1 Answer


Answer: Prejudice made people judge blacks as unknowledgeable and ignorant. They thought they were a danger to society so they created the act to keep a leash on them in a sense.

Explanation: Passed on September 18, 1850, by Congress, The Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 was part of the Compromise of 1850. The act required that slaves be returned to their owners, even if they were in a free state. The act also made the federal government responsible for finding, returning and trying escaped slaves.
