Freedom to Sag This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I sag my pants, and I do not see the big deal. As the article said, “It is completely legal for the Ku Klux Klan to gather and march down the street” so how is sagging a more pressing issue than that or any other problem in the U.S.?

Sagging is a style now and not just a gangster sign. It will eventually go out like all styles, but we have the right to wear our clothes how we want.

The article mentions how the police in towns that ban sagging would be able to bust anyone for the slightest sag. I once read that sagging came from oversized prison jumpsuits with no belts. They didn’t want the inmates outgrowing the suits or making weapons out of the belts. So it’s the authorities who created sagging in the first place!
