(Huffington Post)   In news that will shock you, it turns out that the less "ethnically challenged" a congressional district is drawn, the more likely a Republican represents it. Shocking, absolutely shocking   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 67

no, I'm wondering why you have a problem with them.
minorities aren't ever going to gravitate toward the republican party as long as the democrat party offers government benefits based on the color of their ethnicity in contravention to the equal protection clause of the constitution.
so you won, and all you had to do was abandon a pillar of western jurisprudence, equal protection of the law.
so why don't you tell me why you get so f*cking butthurt when white people vote overwhelming for the only party that isn't f*cking them over for the color of their skin?

So we should somehow create minority districts for "fairness" without making the other districts have less minorities.  Who'da thunk that there is such a thing as a double edge weapon?

I read some comments about the 97% pro-Obama vote in some heavily-gerrminandered black districts in Philadelphia--"SEE WE TOLD YOU THERE'S FRAUD."

So first you gerrymander districts so that all Democratic voters are in a handful of districts, and the others are won by Republicans 55%-45%...then you declare fraud.

You guys are still trying to push that failed meme.

You'd think that after witnessing how badly it backfired on Romney when he used it, conservatives would get a clue.

Even Newt Gingrich thinks your argument is stupid. Take a moment to ponder that fact.

The difference in the benefits is one group gets welfare checks to the tune of hundred while the other group gets corporate bailouts to the tune of billions.

Here's a chicken. From the talking points you were spewing above, I'll assume you know what to do with it:

The problem is that no one had the foresight to see how this game would end when it started.   Races don't get to vote, parties don't get to vote.  Its still actually done by individuals and elected representatives regardless of what the shills on either side say.  Splitting the districts into 90% one way or the other won't make it better it will be worse.  I'm admittedly a white guy married to a white woman, and she just happens to work for a medical partnership managed by a black male who had the overwhelming advatage over me of being born in rural Mississippi as one of over ten kids.  Doesn't mean that every black person does better, but it does mean that being born poor and black in rural Mississippi isn't your beginning and end.   These Political models are based on the assumption that Race and Gender are determiners not predictors.     His father valued education and none of the sons not gotten a college degree or have a criminal record.   He doesn't live that far away from my White boss and both are CPA's.   The very concept that anything changes because you move the district and then some Politican puts you on easy street is a joke.  We're having another debate on what brand of Snake Oil works best.
