Being equal doesn't mean you can't be different. Being equal means you won't be treated better or worse just for being different.
Being equal doesn't mean you are as good as anyone in any skill. Being equal means that those who have the skill should be able to get the job, in spite of his/her sexual orientation, skin colour, ethnicity etc.
Being equal is the freedom to be whatever you want/can, not being something because someone else wants to be something they want.

We can never be truly equal, nor can society be ever perfect, but we can always try to make this world a better place for the outcasts and oppressed.

How would you choose who's votes should have greater impact on the results? Yes, people make bad decisions, but it isn't directly proportional to the amount of education one has had. Where do you draw the line between dumb and smart people? You don't.
Maybe the rank of one's vote should be measured by their social values? Would you give more weight to someone's vote who value market economy over ecological sustainability or the person with opposite values? To one who values different things than the other, the latter's decisions may seem dumb, when in fact both are probably doing their best to choose the best alternative for their own values.

He's trying to say stupid people's votes shouldn't count the same as an intelligent person's, which sounds like a great idea (stupid people don't research important political issues, etc.) but he forgets that that would mean his vote doesn't count.

Also, it would be oppression if they weren't allowed.

Equality is stupid.
Some people are better at a job, they should get it.
It's ridiculous to give the same odds of hiring a sociopathic, necrophiliac, rapist as a paramedic as a fit, healthy doctor with qualifications.
Some people are lower, some people are higher. Deal with it.

No, you shouldn't give the job to a person who clearly has mental problems and may prove to be a safety risk for the work place. Being a necrophiliac is as much a mental problem as being a homosexual is. You don't see homosexual banging every man (or a woman if you're a lesbian) they see on the streets, so why would a mentally healthy necrophiliac do it to every corpse they see?
Rapists, on the other hand, can't control their desires and danger for a work place with potential victims.

On the top of all, I never said that everybody should get the job. As a matter of fact I said the exact opposite. Those who have the needed skills and traits should get the job, in spite of the traits they have that have nothing to do with the job, like skin colour, ethnicity etc.

JAYSUS! I didn't believe my comment was gonna get that much publicity.

As for the people who say that some votes should have a greater impact in democratic elections than others, I ask you this: How are you going to decide whose vote should be stronger? Give the power to the people who have greater education? The people with higher IQ? The people with high status?
No one can tell by looking at any traits in any human what consequences their decisions may have. High IQ doesn't mean you know how to act in making a real life decision. When voting, we can only hope that the result of making our choice will be for the greater good.
True, there are "dumb" people choosing from options they can hardly understand, but where are you going to draw the line?
NO! YOU can't draw a line!

Why should YOUR voice be better?!! Is it because YOU think you're right?!

And yet the LSAT scores for Puerto Ricans are higher for middle than for upper-middle and higher, so maybe intelligence and LSAT scores don't have a linear correlation?

Also, using LSAT scores to prove intelligence? Why don't you use a more standardized test like IQ (and use a more recent set of IQ scores please, nothing from the early 1900s) or even college GPAs?

And statistically significant differences usually only matter that much when we're talking at least 2 SDs away from the mean (or in this case, the white mean). In fact, in your LSAT example, you really only have a case if the distances between white scores and black scores are statistically significant in difference

I think you might be one of those folks who likes to find charts on the internet to prove your bias, instead of those actually interested in the facts.

You obviously have never heard of the 1980s crack epidemic. There's a reason why certain races commit more crime than others. I suppose thick-skulled and ignorant people are unable to comprehend that.

should the people who don't need the government's help also be forced to have their chances reduced for the sake of equal chances?

No, chances as in being given the chance to prove that you can handle, let's say education. Those that are smarter will go to the higher levels, while those that are not as smart are going to the lower levels. However, it should not be predetermined where a child will go to.

We won't all ever be equal. That's not the point. It's about equal opportunity. Everybody deserves the freedom to do what they want with their life without being discriminated against based on predetermined stereotypes or prejudices. We can support individuality without undermining anyone's human rights, and vice versa.

*sigh* gonna take some heat on this one...

If it's about equal opportunity, why does the LGBT community act like they're channeling the spirit of the Civil Rights Movement from the 70s when no homosexual has ever had his rights denied to him under the Constitution? Why are they in the right to petition for a form of marriage unique to their minority group?

They can't get married, many can't adopt kids, they couldn't openly serve in the military until very recently, and until the recent discrimination bill was passed they had no workplace security if an employer decided to fire or harass them for their sexual orientation. Not to mention some of the grotesque hate crimes committed against gays.

They can't get married, they are discriminated in many other ways. Hate crimes are committed upon them often, to appalling levels. They are treated like filth among certain people. Religions point to them as vile, something that is bad enough to be killed for.

To emphasize my point I will use this example:

6/3 = 2 six thirds is equal to two

But these numbers are completely different, one is a fraction and the other is a whole number. The numbers on the left are greater than the number on the right, and the denominator of the fraction is odd, and the whole number is even. Because I have listed the things that makes these two numbers different I have effectively proved why they are not equal.
WRONG. The two numbers are equal even if they aren't identical. And this ignorant puffin needs to understand that we can all be different as well as equal.

while i agree with you; i would ask that you recognize that the majority of people are confusing identical with equal when preaching equality.

a fat person who exceeds the weight limit of a ride should not ride for their own safety but would call the denial of their allowance to ride "inequality"

Nothing is equal, but that doesn't mean the world should be so unequal.
Why should my future be denied simply because I'm poorer than someone?
You can only choose so much and you can't do anything about the hand you were dealt.

After all assigning everyone a value isn't so great when you're on the short end of the stick. That's an ugly world, and quite an ignorant one.

Equality and sameness are not..well...the same.
Different peoples can be on equal ground without being considered homogeneous.
To put it in math terms: two plus two equals four, but is most certainly not the same thing as 4.
