2 years after the Brown's won their case and the court demanded schools to be desegregated...
I believe, along with 101 of the South's congressional members, that the Court's Brown vs Board of Education decision was an unwarranted exercise of power.
We disagree with the decision to desegregate schools and the arguments that the Brown's brought to court. To begin, segregation of schools does not impeach on 14th Amendment rights. In fact, the 14th Amendment doesn't even mention education, and it does not provide legal justification for school desegregation. Second, I blame the supreme court for destroying the relations between colored and white in the south. It was the Supreme Court, not the south that treated African Americans unfairly.
All those who signed the Manifesto, including myself, pledge to use lawful means to seek reversal of the court's decision to desegregate schools.
