The BBC has produced a video that claims GIFs featuring black people amount to “digital blackface” while white people using dark-skinned emojis are guilty of cultural appropriation.
“Black people are not here for other people’s entertainment,” she says, showing GIFs of black entertainers Michael Jackson, Oprah Winfrey and Rihanna.

This woman is clearly rich enough to not care about anything else. Like everyone who raises similar issues.
You know I've never heard these degenerates rally in support of black people in Africa, ravaged by war & poverty, plagued with disease and suffering under the likes of Robert Mugabe. Not once have they ever petitioned the state to help those folks.
I didn't even know there were black emojis. All mine are yellow. Like the Simpsons.
To hell with the licence fee if they're spending it on trash like this.

Pardon me for mentioning, but haven't the blacks in America appropriated their culture?
Seems to me that all this hating on the dominant white folk is really quite ridiculous and bloody pointless if these racists are going to continue using ..hmmm...let's see...white inventions like tv? the motor car? cell phones? Hollywood movies?
As we say over here put yer money where yer mouth is or shut up!
Cultural appropriation my arse
