Today is Blog Action Day. Join bloggers from around the world and write a post about what inequality means to you. Have you ever encountered it in your daily life?
To me, inequality means:
*Not having decent health care when you need to use it.
*Work your ass off, and still cannot earn a decent living wage.
*Special Interest Groups that “buy” and “own” candidates, (Congressman/Congresswoman once elected) .
*No access to clean air, water, or a doctor.
*Substandard Education (which is the result of cuts in the budgets, among other reasons).
*Not being allowed the opportunity to express dissent; especially if you do not share or agree with the view of the other individual. Instead, you are made to feel different, inferior.
*Not being offered opportunities to better yourself (job wise and/or education wise, since they pretty much go hand in hand), for reasons other than not being qualified.
*Special Interest Groups that has Congress’ ears more so than the people who they are suppose to be representing.
*Not having access to fresh fruits and vegetables, much less able to afford them.
*Being denied the right to vote because of some stupid ass law(s) that have recently been “put in place”
*Age Discrimination, Sexism, Racism, all those negative ass “isms”
There are a lot more inequalities out there, but this what I came up with.
Let’s hear yours.
