Of course we should all be the same. But we are not. Trying to ignore racism and homophobia doesn't make it go away.As much as I would love to see some kind of magical change in the world were all people are treated equally,I really do not believe it is going to happen any time soon. I am not saying one life is worth more than another one, not at all. But I think that the protected groups put up with so much more harassment (as a group) that it only makes sense to have laws in place to try to stop violence against them.
