Jason White knew him and his friends stuck out when they sat down at Busboys and Poets in Washington DC the day after the women's march and two days after President Trump's inauguration. Their waitress Rosalynd Harris sensed it too, according to reporting from the Washington Post.

Busboys and Poets is a restaurant that openly promotes social justice and hangs African American art across the walls.

White and his two friends walked in that day with a red "Make America Great Again" hat, something that many would assume would automatically divide them from their waitress.

Despite this, White and Harris chatted excitedly.

Harris was still revved up from the march while White still buzzing with excitement from the inauguration. But despite all their differences and preconceived notions of one another, they had fun talking. White explained he was a dentist from Texas and complimented Harris on her beautiful healthy smile. But the story doesn't end here.

White decided to do something that came even as a surprise to him: Ppen up to a complete stranger and leave a pretty big "small" act of kindness. He left her this note on his 625% tip.

The note reads: "We may come from different cultures and may disagree on certain issues, but if everyone would share their smile and kindness like your beautiful smile, our country will come together as one people,” the note reads. “Not race. Not gender. Just American.” Signing the note, “God Bless!”

White told the Washington post the $450 tip was a nod to the new 45th president and a symbolic gesture in hopes that we could move forward together as a nation.

"We have to think about being better Americans, we have to look into ourselves and how we treat one another,” he said. “If everyone did a little something to show respect…we can love one another.”

Harris told the Post she read the note first and was so captivated by it, it took a minute to even realize the gigantic tip he had left her. "You automatically assume if someone supports Trump that they have ideas about you,” she explained. “This definitely reshaped my perspective. Republican, Democrat, liberal are all subcategories to what we are experiencing,” she said. “It instills a lot of hope.”
