    👍🏿👊🏿 All my friends are white, I am too. Bitmoji’s used to only offer a yellow non-racial specific alternative. Political correctness is always prelevent and it became necessary to give all races an equal participation in our ability communicate a virtual personality.. Enter the dark skinned bitmoji... when white people go to specific effort to transmit a black thumbs up or fist bump, is that an offensive race related action?

    I think it’s funny when one of my white friends responds with a black fist bump. You can’t do that without going out of your way to change from yellow. A black fist to white people says... I’m specifically invoking the black fist, because... the black fist is either more powerful or more funny.

    I think it is more funny, is that racist?

    I don't think it's racist, as long as it isn't used in negative/discriminatory contexts

    Racism is a very simple concept.

    If you have to ask such specific questions such as "is using certain emojis racist", then more often than not, the answer is no.
