Okay, it’s technically not a BHM event, but Advertising Age reported Apple is introducing racially diverse emoji.
Apple to Feature Racially Diverse Emoji
Users Will Be Able to Choose From Six Skin Tones
It introduced same sex couple emoticons over two years ago, but now Apple is bringing racially diverse emoji to its devices for the first time. According to reports by 9to5Mac and The Next Web, in the future all emoji faces and hands will come in six different skin complexions and users will be able to change skin tone on an emoji, whether it’s a thumbs up sign, face or other “human” symbol, with a simple command. The new emojis, which will also include new “family group” emojis and an Apple Watch emoticon, will appear in OS X 10.10.3 and the beta version of iOS 8.3.
