Everywhere we see those that describe social inequality as the natural state of existence in this world to the point of embracement yet those same people put in unfavorable odds of being endangered by others are the first to reach for their phones to call the police or established intervening authority on their behalf when they feel threatened defaming their attackers verbally by a variety of words describing them by that which they call immoral for their perceived social injustices bestowed against them inequally.

Can you see the contradiction?

It seems such people pick or choose when social inequality benefits them and when it does not leaving in alot of room for contradictions.

No, I can't see any contradiction. This is on the level of "we all bleed red" arguments for racial egalitarianism. Yes, we all call for assistance when in danger; we do that because we aren't suicidal. This does not mean we do not differ in natural aptitudes and tendencies.
