What do you think about Dallas Councilman Dwaine R. Caraway’s support of a local rap song that equates wearing sagging pants to being gay as a way to discourage young black men from dressing in that fashion?
“Two wrongs do not make a right. You can’t degrade one group to make another look better. It’s just not right.”
“It’s derogatory toward gay people. If that’s his intention, it’s unacceptable.”
“I think it’s certainly faulty logic. If the situation were reversed, it would be viewed as highly derogatory. I can’t condone that
“I think it’s good that they are trying to get their pants back up, but that’s the wrong way to go about it.”
“As a councilman and city leader he needs to be more sensitive to other groups. If more than one person is offended by it, action needs to be taken to correct it.”
