Dude, that was a good rant. My pants usually sag, not because I am in fashion of any sort, but my ass fell off a few years back and it's been a bit of an issue since then. Sorry about that.

But you can take a bit of humor with you as you watch the "saggers". The whole thing started with inmates advertising their backside was "open for quick business". So while your rough looking crowd is looking snazzy with their BVD's showing, you can smile, and know what they don't.

That tidbit was given to me from a prison guard. He laughs to when he sees them.

Sagging pants have long been a symbol of anti-authority, anti-America, and criminality.

The practice started in American prisons and has enabled a "convict" mentality to spread from inside of prisons to the outside world.

Every single day gangbangers and criminals rape, murder, and rob wearing this uniform.

I'm tired of people claiming they want to end oppression when all they really want is to be the oppressors.

I'm tired of people claiming the want to end exploitation when all they really want is to do the exploiting.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.



Your entire post is ridiculous.... You do realize that a large portion of all races do the sagging thing...it's a product of growing up in the 90's (lmao) not being black...



It would be fair to ask to stop all the "black pride, brown pride and white power " stuff. Those are fair and no real difference between them and the confederate flag.


But sagging pants?!?! Really...

Funny funny funny. The only way it might have been funnier is if the guys in the vid were white-boy wannbes.



That would've been funny. But one of the most refreshing things I found about the video . Was that those men made that video their selves. Having a laugh at your own expense is sometimes the greatest joke of all .

Sure.

Cause saggy pants are hilariously more important than one of the most significant periods of American history.

If you can't laugh at all this it will make you pop blood vessels.

Plus, we decided to just pretend all that bad stuff didn't happen. It's all good now.

No sagging did not come from gays advertising in prison... It's commonly said but has no basis in reality. I've done more then my share of weekends in county. Gays are ostracized, picked on and sometimes raped. They are not now nor have they ever been people ANYONE immulated. Espeacially not the evangelical, anti gay black community. That's a commonly spread BS rumor prob started by some racist mad at gang culture. Who decided to feminize black thugs in the eyes of whoever their audience was.


I'm not making any statement tward you personally. It's a common "old wives tale". It's not like your the one who made it up. But still totally debunked.

Why is it okay to condemn the flag because racists used the flag. . .

. . . . . yet it is bad to condemn Islam when terrorists use Islam?


When has the Confederate flag ever been a symbol of peace and love towards fellow man? Never, that's when. Islam, on the other hand, has elements of peace and love for fellow man even as we speak.

Guilty of what?!? Having saggy pants?!? I was unaware that the African American community had adopted saggy pants as there personal symbol!! :p

I made NO comment on your personal opinions, just said it was a horrible example for a fair point.

You do realize that's a complete load of crap, right? A poor attempt at propaganda from uptight people trying to make sagging 'uncool'.

It actually most likely started in l.a. Because they used to take the belt's and shoe laces from people when they where locked up, causing people to have 'sagging pants'. Gang members then just continued this jail look outside of prison.

Anyway.... sagging really has nothing to with black people or gang members these days. It really just is a pruduct of growing up in the 90's.

lol, kid's these days have no fashion sense whatsoever, walking around in skin tight jeans.
