the link.
And if you want to make it personal, make sure that the link points to an article that you actually read, not an article you see on Facebook or on Twitter.
A great example of this is my recent article on why we need to end white supremacy, and how the “other side” of that fight is also white supremacy.
Don’t just repeat the same tired talking points.
Social media has changed the way we talk about issues, but we still need to talk about the issues in a more nuanced and thought-provoking way.
So for example, I am very familiar with the concept of “unintentional racism” and how we often forget to be aware of the ways that we perpetuate white supremacy in our society.
If I am a woman, and someone says something like, “I’m going to hate you for having the hair,” or, “You’re going to get raped by your husband because he’s white,” or “You can’t date a black man because he has a beard,” then I’m not going to just say, “Wow, you’re racist.”
It’s important to point this out, and to have a voice, not just be passive.
And I encourage people to do that in their posts.
There is a lot that people can say that they don’t think is important to say in a social justice post, so make sure you get to the heart of the issue.
For example, it’s hard for me to talk to a lot people who have a negative opinion of white people, but in the same article I said, “We are all Americans and we all deserve to have equal rights.”
That kind of specificity will make people feel a little more at ease about the issue and also give them a better sense of what the other side is saying.
And while it is easy to talk up your own success in life, it is also important to show them the things that you’ve achieved that they can relate to.
I often write articles for social justice sites about my favorite hobbies, and my favorite passions.
I like to think that the things I am most passionate about are also the things most often taken for granted.
But when it comes to my favorite hobby, my favorite job, or my favorite music, I try to make this as clear as possible.
Give the person you’re talking to a chance.
You are talking to someone, right?
If you can give them an opportunity to respond, it will make the discussion more engaging.
I usually like to make an introduction at the beginning of a post, and then I’ll answer questions or talk about my own life.
When I post something that is related to social injustice, I usually go into it in detail and talk about why it’s important, but the most important thing I try for is to let the person know that they’re not alone.
They can talk to other people who are affected by this issue, and maybe they’ll learn something that will help them feel better about themselves.
Don the hat.
Social injustice is something we can’t escape.
I do a lot to try to be on the frontlines of this issue.
I volunteer in the community, I’m a part of the Black Lives Matter movement, and I’m involved in the Black feminist movement.
I’m also a regular guest on shows like The Black Women’s Show, and have been featured on many national and international news shows.
And because of that, I’ve had a lot chances to speak about social justice
