I was doing some shopping in my neighborhood when I saw a young kid with sagging pants not just any ordinary sagging pants, the waistband of these pants were almost on his knees. And on top of it he had his red boxer briefs showing.
The pants were so low I could see the fly of his underwear.
This wasn’t a fashion statement. It was just disturbing.
Now sagging isn’t a new thing. I’ve seen guys wearing pants like this way back when I was in Park West High School back in 1988. Back then it was the drug dealers and the wanna be bad boys (simps) who had their pants hanging off their butts with no belt. Trying to be cool, trying to get the attention of some girl.
I thought they were lame then, and I still think guys who wear their pants like this are lame now.
But lately dudes are taking it to an extreme. Young men exposing their entire buttocks to the world. Or like the young man, I saw waiting for a bus, showing his butt and the print of his penis for all to see.
Like the guys in my day, these guys think they’re cool. They think they’re impressing the ladies.
All they’re doing is embarrassing themselves. Sacrificing their dignity in a vain attempt to get the attention of people who could give less than a crap about them. Giving their power away.
What these poor boys don’t understand is that the Sagging pant is not rooted in hip-hop. It’s not rooted in Thug culture.
It’s rooted in prison.
In fact, it’s a statement to other prisoners that a man is gay.
And that he’s available for sex. Those sagging pants mean there’s easy access to his anus. That they can get a quick buttfuck in a hall or a corner of the prison. That he’s on one of the lowest rungs in the prison food chain. A weak dude passed around from man to man.
But Madison Avenue and Hollywood tell young Black males who don’t know any better that saggin pants down to their thighs and showing their underwear is stylish. That it’s cool. They dress up all the rappers and sports stars like this. They tell these poor boys that it’s the in thing to do.
It’s all part of an insidious plan to brainwash young Black men into adopting effeminate behavior. To strip a Black man of his maleness and his manhood. To take away his dignity and self-respect. To heterosexualize homosexual behavior.
Brothers don’t fall for the game.
Saggin pants doesn’t make you look cool. It doesn’t attract the attention of the ladies.
Most females I hear from on my trips on the train or walking down the block say they’re turned off by guys in sagging pants. Most say they look GAY. Others say that guys who sag their pants look like a CLOWN. To many ladies a guy in sagging pants is a JOKE.
Seriously, what Real Man shows his ass to everyone? And what woman would find a man’s exposed ass cheeks attractive? What’s so sexy about seeing some man’s underwear and his dick hairs? What’s so cool about having the waistband of a pair of pants on the lower part of the thigh?
I’m sorry, but there’s nothing cool looking about sagging pants. They make a man look like a BITCH. Especially when they’re worn with effeminate stuff like low cut Pink T-shirts, beaded braids, baby blue sneakers and big hoop earrings like I’ve seen guys accessorize them with.
Are these guys trying to tell the other homosexual men out there something we don’t know? Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but are they sending a message to all the other homosexual men with these sagging pants?
Or are they a bunch of misguided boys just following a fashion trend not understanding the sexual connotation behind them?
I’m hoping it’s the latter and not the former. Because if it is the former we’re going to have some screwed up men in the future.
Fashion wise Saggin pants are lame. It leaves a bad first impression on people. It says a man is sloppy. That he doesn’t care about himself. That he’s a LOSER.
Brothers, notice how the most powerful men in the world like Barack Obama and Warren Buffet and the owners of all those NBA, NFL and Major League Baseball teams all wear their pants on their waists. Not on their hips, not on their thighs. On their waists. The well-dressed men who radiate power, make decisions and get taken seriously have their pants secured at the top of their waist with a nice leather belt that matches the color of their shoes.
That look has been the iconic image of success for over 100 years. And it’s not going to change any time soon. No matter what trendy crap the hipsters, meterosexuals, the thugs or the hip-hoppers try to shove on the masses.
The serious power players at the table all wear classic style. And they’ll all still be wearing classic style as these guys come and go. Counting their money while those guys are begging for change.
How many fortune 500 CEO’s have the waistband of their pants on their thighs? How many billionaires have their underwear showing out to the world?
Not a single one.
The people who sign the checks of those entertainers and athletes aren’t dressed like this. The people who own the fashion houses that manufacture those sagging pant young brothers pay $300 for aren’t dressed like this. No, they wear tailored suits with pants that fit directly on their waists. They wear leather belts to keep them up. And no one sees their underwear. When they wear their polished suits and ties it leaves a lasting first impression. It makes them take them seriously.
Brothers, the clothes you wear are a reflection of who you are. And a guy who runs around in sagging pants around his knees needs to take a long hard look at himself in the mirror.
Brothers, take back your respect and pull up your pants. When you dress like a fool you get treated like a joke. But when you dress like a man, you get the respect of a man.
