The answer would be judicial restraint. Plessy v Ferguson strictly employed judicial restraint because it followed the principle of stare decisis or went with the precedent decision. It went against the concept of civil rights and giving freedoms to African Americans and was generally conservative in its ruling.

Brown v. Board of Education, 347 US 483 (1954) has often been cited as an example of liberal judicial activism because it ignored the doctrine of stare decision by overturning the long-accepted "separate but equal" standard established in Plessy v. Ferguson, (1896) and reinterpreting the by overturning the long-accepted "separate but equal" standard established in Plessy v. Ferguson, (1896) and reinterpreting the 13th and 14th Amendments in a manner that supported African-Americans' civil rights. Progressives hasten to point out that Plessy was a bad precedent, and the Warren Court simply corrected social and political biases that were not intended when the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendments were ratified
