The Game

NJ Saggy Pants Ban

Is RACIST!!!

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.

The whole saggy pants "fashion statement" originated in prisons where homosexual men wanted an easy way to show other prisoners that they were available and willing to get banged in the poop shoot. It crack my up that this deplorable action has gone main streem. Hey Justin Bieber, if you spent one day in jail and pulled that crap you would get ass raped in under ten seconds. It's not racist to tell people to pull up their pants, its just common sense. Pull up your pants you freaking wankers. Otherwise you are just looking for some man junk in your man trunk!

Belts are not permitted in prison, hence sagging pants.

to all the idiots that say noone wants to see your ass does that apply to the women who wear shorts so small their ass is showing or the bikinis that show more ass than saggy pants or does the anti show your ass law not apply to women wearing skimpy clothes

Dont go to Jersey then...YOU ALL look like IDIOTS with your pants hanging down...Like I want to see your disgusting underwear. Wear pants like NORMAL people do. Never understood the rationale behind it.

I have to wonder if all these saggy pants players know where sagging pants came from and the main rumor about this fashion choice. Saggy pants got their beginnings in prison where the rumor was if you wore you pants in that style you were demonstrating your sexual availability to bend over and pick up the bar of soap. Kind of puts the whole "fashion" statement into a rather amusing point of view...

Out off all the big social issues that a celebrity can focus attention, Game is worried about sagging pants. Well people do rise to the level of their ability.

it looks so STUPID these pants hanging down. I often wonder how they keep them in that half suspended manner? do they use safety pins? glue? Best part of those pants is when they try to run from the police they always fall down and trip up the perp. LOL.
not racist, white guys and brown guys are also under this new law...didn't see where it stated black guys only.

"Sagging" started in prison. It is this trend itself that is like slavery, no the ban on it. Gentleman, pull your ****ing pants up.

I think this look is disgusting and in my opinion, the look of the less educated.
