“Which skin color emoji should you use? The answer can be more complex than you think”

In another example of the establishment left’s obsessive grift with race and social segregation, publicly funded NPR published a story claiming that if you use the wrong color emoji in text messages in relation to your own skin color, you are probably a racist.

In the article titled  “Which skin color emoji should you use? The answer can be more complex than you think”, writers Alejandra Marquez, Janse Patrick Jarenwattananon, and Asma Khalid (it took three of them to take on this weighty subject) argue that choosing to use a yellow emoji, rather than a white, brown or black one is “the neutral option” that will leave the respondent free to “focus on the message” rather than race.

Of course, any rational person wouldn’t immediately see an emoji in a text and start thinking about race. Not these taxpayer-funded hacks though.

They even went around interviewing people for the piece.

One interviewee said “I present as very pale, very light-skinned. And if I use the white emoji, I feel like I’m betraying the part of myself that’s Filipino.”

The interviewee continued, “But if I use a darker color emoji, which may be more closely matches what I see when I look at my whole family, it’s not what the world sees, and people tend to judge that.”

OMG, what a terrible dilemma to be in.

The article suggests that choosing a specific color emoji “can be a simple texting shortcut for some, but for others, it opens a complex conversation about race and identity.”

For who? Grifters writing for NPR and the mentally ill?

Sarai Cole, an opera singer in Germany (Yes they interviewed someone in Germany for this too) stated “I have some friends who use the brown ones, too, but they are not brown themselves. This confuses me.”

“She was not offended when a non-brown friend used a dark emoji”, the article states, adding she just “would like to understand why.”

The nonsense continues, “Zara Rahman, a researcher, and writer in Berlin argues that the skin tone emojis make white people confront their race as people of color often have to do.”

Rahman adds “I think it’s more one of those places where we just have to think about who we are and how we want to represent our identities, and maybe it does change depending on the season; depending on the context.”
