I am all for freedom of speech and expression. I dont seem to understand why some expressions are out there.Take sagging pants for example. What is the significance of sagging pants. Is it a sign of gangster? If it is then i think it would be better to go back to the stylish gangsters.The nice suits and the nice cars and signs of money and intelligence behind the gangs. Pants down below the butt doesnt say style or intelligence to me. Can someone explain its importance and how it came about. Baseball caps turned to the side. I dont understand the meaning behind that. I can see it backwards. it can keep the rain off your neck. What does it do for you turned to the side. It seems like it would be uncomfortable that way.I am looking for the significance of these expressions. It is hard to take some expressions seriously unless they boost the people the expression is for. I do understand the bling expression but think its a bad idea..It makes you more of a target because others see that bling and want it. My opinion to expressive dress is the better dressed and styled the better attention you will get and more respect you will get. If the style is "sloppy" or "slobish" then people dont respect you as much or take you seriously.

Can,t tell you about anything but the pants below the butt . It started in prisons and was a sign that you were willing to let another man have at you . So when I see it on the street that is what I think of that person .

what does age and being poor have to do with each other. you can be rich and young or old and poor and visa versa so that makes no sense phil

Sagging pants are evidence that the individual has pooped in his britches.

I just found out that wearing your pants that way is a fashion statement. I thought everyone was wearing their pants at half mast because some rapper got shot

Saging was started in prisons in the 1940s by the Chicanos or zoot suiet,ers they wore sagy suites . So when locked up they saged there county blues. Also it easy to conseal a weapon . Like most trends the blacks copied cat

Nope. Milfred is right. Sagging pants are indicative of a load in one's drawers. Feel free---go ahead and $hit your pants and you will see for yourself how they sag.

I have spoke with quite a few people and it seems to come down to its supposed to be a fashion statement that means i will do what i want and you can kiss my [email protected]@. They supposedly do it that way so as not to actually moon people which is illegal. Kind of ironic if that is the case. They do what they want and are afraid of being arrested.

And another thing---what is it with wearing a baseball cap backwards? Are they too stupid to put a hat on correctly? They look like friggin morons. Many of those with sagging pants have their hat on backwards. Maybe if they'd pull up their pants and put their hat on right some of them could get a job and get off the public dole.

dont feed into donk's threads. He is just looking for someone to answer him so he can keep annoying people. Ignore him and he will go away eventually. Just like Harry Bawls did. I wouldnt doubt its the same person truthfully.
