Let's play Is It Rac... eh Never mind this is definitely racist.
@NigOldBippies, All stereotypes come from somewhere...
@NigOldBippies, how is it racist? A window would certainly fall on hard times because the loss of her husband's income. She would need foodstamps to put food on the table. No food stamps means no food means starving to death. If anything, its NOT racist because it breaks the stereotype of the black man abandoning his family (can't be a widow if you don't have a husband to start with). Its true fir any widow, but black widow makes people think they are talking about the spider so it is more humerous than just saying "how do you kill a widow?"
@thecorpsebride, the pic is racist, but your bleak justification reeks of sexism. Why do you assume that the husband was the bread winner? Can't women work? So in conclusion, you are not only racist, but also sexist.
@Matchbox Cars, despite media coverage, the economy is still extremely rough. The majority of working class households are considered "working poor" where the family struggles even with both spouses working. Add to that the fact that most lower and middle class people have little to no savings and no life insurance (or some but not adequate life insurance) it is not a stretch to assume loss of an income would leave a widow struggling. the money she makes post-husband's death still has to pay rent/mortgage, utilities, transportation, household needs, kids' needs....wages are low and cost of living is high. So, not racist or sexist but nice try.
@thecorpsebride, it is our assumptions that are a tell tale of our biases. Let's talk numbers, not feels. Median household income is about 54K that means HALF of the households in the country earn more. If one spouse, in a family at this income level, dies, the other still would probably not qualify for food stamps. My only advice to you is to be a little more open minded.
@Matchbox Cars, my household made 54k last year. More than half of that was my husbands income. If he died, my income is no where near his level but we would be alright because we have life insurance and savings. On the other hand, my sister lost her husband's income (divorce and he pays no child support) and had no savings at all. She now works a full time job but still relies on food stamps to feed her children. I can see both sides quite clearly. Being in an area where the economic recover has been dismal, I see my sister's situation being more common than mine. You are saying that me believing there could be hardship makes me racist and sexist and closed minded. You are the closed minded one who refuses to see that there could be financial turmoil for a widow.
@thecorpsebride, I'm hope your sister sees better days ahead. And I'm glad you have planned for the future. Good day
@Ich bin deprimiert , who gives a fuk. It’s a joke. Enough of the fake white guilt on this terrible app. Stop ruining it. 😑
It's time to play: *crows cheering in unison* "IS IT RACIST?"
@UberCharged Medic, I never knew crows could chant. I thought they just quoth "nevermore"
@Hurdles and Kebabs, "Ravens" but as you like.
@Hurdles and Kebabs, crows can do what they want.
@Rhyzel , oh, I suppose you're gonna blast me for supporting my favorite american football team the "Baltimore crows", too, huh?
@Hurdles and Kebabs, Not at all. I don't have any interest in sports, and didn't get the reference.
I have a sneaking suspicion that no one at stuckpixel is black.
@Whiterattler, I think they're a mix of Pakistanis, Filipinos, and Inuits.
I didn't know spiders could qualify for food stamps. Poor little daddy-less baby spiders all gonna starve to death. So sad. I thought this was FUNNY pics. Just kidding. I get it. And, yes, it's racist.
I see you pulled out a food stamp card from your Michael Kors purse but that's none of my business.
Yikes! This is... No... Badd. Shame on you, tiger.
*murder her family
Crafty and clever, but racist. Very crafty and clever, but also very racist. "Haha! Funny joke!....wait"
Is there a reason this community here is is guilty white...? I've seen racist pics towards whites, and no one mentions it's racist.... The phony white guilt is strong with this app.
Not racist, totally funny, people need to wash out their sandy cracks.
Wow.... Just wow.....
I don't think this meme is being used right...
You know stuck pixel is always posting questionable pictures when it comes to minorities.

Having a hard time accepting how accepting everyone is of this. It's not funny.
You can replace "window" with many other words and it will pretty much make sense.

Widow implies she was ever married to begin with
I went to two other photos before I got this and returned immediatley
To make it more relevant to the widow part, it could have said "you take away her husband's social security." Or... you know... how some people have killed someone and/or kept the body of the person so they could keep receiving the person's benefits....
