How so? As I asked in an earlier posting, which Constitutional provision would apply?

This law was 100% passed because of racism. I know white men who get upset when they see a black man wearing his pants low.

White men can walk the streets of America in nothing but bikini underwear, while a black man is not allowed to show his underwear or the skin on his back. (this should send off a alarm in our entire country.)

Racism exists in most countries and this example of American racism, really shows me the insanity of racism.
Actions like these led to the horror of Nazi Germany, and they cause senseless deaths in other countries as well.


Hopefully one day all countries on this planet will make racism illegal, the insanity that comes with racism is just plain insane and stupid.

WAAACISM!

WAAACISM!!

^^This, this, 100X this.

When I see men in flip-flops I want to exercise my 2nd amendment rights.

If they weren't permitted to have a belt in prison, I see that situation as utilitarian, not as someone trying to establish a fashion statement. However, someone adopted it as a fashion style and it's permeated the culture of black youth for years now.

As I've said before, many of us (blacks) tend to think that there is one strike against us just for being black. Why add more by continuing to do asinine stuff like exposing your underwear in public? Unlike the naked cowboy in NYC, this isn't an antectodotal instance; thousands of young black men drop their pants to their knees and go about their daily routines.

Its a shame that an outside entity has to enforce something that should be done at home.

This is all around a bad idea. It increases contact of the police with young males unnecessarily. It criminalizes thousands of young males unnecessarily.

It doesn't solve any harm that is being done to anyone, and it I repeat expands government and police power to regulate and control citizens.

Now the people who support the law don't care about those things, all they know is that a group of people they don't like will be punished, for behavior that isn't hurting anyone, that is a perverse use of government power and of the police.

Again, many of these same people who support this police state like tactic right now are crying about the US government spying on Americas.

Yet they support this kind of unnecessary expansion of government and police power to create unnecessary laws that aren't about stopping criminal behavior but instead targets and criminalizes legal behavior by groups of people they don't like which leads to police harassment for those groups over something that isn't hurting a single person.
