Just like me… from Anti-Racist Parent

This photo from the White House Flickr account shows a young boy rubbing President Barack Obama’s head. Reportedly, “The youngster wanted to see if the President’s haircut felt like his own.”

I don’t know if I could possibly love this picture more.  Not just the obvious of what it means to children to be able to see people who look like them in the media, their government, etc… this doesn’t look like a staged photo op for the media’s benefit. It’s very personal, very touching, and speaks so loudly for the sensitivity and generosity of spirit of President Obama.
