The full enchilada on the looking-over-the-fence meme

leave a comment »

Image shows four situations of 3 boys — 1 tall, 1 average height, 1 short — trying to look over the fence at a baseball game. 

Reality: Tallest boy stands on a big stack of boxes with an super view of the field, average boy stand on one box and can see the game, short boy stands in a hole and sees only the fence.

Equality: All three boys stand on one box. Tall boy's head is high above fence, average boy's head is just above fence, and short boy on box still can see only the fence. 

Equity: Tall boy stands on the ground and can see over the fence, average boy stands on one box and can see over the fence, and short boy stands on two boxes and can see over the fence.

Justice: The fence is gone, and all can watch the game unaided.
