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.

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.

When it happens, it’s like we become spectators to some disjointed one-act play that stars a broken, paranoid schlep who can no longer seem to […]
