Allow me to state what most Americans believe: anyone over 13 years old who wears baggy points is an idiot. In fact, a number of US communities have laws on the books that ban low-slung pants. (1)

Now we learn that Deshon Marman, a safety for the New Mexico Lobos, was removed from a plane at San Francisco International Airport and arrested after refusing to pull up his pants.

According to a U.S. Airways employee, the 20 year old football player had his pants "below his buttocks, but above the knees, and his boxer shorts were showing."

This is an example of "You can take the kid out of the ghetto, but you can't get the ghetto out of the kid." What grown man wears his pants below his underwear? What kind of an idiot is he? But that's what happens when you have a stupid Ebonic name like Deshon and do not have the sense to change it when you become an adult.

Of course Deshon's mom engages in the typical race game and blames the whole imbroglio "because of the way he looks - young black man with dreads and baggy pants." (2) No, he got in trouble simply because he's acted like a NWA. All he had to do was be a normal human being and pull up his pants.

A note to Deshon's mom: Regarding his stupid name, here's some advice from my article If I were black I would be offended on naming any of your future children: "... unless your children were born in Zimbabwe, stop calling them Mfuqwa or Shaniqwa ... If you want your children to be successful in America do what everybody else does in this country, assimilate."



Daily Global, 17 Sep 2008, Judge Rules Baggy Pants Ban Unconstitutional

A Florida, USA judge has deemed unconstitutional a law banning baggy pants that show off the wearer’s underwear, local media reported Tuesday.

A 17-year-old spent a night in jail last week after police arrested him for wearing low pants in Riviera Beach, southeast Florida.

The law banning so-called “saggy pants” was approved by city voters in March after supporters of the bill collected nearly 5,000 signatures to put the measure on the ballot.


Laws that ban low-slung pants are on the books in several US cities, including Delcambre, Louisiana, where offenders can be fined up to 500 dollars or jailed for up to six months.

Dallas, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia are among the larger US cities considering similar measures.


The Australian, Deshon Marman kicked off US Airways plane over his baggy pants

Deshon MarmanDeshon Marman, 20, who was in San Francisco to attend a former high school teammate's funeral, was asked to pull up his sagging pants before boarding a US Airways flight to Albuquerque yesterday, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.


An airline employee asked Marman to pull up his pants at the boarding gate, and the request was repeated aboard the plane, but he refused.

"At that point he was asked to leave the plane," Sgt. Michael Rodriguez told the Chronicle. "It took 15 to 20 minutes of talking to get him to leave the plane, and he was arrested for trespassing."

Marman, who plays football for the University of New Mexico, allegedly resisted officers as he was removed from the plane.

Marman's mother, Donna Doyle, said her son was singled out "because of the way he looks - young black man with dreads and baggy pants".
