Most likely you are.
Why is that? Or how so?
It almost sounds like you're saying treating people equally means to treat people differently.
You are confusing equality with equity. Equal opportunity is what is important not equal outcome
The belief of treating people equally does not mean give one group am advantage. No one is looking for an advantage just the same rights as the privileged. The outcome after that is determined by the determination to succeed. by the way you're not doing a very good job of hiding your racist views
@crmoore. If it is truly treating people equally, then I am all for it. . But i have seen where “Being equal “ was interpreted by government and businesses as filling quotas. If being honest is racist, then I guess i might be?
@crmoore. Maybe I should say that I have lived it!
Well we shouldn't condemn something due to the actions of others misinterpreting it. I believe what they did was equity, not equality.
Equity should be condemned
In many cases, yes, but we shouldn't be so absolute about it. In some cases equity is great, like that one photo that is circulating online.https://images.app.goo.gl/ujWemn643CRQd1dG6
Equity is the exact opposite of equality, and has no place in this world.
So you think the photo I linked is immoral?
Yes equity is immoral and the downfall of any society.
Can you explain what is immoral about that picture?
Forcibly taking from one to give to another is immoral.
But nobody is having their things being forcibly taken away in that photo.
You dont see the goverment holding a gun to the dude and threatening his life if he doesn't give up his boxes
Also why would I do anything to better myself if I can just take from people that worked hard. And the opposite. Why would I work hard to earn the same as the guy doing nothing
I don't think the dude would bring a box to the game that he knows he could see. The box likely belongs to the statium. Equality would be the stadium giving everyone a box, regardless of whether they need it, equity would be giving those who need the boxes to see the game.I'll repeat myself, equity in many cases is immoral, but not every case. Not everyone needs a box to see, so in situations like this, there's nothing wrong with giving them to people who need them and not giving them to people who don't.
Stadiums dont give boxes to people so they can watch the game for free. They either brought them or stole them. And are also stealing from the Stadium and teams
Yeah and stadiums also don't have opaque fences in places that block vision. The illustration is conceptual, not a realistic interpretation. Of course stadiums don't have boxes lying around specifically to be uses to prop people up. And how are they stealing from the stadium and teams?
Watching a game without paying is stealing from the stadium and the teams. That is how they make money to keep playing. By people watching the games. Similar to pirating music movies and games.
I could be wrong but I don't think the implication is that they were watching without paying. Again, it's a conceptual, informative graphic, not a realistic illustration. Notice how the surrounding wall to the stadium in the background, as well as the wall they're looking over, is all grey. Not to mention, what does equality and equity have to do with illegally watching baseball games? You're looking at the illustration too literally.
To be more clear in the grey perimeter wall, I don't think stadiums have that where people just walking by can prop their head over the wall and look. So the illustration isn't supposed to be a realistic interpretation.
I'm making a point and encouraging discussion, not stating that treating people equally means selectively propping certain groups up.
In what way?
In any way. Equality means everyone is on a flat playing field. No one gets propped up, no one gets knocked down.
Yeah, I totally misread your comment. I thought you said equality DOES mean knocking people down. Totally my mistake.
No worries mate!
Propping up others requires you to lower some. That is the goal of equity. I say play to your strengths, but everyone will have different levels of success.
