Plessy V. Ferguson by: Amelya S., mercedes h., charley o.

The argument was to infer the absolute equality of the two race before the law. The two people it was between was the white and non-white people. The white got more privileges then the non-white just because of their color.

The supreme courts decision was that racial segregation is constitutional under the separate but equal doctrine.

The case effected the country by penalty for sitting in the wrong compartment of color was a fine of $25 or 20 days in jail.

It effected the culture of the country by putting people apart by their color/race.
