I believe that racial and social equality is not impossible but not likely to happen anytime soon. I also believe that equality can be improved among all. It is apart of human nature to see oneself as better than another. We don"t look beyond our skin tone but rather we see the different color and automatically characterize them. For example we stereotype men to be big and strong, who have to do all of the work, and women as property of men who do all the cooking and cleaning. Even though there are people who break those basic stereotypes we never can get pass them completely; we are all victims of culture. Human nature plays a great role in the factor of true racial and social equality. "Humans are constantly sorting the world into categories, predicting how things work, and testing those predictions." ( "Human Nature: Six Things We All Do") It"s our way of life, we sort things into what they fit in with and it's just our nature.

This assumes we have not already achieved equality.
