    Dred Scott Decision — On March 6, 1857, Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, of the United States Supreme Court, declared that “The negro has no rights which the white man is bound to respect”; in a decision to deny a Black Slave, Dred Scott, and his Family their freedom.

    In this part of his opinion the chief justice said:

    "It is difficult, at this day, to realize the state of public opinion in relation to that unfortunate race which prevailed in the civilized and enlightened portions of the world at the time of the Declaration of Independence, and when the constitution was framed and adopted. But the public history of every European nation displays it in a manner too plain to be mistaken. They had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior race, and altogether unfit to associate with the white races, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect, and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit."

    Thanks Destee

    This decision has NEVER BE OVERTURNED and stands even today. Contrary to what people think, this decision CAN NOT be over turned and serves as to the reason we have a Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act which must be reauthorized every few years.

    The reason why the Dred Scott Decision can not be over turned is based on Constitutional law and under the constitution, black slaves were not united States citizens; therefore, the constitution excluded their protection until the 14th Amendment in which case a new class of citizens were created and given protection and ownership of the federal government. It is only in "Common Law" that true freedom resides for it declares all men to have "inalienable" rights grant by God and not man. We must study the law to know the truth and it is not what we think we know.

    Peace
    Pastor Eddie

    The citizenship clause (also known as the naturalization clause[1]) refers to a provision, in the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution at section one, clause 1. This clause represented Congress's reversal of that portion of the Dred Scott v. Sandford decision that declared that African Americans were not and could not become citizens of the United States or enjoy any of the privileges and immunities of citizenship. The Civil Rights Act of 1866 had already granted U.S. citizenship to all people born in the United States; the framers of the Fourteenth Amendment enshrined this principle in the Constitution in order to stop the Supreme Court from ruling it unconstitutional for want of congressional authority to pass such a law, or a future Congress from altering it by a bare majority vote.

    The U.S. Constitution is the key.

    The decision in Dred Scott v. Sandford exacerbated risisng sectional tensions between the North and South. Although the Missouri Compromise had already been repealed prior to the case, the decision nonetheless appeared to validate the Southern version of national power, and to embolden pro-slavery Southerners to expand slavery to all reaches of the nation. Unsurprisingly, antislavery forces were outraged by the decision, empowering the newly formed Republican Party and helping fuel violence between slaveowners and abolitionists on the frontier. Following the Civil War, the Reconstruction Congress passed, and the states ratified, the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments, all of which directly overturned the Dred Scott decision. Today, all people born or naturalized in the United States are American citizens who may bring suit in federal court.

    According to wikipedia, this court decision has been superseded by the 13th and 14th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution.
