LONDON - A black British lawmaker apologised Thursday for a Twitter comment saying that white people "love playing divide and rule", a day after two men were jailed for the country's most notorious race murder. Labour MP Diane Abbott, the public health spokesman for Britain's main opposition party, made the comment during a conversation about the sentencing of the white men for the killing in 1993 of black teenager Stephen Lawrence. "White people love playing 'divide & rule'. We should not play their game," she said in a tweet on the social networking site.
