Why?  Did they say something about Obama's policies?

Is it racist to not be all inclusive all the time?
 
2013-08-23 03:32:34 PM
I don't think a thing can have thoughts and opinions.
 
2013-08-23 03:32:36 PM
I'm starting to think that there is a segment of the population that thinks everything is racist.

You gotta admit, some do look like squinty Asians.

Forgive me but who looks at faces called "emoji" created in Japan and thinks, "Whoa, those must be showing white people?

The real racism is you pointing out their over-sensitivity to racism.
 
2013-08-23 03:34:48 PM
Then get off your fat ass and make some. Dumbass!

Yes they are.  There's a poop emoji that no Caucasoid would ever ask to have included in their emoticon set.

That's a pretty slanted view.

Holy shiat, this article makes me want to go back to typewriters and rotary phones.

"CU L8R 4 drinks *martini emoticon*"

"No. Learn to type like an adult first, and maybe we'll talk about drinks."

As far as I can see there are only half a dozen caucasian whatsits. All the rest appear to be from China, or possibly Springfield.

I do think the guy who invented the smiley face should be shot. I have no idea what race he is.

I have been called racist for pointing out on several occasions how all white people look alike.

Especially old white people.
 
2013-08-23 03:47:17 PM
Yes. Mine all show up yellow. My Chinese friend would be offended.

It's not because he's black, I just don't like kids
 
2013-08-23 03:48:02 PM
It's not racism, it's because white people love emoticons.

/clown hat, curly hair, smiley face

All orientals are slant eyed and have yellow skin.

They also wear conical hats and have secrets on doing laundry (with the help of Calgon).

I guess it's good that when I do a smiley, it is the "wrong" way, and the little smiley face pictures do not show up.

I hate the smiley face pictures.

If this results in emoticons being banned, can any of us truly complain?

Got damb, those crack me up every time I see them.
