Storyboard Text

  • Plessy: I am exhausted, Let me just take a seat real quick
  • You are under arrest for sitting in a white only seat
  • Whites Only
  • You're Still Black
  • This is an unconstitutional infringement on both the privileges and immunities and the equal protection clauses of my Fourteenth Amendment, I am 7/8 caucasian
  • This is violating the Equal Protection Clause Of the Fourteenth Amendment
  • Louisiana Supreme Court
  • The Fourteenth Amendment was to create "absolute equality of the two races before the law" so your wrong because it does not have to do with your social life
  • Louisiana Supreme Court
  • Ferguson
  • Dang!
  • The Ruling is against Plessy and rejects his idea that the law "Stigmatizes black, and create cause for inequality
  • Justice Brown conceded that the 14th Amendment intended to establish absolute equality for the races before the law. But Brown noted that "in the nature of things it could not have been intended to abolish distinctions based upon color, or to enforce social, as distinguished from political equality, or a commingling of the two races unsatisfactory to either." In short, segregation does not in itself constitute unlawful discrimination.
