New Emojis Are Here (Sans Diversity)

Lifestyle

/ June 17, 2014

The last emoji update featured an array of families, couples, and even food. And we can expect even more in July when Unicode Consortium drops the new emojis update.

Their site shows only a “coming soon” icon, but it let’s our imagination take over with names like “Reversed Hand With Middle Finger Extended” and “Man in Business Suit Levitating.” Noticeably absent from the list, though, was a “Black Man/Woman/Child Doing Something Cool.” Over 250 new emojis, and not one will be a person of African-American descent. But with new ones like “Clockwise Right And Left Semicircle Arrows,” We’re sure we’ll make due.

Check out the full list of über-diverse new emojis at Unicode Consortium.
