    Jim Crow laws developed at the end of Reconstruction (1877). It was the south's way to disagree w/ emancipation. Plessy v. Ferguson was a landmark 1896 U.S. Supreme Court decision that upheld the constitutionality of racial segregation under the “separate but equal” doctrine. In 1954, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously in Brown v. Board of Education that “separate but equal” was unconstitutional under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

    Segregation exists because of the behavior of black people.   No one wants to live in black neighborhoods unless you want to be robbed, mugged, raped, shot or murdered and watch the whole place burn to the ground.  Even successful blacks don't live in black neighborhoods.  So all you white social justice warrior libs just shut your pie hole.  Sell your gated home in the burbs or move out of your mothers basement, grab your bullet proof vests and move to a large city like Chicago or LA and just move right into the black community.  Raise your children there.  Leave your wife home alone there, have an evening stroll through the local park.  Enjoy.
