I came across this photo of U.S. President Barack Obama yesterday. Apparently a black boy was invited to the White House and asked Obama if he could touch his hair to see if it was like his.

So cute!

very touching photo. I love President O.


Wow, powerful stuff.


He is adorable. How odd that Obama's hair would be the thing he'd be curious about. Odd and kinda sad.


🙂 What a cutie!
