We've already looked at the records of Chief Justice Roberts, Justices Scalia and Kennedy, and the Court as a whole. The next most senior Justice is Thomas. So let's see how he's been voting in these cases involving issues of racial discrimination.
First up, as in previous posts, is a look at his support for complaints brought by Whites versus his support for those brought by Racial Minorities. Here's Thomas's record alongside those of his 3 colleagues that we've seen in previous posts.

Like Roberts, Scalia, and Kennedy, Thomas voted to uphold all of the complaints in racial discrimination cases brought by Whites. Again like those others, he voted much less frequently to uphold complaints brought by Racial Minorities. Beyond that, Thomas's support for the complaints of Racial Minorities is, like Scalia's, the lowest we've seen.
Indeed, if we exclude those clearer, more straightforward cases, where the Court was in unanimous agreement, his record is even more striking. Let's look at Thomas's voting in the closer cases, where the Justices were divided.
