In honor of penalizing saggy pants and all things associated with this ghetto behavior and this behavior continues to be our downfall as a people, today’s featured song is the Hard Knock Life by Jay-Z.
I don’t know about you but I am definitely feeling Delcambre Mayor Carol Broussard.
Earlier this month Louisiana’s Delcambre city council unanimously passed an ordinance making sagging pants an act of indecent exposure.
All I can say is, it’s about damn time.
Mayor Broussard says, "If you expose your private parts, you’ll get a fine." On the issue of trouser low-riders: "They’re better off taking the pants off and just wearing a dress."
The possible penalty is $500, and offenders really letting it all hang out, including showing us the crack of their ass, could face six months’ jail.
City attorney Ted Ayo explained that the ordinance "expands on the existing state indecent exposure law by adding underwear to the list of forbidden exposures. This is a new ordinance that deals specifically with sagging pants. It’s about showing off your underwear in public."
No, it’s about not making people see more of you than they care to.
And of course we Blacks feel targeted by the new law because sagging is popular with us.
Mayor Broussard dismissed the claim with "White people wear sagging pants, too."
And he’s right. Whites, Latinos, Asians, and Blacks sag their pants, both men and women.
I just think it’s disgusting and immature when you have to wear your pants so low that your boxers are showing from top to bottom. I find it even more disgusting that women find that attractive in men. Attractive in what way, if you ask me?
Now I would love for Los Angeles’ City Council to entertain a similar motion. It’d be interesting to see the reaction to it.
There are certain things that have just become acceptable in our communities, and sagging is one them and for the life of me, I cannot understand why we think that it’s cute. You can dress hip-hop without showing your underwear. Ask me how I know…I do it all the time.
Maybe next we can get a ban on those thuggish swap meet corduroy house shoes that although are made to be worn in the house, seem to get to worn everywhere but there. And to make matters worse, now they’re making them in children’s sizes thus catapulting them into the thug mentality at an early age. Just a thought….
