I believe that for BIPOC in the United States, writing is still a practical form of communication. The voices and feelings behind those remarks are people who endure daily oppression. When oppressed individuals write about their experiences through literature, they are able to profit from the voices of other oppressed people and contribute to the production of new knowledge. And hearing voices When we can imagine the plight of the oppressed and have our own ideas, reading about them in text is a powerful approach to touch people’s emotions. Writing is growing in popularity as we know that knowledge is available everywhere in the age of social media, protests, and news broadcasts. People will increasingly turn to authors with a voice on social media to disseminate the word about their plight.For instance, there has been a push to expose discriminators in recent years, and social media voices have aided in their dissemination.
Writing has always been the most effective technique to communicate ideas and opinions. Humans have been endowed by God with the innate ability to speak with one another and form communities. Therefore, information communication in all its forms—including social media posts, articles, scripts, etc.—remains crucial.

I really like your point that people will turn to authors on social media, because that shows that writing is still important but it just has to fit the popular way of getting it to the people, in this case websites like Twitter and Instagram.
