Once upon a time, a wealthy seven-eighths white guy (aka an octoroon) hated blacks. His name was Homer Adolph “Octoroon Hitler” Plessy. And Octoroon Hitler avoided blacks whenever possible. But sometimes evil white people racistly refused to help Octoroon Hitler avoid black people. They said Octoroon Hitler “was not white enough” to deserve avoiding blacks.
Eventually, Octoroon Hitler took his hatred of blacks to the Supreme Court: “I am seven-eighths white and only one eighth black!,” argued Octoroon Hitler, “and the mixture of black blood is not noticeable in me, so I am entitled to every right, privilege and immunity secured to the white race in the United States — and the most important white right is the right to avoid all these disgusting blacks!”
Octoroon Hitler’s heroically racist fight for white, colorless, soulless justice was rejected by the Supreme Court in the infamous court case Plessy v. Ferguson, where the court ruled that Octoroon Hitler was not white enough to deserve avoiding blacks.
The Plessy v. Ferguson decision then stood as legal precedent for half a century in the United States, until the heroes of a later Supreme Court overturned the Plessy decision, with the glorious decision in the Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education, where the justices ruled that blacks had a civil right to be around white people. The justices said that without being around white people, black people become “retarded.” Yes — really.
Oh, and USA’s white-devil history remembers Homer Plessy as a civil rights activist…who fought for the rights of black people. Yes — really.
