Abstract

This paper is about the law of racial vote dilution. Racial vote dilution is both a constitutional and statutory harm, however, because race doctrine requires specific intent, the statutory arm under the Voting Rights Act is dominant in this field. In my paper, I attempt to decipher an underlying theory to unite the doctrine in this context. I then critique the theory which I conclude best fits the doctrine on normative grounds.
