Racial Gerrymandering: Pronunciation Key

is the process of creating electoral districts in a manner which gives the dominant political party greater influence in elections.

Racial Gerrymandering which allowed electoral districts to be redrawn into bizarre shapes in order to create districts with a majority of non-white people. The theory was that this process gave underrepresented non-white people a chance to "elect their own" to office.

How does this definition have anything to do with race?
