Saggin’ deserves the bums’s rush
According to the author Barry Carter of the article “Saggin’ deserves the bum’s rush”, the teenagers are not respecting our society by the way that they are dressing. He considers himself offended by those youngsters who are wearing their jeans so low that show their butt. Recently he spoke to a group of teenagers who consider the adults making a big issue from it, but for them it is just a style of dressing. Also according to Carter this way of dressing came from prisoners who weren’t allowed to wear belt in prison and in result of that their pants were following.
He says that “it is understandable that each generation changed”, but this become to extreme. In addition he thinks that this problem could be change if some teenagers would disapprove that type of dressing. He mention that same males under females pressure may have the power to change, as Thornton one of the adolescent of the group he spoke said, “If she was (looking) good, and she said she didn’t want to be with me, I’d pull them up in a minute”, so he believes that the power to changed it is on the females hand.
Therefore it does not matter where this type of dressing came from, if was from prison or not, in my opinion many times it is based on where this kids came from. If they live in an area where their peers dress like that, they will also. In addition I suppose that the parent’s background education also counts. For example as professor Price from Rutgers mention that in the 1960s and 1970s it began the dressing down, so many parents who came from that generation may agree with that style. So it is also on parents hand and not only on females hand as the author mention.
In conclusion the author point of view is comprehensible but I consider also personal. I agree with him as he said that it is very uncomfortable to be around people who dress...
