Clarence Thomas is one of a number of Supreme Court justices who came to the court with resumes that were rather thin. The political Left tried to torpedo his nomination with a slanderous political assault,based on uncorrelated and unlikely allegations of boorish behavior. Since his ascendancy to the Court, his conduct, writings, and votes have been outstanding, consistently following the Constitution, the applicable laws, logic, and human compassion. All attempts to criticize Thomas on substance have resulted in the critic looking like a gossiping fool. Thurgood Marshall, not so much. His major opinions were derivative, boring, long, and generally ignorant of the Constitution. It seemed from all indications that he merely asked Bill Brennan what to write, then assigned his leaks to do it. And yet... Every time Justice Thomas is mentioned by the Media, it is accompanied by an ignorant, often catty, slanderous remark. Marshall? The opposite. Media bias? Speaks for itself.
