As more and more schools adopt critical race theory and anti-racism into their curriculums, and as progressive organizations get more shrewd, you’ll notice a lot of talk about “equity,” such as mandatory sessions on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).

A cartoon that’s going around shows the difference between equality and equity. See, under equality, the two children are given the same tool, but the outcome isn’t fair. Equity improves things a lot by providing custom tools to make up for the inequality. Justice fixes the whole system so that custom tools aren’t necessary.
