Apple's new emoji palette...

..for all you Iphone users who have been struggling with race-friendly Kwanzaa text messages...suckass political correctnessTrust me, it doesn't stop there...

The new emoji feature a range of skin tone options and a new “neutral” default of yellow, which is required by the Unicode specification to be “non-realistic.”
Yes, there's something for everyone...
There’s a ton of new family emojis to cover off different family composition.
Well, maybe not everyone. Strangely, there's not a hijab to be seen... an obvious oversight given current geopolitical realities.

Take that, white privilege.

Yellow is "unrealistic"? I suspect that there are some professional grievance-mongers who will bitch about how that's offensive to Orientals, as well as the literally jaundiced too.

There's already a bomb emoji on my iPhone... Do we need a bomb emoji with eyeballs?

... someday there will be an exploding sound that goes with it as you scroll down to see "how I really feel".

Can they not make something up that portrays a slave ... that would cover the hijab and the burka in one swoop.

yet another obvious oversight is a conga line of naked feather-boa'd men... or, for the canadian i-phone, a smudging ceremony or a highway blockade.
