Fight the Sag II

The NAACP has come out against Florida Senator Gary Siplin's anti-drooping pants bill.

NAACP President Adora Obi Nweze called it a "clearly discriminatory bill."

"In essence, it will criminalize the wearing of saggy pants and thereby provide a new avenue of interaction between young people and the criminal justice system," Nweze said.

That is an overstating on Nweze's part. The bill would suspend students that come to school wearing low-riding pants. It is still amusing how many people think this is a stupid bill. That might explain why it passed in the Florida Senate 28-11.
