How are the courts able to change the Constitution?

They can "change" the Constitution by making rulings in lawsuits on the meaning of the Constitution's wording. They don't change, add to or subtract from the words in the Constitution the way an Amendment would, but they can read the same words differently. A good example is the one concerning racial segregation. In the 1896 case of Plessy v. Ferguson, the Supreme Court ruled that separate restrooms for whites and blacks was not unconstitutional as long as the facilities were equal. In effect, racial segregation was constitutional. Then the Supreme Court in the 1954 case of Brown v. Board of Education ruled that "separate but equal" facilities were inherently unequal and therefore unconstitutional. In effect, segregation was now unconstitutional. The Constitution had changed even though not one word, comma or sentence of the Constitution had been changed in the time between the two cases.
