Do you think pictures comparing Michelle Obama (and the dress she wore when her husband won the presidency) and black widow spiders are racist?

I geuss they're trying to say he'll get assasinated. It's not a funny joke.

why would that be racist?

That's funny. I never noticed, but it does look like a black widow. Oh, and it's in no way racist.

How do you come to that conclusion?

A black WIDOW. She's black. If Obama gets killed she'll be a widow. I may just be imagining things.

^ 'black' 'widow' spider.

The pattern is similar. Other than the possible black widow allusion I don't see the racism, or the funny for that matter.

Her dress does look like a black widow.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out if it had a double meaning. I don't really get what's racist about implying a president may be assassinated, unless you were saying he'd be assassinated because he was black.

Even that wouldn't be racist on your part, just the shooter's (or however they decided to take him out).

Unfortunatly, that would probably be the reason if he were to get assassinated,

FFS, why does everything always have to be about race all the time? It's not racist.

that dress would still look like a black widow spider if cindy mccain were wearing it

That's what I was thinking, and so I was originally confused by what the question was asking.

I don't think that they all are inherently racist, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were some racist motives behind some comparisons of Michelle to a black widow.

No...it's making fun of the dress and not Michelle Obama personally.

No...because...well...she does looked like one...
