65. With respect to the article's overview of the Dred Scott decision

It should be pointed out that Chief Justice Taney did more than just declare that laws against the spread of slavery were unconstitutional. He wrote that the US Constitution was not meant to include American citizenship for black people, regardless of whether they were enslaved or free, and had none of the rights guaranteed by the Constitution. "They had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order ... and so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect".
