First impressions is one of the most important things people think about when they first meet someone. Meeting someone the first time, and seeing their pants hang below their buttocks, is not of the best first impressions someone can make. Sagging is one of the main trends young men in our community have been exhibiting. It shows that these lads don’t care about what anyone thinks about them and how they appear to people outside of their normal everyday community.
The fact that District 215 plans on banning sagging and giving consequences to those who sag, is a very good idea to me. It’ll help them look better, let them know that there will be consequences for the inappropriate things they do, and also get them prepared for the ‘real’ world. Teenagers tend to follow any trend that their peers thinks is cool, these trends have become an expression to some of these young individuals. Sagging pants below the waist line, has been a very big issue in the community nowadays, the trend was said to be brought up by prisoners who weren’t allowed to wear belts, due to safety reason back in the days.
The trend has come a long way since then, the youth would rather sag their pants, then use an actual belt. Sagging, does nothing but make the individual look uncivilized, these young men walk around with their pants down to their ankles and think it’s fine because everyone around them does it. This negative trend has had a very bad impact on the community, in some places like New York, California and Florida you can get arrested for sagging.
These young men fail to realize that just because they refuse to put on a belt before they leave the house, they can easily be taken to jail over trying to impress their friends and trying to look ‘cool’. Furthermore, District 215 consideration to ban sagging and giving out severe consequences to those who sag is a very good idea to me. Unlike other people my age, am not against the new law that they’ll be passing at the end of the month. These youngsters should be disciplined and told the right things to do. Nowadays, these young men idolize all these rap artists, and all the wrong people. They listen to music that influence their lifestyle in a very negative way, our elders in the community have been fighting to fix this problem for a very long time now.
Letting pants sag to the floor is not morally right, not only is it public indecency but it is also just an immoral act to do. On top of it being disgusting, it’s partial nudity which can become a legal case in court. District 215, plans on fixing this unruly trend by suspending those who sag or even possible expulsion. Maybe this might help these young men make better decisions, and become more modest. Ever come across someone in the working world sagging? Sagging is one those things that just won’t get one far in life. There’s nothing professional about wearing your pants down your waistline, it’s just unethical and disrespectful. These young men fail to understand that sagging their pants, wont’ get them a job and will just cause more problems from them. Male teenagers are mostly given more distress from the law than females, especially those of African descant, whom are the ones who take part in sagging more frequently than other races.
They already get harassed for minor things, sagging their pants would just make the situation even worse. These kids should be taught to do the right thing, if they ever plan on going far in life. Children learn from their mistakes, but if their unaware of these mistakes, there’s no way then can correct themselves. All in all, these young men need to learn the inappropriate ways of dressing is just flat out wrong. I agree with District 215 and their new rule of banning sagging, many people might think it’s kind of harsh and that these kids should be able to dress however they want to. However, the District’s plan on enforcing this new law isn’t wrong in any way at all, they’re helping them in a way big way because when they go into the real world and go out looking for job opportunities, no one will hire a man who can’t leave the house properly dressed.
