The Plague of the Low Rise Baggy Jeans?

Updated on August 22, 2009

Glendon and his wife have led church ministries, conducted empowerment seminars, and travelled to faraway places on business and vacation.


Why are our teenagers and young adults wearing their pants below the waist, some of them slung extremely low, and revealing cleavage and underwear.

My worst encounter with this despicable fashion which is helping to destroy the Black race was at a restaurant on the Jamaican north coast. Late evening with the entire family in the car and hungry we stopped to buy meals. The young chef had his pants way down in the new fashion, and I was horrified.

Seven years later I rode through the streets of Aston in Birmingham, England and was shocked to see a group of Asian youth with at least two of them sporting the far below the hips horror. I turned to my hosts and said "Hey that nasty style is being adopted by the Asians as well?"

"All the nations are wearing it. They feel that if they dress like that no one will approach them (in attack)"

The decline and fall of modern civilization, any civilization, is based on humanity's tendency to go for the lowest common denominator. The Black race has given the world many great inventions but why must the rest of the world now adopt the worst in Black prison fashion.

"I wonder if they know it's an American gangster thing with prison thing to it, popularised by black gangster type people."

"They don't care, they just wear it."

Control fashion, control the music, and you can make or wreck a race.

      Gene not true that is just a myth, the prison fashion comes from prisoners being issued clothing that did not fit.

      Yes, in prison wearing the low rise baggy look means you've been spoken for, as in you're someone's boyfriend.

      Bless your heart. Sadly, the planet is short of parents like you.

      despicable indeed, when I, as a parent, called my son and his friends on it I went even further with the "prison thing" and asked if they realized why it originated in prison and exactly what it is publicizing to all who see them dressed in such a way. Then I told them.

      It was amazing how fast they belted their jeans up to their waists :) yea! Score one for Moms!
