    "In a 5-4 opinion delivered by Justice Stephen G. Breyer, the Court held that the District Court's conclusion that the state violated the Equal Protection Clause in drawing the 1997 boundaries is based on clearly erroneous findings. Justice Breyer wore for the Court that "the primary evidence upon which the District Court relied for its 'race, not politics,' conclusion is evidence of voting registration, not voting behavior;"

    So A seems to be the answer, you can have majority minority precincts if it is reached politically, but if your only consideration to draw a majority minority precinct is the racial profile of that precinct, then it is unconstitutional.
