They are so alike that people from elsewhere can barely distinguish them. Same happens with the other essays, the authors do not specifically mentions it but we get the idea from the reading.

They have high expectations of getting good jobs but get hit hard by the reality of American society

Comparing this fam-ous painting and America we can now tell the similarities, how from far or outside they look so pleasant and perfect but once you get close to it we see all those details that just reveal its true face....
