what gets me is, everybody knows saggy pants are tacky, even the ncacp. but its not the saggy pants that the problem, the whole issue is, if you are white you cannot tell a black man, anything..........its doesnt matter if right or wrong, it not politcal correct for a white man to tell a black man anything

so the ncacp are fighting this, just because a white council came out and say, sir could you please pull up your pants. whites are not allow to make any regulation that affects the black community no matter what the issue is.

My favorite is when Southerners protest racist depictions as being stereotypical. Before you think you are being stereotyped, refer to this article.

OK, interesting, but what a horrible click bait site. Hate all those ads. Consider a different link next time.

Wasn't aware that baggy pants were still a problem in 2015.

I once saw a fight on you-tube between two saggy panted dudes. In between punching each other they were pulling up their pants...it was pretty hilarious!

If girls and women refuse to date or have sex with men and boys who dress this way then this bad fad would vanish quickly. If these boys had fathers in their lives then most of them wouldn't dress like that.

Some statistics for Laurel, Mississippi:

Approximately 25 percent of its 18,000 residents live below the poverty line.

The median family income is $25,988.

The unemployment rate is about 7%.

Crime rates are way higher than the US average.

And the locals are worried about pants. ****ing brilliant.

As for the kids, that fad is losing its steam--at least in those parts of the country where it's 2015
The plumber is making great money for that show.
