Ari Berman: Behind the Republicans' Racialized Redistricting Strategy

Ari Berman, Investigative Journalism Fellow at The Nation Institute, joins former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, Hugo Lindgren and John Heilemann on MSNBC’s Now with Alex Wagner to discuss redistricting politics in the South. The Republicans, Berman explains, are trying to draw Democrats into as few heavily minority districts as possible to turn “the Republican party into the ‘white party’ and the Democratic party into the ‘black party.’” This will insure Republican majorities in all of the South, including in important swing states like North Carolina, for the next decade. For more, read Berman’s article, “How the GOP Is Resegregating the South.”
