Could it be true? Can a person wearing “sagging” pants be ticketed at GSU? It has indeed become an offense in many cities across the country and in Louisiana, including Delcambre and Mansfield. But Grambling law enforcement must not jump on the bandwagon of this harassment of young Black males.
Where there is a law against sagging pants, does that law also require ticketing of females with low-cut blouses?
Is showing “excessive” female underwear (bra straps, jogging bras, thongs, etc.) less offensive than showing “excessive” male underwear?
Is showing “excessive” cleavage not as offensive as “excessive posterior”?
What makes the cleavage of a woman acceptable but not the possible glimpse of a male buttcrack?
Are low-rider jeans that expose the “crack of the butt” less offensive than exposing male underwear?
(And while I’m on the subject of fashion police dictates, let me ask why females can wear scarves, caps and hats in class but males cannot wear hats, caps or do-rags.)
What is sagging?
Is the older gentleman who wears his belt below his belly sagging? Will he be ticketed?
Is the infant whose diaper or pull-up is exposed “excessive”? Will the baby be ticketed? (Is it OK for a girl baby but not a boy baby?)
GSU, please don’t buy into the harassment of young Black males. Don’t you think there is too much hypocrisy in this rule?
Please think before stigmatizing a fashion statement as a “criminal” (or “wrong”) act.
