1896 US Supreme Court case which established the separate but equal clause.
Homer Plessy was arrested in Louisiana for boarding and refusing to leave a whites only railway car
of course, must colored public facilities were vastly subpar to the white facilities.
The Supreme Court ruled that races could be separated into separate railway cars, restrooms, restaurants, schools etc. as long as both white and colored.
A big portion of the 20th century civil rights movement is to abolish Plessy V. Ferguson (segregation)
The object of the Fourteenth Amendment was undoubtedly to enforce the absolute equality of the two races before the law, but 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 upon terms unsatisfactory to either.
