By the ruling of the court... Homer Plessy you are Guilty!
This is completly Unconstitutional!
Off To (Supreme) Court
In 1892, a man named Homer Plessy sat in the white area of a train. he looked white so no one said anything. Plessy then announced that he was a black. Whites told him to go to the black area but he refused. he was then put in jail overnight
You guys are crazy!
Plessy was convicted by Judge John H. Ferguson in a New Orleans court for violating the 1890 law.
The Unforunate Consequences
Plessy then filed at petition against Judge Ferguson claiming that the law violated the 14th Amendment

The Supreme Court decided that what Ferguson did was actually constitutional (with only one judge disagreeing)
