Obama shares Mandela quote after deadly white supremacist rally © Provided by The Hill Obama shares Mandela quote after deadly white supremacist rally Former President Obama tweeted a Nelson Mandela quote condemning racism hours after a white supremacist rally in Virginia turned deadly.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion..." Obama tweeted, featuring a photo of him talking to small children of different ethnicities through a window.

The quote comes from Mandela's 1994 inaugural address, when he became the first black president of South Africa.

Obama's message comes hours after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. turned violent. A car plowed into a crowd of anti-fascism protestors, killing one person and leaving more than a dozen others injured.

Two Virginia State police officers were also killed when their helicopter crashed, which authorities linked to the rally.

President Trump condemned the violence at the rally but refused to single out white supremacists in his comments, drawing fire from GOP senators who demanded he call the event an attack of terror.


Idaho state rep shares conspiracy theory accusing Obama of staging Charlottesville .
An Idaho state lawmaker is facing backlash for sharing a conspiracy theory that former President Obama helped to orchestrate the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., as part of a plot to take down President Trump. Idaho Rep. Bryan Zollinger on Friday posted a story on Facebook that suggested Obama and other top Democrats like billionaire George Soros and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe were part of a conspiracy to set up the rally, the Post Register reported. "I'm not saying it is true, but I am suggesting that it is completely plausible," Zollinger wrote on Facebook.
