  •  Majority minority districts benefit the GOP (8+ / 0-)

    by packing minority voters -- who are generally Democratic voters -- but they also benefit minority politicians by assuring them office.  And so any opposition to them is crippled.  The Democratic Party doesn't dare oppose them.  It would look prejudiced (even though it's plausible that on balance those districts end up reducing the power of minority voters).
