Ethnicity Considered in Emoji

The new update 8.3 on IOS devices featured a unique cultural variation of emoji for icons that involve a skin color.

In what seems like a consideration to cultural sensitivity, it is now possible to chose a shade of skin for the same icon, varying from white to dark skin!

Check it out if you are on an apple device and express in a more personalized cultural way.
