Hey Sam, hmm… I don’t trust the tech world to innovate without bias just yet, I suspect a few more mishaps are more than likely to occur first. As you pointed out in your essay a while back, photography and facial recognition tech had/has inbuilt colour bias. I’m ok 👌 with using the yellow emoji if there isn’t anything that represents me available, I’m not really concerned if people’s default interpretation of the yellow ones is ‘white’… that’s their issue I guess. I think the yellow is intended to be neutral tbh, there’s no side eyeing from me if any man, woman of any race uses the yellow ones. Thanks for sharing 🌻
