TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): So, what is "equity?" Joe Biden never tells us, never even hints. His order proclaims that America will be getting, quote, "an ambitious, whole of government equity agenda." So, whatever it is, "equity" is "ambitious," and it will be everywhere, but we're not allowed to know what it is. That's odd.

For three months, we've been trying to guess -- what is this "equity" that is now our country's main reason for existing? We know it's not the same as equality, or even closely related. 

In the name of equity, for example, the Biden administration supports open discrimination against Asian college applicants. They're Asian, therefore, they can't get into school. It's that simple. 

We used to call that kind of behavior racism, we had laws against it. Now we call it "equity" and we have laws demanding it. It turns out that racism and equity are pretty much the same thing. Who knew?
