The Unicode Consortium is working on the list of emojis that will be added to Unicode 12 in 2019, and today Emojipedia shared some details on new emoji candidates that have been suggested for inclusion.

New candidates for Unicode 12 include service dog, deaf people, and mixed race couples.

Because the list of emojis has not yet been finalized, these new emoji candidates won't be included for sure, but they could make their way onto various platforms that support emoji if the Unicode Consortium ultimately approves them.

These new emoji candidate suggestions join other emoji suggested for 2019, including diving mask, waffle, Hindu temple, white heart, ice cube, sloth, flamingo, skunk, ballet shoes, falafel, onion, garlic, otter, and more.

A full list of Unicode 12 emoji candidates is available from Emojipedia.

Apple will likely add the Unicode 12 emoji to iOS, macOS, and Apple Watch devices sometime in the fall of 2019.

At the current time, we're waiting on the addition of Unicode 11 emojis, which Apple said it will add to iOS later this year.

Apple previewed many of the new emoji that it plans to add, including red hair, gray hair, curly hair, cold face, party face, face with hearts, superheroes, kangaroo, peacock, parrot, lobster, mango, lettuce, cupcake, and more.

A few proposals have been made for emojis coming in 2020 and were announced by the Unicode Consortium today, including ninja, military helmet, mammoth, feather, dodo, magic wand, carpentry saw, and screwdriver.

The SJW CEO Tim Cook made a big mistake by bringing skin color into emojis. The original lemon-yellow emoji faces existed because no human has lemon-yellow skin, and thus all humans can be represented by lemon-yellow emojis in a neutral and non-racist way.

Including skin color in emojis just spreads this diseased practice of American race-consciousness all over the world.

Now, with these varied skin color emojis, people can use those emojis to make racist jokes and comments. Back when there were only lemon yellow-colored emoji faces, those lemon yellow-colored emoji faces couldn’t be used for racist jokes and comments.

It’s disappointing and inappropriate that Tim Cook is using Apple to try and further his SJW agenda. If he is trying to lessen racism by doing so, he has failed and only served to increase it with the inclusion of race-conscious emojis.

Is this the annual thread where backwards right-wing conservatives that made the mistake of believing they're the only extant culture complain about losing their culture because a subculture is getting attention that they feel they shouldn't?

Apparently yes, yes it is.

This site has a serious problem with these kinds of people.

I mean, don't you conservatives get tired of complaining every time new emojis are introduced?

How are the words gay and deaf hate speech?

Unless you’re being sarcastic. I can’t tell anymore on here.
Everything is hate speech nowadays, including “everything”.
