Mathematically speaking, examples of an inequality would be greater than, less than, or equal to problems (>, <, ≠). I guess it’s fair to say it’s the same for our society. During slavery blacks were considered property, not people. Southern white Americans were not ready to accept blacks in their world. To keep all citizens protected under the 14th Amendment our government came up with the separate but equal law. This law required state and local government to provide each race with the same services, access to the same facilities, and accommodations, or segregated. For example, schools were segregated. Blacks went to a school in their neighborhoods. White children went to the school in their neighborhood. But historically, black schools and neighborhoods did not receive the same funding. Because blacks were perceived as “less than” whites they experienced inequalities. Very unfortunate but it’s a learned behavior that has been passed to generations. I have to say that there are extremely nice people in the world. And the key is self love. If you really love yourself and care about how people treat you, you will be kind to everybody. I’m not a big scripture quoter but one of the Ten Commandments request “thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself”. So, if we wanted to be treated with love and compassion we will be loving and compassionate. I assume that will solve the problem of inequality. That’s another post.
