      Students have come to understand “fairness” as simply equal treatment. You’re familiar with this playground mentality of fairness: “I get two crackers, and you two crackers.” But here’s the thing: Treating everyone exactly the same actually is not fair. What equal treatment does do is erase our differences and promote privilege. Let me break it down. Equality in America has been fought for decades until now, equality in race is still undecided.

    The social equality Is a state in which all persons within a specific society or isolated group have the same status in certain respects. These aspects include civil rights, freedom of expression, property rights and have the same access to certain social goods and services. The concept of social equality also includes definitions of economic equality, health equity and other social security.   The Equality Act defies the purpose of anti-discrimination laws. The original Civil Rights Act was enacted to protect African-Americans from being denied access to material goods and services.
