I’m a Nigerian and British teenager and my friend and I who is Ghanaian and British, felt that there should be more representation for Africans in today’s media, even in the littlest things like emojis.

we think that other cultures are represented so much more than we are, for example Asians have kimonos, bento lunch boxes, ramen and chopsticks Americans have the view of the Golden Gate Bridge, 3 different representations of the dollar sign and the cowboy emoji. Even the Greeks have the Greek vase and Easter island has the head statues. 
there are no emojis representing Africans besides the flags.

we care because we feel it should be easier to talk about things that are familiar to us without having to look up pictures of them online.
