    Really where I see this shining is when multiple designers are working in various parts of a larger project. Eg. I may be working on a checkout process while someone else is designing an on boarding flow, two things that are entirely separate but dependent on the same base components. Versioning and managing conflicts has been really my only issue when using Sketch.

    Historically I've always done everything from the ground up but recently I started working on my own framework/set of tools based on the types of things I find myself rewriting the most often. Its mostly stuff in SCSS (mixins/functions/variables) so it doesn't add that much bloat to the project.

    I think there is some real irony here because no people of color are complaining about white people using white emoji. This is simply White writers making the claim that white emoji = white power and making the jump that by extension white people can't use emoji.

    McGill argues rightly that in opting for the white emoji, a white person is engaging in a sort of affirmative white supremacy.

    This is a silly conclusion to come to. Although I concede that the yellow default could easily be perceived as white, I think the intent is to match it up with the original smilie icons that have been a part of the internet since AOL.

    I also think that part of the discomfort just stems from the fact that its rare for white people to ever have to explicitly identify that they're white. No one on the internet is going to think you're trying to show "White Power" just because you're using an emoji representative of your own racial identity.

    just to clarify, the first iterations of the emoji that now have skin tones weren't yellow, they were white. see the iOS7 default emoji here
