Equality vs. Fairness

Equal: regarding or affecting all objects in the same way. 
Fair: marked by impartiality and honesty : free from self-interest, prejudice, or favoritism. 

Pretty close synonyms right?

To treat people equally doesn’t mean you’re treating them fairly. You can treat people horribly and as long as you’re consistent, that’s equality. 

Fairness therefore, is a better goal, especially when some laws we have and themselves unfair.
