    "Russian propagandists targeted African Americans to influence 2016 US election"

    "One popular bogus Facebook account created by the Russians,
    Blacktivist, attracted 4.6 million “likes”. It told followers in the final
    weeks of the campaign that “no lives matter to Hillary Clinton”, that
    black people should vote for the Green party candidate, Jill Stein,
    and that “not voting is a way to exercise our rights”"

    Exactly who are you talking to when you say "you lot", then?

    Political strategy.
    Can you blame them? They did what they needed to do to win.

    That sort of thing is commonplace. Americans do it all the time and it is legal. This is only raising eyebrows because a foreign government is doing it. That is the only reason.

    "Race and Russian interference: Senate reports detail age-old tactic"

    "Theodore Johnson, a fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice who studies black
    voting behavior, said one thing being missed in the analysis of Russia’s black-centric
    web content is that a lot of it was probably intended to sway white audiences."
