The voting rights act requires racism?

Daily Caller: The case concerned 12 state legislative districts drawn by the GOP-controlled legislature in Virginia, in connection with the redistricting process begun after the 2010 census. The legislature purposefully drew 12 districts with a Black Voting Age Population (BVAP) of 55 percent to ensure minority representation in the legislature.Some states complain that they face something of a catch-22 when they must redraw congressional and state legislative districts every 10 years. On the one hand, the courts forbid states from making race the predominate factor during the redistricting process. Conversely, the Voting Rights Act (VRA) requires states to consider race in redistricting if they have large minority populations. In this case, the justice had to decide how courts should determine if race “predominated” in the redistricting process.

Boldface is mine.

The correct answer is race is not specified at all in federal law.  If they require racial gerrymandering then they require a racist  judiciary.  YA racist judiciary, as allowed in this ruling is cause for secession, under American common law.
