History​ ​VI

Plessy​ ​v​ ​Ferguson

Name:​ ​Teddy​ ​Hwang

Rhetoric:​ ​language​ ​the​ ​has​ ​meant​ ​to​ ​influence​ ​people,​ ​but​ ​it​ ​may​ ​not​ ​be​ ​true

The​ ​decision​ ​in​ ​Plessy,​ ​under​ ​the​ ​rhetoric​ ​of​ ​separate​ ​but​ ​equal​ ​facilities​ ​for​ ​the​ ​black
and​ ​white​ ​races,
Fallacy:​ ​an​ ​idea​ ​that​ ​had​ ​turned​ ​to​ ​false

We​ ​consider​ ​the​ ​underlying​ ​fallacy​ ​of​ ​the​ ​plaintiff's​ ​argument​ ​to​ ​consist​ ​in​ ​the
assumption​ ​that​ ​the​ ​enforced​ ​separation​ ​of​ ​the​ ​two​ ​races​ ​stamps​ ​the​ ​colored​ ​race​ ​with
a​ ​badge​ ​of​ ​inferiority.
Proposition:​​ ​something​ ​that​ ​is​ ​shown​ ​to​ ​ ​people ​ ​to consider

We​ ​cannot​ ​accept​ ​this​ ​proposition.
Merit:​ ​ ​something​ ​ ​positive,​ ​ ​beneficial

a​ ​mutual​ ​appreciation​ ​of​ ​each​ ​other's​ ​merits,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​voluntary​ ​consent​ ​of​ ​individuals.
Sanctioned:​ ​ ​ ​stopping a​ ​trade or a deal​ ​for a​ ​ ​country ​ ​to ​ ​follow ​ ​the ​ ​international
laws.

The​ ​Court​ ​thus​ ​sanctioned​ ​the​ ​legitimization​ ​of​ ​racism​ ​under​ ​state​ ​law.
Dissent:​ ​ ​disagreeing ​ ​with​ ​ ​public ​ ​opinion

In​ ​his​ ​dissent​ ​he​ ​stated,
Expositor:​ ​ ​a​ ​person​ ​or​ ​ ​that​ ​explains​ ​something​ ​complicated

the​ ​final​ ​expositor​ ​of​ ​the​ ​fundamental​ ​law​ ​of​ ​the​ ​land
Pernicious:​ ​ ​causing​ ​harm​ ​that​ ​is​ ​not​ ​ ​noticed.

In​ ​my​ ​opinion,​ ​the​ ​judgment​ ​this​ ​day​ ​rendered​ ​will,​ ​in​ ​time,​ ​prove​ ​to​ ​be​ ​quite​ ​as
pernicious​ ​as​ ​the​ ​decision​ ​made​ ​by​ ​this​ ​tribunal​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Dred​ ​Scott​ ​Case."

(2)​ ​When​ ​was​ ​the​ ​Plessy​ ​v​ ​Ferguson​ ​case​ ​decided?
1896
(3)​ ​What​ ​was​ ​the​ ​lasting​ ​legacy​ ​of​ ​the​ ​case?
​ ​Allowed​ ​separate​ ​but​ ​equal​ ​segregations.
(3)​ ​What​ ​was​ ​the​ ​cause/reason​ ​for​ ​the​ ​case?
Homer​ ​Plessy,​ ​a​ ​man​ ​of​ ​mixed​ ​parentage,​ ​would​ ​board​ ​a​ ​"whites​ ​only"​ ​compartment
of​ ​a​ ​New​ ​Orleans​ ​train​ ​and​ ​then​ ​be​ ​taken​ ​to​ ​jail​ ​for​ ​violating​ ​the​ ​segregation​ ​laws.
(3)​ ​According​ ​to​ ​Albion​ ​Tourgee,​ ​what​ ​Constitutional​ ​violation​ ​had​ ​the​ ​state​ ​of
Louisiana​ ​committed?
Thirteenth​ ​and​ ​Fourteenth​ ​Amendments​ ​in​ ​limiting​ ​"the​ ​natural​ ​rights​ ​of​ ​man."
(3)​ ​Summarize​ ​the​ ​majority​ ​decision​ ​(translate​ ​the​ ​decision​ ​into​ ​your​ ​own​ ​words):
The​ ​decision​ ​turned​ ​intro​ ​that​ ​you​ ​can​ ​have​ ​segregation​ ​but​ ​it​ ​need​ ​to​ ​be​ ​equal​ ​with
each​ ​other,​ ​meaning​ ​that​ ​they​ ​could​ ​have​ ​different​ ​facilities​ ​but​ ​same​ ​services.
(2)​ ​What​ ​did​ ​Justice​ ​Harlan​ ​say​ ​about​ ​the​ ​Constitution?
He​ ​said​ ​that​ ​the​ ​constitution​ ​is​ ​color​ ​blind.
"Our​ ​constitution​ ​is​ ​color-blind,​ ​and​ ​neither​ ​knows​ ​nor​ ​tolerates​ ​classes​ ​among
citizens.​ ​In​ ​respect​ ​of​ ​civil​ ​rights,​ ​all​ ​citizens​ ​are​ ​equal​ ​before​ ​the​ ​law.​ ​The​ ​humblest
is​ ​the​ ​peer​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​powerful.​ ​“
(5)​ ​In​ ​your​ ​opinion,​ ​was​ ​Reconstruction​ ​a​ ​success​ ​or​ ​a​ ​failure​ ​(be​ ​specific)?
Reconstruction​ ​was​ ​a​ ​failure​ ​in​ ​my​ ​opinion.​ ​It​ ​turned​ ​out​ ​great​ ​with​ ​14th,​ ​15th,
reconstruction​ ​acts,​ ​and​ ​everything,​ ​but​ ​in​ ​the​ ​end,​ ​the​ ​compromise​ ​of​ ​1877​ ​and​ ​this
precedent,​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​messes​ ​up​ ​the​ ​whole​ ​reconstruction​ ​idea.
