It looks moronic and I despise what it stands for and where it came from. With that said I dont think goverment needs to start telling people how to dress. If your going to focus on these animals make it something worthwhile.

Last person I want telling me how I should conduct my life is another brainless elected official.

People, don't let your kids become politicians. Eat them if they do.

As a Chinese-Canadian who has never even THOUGHT about putting my pants on like this, so you don't have to mind what i say... but I don't think anybody should be commenting on the way a certain group of people dresses. If you people don't like the fashion, then just deal with it cause I'm pretty sure all of you had things that you wanted to do when you were this age that your parents didn't like. They didn't understand! Each generation has its own fashion and each race has its own fashion. You guys have a free country so why try to discourage people from dressing the way the want to?

Uhhhhh, Henry. They're walking around dragging their pants with half their butt exposed. A fashion statement it ain't.

A statement about the state of their DNA? Perhaps.

This would only be a problem in a country with nighrs right? If we didn't have nighrs, we wouldn't have so many problems. Figure out the solution yourself. Join the discussion.
