Even though Plessy lost his case and had to plead guilty, the public influence of Plessy vs Ferguson was huge. Plessy help to provide more arguments and further the questioning of the laws of the United States government. The African American public had once again see the government do nothing to help out their cause and they once again looked past the injustice of what had just happened. The fact the the government was suppose to be separate but equal had once again proven how it was flawed. The separate facilities and institutions that were there for the African American community were always inferior and much more run down compared to those that were provided for the White community.
Jim Crow Laws began becoming enforced even more so by the end of the 1890s. There would be even more segregation in life with separate schools, hotels, restaurants, grocery stores, public bathrooms, pools, movie theaters and even separate parts of town. The African American community would begin to see these injustices and they began standing up more and voicing their opinions. It would not be until 1954 during the Supreme Court decision of Brown v, Board of Education that the separate but equal doctrine would become overturned due to the fact that it was neither true nor equal.
