Fugurson case which resulted in “ separate facilities for education” and an “ equal education”.
It is from this case that we recall the term “ separate but equal”, in which whites and black had to attend separate schools but supposedly obtain an equal education. Richmond case, in which three black families petitioned the court to allow their children to finish their high school education at a white high school, due to the closing of the local black high school which would intergrate African Americans and whites under one facility.
This unequal treatment of separate but equal education continued until the 1954 case which we have all became so familiar with “ the Brown V. In this case a young girl from Kansas had to walk 21 blocks to the closet black only school when a white only school was only seven blocks away.
In which the court declared an end to racially segregated schools due to the unequal education. Board of Education case everyone thought we reached a new level of educational equality.
My decision to reject my culture was influenced by my presence in an all white middle school, which changed as I entered a more diverse high school.
For once in my life, I could actually interact with people of various backgrounds, perspectives, and identities.The unfair and racial segregation even continued into the 1950 with the Sweatt V.Painter case consisted on an African American, Homas Sweatt, being denied access to the university of texas law school because he was black.This is a message I’ve able to send through my presentations on the Debate and Speech teams.From using debate philosophy that values the rights of minorities to performing a piece about dual consciousness and identity.This time last week, Raajii Daniel heard the news that he knew would change his life – he got into Yale. I remember mocking my parents’ African accent at lunch to make my white friends laugh.The son of Ethiopian immigrants and the first person in his family to go to university, Raajii is hoping to study Economics and Maths when he joins the Class of 2021. I remember the long, silent dinners with my parents, the ones where I couldn’t look them in the eyes, and I felt ashamed to be there.Whether it is Ethiopia’s culinary masterpieces or its strength and endurance during the age of colonialism, my culture has proven that it could never stink.This unjust act of racism and inequality within the school system can be dated back to 1896 with the Plessy V.What is not taken under consideration is the views of the parent tend to be mocked and mimicked through their children.Parents actions show their seriousness towards the matter by showing that anything aside from this traditional segregation results in rebellion.
