Why did the Supreme Court rule that segregation was constitutional?

  • history -

    The U.S. Constitution is purposely vague in many areas. There's nothing in it that prohibits segregation -- especially with the Court's stipulation that facilities and schools be "separate but equal." Also, this decision reflected the will of many citizens.
