Inequality means being treated unfairly to others through no fault of your own! You can be treated unfairly by anybody, whether that be the police, society, parents, family or another figure of authority. I feel that a lot of inequality comes down to issues of stereotyping, prejudice and hierachies that people feel they belong to in society!
Inequality means being so biased on my values of life not respecting what i say and believe in
Have you had an experience of people being biased to you and not respecting you Solomon?
so many times…..
What has happened?
Some people have not believed my experience undermind me and opportunities not given to express who am i
Inequality is when somebody’s values, customs, culture and judgements are seen to be more superior than another person’s values, customs, culture and judgements. If somebody has done something unlawful, that is completely against the law in their country, and is seen immorally wrong, then they will be in an unequal position facing the law. This is not inequality for me, people cannot just do as they please. What is inequality is where people do not have the same chances, and did not start on an unequal footing, and therefore do not have the same opportunites. Everybody deserves a right to education, clean water, a good standard of living, and access to the job market. If they do not, I think they are being treated unfairly and unequally!
I don’t think it’s having someone’s customs and cultures seen as being more superior is unequal. English being the universal lingua franca means that everybody needs to know English, so then this could be seen as being superior and therefore not equal to other languages. I just think that English has become the practical way of communcation, I don’t think it’s superior to my home language!
Being treated unfairly by positions of authority in society is what inequality means to me! This may be because of your skin colour, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, something that is not considered the norm! This is not acceptable, and being treated unfairly and not the way you want to be treated is inequality!
To me, inequality is the unfair treatment of people and labeling them inferior due to circumstances that they have little or no control of in their lives, which makes it so much harder for them to ’go up in life’ and be seen as equal. Inequality boils down to prejudice.
Unequal opportunities given to different people dependent on certain characteristics such as social class, gender, sex etc.
Inequality is unbalanced opportunites for people to access to necessary human activities (e.g. educations, careers, and so on), which have been created both naturally and artificially.
