    I have a friend, white, Jewish female if that makes any difference, who always uses the black hand OK emoji. It has puzzled be on occasion. Not so much from a racial standpoint but from a threatening one. Black Hand was a strong-arm criminal extortion method utilized my gangsters in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Arguably, it is still practiced in various forms today. I’ve often thought I’ve detected threatening vibes from this particular friend. Is it possible that this colleague of yours is trying to, I don’t know… make you an offer you can’t refuse?

    Wow Mack,
    Thanks for that deeply thought out comment. I may have to do some research into the darker elements of criminal extortion to accurately assess this threatening emojii. Thanks for having my back.
