I've been writing about gerrymandering as a massive & complicated problem for 12+ years. 100% agree it's about power, not white supremacy.

Respectfully, a question: why did the Obama DOJ pre-clear maps that failed to add new AA seats in AL/LA/SC? Was that white supremacy?

Did the Obama DOJ support "white supremacy" when it signed off on GOP maps that failed to add new AA seats in AL, LA & SC in 2012?

My point is, it would've been possible to draw an 3rd AA majority district in MD, but Dems chose to protect their own (white) incumbents.

And don't get me wrong, I think the courts should have required add'l Latino seats in DFW/HOU. But "white supremacy" doesn't fit here.

There are 9 districts in TX that are more than 60% Latino. That's 25% of seats, higher than the Latino share of the 2016 TX electorate.
