the correct answer is d) they are no citizens and they have no right to petition in court.
what the court said concerning the status of free blacks living in the united states is that “they are no citizens and they have no right to petition in court.”
in the dred scott v. john f. a. sanford of march 1857, the supreme court ruled that scott was not entitled to his freedom. scott had lived in a state that supported slavery but he was sold to an owner that lived in a non-slavery state. the court decision was that african americans were not citizens of the united states.
