    Separation does not necessarily imply any inequality

    Explanation:

    In 1892, Homer Plessy, a black man, sat in a "whites only" car of a Louisiana train. But Louisiana had a Separate Car Act (1890), which required separate railway cars for blacks and whites, and Plessy ended up arrested.

    In the case, Plessy's lawyer argued that the Separate Car Act violated the 13th and 14th Amendments, which established absolute equality for the races before the law.

    However, the Supreme Court considered that segregation did not necessarily imply any inequality toward African Americans, and it wasn't a form of discrimination. Therefore, the doctrine of "separate but equal" was allowed to continue.
