Photos are all contributed by photographers - not commissioned by Adobe. It's the stock photo contributors that need to be able to fix that. As I said, Adobe doesn't take the photos.
Having said that, if you see a certain type of image content such as you indicated that is not well represented with a good selection of images it may be your chance to make a little money yourself if you are or know a photographer. It costs nothing to become a contributor of stock imagery.
Thanks for taking an interest in my post. Your advise on opportunity is appreciated. I understand that Adobe does not create all of its stock content. I do not find the photos that are available offensive. I do think that there should be more variety that reflects the real world, which is why I posted my thoughts in the community forum. Hopefully the community will respond by supplying a customer need.

And I totally agree, Troy. Stock is essentially fotolia.com which was primarily a European service before Adobe acquired it less than two years ago. As Adobe Stock becomes more mainstream world-wide I am sure we will slowly begin seeing a more diverse selection of photos.
Two years ago it was even a challenge to find a good image with any text on it in English. That has slowly begun to shift as well and we are seeing more and more of it. I am confident that will happen with image content selection over time as well.
I hope you continue to enjoy Stock and best of luck to you in your projects.
