You finally got something straight. Yes, a benefit that is afforded one group of people to the exclusion of another based on race, religion, gender, ethnicity, sexual-orientation, or disability is illegal discimination, and therefore oppression.

Well, Westerners call the Moon "Luna", "Serena" or "Artemis" (personally, "Artemis" is my favorite Western name for the Moon). I'd like to hear what various Africans, Aboriginees, Egyptians, Mesoamericans and Asians called it. The Western name for the Sun is "Sol" (that's the root word in "solar").
