"The Russian company charged with orchestrating a wide-ranging effort to meddle 
in the 2016 presidential election overwhelmingly focused its barrage of social 
media advertising on what is arguably America’s rawest political division: race.

"The roughly 3,500 Facebook ads were created by the Russian-based Internet 
Research Agency, which is at the center of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 
February indictment of 13 Russians and three companies seeking to influence the 
election.

"While some ads focused on topics as banal as business promotion or Pokémon, 
the company consistently promoted ads designed to inflame race-related 
tensions. Some dealt with race directly; others dealt with issues fraught with 
racial and religious baggage such as ads focused on protests over policing, the 
debate over a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico and relationships with the 
Muslim community."
