    Why do you believe that? Equality is a social concept not a capital concept under our form of Capitalism.

    Simple. One can of course be as racist or as prejudiced as they want...but they presently have no right to conduct themselves in such a way that other people are affected by that racism or prejudice. If we pass a law allowing people to conduct themselves in such a way that other people are affected by that racism or prejudice, such will eventually become an accepted part of the social fabric.

    Do we really want to go there?

    People are perfectly free to conduct themselves as racists, even to the point of affecting others, so long as they don't engage in conduct proscribed by law. A group of white women, for example, are free to organize a club that only accepts white women as members.

    If it is a private club, that's perfectly true. But you know as well as I do that such discrimination is not allowable in normal businesses open to the public.

    Interesting. So why are you IRS worshippers constantly barking about the rich not paying enough in taxes? If it's not under the flag of equality, then what is it?

    They can only pay too much in income taxes if we raise taxes on them even after solving official poverty.
