From Encyclopedia of Race and Racism
Social justice generally refers to the pursuit of and realization of political, legal, economic, and social equality among peoples. Embedded in a sense of equality are notions of fairness (equal opportunity) and respect (equal dignity), though emphasis on equality of opportunity or outcomes differs by context. While few would reject the desirability of social justice outright, there is considerable variation regarding the domains of social life in which equality should exist and the level of society in which equality should be embedded, as well as the amount of inequality tolerable in order for social justice to be present and the paths to take to engender and maintain the presence of social justice.
