Petition for an African American Flag Emoji

This petition had 344 supporters

In wake of the National Anthem protests as well as the recent killings of unarmed black men, women, and children by police I ask- How can one whose roots are in this country take pride in proudly showing it's flag? Now more than ever African Americans need a flag that we can take pride in. An emoji may seem like a trivial thing to petition for, but while many can proudly add their country's flag to their bios on social media, African Americans can only use the American flag- a flag that doesn’t seem to represent those of us who are of African ancestry but who are born and raised here and only have ties to this country.
