Brown Vs Board
1. What do you think segregated schools were like in pre-1954 America? In what parts of
the country were schools segregated? Were schools in your state segregated? How was
the experience of a black student in public school different from that of a white student?
Most schools were most likely unjust, and far from equal. Segregation was in fact
present in California. Conditions were harsh for the Negro person.
2. The Supreme Court decision has come to be known, in shorthand form, as Brown v.
Board of Education. But that one name represents several cases. What other cities and
states were involved in court battles to end public school segregation? How were these
cases alike? How were they different?
Many cases, usually within the southern states, fought for the desegregation within the
nation. What they had in common was that they never tread on the public grounds nor
did they tackle segregation directly. They were different in the sense that they werent
specific to their cases per say.
3. What is segregation? Does it still exist? Other than schools, where have segregation
battles been fought?
Segregation is the separation of races. It does indeed exist, and other places where
segregation has been fought have been public stations such as bathrooms and restaurants.
4. Different groups in the United States reacted differently to the Brown decision. How did
African Americans react? Were all African Americans in favor of the decision? How did

white Americans react? Where in the United States was the strongest reaction felt against
Brown?
Many Africans were uncertain of what to make of the decision since they had been so
used to the segregation that they saw only a bit wrong with it. The whites however were
infuriated and began to join in arms and take down the African population. Southern
states were especially prone to controversy.
5. Is WRHS segregated? In what ways? What could you do to work against that segregation,
bringing more integration to your school?
No.
6. Do you believe in what Brown v. Board stands for? How close to or far from fully
embracing the Brown decision are we, as a society? What else needs to happen for us to
move closer to the ideals of Brown?
No, the problem with the Brown vs Board was that it takes away the sense of racial pride.
Instead we are fed this fraudulent nonsense on how we must connect together as one;
becoming ever closer to the socialist views that we all have originally become so opposed
to. However, it is with the people and the majority to want such things.
7. How would schools have looked in your area had the Supreme Court not ruled against
segregation in 1954? How would your life, and the lives of other students, be different?
Had the facilities truly been equal to where everything was exactly the same up to the
students and location, then I would believe it would help the community gain a stronger
sense of pride in their race rather than to embrace weakness. However, seeing the
conditions that were present during that era, very few things would have changed, though
Im not sure where the Mexicans would end up in California considering they were not a
priority.
8. The Supreme Court concluded in its Brown decision that "separate educational facilities
are inherently unequal." Using the web or school library, research how the resources of
segregated schools differed.
Practically everything was trash for the segregated school.

9. Many schools today are virtually all white or all-minority, even though no law requires
segregation. This is sometimes called de facto segregation. Do you think de facto
segregation has a detrimental effect on students?
No, the teachers should show how the students must embrace their race and take pride in
it.
10. What does the 13, 14 and 15 Amendments have in common?
They were made solely for the African man.
