The problem with turning Emoji into rolling-eyes political cartoons is it gives an impression that Google thinks they can please 'progressives' at all. Progressive/regressive liberals are the hardest to satisfy at best and at worst are vapid witch hunters.

It was a mistake to complicate f*ckin' cartoon dots.

I stopped using emoji when Apple and Google forced a political narrative to appeal to the liberal scientists and social justice warriors (also known as fat hypocrites).

Great! I love android but hate their emoji's . If anything Google should buy out Emoji One or atleast partner with them. I use Emoji ONE in my texting app (Textra) and in my opinion they have the best emoji design

Thank goodness. I hated those yellow gumdrops. At least when I use LG with SwiftKey, it doesn't show that. It is the more common and rounded happy faces.

What I like is the national flag emojis. I have my national flag next to my name on top of my LG V20. I would love to see a Michael Jordan Jumpman logo and also the Playboy bunny logo next...

A nice thing that they want to emphasize the informational part of the emojis, as many can look quite close on a high-dpi display, if the font size is small.

And GREAT if they keep the emojis yellow!!
The SMART thing would be if the emojis was SENT neutral, and each user could choose the LOCAL display skin hue as they prefer!!!

It is SO silly to walk the aPple path of making an emoji a racial statement. Sure people of the same hue can use that hue among themselves, but as soon as the communication gets interracial it could be misinterpreted. If a palish pink Caucasian send a black emoji with a big grin to someone, how can we be sure this is interpreted neutral friendly in the receiving end, and not as the old condescending stereotype send by a red-neck ??
