Very cool to read more about emoji skin tones in this new piece by and Kelsea Whaley – perhaps also of interest: my piece on the same topic published last yr, lots of similar points πŸ™ŒπŸΎ
While this paper makes some interesting points re skintones and emoji, an analysis of emoji and skin tones isn’t complete without mentioning work of Katrina Parrott (⁦⁩), the black Texan mom who came up with original skin tone proposal.
