NAACP Says “Low Pants Bill” Is Discriminatory

AP, March 24, 2008

The Florida branch of the NAACP says a bill that would ban students from wearing their pants too low could lead to more legal trouble for black males.

Orlando Senator Gary Siplin’s bill was approved 28-11 last week by the Florida Senate.

The bill calls for no criminal sanctions, but it would prohibit students from wearing pants low so that they expose undergarments.

NAACP President Adora Obi Nweze called it a “clearly discriminatory bill.’’
