The monopoly man removed the 'al' from Equality, turning it into 'Equity' which is a monetary term.

Art is an arbitrary term, and some graffiti is indeed art. But all graffiti is graffiti, and in some places, graffiti is illegal. Make yer dahm art someplace else, ya bastards

And by Graffiti, i don't mean Tagging, like those badly scrabbled penises and badly spelled curse words. i mean real Graffiti.
Graffiti is street art.
Badly Scribbled penises, signatures or curses is Tagging, and that's vandalism.

...its only my two cents

Ah, i was agreeing with you until you posted this. If you were a real graffiti writer youd be able to appreciate all levels of graffiti, not just the burners/pieces/ and murals which is what the general public likes. Handstyles/throw ups take a certain degree of skill as well. You're simply generalizing the toy graffiti.

Alright everyone calm the **** down. I actually do this **** and it is both. This argument is so worn out. Graffiti is a ******* crime (one that i can personally/morally justify) as well as an art. And bitch about tagging all you want but it is the very basis and essence of graffiti. Its what started modern day graffiti. With out writers tagging their names every where, you wouldn't have the huge vibrant paintings on walls. Its an evolutionary process that take most people years to develop their own style, but it all started with that tag.

And all this "buy your own wall" ******** below.....No

Your two cents are practically identical to my currency of choice. That is why only some graffiti is art, but too often they place them illegally and it is therefor justified to cover it up, as it is illegal and a bother to some

Ok some are really crappy and/or made without permission, but than again some black guys are dealing dope and stealing bikes. We shouldn't stereotype so much. I think graffiti, the real graffiti is a cool thing. P.S I don't think that spraying ******** on walls as seen on picture above your post, counts as graffiti, that is vandalism

couldn't disagree with you more sir.
Graffiti is often used to spice up somethings that is otherwise grey and dull. to make more life where there is none.
i get that Graffiti is not appreciated everywhere, but most Artist sticks to Urban industry areas and train lines.
in my eyes, graffiti makes train rides more fun really...
instead of a grey dull wall, you get art to appreciate when you sit there staring meaningless out of the window.

I can agree with your argument, it does make things better looking. But personally I think my neighbors house would look better with a cream rendering instead of grey, but I don't go over and paint their house for them without asking.

But, graffiti as an art is almost never done without request. The common "gangster" graffiti is vandalism, but most of the times artistic grafittis are done with the consent of whoever is the owner of the wall

i learned about this a long time ago, so forgive me if im wrong.
equality = everyone gets the same treatment
equity = kinda the same thing with the addition of righting historical wrongs. equity also acknowledges that some people have to overcome boundaries to access resources and opportunities.

as a very broad example, let's say there's a small town with 10 people in it. 3 of the families are rich, 3 are middle class, and 4 poor.

the government gives each family 10 chickens. that's equality. everyone gets the same amount of chickens regardless of their background.

but the rich families have their own chickens, and don't need anymore because theyre ******* rich. the middle class families could use some chickens, but maybe they only need 5 or so. the poor families of the town, however, could really use the chickens to create a sustainable income. the government gives no chickens to the rich families, 5 chickens to each middle class family, and 20 chickens to each poor family.
that's equity c:

Equity refers to ownership. It is the percent of a thing you own versus the percent the lender owns.
Example: Sweat Equity; Sweat Equity is an interest or increased value in a property earned from labor toward upkeep or restoration. The term is used to describe the value added to real estate by owners who make improvements by their own toil.

That is a wikipedia definition but
it is accurate.

No, equity means you get paid what you're worth.
A doctor gets paid more than a Mcdonalds worker.

"equity also acknowledges that some people have to overcome boundaries to access resources and opportunities. "

College, degrees, and then getting the job as a doctor. So he was never wrong, just gave a bad example.
His definition and you're example.
However, it kind of discriminates against age if you think about it...

I'm afraid to look down in the comments to see all the socialist 14 year olds and old breed capitalists arguing with each other. Can someone tell me if this is going on or not so I can decide whether or not to venture into the deep and dark depths of the epidemic we know today as political discourse?

I'm an atheist and even I'll tell you how much human nature is evil and selfish.
Just because a group of hippies shares everything they own doesn't make human nature kind and giving

I thought that because tribes are primarily communistic that humans are naturally kind and share with one another, which contradicts a lot of religions ideas that humans are naturally evil

look in history. humans are, by our very nature, scared of things that are different. like, the holocaust for example. the nazies saw something wrong with the people they killed, that's why they killed them. That is the first instinct to survival. if something is different and we don't understand it, instinctively, we try to get rid of it. we would hate it. but sometimes, some people can overcome their basic instincts, and accept the world for all it is. give up the evil that is in their most primal instincts. there are many people that do it, yes, but there are many that can't, either.these tribes you're talking about, they managed to over come the greed that we all have. that's another thing as well, when we have something we like, we don't really want to give it up. but these are just instincts, and instincts can be overcome just like any of them because we are so far advanced with the mind, we can overlook our instincts better than most other animals. we may think ourselves better than them, but we are all animals. We all have impulses to do things, things that, given thought, aren't very nice. you see someone that you ******* hate, for example, you might want to beat the **** out of them, but when you think about it, you realize this is not a good idea. because humans have a bit more intelligence, we can think past our primal instincts, we can overcome these violent impulses, we can, sometimes, suppress our instincts all together, thus overcoming the evil, inborn nature that we all have.

but how do you know that we aren't good natured and then our reason and conditioning from our environments leads us to want and be violent. Tribes are the most natural beings as they are the first humans and they live in our natural habitat, yet most of these natural human beings are communistic and share. If it was in their nature to be selfish, then why aren't they selfish? there was one high up member of a tribe once which tried to steal the communities food and he said how he was important and so he deserves more food, but the tribe excluded him.

You have not presented how you know that the human instinct is to do evil. I am not talking about any tribes in particular I read in a psychology book about "primitive communism" in tribes. This tribe particularly interests me though.
