Yeah, sure, you've got LGBTQ+ (I presume) in various colors 👩🏾‍🤝‍👩🏽👩🏾‍🤝‍👩🏾👩🏿‍🤝‍👩🏼👩🏻‍🤝‍🧑🏿👩🏾‍🤝‍🧑🏼👨🏾‍🤝‍👨🏾👨🏽‍🤝‍👨🏼
People in various shades of dark: 🧑🏿🧑🏾👨🏽
An almost completely black graduate: 👩🏿‍🎓
A black cook: 👩🏿‍🍳
Even black Santa: 🎅🏿
But the families are strictly white (and they do have lesbian couples with children, but not gay couples): 👪👨‍👨‍👧‍👧👩‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👦‍👦👩‍👩‍👧‍👧

You can find them in Windows by pressing Windows key + .
The first tab shows the traditional yellow emojis (which are pretty neutral IMHO), animals and the LGBTQ+ and family emojis.
The second tab is for specific people, like the Santa one, and you can choose a skin color.
However, that second tab only shows specific people and not couples or families.
Those are on the first tab where you can't pick skin color.
As I understand, these are "standard" emojis and so the standard is pretty racist and homophobic while trying to be inclusive.
What always irks me, is that WhatsApp regularly resets the skin tone of emojis (and also replaces them in the recently used).
It seems a lot of people are trying to push some agenda through emojis.
