How to Get Rid of Default Yellow Emoji

Earlier this week, a friend pointed out that the latest Emoji update included darker skin tones. Sure enough, when you hold down some of the yellow faces or hands, a menu bar of a range of shades of brown-black pops up.

The group icons, however, are still only in the yellow option.

We debated whether this was a step forward or not on Instagram. Another friend said the yellow was an alien-esque skin tone. I read it as a substitute for ‘white’ (aka peach flesh).

What you do think? Progress? Or not far enough?
