We are only equal under law. Just because we should treat others like we are the same, that doesnt mean we are.
User avatar #308 - mrradical (11/11/2013) [-]

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.

I don't think OP knows what equality actually means.

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.

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.

...Equality is acceptance...
Did you miss the memo or something?

Please, Funnyjunk, for the love of god, stop spewing this pseudo-intellectual ******** . Could I just get some ************* funny on the front page, please?

My definition of true equality is when everyone has the exact same opportunities no matter what they are/what their background is (I'm a communist, I admit it).

Education, Work, etc. You can never have equality intellectually, because there will always be someone a bit smarter or (no offense) a bit dumber than somebody else. But as long as they have the same opportunity, then they are equal.

But that's just me.

How does race affect anything? Anyone has the chance to do great things.

if you're interested in questions of equality, check out John Rawls. He's a legitimate source of information on the subject

Everyone doesn't need to be the same for us to treat them equally.

This new *le maymay is pure ******* cancer.

guise pls persecute me so my retarded half-baked attempts at thinking are justified

No, **** you. There is nobody on Earth with a brain that thinks people are inherently equal in their blood, there isn't even a radical example of this kind of person. Equality has never meant that, any idiot will tell you that it just means to treat people fairly and judge them by their character. This is the very foundation of the concepts of freedom and liberty. It is what generations of soldiers all across the first world fought for. It is such a truism that you must be incredibly ******* retarded to need to have it explained to you.

Either that, or you are an edgy cognitively biased **** . Maybe Hitler was right after all, these people are different by nature, so why shouldn't we treat them differently?

TL-DR (lol emoticons), you are retarded and deserve to be called out for it.

I agree with this, but I think that everyone should be treated equally, or at least with the same amount of respect.
User avatar #40 - stifflimb ONLINE (11/10/2013) [-]
People are not equal and should not be, but all should be TREATED as equals!
