The subtle yet glaring distinction of being different





President Barack Obama wore a tan suit and social media started a national dialogue on why, what it meant, was it appropriate and how he was just so different from previous presidents. I think it has been documented that he wasn’t the first president to ever wear a tan suit. I saw a recent link on the Atlanta Journal Constitution site that caught my eye because it said “Atlanta, meet your mayors”. One glance at the photos and I immediately saw the difference. I would assume the photos of the men in business attire were actual photos of them as mayors, mine however was clearly years before I ran for office and not a photo of me as mayor. Sometimes the subtly of being different isn’t that subtle.
