The senator from Brooklyn, Eric Adams has bought once again the campaign of pulling up the pants. And I think it is a genuine concern . Not just in context of Brooklyn but any where and every where.
I came across an article on the wikipedia , which throws the light on the trend
An estimated 95% of the population thinks that when you “Keep It On The Down Low”, you’ve got a wild booty call that your main girl don’t know about and ain’t gonna know about it, cuz you and her are keeping your mouths shut. Keeping a low profile. Keeping it on the down low. Credit R. Kelly, the pissing pedophile rapper, for popularizing this term amongst scores of kids in the 90’s.
Baggy pants were a prison standard in the early 20th century… If inmates had access to belts, they would more than likely use them to beat the crap out of each other or hang themselves to death. Technologies like elastic helped fix this problem, but even today the style remains among homosexual inmates. They tend to wear their pants well below the hips, as this gives potential studs quick and easy access to their butt, and anyone can effortlessly reach inside and sample the tightness of their sphincter. In prison, “Keeping It On The Down Low” is a very literal term.
I was listening to the lady , about being asked ,what was her opinion ? she said ,no one should tell any one what to where and what not too. Quite acceptable. But will parents like there children going around like that , nope. That is unacceptable.
In 2008, President Barack Obama, as a candidate, also came out against low-sitting trousers.
“Brothers should pull up their pants. You are walking by your mother, your grandmother, your underwear is showing. What’s wrong with that? Come on. Some people might not want to see your underwear. I’m one of them,” Obama said.
As Eric Adams intention is You can raise your level of respect if you raise your pants.”
Yeap ! pull up the pants.
