bbcnews Former president @barackobama shared these words and this photograph by @petesouza in a tweet that has become the most liked ever on twitter. he shared it after the attack on charlottesville, virginia. his words were from a passage from mr mandela’s autobiography, the long walk to freedom. the full quote reads, “no one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion. people must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” more than 3 million people have liked the image. #quoteoftheday #charlottesville #tolerance #obama #quote #instaquote #mandela #nelsonmandela #thelongwalktofreedom #twitter #bbcnews
