After 13 years, Opa-locka city in southern Florida has overturned a ban on "saggy pants" –bottoms that reveal the wearer’s underwear.
The City Commission voted on a 4-1 vote to repeal both the legislation that said women, not just men, could receive civil citations for wearing pants that exposed their undergarments.
The vote was a first reading of the repeal, meaning it will need to be approved again at a subsequent commission meeting before its official. But the item was co-sponsored by four of the five commissioners.
"I was never in support of it ,’’ Vice Mayor Chris Davis, who sponsored the repeal, said. "I felt it disproportionately affected a certain segment of our population, which is young, African-American men."（AP）
