What did the Supreme Court say in its Plessy v Ferguson decision

In 1896 the Supreme Court upheld the social segregation of the "white and colored races" under the "separate but equal" doctrine. By a 7-1 vote, the court said that a state law that "implies merely a legal distinction" between the two races did not conflict with the 13th amendment forbidding involuntary servitude, nor did it tend to reestablish such a condition. The court avoid the discussion of the protection granted by the clause in the 14th amendment that forbids the states to make laws depriving citizens of their "privileges or immunities," but instead cited such laws in other states as "reasonable" exercise of their authority under the police power. The purpose of the 14th amendment the court said " was to enforce the absolute equality of the two races before the law......Laws.......requiring their separation not necessarily imply the inferiority of either race." The argument against segregation laws was false because of the "assumption that the enforced separation of the two races stamps the colored race with a badge if inferiority. If this be so, it is solely because the colored races chooses to put that construction upon it." Following this ruling restrictive legislation based on race continued and expanded, and its reasoning wasn't overturned until 1954 with the Brown v Board of Education decision. The Brown's were represented in the court by Thurgood Marshall who was a civil rights advocate and later became the first black Justice on the court.
