Does Justice Thomas support the Supreme Court’s notorious Korematsu decision? - The Washington Post

In an interesting recent article, and a post at Prawfsblawg, legal scholar Mark Kende argues that Justice Clarence Thomas approves of Korematsu v. United States, the notorious 1944 Supreme Court decision that upheld the internment of over 100,000 Japanese-Americans during World War II.

I understood that the scandal wasn't so much the internment, but the theft of their property. No?
