United States Constitution

Our constitution guarantees us equal opportunity. It does not guarantee equal outcomes.

Thomas Sowell makes the point clear.

As a teenager, I briefly tried to play basketball. But I was lucky to hit the backboard, much less the basket. Yet I had just as much opportunity to play basketball as Michael Jordan had. But equal opportunity was not nearly enough to create equal outcomes.
