When it comes to the design profession, there's a long and complicated history of "trendy" and "disruptive" design.But a new survey of more than 1,000 designers has found that a lot of the current focus on the latter is actually misguided, and the former is the wrong direction."It's easy to think about design as something that only needs to be used in the context of your brand," says Jason Luscomb...
Posted September 06, 2018 09:37:47A couple in an Iowa town is fighting for justice after a racist tweet from a Facebook group was found on their home phone.
Police say the tweet, posted Sept. 6, 2017, by the Facebook group, “We will NOT be silenced,” was in reference to a murder.
The post was made in response to the death of 17-year-old Jordan Edwards in August, in which he was shot to death by a white supremacist, according to police.
The couple’s father, Eric, posted a video on Facebook after the racist tweet was posted, in an effort to draw attention to the group.
“I know we are a little tired of seeing our community divided by race and gender,” Eric Edwards said.
“We have to get behind one another.
I know there are people out there that have no fear or hesitation in showing their anger.
We are just like the people in the movie ‘Rent.'”
The Facebook group is a community that has gained popularity after several shootings, including the killing of a black man by a police officer in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last summer.
The group is known for posting memes and posting photos from events in which people are seen on social media holding signs that read, “Black lives matter.”
The group has since gone viral, with more than 3,300 members.
The group is called “Justice For Jordan” and is part of the Facebook page “Justice for Jordan” as well as the Facebook “We Are Not Silent” page.
In a statement released on Friday, the Facebook account said the “JusticeForJordan” group is comprised of people from all walks of life, and that the group is “dedicated to bringing attention to racial justice and civil rights issues.”
“We are here for Jordan’s family and to show the world that racism will not stop,” the statement said.
The Iowa City Police Department told ABC News that it is aware of the incident and has launched an investigation.
