Could a white guy win in a City Council district meant to unite Asian voters?

"A white guy who lives outside the district may be in a good position to win New York City Council District 43 – even though it was specifically drawn to group residents in the growing Asian community together. That’s Vito LaBella, who lives in nearby Bay Ridge. But his opponent in the Republican primary, Ying Tan, can’t really criticize him too strongly – “Last year, I was the biggest contributor of Vito’s campaign,” Tan said, adding that she gave him office space, hosted events and recruited campaign volunteers for him when he was running in the Asian opportunity state Senate district that he also did not live within."
