Does this have implications regarding gerrymandering in other states?

Isn’t it just a tad ironical that the Supreme Court that emasculated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act has upheld the results of a redistricting conducted under Section 2 back in the day when it was still the law of the land?  This time the Supremes got it right.  The districts aren’t perfect but they are as good as a hard-working, often obstructed, redistricting commission could make them.  The system put in place by the voters is working!

This is what they really should be…done by a computer, and ignoring such idiotic factors such as political party or skin color…
