Emojis have taken on a huge role in modern texting, but have recently been accused of being stuck in the pre-integration era. This injustice was recently highlighted by 20-year-old pop-star-turned-civil-rights-activist Miley Cyrus, who makes the point that although there are currently emojis for various ethnicities, none exist for black people.
This began when Sephora’s official Twitter account called for more colors of the nail painting emoji, which is currently only available in pink.
Miley, a follower of the Sephora brand twitter account, saw the tweet and used it as an opportunity to call out a more gaping omission.
