If I take down my flag will you pull up your pants?

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...



Dude/Lady,
At no point did OP single any race out.
Don't you at the least think the title is funny?

I wonder if chicks ever do get arrested for wearing lowcut jeans in those places where sagging is illegal? Or is it just black dudes and the counter culture who aren't allowed to wear there pants below there waist?

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 was enough to make my son pull his pants up. Sometimes a little incorrect information is OK.

But Don't worry, I think it's a really cool look. No, really.

Plenty of people have raped, murdered and robbed wearing Lacoste

I'm tired of people trying to feebly justify their lame positions when they're made to feel uncomfortable all sudden-like

And the world hates us because of our freedoms...


Too true... #%^%$&^%!

Thanks to Owlbear for reminding about the laws banning men from wearing saggy pants. So the OP literally just compared an imagined violation of the 1st Amendment with a real violation.

It seems so sad, these guys are so helpless having one hand on their pants all day.

I saw one fall on his face trying to play basketball and had to let go the pants!

Poor poor things as bad as women wearing stupid high heels trembling along on needlepoint.

I am not saying I believe the confederate flag equates to slavery, but and KKK paraphernalia can't be/won't be made illegal. Granted the state capital isn't flying it, but freedom is freedom regardless if others find it offensive.

Dude/Lady,
To me, it seems OP is offering a deal/trade.
Looks like many of you should read it again.

I have to go with Abe on this one. I would much rather see a Confederate Flag than some thugs dirty underwear.

No one has said make it illegal to own or wear.... The debate is 100% weather the state should be glorifying it.


That's making your argument on a completely different topic. Aka a straw man. No one wants any speech to be illegal.
