Arkansas College Banned Saggy Pants, Now People Are Deeming This Racist. Do You Support This Ban?

Many dislike baggy pants, but is it racist to dislike them? Some people are pushing-back on a ban and playing the tired race card. I guess some people just need a hobby…


When Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas started to punish students for wearing saggy pants on the campus, they quickly began to face accusations of racism.

While the college has yet to officially ban sagging pants in its dress code, signs around the campus warn students that wearing pants below their waist line simply won’t be tolerated.

Because the school has no official dress code, liberals are accusing Henderson of being racist for targeting a clothing style most often associated with black culture.

The college spokeswoman, Tonya Smith, also says signs prohibit profanity and rude behavior along with the sagging pants in order to prevent disruption on campus.

“Our faculty in particular had experienced an increase in inappropriate classroom behaviors that were disturbing the learning environment,” Smith told Inside Higher Ed.

Liberal students who are obsessed with political correctness claim that the signs are a subtle attempt for the school to suppress black culture.

“It’s politically insensitive to certain groups,” said student Kristin Bell to local KATV News. “They felt like they were being targeted.”

Others believe that besides from being racist, instituting a city-wide ban on certain clothing is unconstitutional since it impedes on American’s rights under the First Amendment.

But saggy pants have been targeted before in other states. Ocala, Florida passed a ban on saggy pants in 2014 which was ultimately repealed because of its racist implications and racial targeting of young black men.

To the left, what isn’t a racial issue?
