The pop culture fame of the song “Pants on The Ground” has fired the shot that we all need to think about. Why? Larry Platt was a Civil Rights Protestor with Martin Luther King Jr.  Some of Platt’s past civil rights activities include working with the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Georgia, organizing sit-ins in the South and marching in the Bloody Sunday march from Selma, Ala., to Montgomery.

The songs lyrics are a definite conviction to exactly how many of us view the clothing style that has been popular for far too long. “Pants on the Ground/Pants on the ground Pants on the ground/ Lookin’ like a fool with you pants on the ground/ Gold in your mouth/ Hat turned sideways, pants hit the ground/ Call yourself a cool cat looking like a fool”
