In other words, if the constitution doesn 't prohibit something, the court can 't prohibit it. There was no amendment for slavery since the United States was split geographically on their views. Basically, the Supreme Court couldn 't outlaw slavery in US territories. Also, Taney stated that slaveholders could take their slaves anywhere in the United States since they
In the Plessy vs Ferguson case in 1896, a law was passed that allowed racial segregation as long as the facilities were equal in black and white schools. A single suit was brought together to be taken to the Supreme Court in 1954 to argue the fact that black schooling was evidently under resourced and of a far lower quality than that of white schooling, proving them to be inferior and unequal. In the case of Brown vs Board of Education of Topeka, the segregation of school facilities was overturned. Although segregated school was now deemed illegal, certain people did not comply with the ruling. In Little Rock, Arkansas (1957), nine black students were accompanied by state troops to their first day at Central High School, a previously all-white institution.
In 1892, in Louisiana, a man who was one- eight black, Homer Plessy agreed with a group of Africa American take part in the test the constitutionality of Louisiana about the law which known as the Separate Car Act. Plessy bought a first- class ticked and board on the car for white people only in New Orleans. Also, Plessy refused to seat in the car for Africa- American which the state law required, so he was arrested and brought to court.

In August of 1963, thousands and thousands of people stood at the Lincoln Memorial to listen to King's
The author presents this idea through irony, setting, and characterization. This book gets its point of how injustice blacks were through irony because in court you are supposed to have a fair trial. However, in the Tom Robertson case it is a social rule to always believe a white man over a black man. Atticus states “Our courts have their faults, as does any human institution, but in this country our courts are the great levelers, in our courts all men are created equal.” (205) this supports by showing people like to think Tom Robertson was given a fair trial but you can’t call it a reasonable trial with all white men as the jury and the amount of inequality against blacks during this time. It’s ironic and it’s especially not what we call justice.
The Court said that a state law that “implies merely a legal distinction” between the two races did not conflict Fisher 4 with the 13th Amendment abolishing involuntary servitude by a seven to one vote (“Plessy v. Ferguson” par. 3) . The Court avoided discussing the protection granted by the clause in the 14th Amendment that prohibits the states to make laws depriving citizens of their “privileges or immunities . ” The Court said that the purpose of the 14th Amendment was “to enforce the absolute equality of the two races before the law… Laws … requiring their separation … do not necessarily imply the inferiority of either race (“Plessy v. Ferguson” par. 4).” In my opinion, I do not agree with the majority ruling . If I lived in the time period when segregation was prevalent, I most likely would have agreed with the ruling. Blacks and whites were separated at the time, so many people were adapted them not being allowed to intertwine . Today, I believe that we are all created equally, and that we should not be judged by the color of our skin. The Plessy v . Ferguson case started the “separate but equal” statement, and it lasted for decades.
This really shows how Apartheid didn’t just affect the black South Africans but also the white South Africans who are now feeling ‘attacked’, political parties use skin color as the basis to attack others, those who are being attacked are the black South Africans. Skin color also creates a divide in employment rates. According to The Global Education Magazine there is a big problem with labor rates, especially with the black South Africans. 36.8% of the black South African population between the ages of 15 and 64 employed whereas the white South Africans have 63.2% of their population employed (South). Decisions and ideas based on skin color and racism is another problem that is preventing South Africa from achieving Nelson Mandela’s
Broad education. Its decision created an atmosphere of confidence among black families who were worrying about the future of their loved children in the public education sector. The chief justice of the United State Supreme Court Mr. Earl Warren was clear about why the court voted for terminating segregation in the public schools. He stated, “Segregation of children in public schools solely on the basis of race deprives children of the minority group of equal educational opportunities, even though the physical facilities and other ‘tangible’ factors may be equal. The ‘separate but equal’ doctrine adopted in Plessy v. Ferguson has no place in the field of public education.” The court decision was a pivotal decision in the field of civil rights.
In New Orleans there was a mob lynching in response to a shootout between officers Mora and Cantrelle along with two black men, Robert Charles and Leonard Pierce (Green and Gabbidon, 2000). Wells Barnett stated Charles and Pierce were victims of police brutality (Green and Gabbidon, 2000). Charles killed Officer Mora and Pierce was shot and taken into custody. Charles was a wanted man for fleeing the scene and that was when the lynch mob formed in New Orleans (Green and Gabbidon, 2000). It was a four day man-hunt before Charles was spotted and shot multiple times.
The Supreme Court ruled in their favor stating, "segregation of white and colored children in public schools has a detrimental effect upon the colored children. The impact is greater when it has the sanction of the law; for the policy of separating the races is usually interpreted as denoting the inferiority of the Negro group." However this decision did not suppress the racist ideals of Americans but in fact worsened them. In deep southern states, massive resistance against the new law erupted in protests, riots, and racial violence against the strive for equality. Some public schools even closed their doors rather than integrate and even reacted with
Life for African Americans some what changed for the better, temporarily. Slavery was Abolished in the south, but that didn 't really mean that the blacks were equal or really free. Constitutional additions specifically the 13th amendment which stated, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction” the 14th amendment which stated, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside”, and the 15th amendment which stated, “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude” (United States Constitution). But blacks encountered crippling complications. During the reconstruction Blacks encountered severe white incrimination and several instances of out right violence “a Freedman living on the plantation of James W. Wade in Fort Bend Co. was arrested, chained and whipped by the wades and others” (Records of the Assistant Commissioner for the State of Texas).
Jim Crow Laws made African Americans and Caucasians “equal”, but “separate.” Jim Crow Laws did uphold to the” separate” part of the laws, but the “equal” part was not true. Racial segregation is born. Racial segregation could be found in all public establishments in the south between the years of 1877- 1960s. Jim Crow Laws allowed Caucasian owned establishments to segregate without punishment. A few examples of Jim Crow Laws are “all marriages between a white person and a negro are forever prohibited and shall be illegal and void; no colored person shall serve as a barber to white women or girls; every employer of white or negro males shall provide separate toilet facilities; it shall be unlawful to conduct a restaurant or other place for the serving of food in the city, at which white and colored people are served in the same room; and the county shall provide schools of two kinds; those for white children and those for colored children.” In most southern states the only public swimming pool was a “whites only” pool, and for this reason many African American children did not learn how to swim.
