  1. “Diverse” Emojis – You Done Goofed Up, Unicode

    A couple weeks ago I found out that Unicode is creating new diverse emoji with six different skin tones. At first I was psyched, because that’s one less whitewashed piece of media. But there’s always a catch. I scrolled through the official images of the new emoji. Wow, five new shades of tan and brown, and they’re pretty realistic too! — thought Sadie, full of hope and uncharacteristic optimism about a more culturally open internet. Of course, as my eyes landed on the last emoji, my optimistic spirit was instantly crushed.
