All men are created equal.”   We are “endowed by the creator with certain inalienable rights”.    This is what the Declaration of Independence says but  for 200 years Americans have been fighting for the protection of these rights. Almost 100 years after the Declaration of Independence was written slavery was finally outlawed and African Americans were given citizenship with the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments.  It took 100 more years for progress to be made in society.

Brown v. Board of Education  was a very important United States Supreme Court case in 1954.

” The Court declared state laws establishing separate public schools for blacks and white students to become unconstitutional. This case brought up the case of Plessy v. Ferguson.    Brown v. Board of Education 1954, is now acknowledged as one of the greatest Supreme Court decisions of the 20th century.  It unanimously held that the racial segregation of children in public schools violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

I have seen racism still now in these days but I think  it is less than back then. How could other human beings discriminate people of color?  I have never and will never discriminate a black or any colored people. We all are humans, we all are equal.

    I like this artical, I’m also glad that now all schools are desegregated and equal.

    I hate the fact that there is still racism going on till this day. Everyone should have the same education like everyone else and the fact that when the case happened around 1954, it was very very bad and I hope that our generation would not be like it was in the 1950’s with racism even though is still happens. I totally agree that we are all equal and no one should be left out on education because of race.

    We have always learned about this topic but I never understood why it was against African Americans and not white people.

    it makes me feel sick thinking about how someone could deprive another person from education just cause the are a different race. And the fact that is still goes on today is horrrible

    I think education has nothing to do with color. I feel as if anyone should be able to get an education at the same level of learning as anyone else.
