I can't tie this one back to comic books

This is Texas attorney general Greg Abbott, arguing that Texas' gerrymandering efforts are not racist:

DOJ's accusations of racial discrimination are baseless. In 2011, both houses of the Texas Legislature were controlled by large Republican majorities, and their redistricting decisions were designed to increase the Republican Party's electoral prospects at the expense of the Democrats. It is perfectly constitutional for a Republican-controlled legislature to make partisan districting decisions, even if there are incidental effects on minority voters who support Democratic candidates... The redistricting decisions of which DOJ complains were motivated by partisan rather than racial considerations, and the plaintiffs and DOJ have zero evidence to prove the contrary.

Better not let the anti-tanning bed tax people know that a policy that only incidentally targets a specific ethnicity is racist. But i love the defense slash admission. We're not racist, just hyper-partisan. Ok, whatever you want to call it. But why not just pass a law that says Democrats can't vote?
