County Supervisor Redistricting and Asian-Americans

Interesting story in the LA Times, which discusses how Asian Americans might fare under various redistricting proposals.

On its face, I'd tend to agree with the argument that someone representing a pluralistic district is more likely to need to be responsive to all factions because of the reelection imperative. By contrast, someone representing a more homogeneous district only needs to be worried about the dominant faction. Of course, a lot would depend on the individual representative, but the general principle seems intuitive.
