Sometimes Being “PC” Goes Too Far…

2 07 2008

“TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – The Florida branch of the NAACP says a bill that would ban students from wearing their pants too low could lead to more legal trouble for black males.

Orlando Senator Gary Siplin’s bill was approved 28-11 last week by the Florida Senate.

The bill calls for no criminal sanctions — but it would prohibit students from wearing pants low so that they expose undergarments.

Violators would receive a warning for a first offense, and suspensions from school would be issued for each subsequent infraction.

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

Other groups such as the Advancement Project, a Washington social advocacy organization, say the proposal is directed primarily at black males and could lead to arrests.

Now, not to disagree with the NAACP or anything,  but the only people this bill discriminates against is people who go around with their ass hanging out, and last I heard you didn’t have to be black for that. I’ve never understood this look. It’s like you are wearing hand me downs from your fat cousin or something.

Philly: thank you! Skater kids are what comes to my mind first when I think of this “fashion”…think the NAACP will yell about how its discriminatory against skaters?

Lori: And bicycling too! I saw a kid pedaling his Huffy up a hill with his entire butt hanging out (covered in undies of course)–his giant pants were hanging down in the chain and wheel…I kept waiting for him to do a face plant into the pavement.

How do they keep them up? Seriously…..somebody ‘splain, please!

I agree with Lori…..how do they run in them? Or walk for that matter?

They shouldn’t be fined. They should be made to wear bib overalls for a month.

You know, if it’s discrimination to pass a “law” or “bill” or whatever you wanna call it, that happens to apply to a certain group, then aren’t all laws discriminatory..? Especially towards criminals – do you think the NAACP would take their case..? How about the laws about driving without a license..? Doesn’t that discriminate against all the people who have had to forfeit their licenses, and all the people under legal driving age..? Will they take their case..? Or the underage drinking laws – DISCRIMINATION ! ! ! towards all those under 21…It is getting to be absofuckinglutely ridiculous anymore! Everybody wants to snivel about something, and if they don’t have a legitimate bitch, they create one…
