  •  What am I seeing? (0+ / 0-)

    I see two black people, a hispanic person and a white person, grabbing for money in a house.

    •  I think you're seeing (0+ / 0-)

      An interracial family (black dad, white mom, mixed race kids, girl leaning lighter than the boy).  Overweight mom and crazy-looking dad are grasping at money (mom like she's trying to eat it).  Girl is counting money.  Boy seems to be feeding money to the dog.  Tons of money shooting everywhere, and from the facial expressions, this isn't "our hard-earned money," this is like one of those game show booths where you try to grab up all the dollars being blown around.  This looks like greedy, gluttonous, foolishness.  The implication is that these people are doing something wrong and that they've lucked into some kind of undeserved windfall.  With the background of the myth that the housing collapse was caused by minorities who bought more house than they could afford, the connotations here are that "those people are at it again."
