Many people say that to achieve equality we need to pretend race or other differences don’t exist. This is the wrong way to approach things because to deny or mock someone’s race, disability, heritage, sexual orientation, and gender is asinine. The best way to coexist is to acknowledge that we are all different in our own way, but we all have the same basic desires as human beings; to be loved, accepted, and live happy lives. We are all different in our own way, but at some point we all feel the same. That is how we can achieve harmony in our lifetime.
