I was a youngster when saggin' in public started to be en vogue and even then I could never get it and never did it. Now I was not a "square" (defined by where I rolled in the day, could have been to others in other locales) but I never got that ish or the Kriss Kross pants to the back ish or ABC inside out ish either. Although the saggin' craze seemed to have stuck for some reason.

I'll quote Eddie Griffin here... "Saggin' is for faggin'."

yeah.. but the hardest dudes on the block are saggin.. in fact, you're more likely to catch a bullet from somebody saggin than anyone else.. and the finest women on the block are all over them dudes.. so the saggin is for faggin mantra might sound like a nice representation of how folks feel about it.. but it's not accurate.. and if anything.. it's just an older generations criticism of a younger generation.. Let's not forget that clown suits Eddie griffin used to wear in his younger days.

Truth is.. Saggin is not different than Zoot Suiting.. or Afros.. or Dreads and daishikis.. all of these things are responses to society.. whether you like it or not doesn't really mean that much. I remember saggin my 501s back in the 80s.. you had to buy them big.. because they were shrink to fit.. and we were Jr. High kids.. growing every week.. and if you grew out of your favorite pants, you still wanted to wear them.. so you loosed the belt and pushed them down a little bit.. and you let your shirt hang low. I remember.. there was a certain way we liked our pants to sit on our Nikes.. prounouced:"Nighkees".. or our Karate slippers.. I had nothing whatsover to do with prison.. It had to do with growing out of expensive clothes.. Jordache Jeans were $80 back in the mid eighties.. Calvin Klein.. Polo.. it was the age of designer jeans. And as 12 and 13 year old kids we were creatively working with what our mamas gave us.. so when the jeans got faded enough.. we would take them to the cleaners and have creases sewed in.. when New York Style Bomber Jackets hit the streets.. we were all wearing Bombers with fur around the hood.. slightly saggin jeans and Addidas or Nikes.. or the new soft-leather Reeboks.. And wouldn't you know.. we was targeted by the cops then too.. The truth is.. black men in every generation are targeted regardless of what they are wearing.. King and Shabazz caught bullets while wearing suits. Every generation creates their own look.. and it must be different than the previous generation.. and things go further and further.. some dudes sag all the way down to mid thigh.. but why? figuring out what that means is far more useful than breaking out the condemnation blanket. Throughout history the lowest of the low-lifes have been the best dressed. The German army was superbly dressed.. The biggest crooks and killers in america are wearing 1000 dollar suits. The saggin is really just another excuse to criticise black men.. and black men embrace it as a symbol of rebellion.. You can barely find jeans that don't look like they're saggin even when they are up. They drop the pockets now to give them a saggin look.. And for what it's worth.. my pants are saggin right now.. cause I'm comfortable and I don't like belts.. and I've always preferred loose clothes.. except during the tapered pants craze of the late 80s where we all was slicing the seems our pants and sewing our pants into a skinner profile.

anyway.. with all of that said..

I thought the video did a nice job of illustrating its point. The first thing the dude did in every scenario was pull up his pants..

People use to just wear BAGGY PANTS, now they are wearing small pants beneath their *** and small shirts. That guy should have been arrested.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
