We're all different but should be treated equal.

I think you are missing what part the equality is for. IT's for everyone to have the same opportunity as everyone else. It's so everyone can actually do something with their lives.

TL;DR - Same opportunity for everyone.

yeah but the way 'equality' is actually going is this:

two people apply for a job, one is a man, the other a woman. The company already employes more men than women. So because of 'equality' the comany has to employ the woman, because they need to fulfill a certain 'rate' EVEN if the man has a better education and fulfills the requirements better than the woman.

this is not equality

Yeah! **** equality!
Look at my skin! It determines who i am mentally!
look at my sexual partner, no not who they are person wise but their gender! check that out! Oh yeah, and my Rippling biceps! that makes me different than you guys! oh yeah and check out my AWESOME B+! u only got a C! Ha! don't group me in with you, ya pleb.

Protip: you are allowed to fully appreciate the differences that make us unique while simultaneously treating everyone with equal respect and fairness.

reading only the lines on top doesn't really let you grasp the concept of what I'm saying.
Or didn't you understand the "learn to accept that" part?

Also, while you try to make a blunt statement it basically is what we see day to day. Social circles usually form with people who are similar in many ways while the members still are different. And if you're really telling me that you respect everyone equally you're a ***********... respect is earned, not given.

so if you meet someone you have never met before you will treat them with 0 respect. treat them like complete ****? all people should be treated with respect to the fact that they are a fellow human being.
Whether you are tall, skinny, fat, plagued with down syndrome, black, white, asian, or rainbow colored, i will treat you with fairness, and equality, in general.

then again "equality" is a pretty broad statement. not really sure what you mean by it. im using it generally.

that's not what I said and you know it.
If I meet you for the first time, I will treat you like a neutral. From there the respect I have for you will go up or down. But since this happens really fast I think it's stupid to call that "equal respect". For example: If you bring before me 10 randomly selected people I'll probably have much higher regard for some of them than others within 2 seconds... The same actions don't get the same amount of respect. And that's normal due to each individuals perception of other people. A fat guy running ten miles will earn him much more respect in my book than a very athletic guy doing the same thing.

I work with mentally challenged people, some of them severely. For some of those people even properly asking a question is very demanding and therefore I respect them for giving all they can to do it. If my boss manages to ask me a ******* question it's not that much of an achievement though...

What I'm trying to say is that everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, noone is equal. If you compare two people both of them will be superior and inferior to the other at the same time, it's just a matter of what you're looking at.

There is a difference between equality and being the same.

Everybody is different. I will sooner believe a doctor who tells me that I just have a bad cold, than a concerned friend who tells me I have lung cancer, because his father had lung cancer, and it started the same way.

There are other things my friend will be better at though. Being my friend, for one. He may know several languages, have a good sense of right and wrong, be able to see in the dark better than others, be a really good football player, or have a killer sense of humour.

And even if he isnt... He's still a human being, and is equally important as the aforementioned doctor. Which makes them equal.

As equals, they both have the right to live, to work to their live goals, and get help if they need it.

Equality is not giving everybody a fish, it's learning fishing those who don't know how to fish, and helping those who already know how to fish to put this skill to good use.

you do realize that everyone should be equal in the sense that everyone has the right to vote, if 2 people do the same job they deserve to have the same amount of pay and vacation days. NOT everyone should have the same amount of strength, dumb ass.

"Equality" refers to legal rights, obligations and personal treatment. Nothing more.

But i get your point, people seems to have twisted or lost track of what "equality" means.

It's the gradual moral decline of culture. Years ago people decided the Golder Rule was a bad idea, and did away with its teachings because it appeared to be dubiously worded. Eventually "created equal" will no longer mean what it did when it was written, and then it too will be abolished. When that happens we will be in a much sorrier state then when we found ourselves lacking the Golden Rule.

I believe in equal opportunity.

Everybody should have the same chances to succeed but the people who actually do succeed will be the ones with the talent and drive to work hard.

This *sounds* incredibly racist, but I assume what OP is actually referring to would be things like affirmative action, which seak to create equality of outcome?

Affirmative action is racist.
Nobody should be given any extra help or leg ups because of their race.
Everyone should be left to succeed or fail based on personal merit alone.

Equality of outcome is impossible, and most things which seak to directly create it usually suffer the same pitfalls they're trying to solve.

Every man being created is equal is derived from John Locke's Law of Nature and how it applies to everyone, not that you and I are the exact same. Maybe before you criticize what the media makes you believe, you should do you own research to what it actually means.
