Initially the child was reluctant to touch Obama's hair. So, Mr. Obama said, "Touch it, dude!"

Then he asked to Jacob, "So, what do you think?"

Jacob replied, "Yes, it does feel the same."

Michelle mentioned in her DNC speech that this beautiful memory is indicative of the role models the president and first lady are to younger generation of America.
She explained, "With every word we utter, with every action we take, we know our kids are watching us. We as parents are the most important role model. Let me tell you, Barack and I take that same approach to our jobs as president and first lady because we know that our words and actions matter, not just to our girls but the children across the country. Kids who say, 'I saw you on TV,' 'I wrote the report on you for school.' Kids like the little black boy who looked up at my husband, his eyes wide with hope, and he wondered, is my hair like yours?"
