Yesterday the White House tweeted out the following photo in honor of the 57th anniversary of Rosa Parks refusing to sit at the back of the bus.


President Obama really can't help but insert himself into nearly every situation in some way. Remember when he gave Queen Elizabeth of England an iPod full of his speeches? Or how about when the White House changed all of the presidential bios on WhiteHouse.gov to include an accomplishment by President Obama?

In terms of the photo above I can understand the comparison. Rosa Parks was the first black woman to take a stand against discrimination on public transportation while Barack Obama is the first black president, however, he should have published a photo of Rosa Parks on the anniversary of her bold actions, rather than one of himself.
