Young People and Race – level 3

16-09-2020 07:00

Twitter, Instagram and influencers are providing a pipeline for race-related news for younger people.

Gen Z and millennials are at the forefront of the conversations surrounding race, and according to a survey, more than 80% of respondents aged 18 – 37 feel responsible for educating themselves when it comes to race-related issues. Also, those young audiences have a clear favorite venue for information: social media.

Social media has been used as a tool for social justice activists; however, it is often used to promote racism. Experts warn that rather than having only online conversations, people should also be having important conversations with their friends and family.

Difficult words: pipeline (a direct channel for information), Gen Z (people who were born in the US and Western Europe after 2001), millennial (a person who was born between 1981 and 1996), forefront (ahead of everyone else).
