Here’s Is The ‘Racist’ Billboard That Some Say Should Be in Every American City

A new ‘racist’ billboard is up, and people are crying foul. Well, someone needed to say it, and good luck crying racism on this one, because this guy is black himself. Sometimes it just needs to be said, folks:

A billboard put up recently in an urban section of Memphis, Tennessee is generating controversy, although the man behind it said it bears an important message for young men in his neighborhood.

And many people agree with him.

Fred Davis, an insurance agent, said he decided to invest in a billboard because he wanted young black men to know when their pants are sagging, “It negatively impacts their future.”

The short and powerful message reads “Show your mind, not your behind,” and includes an image of a young Black man with sagging pants.

And while some immediately attacked the ad, calling it “racist,” they were quickly informed that the man who purchased the ad is a Black businessman, who denounced the “thuggish mentality” among “too many” Black youths today:

“We didn’t fight for civil rights to end up with the thugs running around today”

This is just awesome.
