Survived. Emoji "Ok" added to the list of hate symbols


It’s scary to live.

Emoji “Ok” has been added to the list of hate symbols, which contains a swastika, a burning cross of the Ku Klux Klan and other similar symbols. The smiley was recognized by the racist American anti-hatred Anti-Defamation League (ADL) group. This was reported by the BBC, citing representatives of the organization.

According to representatives of the Anti-Defamation League, the emoji “Ok” symbolizes “a sincere expression of the superiority of whites.” Because of this, it was decided to add a smiley to the list of “hate symbols”, which now includes more than 200 entries.

The reason that the “Ok” emoji is recognized as racist is that the position of the fingers is similar to the letters W and P. The three straight fingers are in the shape of the letter W, and the connected thumb and forefinger symbolize the letter P. Together, the letters form the abbreviation WP, which can be deciphered as “ White Power. "

It is noteworthy that initially the “Ok” emoji was called racist by Internet users only for fun. However, during 2019, human rights activists considered a real threat in an Internet meme.

The Unicode consortium and Apple and Google currently have not commented on the inclusion of emoji “Ok” in the list of hate symbols.

Earlier in Russia, for the first time in several months, there were large discounts on original Apple iPhone cases.
