  1. And we still continue have a racist issue in this country whites love to hate but those who are hated continue to sit around and trust THEM for a change of heart. The race situation will never change in the USA unless stringent laws are created for racist. I believe in liberty but there are alot of flaws in being liberated it allows the hate to continue.

  2. I wonder how many of the commenters know anything about who Homer A. Plessy was? It was an awful US Supreme Court decision. Decided May, 1986 Subsequently overturned by Brown v. Board of Education, 347 U.S. 483 (1954), and subsequent rulings. Plessy v. Ferguson. As per Wiki,:”The case began in 1892 when Homer Plessy, a mixed-race resident of New Orleans, deliberately violated Louisiana's Separate Car Act of 1890, which required "equal, but separate" railroad accommodations for white and non-white passengers. Plessy was charged with boarding a "whites-only" car, and his lawyers defended him at trial by arguing that the law was unconstitutional. Plessy lost at trial, and the conviction was sustained by the Louisiana Supreme Court. He then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court” and that Court invented the “separate but equal” concept for half of the 20th century.

  3. Really did pardon H.Plessy??? Like he committed a crime or offense?..what he should do was declare that law abolish, nule, as every human being is equal and free-I do understand the time frame when that "law was law" as when Hitler laws was laws…we should correct our past not pardon the victims of these kind of laws
