If you see equality as threatening to your way of life, you are part of the problem. The only people who should be threatened are those who have become so accustomed to having dominance over someone else, setting themselves above another person; using some trivial detail to justify your dominance. If you truly believe that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" than I don't want to see you looking down upon anyone. Unfortunately, that is not where we as a society are, we are such hypocrites. America, championed as being land of the free, is becoming (and debatably has been for some time) anything but. It seems however, we have stopped trying to pretend at this point, hate is openly being spewed, violent threats flying with american flags. This is not the land of the free, this is not equality. There is a war going on for your mind, where facts entwine with fiction; we are no longer united, we are the Divided States of America, we are being intentionally separated, to keep the arguing between ourselves rather than looking for the truth.
