The gist there, as richanddeas is alluding to, is not about individuals and their strengths, weaknesses, physical, intellectual or otherwise, but about their rights--a direct response to laws in the Old World limiting land ownership, rank, privilege, etc., to only a predestined few.

Of course, as Peter Griffin says, even the "created equal" idea had a long way to go...

@ richanddead - way deeper than any of my shallow thoughts. I was just saying people aren't equal. There are people I am intellectually and morally superior to. There`s no way some of that trailer trash or ghetto trash is my equal!

But if a person doesn`t buy into we`re-all-equal then he has to acknowledge that there must also be someone superior to himself. - God save the Queen!

It never meant people are born entirely equal to another in status, form, or ability. He is saying the imperfections of one will never outweigh the advantages to such a point were it becomes impossible for the advantageous one to be truly safe, if a person truly willed something it would happen.

Therefore systems that depended on the pure subjugation of a society would be found unstable and given time I think we have seen that truth.

This gif is bashing our values, yet I think it's also highlighting the fact that all people tend to be more accepting of other people that are more like them before accepting a person of a different culture.
It was America imposing its "melting pot" value onto citizens with the constant need to integrate in new ways, sometimes even forcibly, that unfortunately has caused some periods of discontent in some. But its the American Value that has always sought an opportunity for all to compete that creates the change.
