Like all of the comments in the comment section, it ain't about being the same. It's about giving the same to everyone. You can't give a black guy nothing because you don't like him. You can't make the white girl your slave because you think she belongs in the kitchen. Freedom for everyone, freedom for all.

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.

"Equality" isn't about being the ******* same kind of people, it's about having the same opportunities in life...

who ever said people cant be different, people cant be better than someone else in a particular field? equality is about being treated equally!! your post makes no sense OP you are just pointing out the obvious fact that people differ.

The point of equality is that we acknowledge that people are not equal but articulate that we should none the less treat everyone equally. Men are physically stronger than women on broad average, but that doesn't mean men are the master sex destined to rule all. Certain racial and social demographics score higher and perform better in academia, but that doesn't mean we should start drawing lines and cutting college scholarships based on those lines, because that would be unfair.

Whoever made this, and everyone that is agreeing with it, is rather missing the point of the actual idea of equality. We say that everyone is equal in standing because of the principle of universal fairness, and the idea that we do not know enough to be fit to judge. To claim otherwise is to begin walking a path that can only lead to discrimination of one sort or another, be it against race, sex, genetics, or other innate characteristics like personality.

We aren't equal, but we deserve equal oppertunities.

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?
#219 to #215 - itsbendingtime (11/11/2013) [-]
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.

to Americans equality is supposed to mean that everyone has the same rights. Unfortunately you are correct now days it is all ******** . (he has something I don't, why don't I have it am I not equal?) what they don't say is that the other guy worked his ass off for it or made smart investments, and that the speaker has the exact same right to work his own ass off or or make smart investments in order to get what he wants.

That's modern equality.

The struggle for equality of old was for equal rights and opportunity, not petty difference. We live in a day of the outcomes of that struggle: women have mostly equal rights, blacks are encroaching on the dawn of equal opportunity, and immigrants have garnered much more respect than before.

When you think of equality, you shouldn't think of the modern brand of "equality" that argues every difference. Rather, think of equal freedom. The freedom the country was founded on. An accurate representation of inequality would the refusal of gays to marry or adopt.

You have no idea what "equality" means. People are different from each other, but that doesn't make any person any less than anyone else just based on their born differences.

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.

I agree with everything accept race. We invented that concept. The only human race out there is called human.

And people are preaching for equal RIGHTS. Obviously we have differences, but people should have the same freedom.

I have some ideas of how we can create equality, but we need to fix the constitution.

One of the reasons I think democracy is dumb.

Why makes humans so superior? Their intellect. Are we doing well currently? No(killing ourselfs at massive rates. And soon overpopulation will be a problem. Not to mention the world food problem.).
So what do we need? People capable of saving us. Which people? Intellectual people, as that is what makes us humans better thna other organisms on our planet.

We're different, some people should have more rights on some grounds and some on others. The whole equality thing is just plain stupid.
User avatar #22 to #21 - atomicman (11/10/2013) [-]
We aren't doing even remotely great. If you think we live in a golden age you're ignorant behond comprehension. You can't deny so many people are suffering every single second that goes by, we can't deny that overpopulation will soon claim the lives of thousands a week.

I think the world food problem and world energy problem *might* be solved in time. But the fact that overpopulation will become a problem, and that research generally goes way slower than it should be is not to be denied.

Clever people don't have to be better people(?). I've no clue how you came up with that.I just said you must let people do what they excel at, and clever people excel at organising things generally. Democracy allows 'huhuhuh he has a funny beard'-voters to vote aswell, which in my book is dumb.

Has it ever occurred to you that people fight and preach equality not because they want people to ignore physical traits, but instead make sure these traits does not make it so that some people are treated unfairly or unjust. equality is not about ignoring that someone is fat or fit, it's about making sure both the fat and fit get's the same opportunities regardless of their form.

A writing from Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

It's actually pretty insightful. It's from during the Cold War so you might want to think about how communism influenced this writing.
