Human Equality: A Reality Or A Mere Ilusion?

We are familiar with the phrase "All men are created equal", "Equality before the law", and "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" all of which advanced the idea or notion of Human Equality. In theory such thought or concept is good and very laudable but in actual practice equality seems to remain to be a very illusive dream. Is Human Equality really possible in this world? Do you believe in Human Equality? Is the idea of Human Equality an empty and useless concept? Picture credit: truth-seeker.info

I do believe in human equality, however, that is not possible due to many reasons and we all know those reasons. We all have the same blood color that is enough proof that we are all equal irregardless of our skin color, race and differences. But , differences (mind setting , pride etc) gives a concrete wall in human equality.

Human equality is a nice thought and idea. People work towards that, and have laws in place bringing equality to the workplace and human relations, yet it is also a concept that though a good one, will never completely see reality because people are selfish and don't see equality as being for everyone, when they think they are better than everyone else. It is hard to see equality when different ethnic groups are standing against each other. It is hard to see equality with so much hate in the world.

Maybe it's the wording -- no one is equal to each other , in the sense that we are all unique, all different. That said - people deserve certain type of treatment no matter what their situation is - to be treated fairly, politely, equal opportunities when and where possible, etc...
No it's not and it's not even true that all men are created equal, because those who are born in rich countries from wealthy families have so many more opportunities of someone who was born in a poor country from a poor family. Disparity starts at the right moment you com to life.
