Hey Your Pants are Sagging…

Sagger_in_NYC Sagging_cropI get it that each generation has a unique “something” that characterizes who they are. I was part of the 60’s gen and we wore large Afros, headbands, and platform shoes. I still remember my grandmother asking if I was going to get my hair “pressed” for graduation. She just didn’t understand us.

Well I have a major problem with our latest generation’s wearing of pants. Why do the pants have to sag so that I see your underwear? I don’t want to see your underwear!  What’s so weird is how can you walk with you pants halfway down your butt? I mean I’ve seen you walk, so I know it’s possible, but it looks so crazy. My real problem is that our young males believe the rappers started this trend and they want to show society that they can do their own thing. However, according to Greg Mathis (Judge Mathis) sagging was adopted from the United States prison system where belts are sometimes prohibited [1] to prevent prisoners from using them as weapons or committing suicide by hanging themselves.

So, young men: knowing the origins of the SAGGING PANTS – do you still want to sag? Just saying
