This caught my attention because I live and breathe Create Her Stock. As soon as you mention stock photos to me, I’m going off into a full-blown marketing speech about supporting this company. As a writer, it kinda bums me out when I write for clients who choose non-POC people for EVERY single image. What really caught me off-guard was a client who used white people for every single post, up until the post was on low income and teachers. Then all of a sudden the black women images rolled out. I just shook my head and sighed. I make an absolute point of choosing a lot of images as a social media marketer for organizations that I co-host events for and represent, as well as my own content. Good read.
