Because, you know, its not like I already spend five minutes trying to find the goddamn gun emoji.

Standardized unicode, or proprietary wank?
It's already bad enough that iphone users can detect non-android users, are we going to be some new twitter hashtag about android users being racist for not using the proper colored emojis?

That's racist, my bottom hand is white not yerrow.

>are we going to be some new twitter hashtag about android users being racist for not using the proper colored emojis?

probably. there's always going to be some *inist who wants some attention by pointing the finger at others. I just realized how emojis are the 2015 equivalent to clipart.
>>
This wouldn't be the case if they just used fucking generic yellow happy faces.
>>
How often does a situation come up in everyday texting where you absolutely must refer to someone's race?

I thought the whole point of emojis/emotes was to convey emotion. I'm 99% sure there have been studies conduced that prove that facial expression/emotion is universal across languages and race

Why is this necessary?
>>
Good thing all races look the same, remember kids, the color of the skin is the ONLY difference!
>>
>no blue eyes
>even on the hitler jugend guy

I don't want to be a conspiritard /pol/ack but they're making it very hard not to believe

You should believe

This is definitely some SJW pc shit they're pulling here

Also, they need to fire the retard who made the hands
>>
>>46828986
So people who identify as everything else but their real gender and race can spam emojis based on their weekly preference instead of actually using them to convey emotion.

Not to mention that those Emojis are inherently inferior since the emotion isn't apparent because they've reduced all the visible conveyors in size.

They look like psychopaths going in for the kill.

why am i not surprised that a bunch of autistic basement-dwelling neckbeards are taking extreme offense to this news?

Also, you hold an emoji and drag to change colors

As a Chinese man, can I complain that the Asian one is too yellow and be taken seriously?

It's actually disturbing. Not because I'm offended, but because it's frankly an unnatural skin color
>>
>>46829083
I guess jaundiced people need representation too.
>>
>>46829083
>Many people complained about the bright yellow skin tone in the new emojis.
>The yellow emoji would be offensive if it was were to represent Asians, but it is not supposed to be viewed as an Asian person.
>The yellow emoji has been a standard hue for icons for years and represents a “generic (nonhuman)” default

I really should read the article before commenting on it next time.
Still, if they wanted generic icons, they really need to be genderless as well. Otherwise everyone will think it's supposed to be Asian no matter what it's 'supposed' to be

I think the great thing about emoticons (emoji?) is that they were yellow, kinda like lego, is not someone's specific race, is just, someone, what's the point of this?

you kidding?
the color looks nothing like a basic yellow smiley also why'd you give a emoji which is obviously meant to represent a human the color of a non human emoji

I'm pretty sure they're just trying to control the damage

Sick racist priveleged bastard:

Not racist not priveleged he-man, 10/10, would bang:
>Oh shiiiet, there are black people and fucking YELLOW ASIAN people you know... FUCKING YELLOW...so we must divide that smiles on racial basis... to unite people on racial basis. So smart. Much tolerance. I dont even judge people by their color of skin. Except that times when I judge people by their color of skin to save them from judging them by their color of skin.
>>
Why do they all have shit coloured eyes?
>>
>>46828785

These icons look far more racist to me than anything.
They also look like they are high as shit on shrooms


Couldnt text-based emotion throughput be left alone in its pacman-like nonracial ways?
>>
>>46828785
>all are brown eyed

What the fuck. Get those feces eyes out of here and give me some blue eyes.
>>
>>46828785

This is like asking for racial issues, because now instead of having some fucking yellow smiles and shit, someone specifically has to make racial icons without being racist about it.

The problem here is that no country is currently nuking the US, with some country wide war and bombs dropping on you people maybe you'd have bigger problems again than race and gender diversity in ERRYTHING.

Soon even your army will have diversity so every platoon only contains one person of each race.
And then you turn into anarchy after Lichtenstein beats you at war.

Wouldn't it make sense for Apple to flatten their emojis? The current ones don't work well with the design of iOS.
>>
What a stupid idea. SJWs really have no idea what they're talking about. A yellow emoticon transcends race because no one has actual yellow skin. Frankly I think they should have just changed them all to green or blue so no one could complain.
>>
>>46828830
>Standardized unicode, or proprietary wank?
this is apple we're talking about, take a wild guess

to be fair, ms doesnt give a fuck about standards either, usually

i hope they make a choose your race thing in the system settings lol

When did they stop being called emotes and emoticons?
>>
>>46832198
When the iPhone came out.
>>
>>46832198
when did anyone ever call them "emotes"? "emote" is a verb.
>>
>>46832210
So emoji is like a faggot detector. good to know.
>>
This emoji stuff is getting really retarded.

Just for starters there is so much goddamn stuff now that you now spend more time trying to find a fucking emoji that represents something you want to express than to actually write it.
>b-b-b-but anon, an image speaks more than a 1000 words
Ok, A real image would do, not an emoji.

>oh! why we dont have emoji's for every "major" skin color?
ok done
>oh! why do they look the fucking same?
ok done, there you have. racial facial features
>oh! my ethnicity is represented in a stereotypical way
didnt you wanted racial features?
>oh why there are only male/female emojis¡ what about tra........
>oh! how about furries bronies hivemind?

back to the yellow smiley faces, or better yet, emoticons, because you know:
when you try to please everybody, you usually end pleasing no one

>>
>>46830310
The thing is the emoticons aren't just yellow, they're white as well. Why do you need to convey your emotions as a generic or a white person but not every other race..?

Just remove the white ones and keep the yellows to keep SJWs happy.

You can barely even see the mouth on the burnt looking ones. I can't imagine those are going to be used much.

I wonder if SJWs will publish a study about how oppressive white society is because no one uses the dark ones.
