There are loving and intelligent Black boys sagging their pants, and there are hateful and ignorant ones in suits. We are taught to respect men, mostly White, in suits who commit atrocities everyday, but we have to demonize Black boys and men who sag their pants? And If we are really being honest, the suit has a far more violent, dangerous, and criminal past than sagged pants. Black boys and men who sag their pants have not come close to equaling the violence and criminality of White men in suits. It has never been about what Black people are, it has always been about what we are associated with, in this racist society, whether in a suit or sagging our pants.
