Florida town: Get your pants off the ground or face 6 months in jail
A city in Florida doesn’t want people showing off their ‘whale tails,’ ‘plumber’s cracks’ or boxers on public property so much that they banned the saggy-pants fashion statement within city limits.
“Lookin’ like a fool, walkin’ downtown with ya pants on the ground,” ‘General’ Larry Platt famously sang in his ‘American Idol’ audition. “Giddy up! Get ya pants off the ground!”
Officials in Ocala, Fla. agree with Platt’s sentiment so much that city council unanimously passed an ordinance that prohibits anyone on city property from wearing pants two inches or more below a person’s natural waist.

It doesn’t matter how Black men and boys dress, as white people always find a way to pathologize and criminalize them. And remember that Dr. MLK Jr.—a “respectable” Black Christian man— was assassinated while wearing a suit. Fuck “respectability”-politics. 

Lets just ignore the fact that school shootings have sky rocketed. The biggest problem facing America is black men sagging. In Florida no less. Are y’all motherfuckers serious?! You cannot be. 
Weed is becoming legal. They need new ways to throw those scary black men and scary 8 year old black boys in prison.

Africa is CONTINENT, not a country.
We do not SPEAK AFRICAN, there are over 3,000 unique languages with over 8,000 dialects.
We are not a MONOLITHIC group; not only does each country, tribe, region, Etc have a distinct culture to them, the way they dance and express rhythm and dress varies as well.
We have a history RICHER than the European continent, sadly the Europeans have white washed, raped, assimilated and destroyed a lot of it.
Africa is a RICH continent, but due to colonization most of our resources are being stolen and the European military and monarchy is making sure it stays that way.
Our people are beautiful; being black is a blessing never a curse. Our skin keeps is young and beautiful. It protects is from the sun and shields is from weatherly dangers.
Western European beauty standards are fallacies.
Africa is more than a continent, it’s a life.
