America is inherently unfair. It’s supposed to be. America is inherently unequal. It’s supposed to be. Your ‘equal opportunity’ came to fruition the day God allowed you to be born. Since then, it has been entirely up to you. ‘Equal’ does not mean ‘equitable’. There is a distinct difference between the two. The great conundrum of living in a free society is that the person next to you is free to be more assertive, more gifted, more intelligent and more creative than you. Likewise, you are equally as free to try and close that gap – or not. The choice is yours.” – Darrell B. Harrison, June 4, 2012
