You know what people care about most by what’s at the top of their to-do list, and on his very first day in office, Joe Biden signed something called an Executive Order on advancing racial equity and support for underserved communities. You ought to go read it. Go ahead and see if you can figure out what it means.
The document uses the term “equity” a total of 21 times and yet, revealingly never defines the word. So what is equity? Joe Biden never tells us, never even hints. He sort of proclaims that America will be getting, quote, “an ambitious whole of government equity agenda.”
So whatever it is, equity is ambitious, and it will be everywhere, but we’re not allowed to know what it is. That’s odd.
For three months, we’ve been trying to guess: what is this equity that is now our country’s main reason for existing? We know it’s not the same as equality or even closely related. In the name of equity, for example, the Biden administration supports open discrimination against Asian college applicants. They’re Asian, therefore they can’t get into school. It is that simple.
We used to call that kind of behavior, racism. We had laws against it. Now, we call it equity, and we have laws demanding it. It turns out that racism and equity are pretty much the same thing. Who knew?
