“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion,” was Obama’s message, partially quoting remarks from former South African President and activist Nelson Mandela’s 1994 biography “Long Walk to Freedom.” It is accompanied by a picture of him greeting a diverse group of children at a day-care center’s window.
