Sounds like a lot of fun. I wasn't aware that there were many Spanish blacks in the area, although I do know that in California the Mexican-Americans like their low riders, an interesting custom, I guess. If you really meant to say Spanish, blacks, and whites, your comments raise the question where are all the Spanish? España is a pretty nice country and I wasn't aware of any large numbers of Spanish-Americans in the area. In any event, ones origin and race should not be a factor in the day's outing. Feel comfort in knowing that officials will make video and photos of the event and use facial recognition and tattoo software to identify the criminals.

I for one am generally agaist low riders, unless they are worn by a very hot chick. Other communities are outlawing them all together. This is from the International Herald Tribune:

In U.S., a backlash against sagging jeans
By Niko Koppel
Thursday, August 30, 2007


Jamarcus Marshall, a 17-year-old high school sophomore in Mansfield, Louisiana, says he believes that no one should be able to tell him how high to wear his jeans. "It's up to the person who's wearing the pants," he said.

Marshall's sagging pants, a style popularized in the early 1990s by hip-hop artists, are becoming a criminal offense in a growing number of communities, including his own.

Starting in Louisiana, an intensifying push by lawmakers has decided that pants worn low enough to expose underwear poses a threat to the public, and they have enacted indecency ordinances to stop it.

Since June 11, sagging pants have been against the law in Delcambre, Louisiana, a town of 2,231 that is 80 miles, or 130 kilometers, southwest of Baton Rouge. The style carries a fine of as much as $500 or up to a six-month sentence. "We used to wear long hair, but I don't think our trends were ever as bad as sagging," said Mayor Carol Broussard.

An ordinance in Mansfield, a town of 5,496, subjects offenders to a fine of up to $150 plus court costs or jail time of up to 15 days. Police Chief Don English said the law, which takes effect Sept. 15, would set a good civic image.

Behind the indecency laws may be the real issue - the hip-hop style itself, which critics say is worn as a badge of delinquency, with its distinctive walk conveying thuggish swagger and a disrespect for authority. Also at work are the larger issue of freedom of expression and the questions raised when fashion moves from being merely objectionable to illegal.

Sagging began in American prisons, where oversized uniforms were issued without belts to prevent suicide and the use of belts as weapons. The style spread by way of rappers and music videos, from the ghetto to the suburbs and around the world.

Efforts to outlaw sagging in Virginia and statewide in Louisiana in 2004 failed, usually when opponents invoked a right to self-expression. But the latest legislative efforts have taken a different tack, drawing on indecency laws, and their success is inspiring other lawmakers.

In the West Ward of Trenton, New Jersey, Councilwoman Annette Lartigue is drafting an ordinance to fine or enforce community service in response to what she sees as the problem of exposing private parts in public.

"It's a fad like hot pants; however, I think it crosses the line when a person shows their backside," Lartigue said. "You can't legislate how people dress, but you can legislate when people begin to become indecent by exposing their body parts."

The American Civil Liberties Union has been steadfast in its opposition to dress restrictions. Debbie Seagraves, the executive director of the group in Georgia, said, "I don't see any way that something constitutional could be crafted when the intention is to single out and label one style of dress that originated with the black youth culture as an unacceptable form of expression."

School districts have become more aggressive in enforcing dress bans as the courts have given them greater latitude. Restrictions have been devised for jeans, miniskirts, long hair, piercing, logos with drug references and clothing suggesting gang affiliation, including "colors," hats and jewelry.

Dress codes are showing up in unexpected places. The National Basketball Association now stipulates that players who are not in uniform at league-sponsored events cannot wear items like sunglasses, headgear, exposed chains or medallions. After experiencing a brawl that spilled into the stands and generated publicity headaches, the league sought to enforce a business-casual dress code, saying that hip-hop clothing projected an image that alienated middle-class audiences.

According to Andrew Bolton, the curator at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, fashions tend to be decried when they "challenge the conservative morality of a society."

Not since the zoot suit has a style been greeted with such strong disapproval. The exaggerated boxy long coat and tight-cuffed pants, a look that started in the 1930s, was the emblematic style of a subculture of young urban minorities. During World War II, it was viewed as unpatriotic for flouting a fabric conservation order. The clothing was at the center of what were called Zoot Suit Riots in Los Angeles, racially motivated beatings of Hispanic youths by sailors. The youths were stripped of their garments, which were burned in the street.

Like past fashion bans, the prohibitions on sagging are seen by some as racially motivated because the wearers are young, predominantly African-American men.

Yet this legislation has been proposed largely by African-American officials. It may speak to a generation gap. Michael Eric Dyson, a professor of sociology at Georgetown University and the author of "Know What I Mean?: Reflections on Hip Hop," said, "They've bought the myth that sagging pants represents an offensive lifestyle which leads to destructive behavior."

Last week, Councilman C.T. Martin of Atlanta sponsored an amendment to the city's indecency laws to ban sagging, which he called an epidemic.

"We are trying to craft a remedy," said Martin, who sees the problem as "a prison mentality."

But Larry Harris Jr., 28, a musician from Miami who stood in oversize gear outside a hip-hop show in Times Square in New York, said that prison style was not his inspiration. "I think what you have here is people who don't understand the language of hip-hop," he said.

A dress code ordinance proposed in Stratford, Connecticut, by Councilman Alvin O'Neal was rejected at a Town Council meeting Monday, drawing criticism that the law was unconstitutional and unjustly encouraged racial profiling. Many residents said the town had more pressing issues.

Benjamin Chavis, a former executive director of the NAACP, said, "I think to criminalize how a person wears their clothing is more offensive than what the remedy is trying to do."

Chavis, who is often pictured in an impeccable suit and tie among the baggy outfits of the hip-hop elite, is a chairman of the Hip Hop Summit Action Network. He said that the coalition would challenge the ordinances in court.

"The focus should be on cleaning up the social conditions that the sagging pants comes out of," he said. "That they wear their pants the way they do is a statement of the reality that they're struggling with on a day-to-day basis."
