The heartbreaking events of the last week have shaken the Dallas advertising community to its core, and the coming months will be very hard as this tsunami spreads beyond their walls and engulfs their vendors.

But, this much we know. The Richards Group is more than just one man and one tragic and regrettable moment. They are nearly 700 mothers, fathers, friends and co-workers now waking up every morning in the shadows of uncertainty. For 25 years, we have laughed and cried and rolled up our sleeves with them to create things that have changed our lives.

And we are heartbroken.
All of us at charlieuniformtango are here for them. Now and always.

And to Stan. Thank you for the company, the legacy, and the community that you built. And the immeasurable positive impact you have had on our industry, our city, and especially on all of us at charlieuniformtango. Thank you.

You have left your shop in great hands, and this community is 100% committed to them, and to insuring another 44 years of Richards Group success. We all pray that the agonizing choice you've made to step down may be accepted by clients as the change they hope to see and then the healing can begin.

What David Eastman said...let's go do this! And I'll add, let's kick some ASS while we're at it. Love you Tango family.

Thanks for the support. You guys are the best! TRG is going thru some rough times right now, but they are not close to being "done". They will overcome this.

Tango you’re a class act ....always!

Love you Tango family.

So well written Jack!

Thank You CUT!

Well said!

Okay, gang. Let's go do this.

💪🏻❤️

Thank you Tango!

I do not understand the outrage. Maybe because I am a person of color who does not partake in Recreational Outrage or maybe...? I would truly appreciate any insight that someone, anyone, would be willing to share with me. If needed you can PM me. I give you my word as a gentleman that whatever is said privately will remain private. For the record I dont see the problem here. Certainly not a problem the size that would warrant such a tremendous response. When I first read the post I thought the guy must have been revealed as the leader of a child slave outfit. Turns out he just said something that is likely true, in a private meeting and now the Recreational Outrage Posse has grabbed him by the P*&sy! What am I missing??

Had he said “it’s too white”....would there be a problem?

Thank you Tango family. We love you too!

Damn right!! Thank you Tango family!

I did an interview w/ @screenmag and got to talk about sketchy jobs I had when I was young, as well as why I'd want to play the super villian Mojo if I had the chance. http://screenmag.com/story/2020/sep/23/12734/

my love language is watching behind the scenes documentaries on filmmaking and getting emotional about how passionate everyone is on set
