#internssowhite: Photos of Republican and Democrats interns spawn a hashtag on Twitter

While the House Democrats chairman Xavier Becerra posted pictures of their Capitol Hill interns, showcasing the ethnic diversity among the group, House speaker Paul Ryan posted a photo with a group of mostly white young men and women who were doing internships in Washington DC.


"I think this sets a record for the most number of #CapitolHill interns in a single selfie," Mr Ryan captioned the photo which raised questions about the procurement of interns and the ethnic diversity within the Republican Party.

When compared together, the pictures of democratic interns at Capitol Hill showed many faces of colour. Social media users were not impressed with the ethnic diversity of the Republican group. The picture quickly spawned a hashtag on Twitter - #internssowhite.
"So much diversity. Look at all those different hair colors," a twitter user commented. "Not even one African-American"
"The picture of Paul Ryan with GOP interns is so white that I had to put on my glasses to look directly at it" another wrote.
