Democrats vs Republicans on Slavery

A new political party

After passing all these pro-slavery laws, in May 1854, a number of anti-slavery Democrats in Congress formed a new political party to fight slavery. Other anti-slavery members who joined them were from the Whigs, Free Soil advocates and Emancipationists. They wanted to gain equal rights for black Americans.
The name of that party? They called it the Republican Party.



Which party held the most slaves?

The Democrats or the Republicans?
If the story is true. The Democrats were for Slavery and passed laws that held Blacks into Slavery until the Civil War. The Republican party was formed and Lincoln freed slaves with the proclamation.

Why do we today support and hold tight to our original slavers?

Why cant Republicans show they were the party of civil rights and win the African American vote away from the Democrats?
If today the Republicans started to champion civil rights and started helping African Americans grow economically .

Would African American switch camps.
Are we for sale to the lesser of evil at the any given moment?

Slave or citizen?
The Dred Scott Case occurred in 1857 and resulted in slaves not having the ability to become citizens in the United States.

Portrait of Dred Scott

Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857), was a landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court held that African Americans, whether slave or free, could not be American citizens and therefore had no standing to sue in federal court, and that the federal government had no power to regulate slavery in the federal territories acquired after the creation of the United States.
Dred Scott, an African American slave who had been taken by his owners to free states and territories, attempted to sue for his freedom. In a 7–2 decision written by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, the Court denied Scott's request. For only the second time in its history the Supreme Court ruled an Act of Congress to be unconstitutional.

Not that much is known of Dred Scott's early years. He was born a slave in Virginia in 1795. In 1820, he was taken by his owner, Peter Blow, to Missouri, where he was later purchased by U.S. Army Surgeon Dr. John Emerson.
Toward the end of 1838, the Army reassigned Emerson to Fort Snelling. By 1840, Emerson's wife Eliza returned to St. Louis with their slaves Scott and Harriet, while Emerson served in the Seminole War. While in St. Louis, she hired them out. In 1842, Emerson left the Army. After he died in the Iowa Territory in 1843, his widow Eliza inherited his estate, including the Scotts. For three years after Emerson's death, she continued to lease out the Scotts as hired slaves.
In 1846, Scott attempted to purchase his and his family's freedom, but Eliza Irene Emerson refused, prompting Scott to resort to legal recourse.
It was expected that the Scotts would win their freedom with relative ease since Missouri courts had previously heard over ten other cases in which they had freed slaves who had been taken into free territory. But, in June 1847, Scott's suit was dismissed on a technicality:
Scott had failed to provide a witness to testify that Scott was in fact a slave belonging to Eliza Emerson.
How this happened is a miscarriage of justice. It was already known Eliza Emerson leased Dred Scott and his family out as servants for three years. Her inheritance papers showed she owned the Scott's when her husband U.S. Army Surgeon Dr. John Emerson died in the Iowa Territory in 1843.
Although Taney hoped that his ruling would settle the slavery question once and for all, the decision immediately spurred vehement dissent from anti-slavery elements in the North, especially Republicans.
Most scholars today (and many contemporary lawyers) considered the ruling regarding slavery in the territories to be dictum, not binding precedent.
The decision would prove to be an indirect catalyst for the American Civil War.
It was functionally superseded by the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which gave blacks full citizenship.

It is now widely regarded by scholars as the worst decision ever made by the Supreme Court.
