    If Section 2 of the majority-minority requirement is removed, but you're perhaps right on the whole.  Republicans will continue to create "Race-sinks" if they were control of the process.  

    I wonder how it would play out in states that have independent redistricting commissions though.  I know for a fact that CA-46 would look different if the majority-minority requirement wasn't there, as the commission originally had it looking very different before VRA concerns were raised.
