Word: I'll show you kids what a belt's for!

In 2007, Atlanta Councilman C.T. Martin unsuccessfully proposed a much-debated law against saggy britches. Now he offers a resolution praising Morehouse College for setting a good example.

“The debate garnered international attention and discussion among youth and adults and has led to several states, municipalities and educational institutions to encourage their youth to dress appropriately.”

“I think people passing a law against people wearing sagging pants is a waste of time. Having said that, brothers should pull up their pants."

—    President-elect Barack Obama, in an MTV interview

“The use of profanity and the wearing of exposed underwear are not a part of the image of Morehouse College, its students, nor its distinguished alumni, which include actor Samuel Jackson and director Spike Lee…”

“I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!"
