Equality is needed because we are concerned about injustice and each others obvious differences and freedom is needed we don't like feeling like we're being trapped or controlled. They're ideals, nothing more, something to strive for so that we don't fall into chaos.

In reality we are all different in some way, and we are all bound by some law, whether by government or nature.

So this is what these words mean to me (in social context).

Equality - Equal rights and opportunity for all (regardless of race, gender, class etc.) A standard upon which people are "persuaded" not be arrogant and feel superior.

Freedom - Having enough choice and space to be happy.

So, in reality, we are not all equal (literally) and we can never really be free (literally). This might sound negative and depressing but it's not really, it's just a part of life.

Caucasian actually just means you are of European descent. All white people come from Europe, and that's a fact
