Better news than I aired on June 4th [see ‘A Sad State of Affairs’ below].
Today I’ve been working on a new post for All that Is and, again, wanted race- and gender- balanced photos for it.
This time I googled ‘entrepreneurs’ and, lo and behold, found a Black Man as the focus [in front of 3 others] on the first page! I've also found a higher number of multi-racial group photos here than during the previous search [for 'executives'].
Since entrepreneurs are a more recent phenomenon— in the news, at least —I’ll bet this site is a newer one than the site featuring executives and, probably, reflects a more current viewpoint. So, I believe, things ARE on the move—and for the better. We can hope that’s true, anyway.
I’m continuing to search through the site and will keep you posted on any good and bad news I dig up along the way. Or you can check it out for yourself at http://www.fotosearch.com/photos-images/entrepreneur.html. Happy hunting. :)
Wellllllll -- it did take 8 pages to find a lone Black Man -- but this one was, at least, indoors and dressed similarly to the other people in the montage. He also had appropriate props [family photos] in the pic. That's some improvement from last time, anyway.
And, a bit more news: When I googled 'counseling photos' I got a big surprise: very few photos that could be said to be those of counselors with their clients. Instead, relationships seemed to be the focus. All races and both genders were well represented. Lots of multiracial groups from 2 to several people included in each photo were prominent in this group and family member groups were featured as well.
Since this is a site people would be unlikely to stumble upon if they're looking for the photos found in it, I just thought I would pass on this information for other bloggers.
