Speak Out!

Hey beautiful ladies!

Ok, so let’s have a truth moment. Do you HONESTLY think it’s cute when guys walk around wobbling because their pants are  literally at their knees? Yeah, we don’t think that look is too hot either. I mean fitted jeans are trendy nowadays but unfortunately we  still have guys for some reason who want to show their boxers. Gross!

A group called the Black Mental Health Alliance of Massachusetts is behind a controversial ad urging black youth to pull up their sagging pants.

In the ad, a black police officer sternly advises against the divisive style by mentioning some staggeringly harsh consequences; including a $300 fine and up to three years in prison!

From All Hip Hop:

The video, targeted to young urban dwellers in Massachusetts, is the brainchild of Dr. Omar Reid.

Dr. Reid, President and Founder of BMHAM, said the video’s purpose was to address the growing issue of young men walking in the streets, without regard and respect for themselves and their community.

“This is just the beginning of our public strategy to encourage parents, schools, police, social service agencies, housing agencies, faith-based organizations along with men and women in our community to take a collective stand and tell our young men and boys to pull those pants up,” said Reid.


Do you think the trend of saggin’ will ever pass?  Do you think it’s cute when guys do?
