4. Use Social Media Wisely
Today, the power of the media is so powerful it’s become a cliche. Blame it on the Internet and its evil stepchild social media, where freedom of expression is rampant. So instead become more aware, more mindful, choose to spread positive messages instead, and communicate understanding. Get involved in the good debates. Don’t be afraid to question everything. Become an armchair activist. Take back the Internet.
3. Remaining Apathetic
The only thing that’s worse than making a mistake is doing nothing at all. The biggest crime in history are the bystanders, those spectators who just stands back and watches, refusing responsibility, while making excuses that getting involved is futile. That the situation is too big and beyond repair, disguising their cowardice with being peaceful. The world is becoming stagnant because most don’t care enough. They’ll sacrifice their feelings, their emotions at the altar of cynicism. They don’t hope because of the fear of failure. Courage is everything.
2. Gauge Your Humor
What you might think as funny can be demeaning to others, such as minorities or the underprivileged. How do you classify “entertainment?” What are the jokes you laugh at? Are they racist, do they make fun or belittle others. What are the stereotypes that you’re enforcing, this by laughing at a joke about certain groups. Know that speakers or educators banter, crack jokes with their audience to get their attention. Prejudice is injustice.
1. Watch What You Say
Words are like daggers with ninja poison tips. The greatest example are swear words, and words that demean. They instantly degrade people who are different or not liked. What words can do is it vilify and tarnish the victims who are weak or at a disadvantage. Why is it that the f*** word is used so freely, this to express anything from hate to sex. The most basic way to fight injustice is by building better blocks of vocabulary.
