Social Justice versus Equal Justice
imagine a race , a very basic a high school running track. Equal justice means everyone has the same starting line. Social justice means everyone has the same finish line.
Equal justice gives equal opportunity. Social justice is where the opportunity is manipulated by the government to give the desired outcome.

Social justice is bias, considerations are given if you're rich, poor, man , woman , black, white etc.
