No, as you think they wish it and not what the term actually means. There is a real difference.I am describing social justice as it's proponents wish it enacted. If you do not like the ugliness of that reality, perhaps you should reconsider your support for the term, or at least make clear your intention to capture it to serve another purpose of your own making.
No real preference can be given under the law. No quotas. No one not qualified. The law simply says you can't discriminate due to race and asks that you show you didn't. There is no evidence Asians or Whites are trod on (this is where you bring up another inaccurate source I'd guess ).On the contrary, to give preference to someone for a limited resource (jobs, school slots, promotions) based on their race is indeed to hold others back based on their race. AA absolutely trods on Asian and White students, which is why they sue over the matter.
