The niece of civil rights hero Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a message of peace and compassion after a white nationalist rally turned violent Saturday, leaving the nation reeling.

"I was blown up by the Ku Klux Klan in our home, but we knew that the goal was to transform the laws and transform the human hearts towards compassion," Dr. Alveda King told "Fox & Friends" on Sunday.

"Racism is sin. Hatred is sin," the pro-life activist stated, adding that she is a serious Christian.

"We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools," King said, quoting her uncle Martin Luther King. "I have decided to stick with love. Hate is to great a burden to bear."

President Trump received criticism for not naming the rioters as white supremacists when he condemned them yesterday, but King said the main thing is to speak to everyone about ending the violence.

"We've got to stop the violence," she said. "The president is right about that."

While removing confederate memorabilia does not immediately solve the problem of racism in America, it belongs in museums and in its proper context, King said.
