"Equality"?

From KYW:

Crawley’s complaint, he later told reporters, was the mayor’s vendor plan for the Live 8 concert:

"If you’re celebrating African economic equity, and you don’t want to include African-Americans in that economic equity, it looks a bit hypocritical."

All Live 8 vendors will have to pay fees ranging from $750 to $1,500. Crawley says that’s too much for his members, who sell things like t-shirts and incense.


Have we abandoned any pretense of meaning in the word "equality"? Having a set price for all people is not "equal" enough?

This word, "equal." I do no think it means what you think it means.
