A problem with the miniatures industry.

Their are usually two motivitations for creating a certain miniature (or any other piece of art): a desire to create it and getting paid for creating it. So, either find an artist that is willing to create what you want or start modelling yourself. Create a Kickstarter for stl files, printed minis or both. If you are afraid of being unable to fulfill too many orders, make it a limited run.
If you are succesful, you can propose your idea to a manufacturer like Reaper or WizKids, being able to present actual demand instead of hypothetical one.

I agree that people would like minis that represent their demographic. People of colour and sensible women were missing from my fantasy minis box.

However.. this is fantasy, and I wanted to be able to offer minis to anyone to play "anyone".

I want to play a black female halfling with hob-nail boots..

You're in luck, desktophero3d and HeroForge is offering exactly that and resin has gotten quite affordable. Some health hazards remain, but there are also print services.
