It probably has something to do with these words.

Inspiring words which should always be kept in mind but those are from the Declaration of Independence and not the Constitution. Sadly, our Constitution did not live up to these fine words as it tolerated slavery and contained other vestiges of inequality. The Constitution was a document intended for practical application where the Declaration of Independence was intended to explain the inspiration for our break away from England.
