How tired is the whole "It's not fair" discussion?

Thomas Sowell:
"Fairness as equal treatment does not produce fairness as equal outcomes. The confusion between the two meanings of the same word has created enormous mischief, much of it at the expense of lagging groups, who have been distracted from the things that would enable them to catch up. And whole societies have been kept in a turmoil pursing a will o’ the wisp in the name of “fairness.”"

Like 12 year olds on the playground (or their idiot parents) we have taken it way too far. Bottom line: the so called "progressives" like to scream about having evolution taught in the schools; but they just don't think it should be practiced in real life......
