Same Kind of Different as Me is a book published in 2006 and written by two men: Denver Moore, a former sharecropper turned homeless man, and Ron Hall, a wealthy art dealer. The book concerns their reluctant meeting through Ron's wife, who volunteers at a homeless shelter. In a way, it could be seen playing both White Man's Burden and Magical Negro,note  but the reality is that it's also about their wildly different backgrounds and they both learn from each other. A film was released in 2017 by Paramount and Pure Flix Entertainment.
