Nelson Mandela once said: "No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his religion or his background."
And, his words could not be more true in several photos a social media user shared online. Taking to Twitter, tweep @danielmarven shared several photos of kids, who hail from different ethnic groups.
Despite having different skin colours, the kids show each other love- proving Madiba's statement.
"Children will play with everyone. Until a parent tells them not to. Parents are the one who plant hatred sometimes," @danielmarven captioned the post.
Tweeps were inspired by the photos and Briefly.co.za gathered social media users agreed racism was passed on from generation to generation.
Gadifele Mafoko, who goes by the Twitter handle @Iam_Gadifele, commented: "Nothing but the truth. I remember this one time I took my kids to Spur, this non-black child left her mother's table & came to sit with us. When the mother came to fetch her, she cried. Mother had no choice but to bring her food to our table."
Another tweep, @kharogladys, added: "True love has no boundaries, no restrictions and its language is one,that of love."
