Americans generally think of segregation as a problem in thesouthern United States, where after the 1896 Supreme Court decisionof Plessy vs. Ferguson, a series of laws made th…e mixing of theraces illegal in schools or hospitals or theaters and evenrestricted blacks from drinking from "white only" fountains orusing "white only" dressing rooms in department stores. But thereality is that over the centuries, many cultures have practicedsegregation in one form or other. There are two basic types of segregation: de facto, referring tocultures where it is the custom or habit to stay away from aparticular group or restrict their access to certain services; andde jure, referring to actual laws which prohibit and criminalizethe mixing of certain groups. South Africa, for example, had dejure segregation under the name "apartheid." In America, southern states also practiced de jure segregationuntil 1954, when the Supreme Court rules in Brown vs. the Board ofEducation that de jure segregation was unconstitutional. But sadly,while on paper Brown vs. Board of Education outlawed segregation inAmerica, it persisted. Many states, including some up north,continued to practice de facto segregation, restricting blackpeople to certain neighborhoods, denying them access to certainoccupations, and not admitting them to certain schools, even whenthey were qualified to attend. There were no longer any laws on thebooks, but prejudice endured, enshrined in custom and instereotype. The same tendencies to segregate can still be seen in some othercountries too, where a particular racial or ethnic or religiousgroup is feared and ostracized, even though, technically, suchactions may not be legal.
Segregation exists mostly because of society and fear of the different. People want convenience for them even if it means disconvenience for others. We also have to remember… that a lot of rules were made around 1700s, and therefor aren't much good today. . It's not good to segregate people. We have to bring them together. If we tear them apart (when separating LGBT members and straight people, black and white, trans* and cisgendered, tall and short, fat and skinny..., the list goes on). . Segregation, while convenient to some (for example cisgendered people and toilets) can disconvenience and in some cases drive people enough to end their life for something they could never change. . People are all different. Segregation isn't the answer, and shouldn't be. Full stop..

Who banned segregation? The US Supreme Court in the landmark case of Brown vs. Board of Education (of Topeka) in 1954. The court decided that the standing rule that came out o…f the case of Plessy vs. Ferguson only some 60 years earlier, which said that segregation was constitutionally acceptable, was wrong. Because ultimately there was no such thing as "separate, but equal" and that inevitably one group of people, principally Black people, wound up with "less than equal" accommodations, education, lives, and most importantly, lesser opportunity. And we are a country that is all about opportunity. The Brown case applied to public education. Subsequent cases and laws applied to public transportation, housing, restaurants, and virtually every kind of situation where segregation impaired opportunity. About the only place where segregation is still "legal" (or more appropriately "accepted") are those relatively few situations meant for a particular ethnic, cultural or racial group, such as a Native American homeland, where people of other backgrounds may be welcomed but are not entitled to certain benefits enjoyed by the Native American population, or Native Hawaiians who have homestead rights tied to their bloodline and can prevent those with less than 25% "pure" Hawaiian ancestry from owning land in certain areas.
