The Game

NJ Saggy Pants Ban


6/14/2013 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0613-the-game-gettyA new law banning saggy pants on the Jersey Shore has pissed off a bunch of famous rappers -- including The Game, who tells TMZ, the anti-sag movement is racist ... and tantamount to SLAVERY.

In case you didn't know, the city of Wildwood, NJ just passed a law that prohibits anyone on its boardwalk from wearing pants that sag 3 inches below the hips, exposing skin or underwear. First time offenders are subject to fines ranging from $25-$100 ... and after that, the fines go up to $200.

40 hours of community service is also a possible punishment.

Now, several rappers are speaking out against the law -- Game tells us, "N***** should sag down to their socks out there. They trying to get people to not sag, please. Can’t tell people how to wear their f***ing clothes. What time are we in? This ain't the f***ing slave days. F*** that."

He adds, "I am with the sagging movement. First five people to get fines, I will pay their tickets ... I will go there and sag cause I am a sagging Sagittarius."

Bizzy Bone from Bone Thugs-n-Harmony tells us, "Are they talking about black people? How can they do that? This is racist and ridiculous."

And for the white guy's perspective ... Mac Miller says, "I just think that's ridiculous because no one has time to do that much community service. I sag and will sag anywhere I go."

The law's scheduled to go into effect next month. You're welcome, Larry Platt.

So saggy pants are offensive because boxer shorts may be visible? But girls in tiny micro bikinis and a TV series based on the skankiest trashiest disgrace to human beings is fine? Fining people for wearing saggy pants is American racism at its finest.

I have seen plenty of white boys sagging their pants too. This isn't racist at all. I do find it hilarious when you see someone who sags their pants walking down the street. Their pants keep getting lower and lower and watching them adjust every 5 steps cracks me up. Just pull up your damn pants already. I don't want to see your nasty underwear.

HIP HUGGERS were very popular, along with bell bottoms, in the late 1960...s and early 1970s. Many find it sexy and very attractive. Black dudes have nice asses, so why penalize them for it? Let them dress how they want, just since they are not nude. Or... tell girls to stop wearing low-cut dresses and blouses, because not everyone wants to see their titties. Seriously. Very seriously. That is gross as hell, but I never complained about it; I just turn my head so I don't puke.

TO the guy who commented about women showing their underwear (a.k.a. Whale Tail): In every US city, decency laws require that outside approved areas (i.e. beaches) even women must have the buttocks area covered. In most every beach city, once you're off the sand, a thong can get you arrested. It's not racist. Show some respect, decency, and some intelligence.

Yes, I thoroughly enjoy looking @ mens underwear & asses, classless, hopefully Philadelphia follows suit as Mayor Nutter is not afraid of the idiots who would protest, oh & its NOT RACIST, There r plenty of white,asian, spanish & plenty of other nationalities that want look like imbiciles. Lastly 2 ALL the Brothers in the World, if u don't want people 2 use the (N) word, u might want 2 start with yourselves, Respect 4 All your Bros. by not calling each other (*****s), but saying its Ok cause your Black or its said wth an (A) @ the End, instead of an (R) Does Not make it Right. !!!!

Yeah, that's exactly what the "sagging movement" needs, an illiterate man with the IQ of a rock leading them.

Does anyone know how the saggy pant craze started? It was started in PRISION so the prisoners had easier access. The Game should know that.

The Game who cried wolf. Aside from making one look like the biggest douche in the universe, this whole pants thing will diminish one's ability to run form the police after smoking crack and stealing a car see that's racist.

and i guess if blacks wanted to walk down the street with no pants at all and they were stopped by the police, the police would be racist, its really funny watching this minority among blacks going out of their way to see how far they can push the decency line and then when someone says you have crossed the line, your a racist, its sad because this really is the trash of america and they are so desperate for attention, they use the race card when the rest of america won't stoop to the cutter like them

It's a stupid, immature and NASTY habit anyway. Mad props to NJ for standing up, especially in the face of the ignorant

Quit crying racism!!!! The look is disgusting. No one
wants to look at someone else's underwear or your crack and in some cases your pubic hair. Saying it's racist is ignorant, also when were any of you slaves?
To say it targets blacks OH PLEASE. Look around.
The only thing that I like about this look is that when people are running from the cops they tend to fall flat on their faces!! Call that whatever you want.
