Robert A. So, although the terrible Dred Scott decision was overcome only with amendments to the Constitution propelled by a Civil War, the original document was plainly more flexible and accommodating than is made out in a long line of terrible and prejudiced decisions. 2 people found this helpful.

Constitutions should consist only of general provisions; the reason is that they must necessarily be permanent, and that they cannot calculate for the possible change of things. Constitutions are intended to preserve practical and substantial rights, not to maintain theories. Oliver Wendell Holmes, J. Davis v. Mills, 194 . Now and then, an extraordinary case may turn up, but constitutional law, like other mortal contrivances, has to take some chances, and in the great majority of instances, no doubt, justice will be done.

Why bother with subjects not mentioned? Because, as a matter of fact, we have no choice. The list of unusually important subjects the Constitution does not mention is very long. These three agree in expressing the widely-held view of this clause that, for the Founders, blacks were less than human, somehow or other only a fraction of a human being.

Reviews about Why Blacks, Women and Jews Are Not Mentioned in the Constitution, and Other Unorthodox Views (2):

I bought this book with neutral expectations. I was surprised at the lucid analysis that is best appreciated if one thinks of the many Constitutions being drafted even now, such as in Nepal. What is striking is the careful attention to the future possibilities that defines the US Constitution. This agnostic approach combined with a respect for the limitation of the English language resulted in a masterful effort that squeezed more out the language than one would expect.

The details and arguments are rather useful in preparing our young to appreciate their inheritance and good fortune. Where High Schools are drab and run of the mill, this book sets an accessible analysis that leads for meaningfully interesting term papers. And, it makes the parents look smart rather than fuddy-duddies as children sharpen their wits faced with inequality, deprivation and injustice in human society. So, although the terrible Dred Scott decision was overcome only with amendments to the Constitution propelled by a Civil War, the original document was plainly more flexible and accommodating than is made out in a long line of terrible and prejudiced decisions.

What a friend we have in Jesus!

I don't know whether Jesus was African American, Hispanic, transsexual, poor, lesbian, Cuban, Russian, Southern, Mississippian, gay, Park Avenue Grandee, or my dear friend Craig Claiborne with a beard and sandals; He shore was a RIGHT!

Best to Jane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
