Similar Race Does Not Automatically Equal Same Mindset
There's something comforting about seeing someone you can relate to from first sight. By now viewers have probably seen the photo of Jacob Philadelphia of Columbia, Md., asking President Barack H. Obama if he could touch his hair.
Now before viewers get bent out of shape about that "Key & Peele" video, people like POTUS love to have a bonding experience even if it's just to tease First Lady Michelle Obama about consoling babies.

No matter how many times news programs prove this, people still choose to turn a blind eye to the obvious. GOP advocate Crystal Wright is nothing like MSNBC political host Joy Reid. Tavis Smiley and Cornel West are clearly not on the same page as politicians like POTUS. Their personal values will always outrank their complexion. Sometimes they are similar. Other times they couldn't be more different. The same can be said for workers outside of the political industry.
