Product Description

Dred Scott's Revenge carefully chronicles the horrific effects of slavery that have trickled down to the present day...and that have been sponsored by our government, and upheld by our courts. A fascinating look at the chain of cause-and-effect within American race relations, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano lays the blame squarely upon the American government that enshrined and protected-or was fearful and did nothing-about the discrimination African-Americans faced. With the Dred Scott decision of 1857 as the centerpiece, he makes the case against American statesmen from Lincoln to Wilson, FDR to JFK. Jim Crow, slavery, segregation are all shown to have been created by a legally endorsed racial hatred that was given a cultural and political context in which to flourish. 288 indexed pages, hardcover with dust jacket.

Publisher's Description

Racial hatred is one of the ugliest of human emotions. And the United States not only once condoned it, it also mandated it?wove it right into the fabric of American jurisprudence. Federal and state governments legally suspended the free will of blacks for 150 years and then denied blacks equal protection of the law for another 150.

How did such crimes happen in America? How were the laws of the land, even the Constitution itself, twisted into repressive and oppressive legislation that denied people their inalienable rights?

Taking the Dred Scott case of 1957 as his shocking center, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano tells the story of how it happened and, through it, builds a damning case against American statesmen from Lincoln to Wilson, from FDR to JFK.

Born a slave in Virginia, Dred Scott sued for freedom based on the fact that he had lived in states and territories where slavery was illegal. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against Scott, denied citizenship to blacks, and spawned more than a century of government-sponsored maltreatment that destroyed lives, suppressed freedom, and scarred our culture.

Dred Scott's Revenge is the story of America's long struggle to provide a new context?one in which "All men are created equal," and government really treats them so.
