Sag this

There is a movement in Dallas to get youth to stop “saggin’. ” This movement brings about a few questions:
1) Is it your right to wear clothes the way you want, or is this racial profiling?
2) Where did sagging come from anyway?

Those organizing the movement in Dallas say that sagging started in prison and indicated that one was sexually available. But according to Snopes.com–a website that aims to dispel Urban Ledgends–this is incorrect. It was really due to prison clothes that didn’t fit properly. You can read more about that argument here.

My question to you: Is sagging a fashion statement or just annoying? If you do it yourself, why?
