Flip phone cases can help make a big difference in a day of racial tension, as a group of young black men in Detroit use them to stand out and fight for their rights.
Here are some examples of the Flip Phone case that has become a symbol of the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, and the nationwide #BlackLivesMatter movement.
The Flip Phone Case is a custom-made case that allows people to wear Flip phones while using public transportation, while also protecting them from the impact of street crime and the stress of living in an urban environment.
The Flip Phone cases are made of 100% recycled materials, and are available in multiple sizes.
A group of people in Detroit, Michigan, have created a Flip Phone “safety” case that they call the Flip-Phone-B.
They are taking to social media to demand the police department take the case off the streets and instead sell it to help fund a police department initiative to increase safety for black people.
While some have applauded the FlipPhone-Case, others have condemned the group as racists and called the group’s tactics racist.
“This is a hate crime, and we are calling for justice for Trayvon Martin,” said Anthony Smith, the founder of Black Lives Matter, in a statement released on Tuesday.
“The FlipPhone case, however, is a racist act of intimidation and hatred.
It’s unacceptable and it’s an assault on civil liberties.
The people of Detroit should not be used as props for racist acts.”
A spokesperson for the Detroit Police Department said in a release on Tuesday that the department is aware of the incident.
“Police have received numerous complaints regarding the misuse of this case,” said spokesperson Michael Woody.
“We are investigating the incident to determine if it is appropriate for a departmental response.
If we find that it is, we will take appropriate action.”
The case has been on display in the streets of Detroit for months.
At times, people have draped the Flip phones with their faces to block their view.
At other times, police officers have waved the Flipphones at the crowds to create a sense of unity and unity with the people of Ferguson, a city that has seen racial tension increase since the death of Michael Brown.
“It was a peaceful demonstration that we all enjoyed and it was all part of a larger cause,” Smith told NBC News.
“That is what we wanted.
This is about the safety of people.”
The Flip phone case was created to help protect people from the stress and stress of a busy city, as well as to raise awareness of the Black Lives Movement.
A Facebook page titled “The Black Lives Case” has more than 10,000 followers and is being shared by a group called Black Lives Matters Detroit.
The Detroit Police are investigating an incident involving an individual in connection to a public event that was held on March 17, which is the anniversary of the death in the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
A spokesperson with the Detroit police department said that officers responded to reports of a disturbance at about 10:30 p.m.
ET at the Detroit Metro Detroit Expo Center in downtown Detroit.
According to the spokesperson, officers arrested one man and charged him with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
Police say they found a replica of the flip phone with the hood down, with the phone facing forward, inside a bag and a folding knife in the back.
The police department is investigating the matter.
