Equal Results

“In the beginning, the basic idea of civil rights was equality under the law, and, flowing from this, equality of opportunity. This meant that an individual was to be judged in terms of his personal qualifications or abilities, without regard for his race or sex. With interpretations by federal bureaucracies and courts leading the way, the development of “affirmative action” changed all this. The government began to require that individuals be judged specifically with regard to their race or sex, and that they be given preferential treatment in order to achieve a proportional “balance” in their fields. In other words, equality of opportunity has been abandoned for equality of result.”
