It’s a sagging shame…even in the age of Obama, they still won’t dress the part.
There are many inventions that we need to make our lives better. I would even accept a waffle maker that doubles as a clock radio. Some inventions aren’t worth the paper they were drawn on. The concept of “Supply and Demand” means that people need a product so you must make it. But this thing right here is the worst!!! Harlemnite inventor Andrew Lewis must be trying to make Black History. And that is saying something because Lewis is a White Man!!!
Lewis has shamed the ancestors of The Harlem Renaissance and created “Subs”. No!!! Not the deliciously hot or cold sandwiches that you can eat at either end!! Sub’s are suspenders that you can wear while still keeping your pants sagging. In layman’s terms this is an “Outside the Prison Gates” garter belt. Millions of young black men can now let their pants sag without them falling off their behinds. It’s especially beneficial to young drug dealers that spend their days running from the cops. It’s just what we needed: Another reason to not dress appropriately.
Just when I think it can’t get any worse. People somehow find ways to be more ignorant. This is the part where we have collectively thrown up our hands. We can’t keep our children’s pants up. Young men don’t want to keep their pant’s up. And some men in jail wish they didn’t have to wear pants (easy access). Every fad that is imitated by (insert generic urban name here) doesn’t need to be turned into a fashion statement. This doesn’t provide anything of worth to our youth.
You can’t wear sagging pants to a job interview.
You can’t wear sagging pants to the bank to apply for a business loan.
You can’t wear sagging pants to meet your girlfriend’s parents (unless the dad wears sagging pants).
And if you end up in jail, you shouldn’t want to wear sagging pants (easy access).
I hear my younger contemporaries always talking about how people don’t respect them.
Well you won’t get any wearing something like this. Even Jay Z is wearing suits now!! For all the black folks that thought an Obama Administration would change how young black men viewed themselves, you were sadly mistaken.
