Unfortunate search result in Adobe Stock

Today, I searched Stock for "Black family walking" images. Here's one of the results. I think the algorithm needs a serious adjustment. This is hurtful and demoralizing. I lost a lot of respect for Adobe. Algorithms do not make themselves and they can be told what not to include. I believe something major would be done quickly if a search for "White family Walking," pulled up pictures of crackers. African Americans and the association, by some, with monkeys has become a problem and an inside joke in some circles. You don't expect that circle here. I was happy, until today, with the great variety of stock featuring black people. There's far more on Adobe than on many other stock services. It is my hope that action will be taken and that people won't waste time defending this terrible lapse in techno-judgement.
