Bailey v. Patterson case contributes to the Civil Rights Movement and when the Civil
Rights Movement contributes to America being a better country today. We conclude
from the previous sentence that the case, Bailey v. Patterson, contributes to the good
America we have today. The Bailey v. Patterson case has many reasons America is the
America that exists today. One of the main reasons is that this case led to the
desegregation of interstate and intrastate transportation that might have seemed absurd
at the time, but not in the open minded American society we live in. In fact if a place
would ever be racially segregated today, it would seem very unusual and out of place.
Not only did some people in America become open minded, but also united. No one
should ever judge or care if your black, white, brown, or yellow as long as your human

As a result of the 7 to 1 vote, the ruling was legal segregation and as long the segregated facilities were “Separate but equal”. This decision was made because the justices said it was the right of each state to make rules to protect the public safety and segregated facilities would reflect Louisiana’s public.

Miller v. Alabama One decision can change an adult’s whole life. Should one decision also impact a child’s in the same way? In Miller v. Alabama, the Supreme Court had to determine if laws geared towards adults were constitutional if applied to minors.

This case, which concerned racial segregation laws for public facilities such as restrooms, restaurants, and water fountains, made its way all the way to the Supreme Court. As way of background, in 1890 Louisiana passed a law which required blacks and whites to ride in separate train cars. However, in 1892, Homer A. Plessy, who was a black man, boarded a car designated for whites only. He was asked to leave, but refused and was arrested immediately. In the case, Plessy vs Ferguson, Plessy’s position was that his rights were violated under the 13th and 14th amendments of the Constitution, which dictated equal treatment under the law.

Brown v. Board was a milestone in American History because it began racial integration, and overturned Plessy v. Ferguson. After Brown v. Board, the government could not support segregation because “Separate but equal” was not in effect. However, the most obvious and rewarding result of the case was the integration in public schools in the entire United States, even though the desegregation was a long process. The world we live in today is by far the opposite it has come a long way, it’s not perfect yet because colored people still get discriminated in one way or another

The escapees did not immediately turn themselves in, but did say that they did not do so because they were told, indirectly by who they claimed was the FBI, that they would be killed
