The Oscala, FL city council had previously passed an ordinance preventing citizens from walking around with pants that showed their undergarments or worse.. their butts. The NAACP threatened to file suit against the “saggy pants” ordinance and Oscala blinked.
Local NAACP President Loretta Pompey Jenkins said that the issue should not be dealt with through government agencies.
Dale Landry, of the Florida state NAACP said “it’s going to be black males that are the subject of this.”
Landry’s assertion is that because mainly black males show their underwear or buttocks in public, the regulation to prevent it is clearly racist.
The NAACP seems disinterested in improving the quality of life of the black community and instead have become the puppet of those that have no interest in elevating the African-American community as far as possible.
If all the NAACP can do for black Americans is to protect the right to show some butt, I have no idea why black Americans feel that the NAACP speaks for them.
