  Emoji skin tones are rendered as missing characters

Bug description:
  U+1F3FB through U+1F3FF are not rendered in the messaging app.
  Instead the "empty rectangle" missing-character symbol is rendered.

  These characters are the "EMOJI MODIFIER FITZPATRICK TYPE" characters.
  They are meant to indicate skin tone of the preceding emoji.

  I know that on the messaging app, all emoji are currently rendered as
  black and white.  I assume that is a design choice.  In the case we
  given specific color information, we either could render the color as
  requested or ignore it.  But in neither case should we show the
  "missing-character" symbol.
