I think it looks cool:
When can we expect one depicting a Hasidic Jew or a Catholic Priest?
I find it highly racist. Is Apple saying only dark skinned women can be Muslims?
I think this is the complete list
Ummm, some new one's coming out later this year
Ever wonder what those Japanese emojis mean?

So do I, Abner. :bigok: So is this book: https://nyupress.org/books/9781479894505/
And no, jhp, I don't find the emoji racist. Apple isn't saying that at all. (Are you?) Islam is a religion. Muslims come in more than one colour. Same as Christians - and Jews, for that matter. And Buddhists, I'm sure. etc. ...
If you look at the first link I posted you'll see that the people emojis come in a range of colors. You get to choose the one you use. But you knew that.
I didn't, really - I just looked at Abner's link. But it's a good idea.
The prejudices of long-dead (or living) U.S. Presidents are not a source of valid knowledge - and certainly not wisdom. Sample - this is about a more recently-dead President's antisemitism:

Obviously, a mixed lot, as far as tolerance goes, some of those U.S. Presidents. I liked Obama. Still do.
You rang, Bruce? :smile:

Not from Apple yet but I did read there's a petition to the company underway (seriously).
Thanks for the book recommendation. On another note, I think I am going to go buy some Halal meat sometime this week. The quality is unsurpassed.
You're welcome. Enjoy your meal.
