119. "The Negro had no rights which the white man was bound to respect..." Roger Taney, Chief Justice
Chief Justice Taney, who presided over the Dred Scott case, is the source of the famous phrase, "The Negro had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit. He was bought and sold and treated as an ordinary article of merchandise and traffic, whenever profit could be made by it."

He said out loud what too many believe--to the present day. :(
