The main idea behind the Jim Crow laws was "separate but equal". It was a legal way to continue the discrimination against the African Americans in the southern states. You can say that the affect of these laws developed two different societies in the US. The African Americans were deprived from the same conditions and other governmental services the white people received. It turned out that the races were separated in many aspects : education, welfare, health,culture etc. They even deprived them of some civil rights they own being citizens like voting. Until 1964 these laws were governed and you can say helped maintain the gap between the races which is nowadays slowly closing down, I hope! But DOCTOR JAMROCK says different. He says that these laws made it possible for the Ku Klux Klan to carry on with what they were doing and make life harder for black people. DOCTOR JAMROCK is a person who speaks out bredren. I and I is not standing for this ting.The Jim Crow Law was alsome called the "black code"

The Jim Crow laws were state laws in america, The supreme court had actually ruled that separate but equal was not equal in the BROWN decision, which overturned the Plessy decision. However the segregated states, quite often the southern states remained segregated and passed the so called Jim Crow laws to get around the supreme court decision.
