In the wake of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia this week, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has stood in defiance against racism by donating thousands of dollars to an anti-hate organization on Sunday.
The movie star and bodybuilder published a powerful statement on Facebook concerning the donation:
“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.”
“Today, I’m sending $100,000 to an anti-hate organization I’ve worked with for decades – the Simon Wiesenthal Center, named after the great Nazi hunter who I was lucky to call a friend.”
“I have spoken to its founder, Rabbi Marvin Hier, and I know that my contribution can help advance the Center’s mission of expanding tolerance through education and fighting hate all over America – in the streets and online. My dream is that all of you will join me in helping your favorite anti-hate organizations in any way you can.”
