Over the weekend, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture was opened in Washington, D.C., and both the Bush and Obama family were in attendance for the historic moment.

Former President George W. Bush was joined by Barack Obama, and the two officially dedicated the museum together in a lighthearted and fun event that saw both families put politics aside and enjoy the moment together as Americans. However, one incident in particular has caught a lot of attention across the web, and while most people see it as an awesome moment between two presidents, there’s undoubtedly going to be social justice warriors who perceive it as racist.

Towards the end of the ceremony, President Bush was attempting to take a selfie with a black family that was in attendance when he noticed a young girl standing with them wouldn’t make it into the frame. Apparently not thinking anything of it, he casually turned and tapped Obama on the back and had him snap the photo.

The endearing moment was caught on video:

Pretty cool isn’t it? Reactions were mixed, but most people saw it as the two just having a little fun, politics aside.

Later on, Bush posted the photo online with a caption that reminds us all that regardless if you agree with his policies or not, Bush is still a class act.
