    It stated that racial segregation was acceptable as long as separate but equal facilities were provided. In Brown v Board of Education that overruled Plessy v. Ferguson the Supremes ruled that separate facilities were never equal and they weren't, by any measure.

    it ruled segregation was legal if the same facilities were provided for both blacks and whites
