     Conservatives like to posit that they are for equality of opportunity not equality of outcome. But they do so without ever admitting that both the federal and state governments have made extensive efforts throughout American history up to the present time to restrict both opportunity and outcome and without admitting that they oppose taking ANY steps to rectify those restrictions which have more than greatly influenced the current outcomes. Instead they frame those efforts at justice as handouts to undeserving people, as if everything America has wasn't first taken from someone else.
