This song was made famous last night on American Idol. I'm sure that it won't be the last time we hear it (in fact look for it to come back at the American Idol finals in May and a record deal is probably in the works)
However, this artist has accurately portrayed something that we've all commented on and wondered why? Why do those kids wear their shorts down to their knees? Do they really think it's fashionable? What message are they sending ( just ask my wife what she heard that the message means in the prison system)
Maybe General Larry Pratt has used his art to call attention to something in our culture that we need to examine (and exterminate!)and to ask "Why are your pants on the ground?"
