In the world of politics, images go a long way and that’s why it’s super important to think twice before putting up clicks on social media.
Paul Ryan, a prominent Speaker of the House went about uploading a selfie that he felt was hip and cool. Clearly, it was a giant panoramic image of all the interns from Capitol Hill. Moreover, the speaker even went ahead boasting on how it was an image that had the greatest number of interns to ever be included in a single picture. But little did he know, he was missing out on something.

Putting up the picture to his Instagram account, it went viral in no time. However, his large fan following on social media was quick to notice something fairly odd about the photograph, that even the house speaker himself failed to notice. Do you see it?
Well, in case you don’t, here’s the reveal. All of the shiny, happy, and smiling faces of individuals were white!
Shockingly, it was quite concerning for a lot of people to comprehend how Ryan thought there was nothing wrong with all the faces belonging to white people. It was obvious how racial diversity was not prevalent at all. Moreover, no one else from his team noticed that an in case they did, there was nothing they did that proved they cared.
While it may not seem like a huge deal to many of us out there, he is in Capitol Hill, and the fact that issues relating to racial diversity actually exist is quite worrisome.
We agree that having all white interns is no sin. However, here, the major thing that Ryan missed out on was a lack of racial representation in today’s time, which many critics term to be a huge symptom of poor racial relations in the US. It’s no wonder why the picture became infamous recalled as the ‘blinding selfie’ in no time.
