Yankees joined in the fight against racism | Christopher Pasatieri / .

The New York Yankees joined this Tuesday in the fight against racism, quoting a phrase from the great Nelson Mandela, first colored president who headed the Executive Power in his country, South Africa, through the vote of his people.

“No one was born hating others because of their skin color, past or religion. People, if they can, have to learn to hate. Love, on the contrary, comes naturally from people’s hearts. They are totally opposite feelings,” he said. Mandela sometime.

The Yankees thus join the large group of teams and athletes who have joined the fight against racism in the United States after the death of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer in Minneapolis.
