Obama posts Nelson Mandela quote to Twitter in reaction to Charlottesville violence
WASHINGTON (SINCLAIR BROADCAST GROUP) —
In a reaction posted to Twitter Saturday, former President Barack Obama condemned the white nationalist viewpoints behind the earlier violence in Charlottesville, Virginia with a Nelson Mandela quote.
Under a photo of himself peering through a window at children of various ethnicities, the 44th commander in chief wrote: "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or religion."
"People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught how to love."
"For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."
