I dunno, does the VRA require a majority white district in DC?

There are three majority-white districts on the DC city council (assume that's the relevant point of reference), and one plurality-white one, out of eight total, and the at-large seats are held 3/5 by white people, making for an overall council that is majority (7/13) white, so the issue hasn't arisen. I think the city council was majority white or close to it even when DC was more like 70% black.
