This complaint is meant to address the lack of racial inclusivity of Adobe Stock. When trying to find beautiful black women, the search results contain a majority of white women. Black women are marketable, and we can be stunningly beautiful, yet when searching the term beautiful black women, the search engine recommends average black women and a majority of white women. When searching for related images, the results still recommend white women. Search the team beautiful women, and the results are of stunningly beautiful white women. The user does not even need to specify the search by searching for beautiful white women. Simply beautiful women. It would be nice if the term beautiful women contained an equal number of all races in the result.
Interesting observation. What steps would you suggest to encourage an equal diversity of contributions (since Adobe Stock is simply the sum of its contributors' images)?
This is entirely dependant on those people who contribute. It is not by design!
Curious! Is this "correct answer" suggesting that Adobe can not do anything to fill a void for black subscribers or promote diversity? Should we just say, "Ok, thanks for clearing that up for us"? With all due respect & kindness, that was such a privileged answer.
The correct answer is really the correct answer as this depends to the contributors. If you are a contributor and are able to upload pictures of African and Asian people, please do so.
