BILL PASSES PROHIBITING SAGGING PANTS IN FLORIDA SCHOOLS
by Latifah Muhammad


Sagging pants will soon be a thing of the past-- at least in Florida. According to new bill passed by the state's House of Representatives K-20 Education Innovation Subcommittee on Wednesday (March 16), students are no longer allowed to wear their pants too low and "exposes the underwear or body parts in an indecent or vulgar manner."

Despite criticism from a local chapter of the NACCP, which alleges that it is targeted at black youth, the bill never actually uses the term "sagging." It also received unanimous support in the House, taking aim at the style of dress, displayed by many youth and adults. The bill theorizes that the fad was born in the prison system, where belts were not issued in an attempt to prevent inmate suicides.

"This pro-family, pro-education, pro-jobs bill provides each school district ... adopt a student dress code of conduct, a policy that explains to each student their responsibility," said Rep. Hazelle Rogers, who also introduced the measure. "This would make for a better school district and more productive students."

Oddly enough, this newest stand against sagging pants isn't the first of its kind. In 2009, Morehouse University banned its students from wearing sagging pants, gold grills and other "hip-hop attire," in accordance with its "Appropriate Attire Policy." Sagging pants will soon be a thing of the past-- at least in Florida.
