Example text

The 1994 elections featured renewed race-baiting from both Republicans and Democrats, particularly on the issues of crime and welfare.

Yet it is unclear how much race-baiting can accomplish thirty years after the passage of civil rights legislation.

The big question is how this perception is to be interpreted politically.
