      [87]        To comply with the Enabling Act, the Convention had to defer to the Declaration of Independence, and in so doing recognized certain self-evident truths: "that all men are created equal; that they are endowed with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men . . ." (Emphasis supplied.)

                      Some pertinent observations evolve from the quoted portion of the declaration. It would appear that accidental differences arising from the presence or absence of pigment in the skin does not affect equality. The word "among" in context signifies that basic rights other than those mentioned exist. And among such unenumerated rights would be the right of enjoying political, social and legal equality, particularly as such equality would safeguard the dignity of the human person. To secure these "endowed" rights, whether enumerated or not, governments are brought into being. Colorado Anti-Discrimination Commission v. J. L. Case, 1962.CO.40009 <http://www.versuslaw.com>¶ 87; 380 P.2d 34 (Colo. 1962) Mr. Justice Frantz specially concurring.
