What is the most underrepresented minority on the Supreme Court?

Women? 51.1% of US population, 11% of Supreme Court
African Americans? 12.3% of US population, 11% of Supreme Court
Hispanics? 12.5% of US population, 0% of Supreme Court
Protestants? 53% of US population, 11% of Supreme Court
Others?

Last I read, the Supreme Court didn’t represent anyone or any group. It is a body of learned individuals that interpret the laws vis-à-vis the constitution. It would be incredibly destructive if any member of the supreme court made decisions based their "membership" in any one group.

    Those who want to interpret the Constitution, not re-write it.

    women, under represented by 40%

    the next justice has to be a woman, a minority woman if possible

    we have had plenty of protestants on the court, probably 90% of all justices were protestant

    Irish Americans, German Americans, Polish Americans, Hungarian Americans, Lithuanian Americans, Latvian Americans, Estonian Americans, Albanian Americans, Mic Mac Indians, Italian Americans, and Czechoslavakian Americans are all underrepresented minorities and they all can be found in my diverse and multicultural neighborhood of South Boston, Massachusetts.

    Women. As for Native Americans, they are members ("citizens") of their tribe, which has some sovereign status. As for hispanics, the percentage of citizens who are hispanic is far less than that. Most hispanics are not citizens — and justices must be citizens.
