The far-left Washington Post has been charged with racism for alleging that Clarence Thomas, the second black justice to serve on the Supreme Court, issues rulings that reflect the “thinking of white conservatives.”

In an article about Rep. Jim Clyburn’s (D-SC) influence over President Joe Biden for his next Supreme Court pick, the Washington Post issued an overtly racist addendum to a quote from Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) about Clyburn’s bona fides.

“‘If you know that a person has been vetted by Jim Clyburn, you know that person won’t go to the court and end up being a Clarence Thomas,’ referring to the Black justice whose rulings often resemble the thinking of white conservatives,'” wrote the “paper of record.”

The Washington Post later issued a correction after people on social media denounced the line as racist.

“A previous version of this story imprecisely referred to Justice Clarence Thomas’s opinions as often reflecting the thinking of White conservatives, rather than conservatives broadly. That reference has been removed,” it said.

Regardless of the change, the outlet’s treatment of Clarence Thomas was not lost on the broader public.
