    • Abstract:
      This investigation employs the deconstruction techniques of Jacques Derrida to critique the Plessy v. Ferguson 1896 Supreme Court decision which segregated the Public Schools. Overturned by Brown v. the Board of Education of Topeka 1954, Plessy's racist message reverberates today in the cultural divide, in right-wing media, in politics, and in white supremacist propaganda. The core argument is that Plessy is a paradigm case of racism rooted in metaphysical language. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
