What is the difference between Equality” and “Equity”?

From the Interaction Institute for Social Change,
“IISC has long believed that this image, illustrating the difference between equality and equity, is worth a thousand words. As a gift to the world of equity practitioners...”

This cute, seemingly innocent, cartoon with the words “Equality” and “Equity” underneath is a dangerously false analogy between these two words. The cartoon is being pushed by leftist to young students all over. This kind of political correctness gone wild has at the core a collectively evil, envious and destructive ideology, wrapped up in a veil of kindness.

    Where is the security guard protecting the intellectual property of the owners of the teams from theft by looters?
    The tallest (father, older brother?) should be working to earn tickets if it is his choice to entertain the smaller ones at the game. Meanwhile they can watch on tv or hear it on the radio at the cost of hearing ads to pay for that entertainment.
    There is no reality being shown in the images. There would be no game to watch under the "equity" or "equality" portrayed if extended to everyone by stealing the property of the owners of the teams. Stealing is not equity.

    Simply looking at something, like a sports game, requires no real effort or skill. Actually doing something, like throwing a basketball into a hoop, requires some effort and skill.

    I suggest a more appropriate cartoon:
    Equality is like a normal height basketball hoop, where the smallest person has a couple of boxes to stand on, and the medium size person has a box to stand on,and the tall person has no box to stand on. Now everyone has the equality of opportunity.
    Equity has to be forced. It is like a basketball hoop, that is lowered slightly, and the smallest person is allowed to stand on their own, the medium size person has their legs cut off at the kneecaps, and the tall person has their legs completely cut off. Now everyone has, more historically, equality of outcome.
