    Lightbulb Happy Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas Day!!!

    Happy Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas Day!!!
    Today is the anniversary of a very important legal decision in our country. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_...d_of_Education The Brown v. Board of Education case reversed Plessy v. Ferguson which held that "separate but equal" was legal. Handed down on May 17, 1954, the Warren Court's unanimous (90) decision stated that "separate educational facilities are inherently unequal." As a result, de jure racial segregation was ruled a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. This ruling paved the way for integration and was a major victory of the Civil Rights Movement,[2] and a model for many future impact litigation cases.[3] However, the decision's fourteen pages did not spell out any sort of method for ending racial segregation in schools, and the Court's second decision in Brown II (349 U.S. 294 (1955)) only ordered states to desegregate "with all deliberate speed".

    I don't think one can overstate the importance of the Brown decision regarding the civil rights movement. Not everyone accepted the Brown v. Board of Education decision. In Virginia, Senator Harry F. Byrd, Sr. organized the Massive Resistance movement that included the closing of schools rather than desegregating them.[44] See, for example, The Southern Manifesto. For more implications of the Brown decision, see School integration in the United States.

    Read the decision itself: https://supreme.justia.com/cases/fed.../483/case.html

    Integration and no segregation are not the same thing. The Court ruled against segregation not for integration.

    Deflection.

    Wasn't Brown the one where that ridiculous doll test was introduced?
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    It may had been used before, but it was used in Brown.

    A progressive moment that was not besmirched by the P word.
    " I'm old-fashioned. I like two sexes! And another thing, all of a sudden I don't like being married to what is known as a 'new woman'. I want a wife, not a competitor. Competitor! Competitor!" - Spencer Tracy in 'Adam's Rib' (1949)

    Art thou every retard among us related to thine uncle or mistress by way of moral or illegitimate rendezvous? Thus, we are one side of the other's coin by luck or pluck. - Jimmyz
