The law does not apply equally to everyone, there are many cases of racial discrimination in the law that have recently been in the news, particularly against minorities. The law does not apply equally because they are being wrongly imprisoned and the law does not apply equally to those who have power (like the police) because they are not receiving consequences for their actions.

I have to disagree with you.
The law was created to protect everybodies freedom from hate, war, and violence. Most of these laws are fair and reasonable and should be upheld.
O do agree that the way these laws are protected and how sometimes, these laws are interpreted and how they are used or not used to harm people due to race, sex, sexual orientation. The problem is not the laws themselves, but the system and how it carries out the protection of these laws. The American system is built against the very people it was built to protect, but this is not due to the laws themselves, but due to how these law are used.
