I WANT to live in a world where gender/ethnicity/sexual orientation doesn't matter - a world where everyone gets fair and equal consideration based on their deeds - that's the world I want. But it's not the world we HAVE.
A proposed solution by many is to shut our eyes and ears really tight and just BELIEVE everyone is equal until - POOF - like magic, it happens and we all live in and enjoy this ideal world. If that's your "solution", you're just another part of the problem. There are white supremacists still openly marching through your streets and people want to pretend everything's fair and equal and we should all just shut up about it?
I'm not going to pretend that I live in a world where black people in America (for example) don't experience life-altering inequality on a regular basis, because I treat everyone equally. I guess it's probably some sort of extreme libertarian bulls--t that I don't subscribe to.
