I can kinda see where you're coming from, but I think there's a misunderstanding somewhere along the lines. Personally, I'm not trying to flash anything. I don't think I'm better than anyone else, and I like to make friends with everybody - regardless of status, age, gender. The main reason for the color or title for mods or admins is so that people know who to go to if they need help. I would equate it to the real world; what would we do if there we didn't know who to go to? If we didn't know who the police or firefighters were? It would cause a lot of disorganization. Quite obviously, this is an internet forum and disorganization on a forum is nowhere near as bad as lawlessness in the real world, but I hope you see what I was getting at.
