In a nut shell, Chief Justice Taney explained
that America had embraced apartheid, as shown
by almost every single law they did examine,
at the state AND federal levels.

He also went on to say that the Supreme Court
had no authority to CHANGE the laws, because
that was beyond their power, under the
Separation of Powers Doctrine.

In a passage which most people never notice,
he says that the solution is simple, if the
people should find that result abhorrent, namely,
he wrote that the instrument contains the means
to amend itself (or words to that effect).

That finally did happen, in the Anti-Slavery
Amendment, but verified historical evidence
now proves that the so-called 14th amendment
was never lawfully ratified.

See several discussions of Dyett v. Turner
elsewhere in this forum.

I hope this helps.
