can someone please help me reword this its brown v board of edu worth 10 pts?

Supporters of desegregation, as sought should in Brown, argued that segregated schools defied the 14th Amendment because separate accommodations based on race could never be "equal." Those supporters believed that the court interpret the Constitution in a way that upheld true equality in American race relations. They cited the states' inability to address racial issues as the reason why the federal courts should intervene in such matters. Proponents also claimed that by essentially insisting that black children were inferior, segregated schools harmed the psychological well-being of those students.

    In the Landmark Case Brown v. Board of Education, NAACP Counsel Thurogood Marshall was able to make a coherent argument to The U.S. Supreme Court that hinged on the 14th Amendment which articulates that separate accommodations based on race could never be "equal".. Previously, law enforcement and local governments enforced the notion that separate based on race could be equal. It was the segregationists belief that the framers of our Constitution intended separate but equal as an equitable construct for it's citizenry.

    The vector of history proved otherwise. The States have long argued against Federal Government incursion into States Rights, it's roots were grounded in the Civil War. However, racial issues went from a simmer to a full broil in the South, which forced the Federal Courts to intervene in such matters. Racist's claims on the life chances of children in abject poverty brought into focus a portable inferiority to separate and unequal segregated schools; placing further risk to the psychological well being of the students who lived in separate an unequal circumstance.
