The private places were defined as the areas such as the private means of transport and lodgings. The approach to the issue that the government adopted was indicative of the unwillingness of to intervene.
The government claimed that the act of discriminating the entrance of the people into the areas was wrong. However, the wrongs were committed in a private capacity and there was nothing that the government could do to correct the trend. The famous case between Brown v. Board of education (1954) was the main cause of the changes that are manifested in the American learning arena today. The desegregation of the education system stemmed from the determination made on the case. However, the very act of desegregating the public learning system has led to the development of major issues in the current times that beg the question of how effective the recommendations were. The paper will also address the issue of the possible recurrence of segregation in the education sector and the stands of the major players in the society and the political arenas on the possibility.
As the paper postulated earlier, there are chances that the recommendations that arose after the determination of the case between Brown v. Board of Education did not work well. The recommendations sought to eradicate the whole issue of discrimination that was evident in the early 20th century (Case 205). Various research conducted in the area have indicated that the people are leaning more towards the trend that was evident in the 1960.

This means that the entire issue of the desegregation of the public schools did not work or at least the government was not sincere in the claim that it was working on the desegregation of the school.

Slaves were given their freedom following the Civil War by means of the Thirteenth Amendment and the 1968 ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment reinforced the rights of ex-slaves. Unfortunately civil liberties for black persons suffered a setback in the late 19th Century following the Plessy v.
Racism has existed in this nation since the 1890’s. The minority groups namely Negroes, Hispanics, Latinos and Indians have suffered the most out of the race issue. Early in the 1900’s education belonged to the whites only. The minority groups demanded the freedom to enjoy equal rights.
In order to be able to look at the situation in the US with regard to the issue of racial segregation in schools it is necessary to examine the case of Brown v The Board of Education 1954 and look at the background behind the case to see why the action was brought and what the outcome of the court decision was.
The facilities did not erase from the mind of people the fact that one school was dominated by purely white and the other by purely black students and the blacks were still being considered unequal in status to the whites and in fact regarded and treated as inferior
Six different cases are cited in the case study. This shows that there was a great deal of confusion about what is meant by “separate but equal”. In Plessy v. Ferguson of 1896, the Negro plaintiff lost by a seven-to-one vote which
