During the Jim Crow era blacks and white were severally separated race wise ,multiple African-Americans were being Lynched and killed and there was nobody batting an eye towards this situation and it was seen as a normal situation in the South. The Plessy V. Ferguson case of 1895 caused segregation and Jim Crow to start with the “ Separate But Accommodations “ rule  . This law caused a lot of turmoil between blacks and whites because of whites believing they more superior than blacks and that blacks were the less relevant race compared to them. Black men and boys were killed ,kidnapped ,and lynched and this became a normal thing at this time and there wasn’t any attention drawn towards these situations happening in the South since it was seen as a normal thing. The Brown v. Board case help go against the Jim Crow law with helping segregation end in Public Schools in the South and help blacks and whites to start being actually equal but not separated.
