@Raid, sagging pants isn't a "thug lifestyle". It's just a fassion. People, whoever, have the right to wear what clothes where they want, how they want. I imagine your a real Eminem hater.
You ARE NOT looked at a different way. As a matter of fact, people in the modern day are now use to people sagging their pants, and hardly notice it. I hardly notice it. Why do some people wear Vans and others wear Jordan's? Just what they want to wear. Race, or your little "thug life", has nothing to do with it.

Hate to tell you Zach, but you ARE looked at as a thug. You ARE looked at in a different way. Now, did you know the fashion (fassion) started out as a prison theme? Did you know in prision, having your pants hang down below you butt, is the 'bend over' sign? Did you know they are just waiting to get it in the you know what when they sag them in Jail?

As I heard it explained on a CNN interview, its a gang type mentality. It originated as a prison thing. Since prisoners are not issued belts, their pants tend to be baggy and falling off. So it would appear that todays youth think its cool to immulated prison culture. Go figure.
Not sure if this is exactly true, but thats what I heard on TV.
Maybe a "gang bang" type of mentality??

It originally started in the prisons. Inmates would let their pants hang low to show other inmates they are "available." I'm sure if these kids knew, they'd immediately pull their pants up.
Sorry to say, they know and continue to do it.

It originates from America, prisoners on death row are not allowed belts in case they hang themselves with it,so their trousers fall down around their arse.
I knew it was from the death row, I have had quite long discussions with people about it.

I agree that their parents are idots too, but "you dont see white boys?" Now who is the idiot. Color is irrelevant you moron.

Because their parents dont make them dress properly! And of course you wont see white boys doing that! And if you do, it is rare.
I yell PULL UP YOUR PANTS when I see it. I love saying that. LOL

I understand it's the 'prison theme'. That the inmates wear them like this and the popular 'hip hop', thug look makes it popular. Heck, haven't most of the hip hop, rap thugs been in jail?
inmates wear jumpsuits not jeans

It's just a showoff. Young boys and men think it's cool and stylish. I don't like it and it none of my business. They will have problems when their pants fall way down and we can see their privacy.
