The article explores the historical interpretations of the Fourteenth Amendment and the Supreme Court's ruling in the Parents Involved case. It argues that the Court's anticlassification principle is not supported by the central meaning and legacy of Brown. It states that the decision has changed the meaning of Brown via adopting formal equality as a normative constitutional principle. It adds that the court dismisses the harm of segregation and stresses the harm of racial classification.
