On Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas) tweeted a photo of a group of Democratic congressional interns. And it’s not hard to spot the difference between Johnson’s and Ryan’s pics.
Johnson is not the first to call out Ryan for his seemingly all-white photo, however. Both House Democratic Conference Chairman Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) and U.S. Representative Barbara Lee of Oakland tweeted a picture of their diverse interns.

According to USA Today, interns in Johnson’s selfie reportedly said the picture was taken to highlight the minorities who are currently working at Capitol Hill. And it seems almost every nonwhite congressional intern made the time to prove that point.
