Pull Your Pants Up-Unless you are gay

This is the recent statements stated by Dallas Deputy Mayor, Dwaine Caraway.

The Dallas mayor's office, the city's fashion police and a gospel rapper have launched a campaign that they're hoping will catch on nationwide, letting young Black men know that exposing their butts is not manly.

The campaign, which was the brainchild of Dallas Deputy Mayor Dwaine Caraway, tells that putting a stop to the bare-your-britches fashion has been on his radar for a while.

“It's disrespect that has been brought about in Dallas and across the county," Caraway said, noting that he had just seen an elderly woman walk into a pharmacy while a "young thug" was showing his "filthy britches."

"It's a major problem. Who is going to hire them," he asked. "Is BET going to hire them? Is the bank going to hire them? Is McDonald's going to hire them? 'No!'”

Caraway told that he wasn't going to point the finger of blame at any particular group for the “tired” fashion, because these days, even parents are saggin’.

"This is not just a teenage problem. There are people sagging ... in their 30s. Where's your mind? You're not a teenager," said Caraway.

So how does a city government go about getting young Black men to rethink their fashion decisions?

This writers opinion is not by making libelous statements. These statements only cause to fuel the fire of a situation that for some is simply a fashion choice.
