If race is a social construct, then why are there minorities?

thats what equality means >< . accepting the diffrent aspects of others and seeing them AS an equal.

We are only equal under law. Just because we should treat others like we are the same, that doesnt mean we are.

Has anyone read the book Anthem, by Ayn Rand? I liked the book, and I think that most people that commented here would, even if you don't agree with her philosophy (Objectivism, I know I don't agree with it). I feel like the message OP is sending is also the message being sent in the book, in a way. While, where I live, we aknowledge people's differences every day, I guess there might be some places that don't. While we are different, it shouldn't mean different treatment under the law. That just leads back to Social Darwinism, which is the ****** excuse that European's used to take Africans as slaves (we are white and civilized, they are black and savages, we must take them and "civilize" them). Being different is great. When it comes to the law, if you were discriminated for any reason, it is bad. It has happened all the time in the history of the world, the best example coming to my head is the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, which prevented Chinese immigrants from entering the US. Doesn't seem fair when hundreds of thousands of white immigrants were still entering the country.
TLDR; Being different is good, discrimination (especially under the law) is bad.

Ayn Rand was a tortured soul who got a first hand experience with psychopatic collectivism and decided that if that is wrong then psychopatic individualism is good.
Though worse then what she was preaching is the way people today understand her message and think its a carte blanche to act like a selfish dick.

I don't know what you people's problem is with op, I agree with him.

Why would I ever want to be considered equal to this?

Should we be DIFFERENT from one another or UNEQUAL?

This is some pretty dumb **** . :l
#267 - turtlespear (11/11/2013) [-]
OP has the right idea. Delighting in each other's differences, rather than trying to hide them by claiming we are all equal or hating each other for them, is the only move that can be of lasting benefit.
#241 - certifiedidiot ONLINE (11/11/2013) [-]
Pretty much aware of that, I just judge people on their character, which I think is the gist of the whole ''everyone is equal''
#240 - xxxsonic fanxxx (11/11/2013) [-]
I don't think OP knows what equality actually means.
User avatar #239 - durkadurka ONLINE (11/11/2013) [-]
Because being different doesn't necessarily mean unequal. Being one race doesn't make you less than other, same goes for gender, intellect, etc.

For one, if we say a group of people are inferior, it then becomes okay to oppress them (a really bad idea).

What's dangerous is when we pretend that different people should have the same OUTCOMES. We'll treat you like everyone else, but what you do with your life is on YOU.
User avatar #238 - killboy (11/11/2013) [-]
You misunderstand.
We're not talking about treating a no life junkie the same as a profound scientist. We're talking about treating everyone the same regarding their race and gender. A black junkie is just as bad as a white one.

In my primary School, i got a very bad education because 70% of the focus was on helping those With Extremely bad grades. Most of the time the Teachers just repeated what we had learned in the previous year so it would help those struggling to Catch up.

The result of this was slightly raising the minoroty of bad grades, and lowering the progress of students With a potential to learn more.

Sometimes giving more Resources to those With bigger needs can backfire

"All men…are NOT created equal! Some are born smarter, or more beautiful, or with parents of greater status. Some, by contrast, are born weak of body or mind, or with few, if any, talents. All men are different! Yes, the very existence of man is discriminatory! That’s why there is war, violence and unrest. Inequality is not evil. Equality is! What became of the EU, who claimed that all are equal? It is in constant conflict because its tenets go against human nature! The Middle Eastern Federation, which harbors similar sentiments, is constantly mired with sloths! But our Britannia is not like them! We put an end to wars and evolve with every conquest! Britannia alone looks forward and moves forward to a better future! The death of my son Clovis is yet more proof that our empire is evolving. Fight! For the future rests in the hands of its ruler! ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!!!!"
