Racists HATE equality. it might seem to be a cheap shot to make fun of racists in 2010, but seriously fuck these people.
Unlike 半, the top of 平 is flat, or level, and it means 'level.' So, that's how you remember it.

it's ok with me. Usually phrased as a question, as in, 平気？ "Is that ok with you?" This is only used by young people - more often young women.
impartial, even-steven. (to cut the cake into equal pieces, to treat your adopted kids and your biological kids equally)
|平||equal / level||top is LEVEL|
only 半 （half) has a litle 'head' poking up. So say to yourself, The samurai cuts your head in HALF.
There IS no head poking up the top of "level." . . I guess you could say the top is LEVEL.
