The president acknowledged this last week, then reiterated it again today. The administration lied to effect a nationwide racial gerrymander to strengthen white voting power, and four justices gave him their blessing.
Trump not only lied, and four justices not only accepted those lies knowing the truth, but both accused opponents of being conspiracy theorists for stating what was obviously the case. amp.theatlantic.com/amp/article/59…

In effect, John Roberts foiled a massive white power grab on a technicality: that the Trump administration violated administrative law by lying. But much of the media didnt report it that way, because it would have been offensive to many of their viewers and readers.
That kind of market power is so pervasive that we rarely identify it, much have a frequently used colloquialism for it. But if you called it political correctness, you would not be wrong.
