Do we have equal rights? Yes.
Do we have equal treatment under the legal system? No.
Do we have equal opportunities? Probably not.
Does discrimination still have an impact on the life of minorities? Often yes.
It has a lot of aspects.
Josak - For the first time in history, I completely agree with your comment.
No, the corporate race has far more benefits than the human race!
Of course not. The black race, for instance, has a much higher rate of sickle cell anemia, for instance, and there are hundreds, if not thousands, more examples.
We are not interbred anywhere near far enough for there to be racial equality. It's rather like asking if men and women are "equal" somehow.
Eh.....I don't think that was the question.
Racial equality has nothing to do with difference in disease susceptibility.......
No, probably not. The most likely intent is a discussion of social inequality, but any rational person will recognize that every local minority is discriminated against. Whether Innuits, Native American Indians, Hispanic, White or other minority by religion (non-mormon in my area), sex or anything else.
Mankind has a nasty habit of considering the individual person to be better than those around him; to do that he needs a scapegoat, someone to be better than. And that means the local minority. Whether the discrimination is overt, violent or kept inside in thoughts only, the minority is almost always discriminated against.
