If people succeeded solely based on merit, would there be a perfectly equal distribution of successful people across race, gender, religion, etc, or would some groups be more successful than others?
Of course it would not be equal. Look at current society. Different groups have different cultures.
Hence, participation awards and the entitlement culture of the progressives
No. There are biological differences across different races and between men and women. People are affected by their ideologies, so their will be differences in group averages across religions. Everyone should have equal opportunities to succeed, but we need to accept that there will be different average outcomes between different groups.
Perfect? No....but darn close
Nothing, about life is equal !
Grammar, is not, a good thing ?!
Too tired to care
