Brown Vs. Board of Education & Marriage Equality

Reading a lot of blogs this morning re: Maine, Kalamazoo, WA, DC, etc.

So this idea of voting to allow for equal marriage: If we had put up for a vote Brown Vs. Board of Education, in which a people would be allowed to vote on the Supreme Court decision of the 1950s AFTER the Supreme Court voted, how do you think the vote would've turned out?

My hunch? Continued segregation of schools (as if that still didn't happen with the mass production of private schools).

So do we not have to argue the merits of equal treatment under the law in re: to marriage before a court, or the Supreme Court?
