In Plessy v. Ferguson, the court decided that facilities can be separate as long as they are equal. They The court made a very narrow interpretation of the 14th amendment to the U. S. Constitution, section 1. The specific clause reads, "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States"
