A friend of mine posted this on FB. I wish more people could grasp this. Seeing it made me say “yes!”.
Been thinking about this a lot lately. “Equal treatment” is not the same as “fair treatment” and is not in itself “fair” or “just”. Equal treatment does not take into consideration each person’s culture, situation, personal idiosyncrasies, or anything else about them.
It really just boils down to “treat each other with respect.” ” Be thoughtful/mindful.” “Love thy neighbor as thyself.”
Same as every other single fucking problem with society. If everyone can get THAT pounded into their damn heads, we’ll all be better off.
