My Dearest Megan.

They DID!

It was called the Dredd Scott decision.

Chief Justice Taney (who fancied himself an abolitionist) ruled that Dredd Scott was NOT a person and Blacks were NOT to be given protections under U.S. Law.

It was a Major factor in why the Civil War broke out when it did.

But Taney still said he was an abolitionist though.

Does that sound familiar? (cough)Roberts, Deathcare (cough)

I’m sorry, I was referring to the current court. I should have made that clear, my apologies!

I just don’t think the current court would rule 9-0 on the sky being blue.
