Texas McDonald's Tells Patrons to Pull Up Their Pants
By Sarah B. Weir, Shine Senior Writer | Fashion 3 hours ago

Sign outside Dallas McDonald's"No shoes, no shirt, no service" is a common rule posted outside many restaurants, but now you can add saggy pants to the list of forbidden attire. At least two Houston-area McDonald's have banned low-slung, baggy trousers. "The signs say,'Pull your pants up or don't come in. Try to have some decency and respect for others. No one wants to see your underwear,'" the manager of one of the restaurants told Yahoo Shine (he preferred not to use his name). He added that the rule doesn't apply to young children.

A spokesperson for McDonald's said that she had heard of the ban and that individual franchises are free to impose their own dress-code policies. "It's our understanding [that the restaurants] chose to do so of their own accord and to reflect what they feel is appropriate for their community business," she explained via an email to Yahoo Shine. "We continually strive to maintain a positive restaurant environment in which everyone feels valued and accepted."

While the trend might just be starting in Houston, Dallas City Council member Dwaine Caraway, who once served as mayor of the city, has made it his personal mission to "stop saggers" since he first ran for office in 2007. He said that in Dallas, the number of businesses, including at least 25 McDonald's, that have followed his lead "are too many to count, but not enough." Caraway has been speaking out against men wearing pants that expose their underwear and hopes to spark a national movement. "They show a tremendous disrespect for society, themselves, and especially women," he told Yahoo Shine.

In July, when the New Jersey beach community of Wildwood banned saggy pants on its boardwalk, it faced accusations of racism. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony member Bizzy Bone told the Urban Daily, "Are they talking about black people? How can they do that? This is racist and ridiculous." West Coast rapper The Game promised to reimburse the fines of the first five people ticketed under the law. Caraway, who is African American, insists that its not about race. "All saggers are not bad people. I'm not trying to stereotype anyone. It's an educational process." He added, "You change the attitude of people and you have a better, safer environment in the city."

Caraway even wants rappers like Kanye West and Jay-Z to back the anti-sag movement. "They should be the ones out front; people like their music, so they won't suffer from encouraging fun, clean, respectable behavior." He added that while Jay-Z might may wear saggy pants on stage, he wears more professional attire "to the bank."

While some schools and businesses have sought to slap bans on other clothing, such as leggings, skinny jeans, and T-shirts with offensive slogans, saggy pants are the most commonly targeted piece of attire. In Texas alone, entire malls have banned people from wearing them, as has the Fort Worth, Texas, public bus system. Recently, more than a dozen Houston-area apartment complexes have instituted a fine of $100 or even eviction for renters who wear saggy pants on the properties.

Once I learned of McDonalds' "365Black" racism program and their in-house program to subsidize black franchisees and that it was now groid food I haven't been in one of the sh^tholes. Say, have they installed 2" thick bullet proof plex at the counter? Hired armed guards at the stores to manage the black undertow? I wonder if nation of Islam's security arm can enforce the dress code and mitigate the Chimpouts!

Pull up the pants? Ha. Just serve them their order on the floor.

Why aren't you in Detroit? You know demonstrating the greatness of blackdom. Or did you mis-spell wise when you were in fact asking 'whys'? You're the stain that insisted polar bears live in Antarctica...just because you thought it so. Shheeeeeyit.
