History lesson

“History lesson”, Monterey Herald – July 11, 2023

Bully for the recent letter to the editor that assailed the horrors of the Dred Scott decision. However, in that 1857 Supreme Court decision, all seven of the Democrat Party judges voted for it, while the two other judges who opposed the ruling included a Republican and an anti-slavery Whig. As for the Jim Crow laws, most of these pro-racist laws were enacted throughout the Democrat Party’s southern states.
