👏🏼 👏🏼 This service is necessary!Cons:
Hey, there can be better names!
Loved the idea, I hope you guys grow and include more scenarios. Will use this for sure!
A bit slow, perhaps use smaller images for the thumbs? And add a search.
I recently had a need for good, modern stock photos of black people and it was a struggle, so sites like this make me happy. I'm just concerned about the weight of the page and how big (in size) the thumbs are. Also it would be good if there was a search/tag functionality.
Fills a massive hole in representation and image availabilityCons:
It'll piss some people off
Honestly, just try finding pictures of people in a web search or photo site that don't look eerily, homogeneously white. Most of what's available doesn't accurately represent my society or audience, and I'm glad that there's at least one new alternative.
Give people of color representation without a loss in qualityCons:
Needs more images tied to additional categories
This is simply outstanding!
It shows photos that can be hard to find elsewhereCons:
Please change the name. "Nappy" has a negative connotation to it.
I think it should be marketed as a way to get cultural photos of People of Color.
I think that would help with the marketing and overall intentions of the product.
We need sites like this to help promote the diversity of the black community.Cons:
The library still needs time to grow.
Concepts like this are great and I hope every ethnicity creates one.
nice to see a collection of high quality minority stock photosCons:

Providing solution to a real problem. There are seriously low free stock photos of black People on the internet today.Cons:
Wrong name for
Africa start ups needs this product. We constantly face branding challenges when working on local products. So thanks.
Quickly find images from and for black/brown communitiesCons:
Narrow set of initial categories, understandably so.
Interested to see how this grows and the community develops.
Necessary and well executed, beautiful photosCons:
Hope the library grows over time
This would be unacceptable if it was a service with only white people
Great concept, but I'm more an inclusive kinda guy. Don't believe in separate worlds for different colors.
This is pure racism, panda need to be on it too.
Everyone love panda, I think this website should collect panda pictures too!
Or you are pure racism!
