I have lived in Missouri for many years. I am a free man!
I do not care if you live there, you are not legal here!
This is not fair, i have lived freely for years and have not had any problems with slavery.
You do not have the same rights as a white man. I'm sorry but these are the laws.
You will not be given emancipation! Your rights aren't the same.
Supreme court ruled (7-2) that dred scott who lived in an area that prohibited slavery was not entitled to his freedom. They said that african americans are not and will not ever be legal citizens of the United States. Also, ruled that the missouri compromise was unconstitutional. Dred scott was not doing anything wrong in the process, he had lived there for many years and nothing had ever caused a confliction with him.
