Why not difference? Difference is the “general law of the world” the ontological law of what exists…when difference becomes a problem, “it is the becoming problematic of difference which is the problem, not difference itself,” for “the racist recognizes difference more than anybody,” the ‘recognition’ of difference is not ‘ethical difference’ which finds that “beyond all difference exists equality” – “to recognize equality in front of the reality of difference.”
