Still No Black Person Emoji, Footwear by Steve Madden x Juicy Couture, and Yoga Jeans Are Here

Unicode introduced 250 new emoticons that you’ll get when you update your system to the 7.0 version, but there’s still no emojis that look like black people. The new emojis are here to help you communicate in a single character any emotion imaginable that our little yellow people problems create. In our hopeless optimism, we could interpret this as proof that emotion and the lexicon of emojis have no skin color because they represent the universal feelings in each and every one of us. But it’s not a very subtle kind of racism when black people can’t see themselves for the moment they send the sad face and cancel on you even though their true emotion is that they’re grinning like crazy because there’s a Netflix marathon and they don’t want to help you pick a Facebook profile picture. It’s cool though. We’ll just send Unicode an unlimited amount of emojis with furrowed brows to express our prolonged disappointment and they’ll get the message. (SwaggerNY)
