In his opinion in the case of Dred Scott v. Sanford, Chief Justice Taney stated all the following EXCEPT:
||The Fifth Amendment protected slaveowners’ rights to their property.
||The Missouri Compromise had been unconstitutional because it violated slaveowners’ property rights.
||The framers of the Constitution clearly had not intended the Constitution to apply to anyone of African descent.
||Slave status did not depend on geography but traveled everywhere with a person who was a slave.
||As long as society provided separate but equal opportunities to African slaves, it did not have to do anything more for them.
