Who banned segregation?
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 of 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.

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). .

It fist started with Rosa Parks, she was part of NAACP (the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). Which sparked the northern African American people to …boycott the bus, the walked every where they went, rode bikes, and maybe get a cab i possible. Because of the boycott business ir busses were going low, so the goverment agrred no more bus segregation in the north. But in the south it was different. There was a group of white and black peoples called the freedom riders, an they would sit on a bus and travel all of America (mostly to the south) to protest against bus segregation. But many of the southern people didn't like it and forced many of the buses to stop and brutalised the freedom riders regardless of race. This sent a huge message and the government put a stop to it by demolishing bus segregation.
