Actor, politician Arnold Schwarzenegger has donated $100,000 to help an anti-hate group in Los Angeles in the wake of the Charlottesville violence.
Schwarzenegger made his statement on his Facebook page after the violent protest which left a young lady dead after a vehicle furrowed into counter-dissidents amid the furious conflicts.
He said that he was appalled by the images of Nazis and white supremacists marching in Charlottesville and that he was distraught that an innocent life was taken by a domestic terrorist.
“My message to them is simple: you will not win. Our voices are louder and stronger. There is no white America – there is only the United States of America. You were not born with these hateful views – you can change, grow, and evolve, and I suggest you start immediately,” he wrote.
The organization – Simon Wiesenthal Center- whom Schwarzenegger has worked with for decades was named after his great Nazi hunter friend.
His main goal is to help advance its mission to enlighten and engage the people in America to fight hate and provide education and awareness about the holocaust and its aftermath.
Rabbi Marvin Hier, the organizer of the Wiesenthal Center, said Schwarzenegger had been a supporter of the association for over three decades and that his leadership was something they have never been prouder of.
“United, we are greater than the hatred we saw this weekend,” the striking thought Schwarzenegger threw at the end of his statement.
