RE: NC Map Comparison
If you want to debate the extent of gerrymandering executed by the two parties you need only look at the party breakdown from the last two decades. When the Democrats controlled the process the split was always close. Since the Republicans took control it isn't close. In fact my very own state representative runs the process and it appears his own words played a major role in the court ruling.

Maybe, just maybe, NC has always had a natural advantage on the federal level that has been masked by the Dems gerrymander. You're also forgetting to include the political execution of the Blue Dog Democrats by the Democratic party. Reps like McIntyre in my district were Democrats but now the district is Republican because a Blur Dog cannot win the Democratic primary

So many factors go into the Dems having an even number of House seats on the federal level.

The dems gerrymandered the best they could just like the GOP did. Do you agree with that statement?

The courts did nothing about it then so why are they doing something now?

Which is worse

Under the voting rights act NC is required to create two districts that a minority candidate would have a fighting chance to win, thus the 12 district that you see on the 90 map. That isn't gerrymandering.

The 2010 map packs Democrats into 3 districts to such an extreme that they have little to no chance to win in other 10. Look at the 2nd and 4th Districts. Now that's some gerrymandering for you there. I know because I've been bounced from one to the other for years.

RE: NC Map Comparison
If memory serves, the one on the right was drawn by democrats to ensure a Blue district with a minority majority.

I think that is a false equivalency. There is certainly gerrymandering regardless of party but the extent that the GOP went to once they gained power is over the top. Also the courts did do something about it when Democrats were in power. There were court challenges and various districts had to be redrawn on more that one occasion.

As required by law under the Voting Rights Act. But it actually doesn't have to be minority majority, just minority populated enough that minorities have political influence that could make it possible that a minority candidate could possibly be elected.
