I feel you...

I'm just trying to understand what people are saying when they talk about "fighting for equality".

Personally, if I'm fighting, I'm trying to knock a cat on his ass. I don't want to be "equal" to him. In fact, my objective is to completely destroy his urge to do me bodily harm -by any means necessary! If you're fighting someone to be equal to that someone, your probably fighting a losing battle. You might gain some level of respect, but it doesn't mean you'll be provided for.

My idea of revolution is self-empowerment. Empowerment includes the ability to provide for self. I'm not trying to be equal to anybody.
