Talk:Separate but equal

I removed the following from the article (which was, actually, everything):

"*Beginning in the 1930s, the NAACP--under the leadership of African-American attorney Charles Hamilton Houston-- began its assault on the "separate but equal" doctrine announced in Plessy. Houston chose to concentrate his efforts on segregation in public education, where he thought the adverse effects of the enforced racial separation could be most easily demonstrated. [1]

The legal doctrine was overturned in Brown v. Board of Education (1954).

In this milestone decision the Supreme Court ruled that separating children in public schools on the basis of race unconstitutional. It signaled the end of legalized racial segregation in the schools of the United States, overruling the "separate but equal" principle set forth in the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson case. [2]

First of all, it doesn't do anything to define "separate but equal." Additionally it is in an unprofessional tone and copy/pasted directly from the source. The source itself (only the first source) is rather unprofessional (with such wonderful phrases like"In an opinion that reads as though written by someone from Mars..."), opinionated, and it doesn't even define "seperate but equal!" Feel free to add back the information, but paraphrase it, and either neutralize it or attribute the opinion. Jazzman831 19:15, 12 July 2007 (EDT)
