Revisiting Dred Scott vs. Sandford
Was the SCOTUS’s most infamous ruling really off the mark?
…They had no rights the white man was bound to respect…
I see this quote a lot, especially in the writing of anti-racists. But far-right, “race realists” cite it, too. It’s from paragraph 36 of Chief Justice Roger B. Taney’s infamous 1858 rejection of Dred Scott’s bid for freedom.
