Hey Apple, why no black people Emoji?

Added Emoji keyboard on my iPhone 4 after finding that it is a stock keyboard option under keyboard settings. Saw all the people icons but black faces are noticeably absent, and other ethnic groups seem to be bad racial stereotypes. What's the deal Apple?

    1. I just tried to look up this as well! I found nothing but racist responses smh It is a very frustrating world when ever blacks call attention to these differences we are playing the "race card" ... Don't they realize we just want to throw out the whole deck .. Unfortunately life is not a game

  3. Smh as a black woman I'm A-OK with them not having black people emojis simply because it worries me how they might portray blacks in the emoji world. This world is so insensitive to non-white races, they may have my people holding up a gun to an Arab or Indian liquor store owner smh. Keep the white people and keep controversy down. We got a black president what we need black emojis for? Lol peace, love, & many blessings to all!

  5. I'm a white female but the very first thing I noticed was the lack of equal representation for black faces, this is disgusting...it is 2012 and there are gay emojis. Smh is right and it's not about anyone playing the race card !!

  10. What i don't understood is in reality how you are not actually much more neatly-favored than you may be now. You're
    very intelligent. You already know therefore
    significantly in terms of this topic, made me in my view
    imagine it from numerous varied angles. Its like men and women are not interested unless it's something to accomplish with Woman gaga! Your own stuffs nice. Always maintain it up!

  11. There is now an app with black emojis. They have all the same versions
    of the yellow smileys except they are brown. They also have lots of
    black people and other cool stuff. Check it out free for a limited time
