Equality I believe in equality. I think everyone should be treated equally, and of the same quality. Nobody is exactly the same; everybody thinks different, acts different and has their own personality, everyone has something that makes them themselves. Just because someone talks different, or has a different skin color then you, doesn’t mean they should be looked at any different than anyone else. Being different is good, if there was no difference in any of us this world would be a boring place. You wouldn’t get to meet new exciting people because they’d be just like the rest. There is no reason anybody in this world shouldn’t have a chance, everybody should have a chance to be treated just like everyone else. Some people believe others should be treated differently because of their beliefs, religion, ethnicity, sex and much more. Why should they though? If you were to ask a random person why anybody should be treated different than another, I can guarantee they wouldn’t have a very good answer. People believe this because that’s what social media, and society has taught them. I believe that we should all be treated the same because nobody in the human race has any more rights or freedom than anybody else. I think that separating people into ‘categories’ is not right. People should look beyond others physical appearance before they judge them. Even if you don’t like how they look, or who they associate with doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give them a chance. There are good people out there. I believe there is good in everyone, but nobody takes the time to find the good in others. Nowadays we just glance at someone and if we don’t like the way there dressed, or who they’re with we automatically judge them for who they are not, and move onto the next. Americans have the right to freedom of speech, and I believe we take this privilege for granted. People feel that they can just say/do whatever they want whenever they want regarding any laws, or rules. I went to high school in Tillamook OR and everybody there was separated into different groups. All of the Hispanics hung out, all the ‘hicks’ as people would call them hung out, all the nerdy people hung out, and everybody had their own category. Most people thought they were better than others, which always stirred up drama. One night one of my friends and I were going to the beach to meet some friends and she was driving. She was driving too fast, and uninsured and she knew that what she was doing was wrong. About half way to the beach, looking in the rear view mirror all you saw was red and blue flashing lights. Uh oh. So once the cop came up to her window she refused to give him any of her information and her excuse was “I don’t believe he’s a real cop.” When he was asking her questions about her night and where she was going so late, she started to freak out on him and telling him it’s none of his business and that she doesn’t have to answer to him. Her excuse was that she has freedom of speech and she doesn’t have to answer to anyone. “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character” (Martin Luther King Jr.). This is a motto I’ve always lived by, and I believe other should too. People shouldn’t be judged by the things people judge them on; like their skin color, race, religion,
