Kymone Freeman, # Black Lives Matter DC, was on Thom Hartmann’s show this morning; he was talking about equality and equity and the difference between them. He mentioned a cartoon that was a great visual of the difference. I found the cartoon and it does explain the difference.
I had previously thought equality and equity meant basically the same thing.
Equality= Sameness Equity = Fairness
