Description

In America, an old theory is being given new life. “Equity” is being embraced wholesale by schools, corporate America, and the Biden Administration. It has infiltrated hiring, curriculum, admissions, trainings, and more. But “equity” is not the same thing as equality and delivers very different results. Rather than providing all individuals with equal opportunities to succeed, “equity” segregates individuals by race while driving a narrative of “oppressor” vs. “victim.” It calls for institutions to treat people unequally in order to achieve equal outcomes. Equity recklessly embraces legally prohibited classifications as a way to eliminate perceived differences in outcome, in violation of equal protection and federal law.
