In my presentation: How Can The Dream Survive If We Murder The Children, I reference Dred Scott’s plight. His personhood was denied as is the case with the baby in the womb. May God bless Judge Napolitano for his fresh, bold and honest account.
In Dred Scott’s Revenge, Judge Andrew Napolitano lays bare the twisted legal history of racism in America.
“All men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights” wedded the American soul to the concept that freedom comes from our humanity, not from the government. But American governments legally suspended the free will of blacks for 150 years, and then denied blacks equal protection of the law for another 150 years.
How did this happen in America, how were the Constitution and laws of the land twisted so as to institutionalize racism, and how did it or will it end? In a refreshingly candid book, Dred Scott’s Revenge: A Legal History of Race and Freedom in America, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano takes a no-holds-barred look at the role of the government in the denial of freedoms based on race.
