NAACP Calls U.S. Airways Racist for Kicking Man with Saggy Pants Off Plane

U.S. Airways' decision to kick a football player wearing sagging pants off one of its planes in San Francisco is provoking the ire of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, which says that the move was racist.

Deshon Marman, a black college football player, was ordered off a plane docked at San Francisco International Airport last week after a flight attendant objected to a rather severe level of pant-sagginess that was allegedly “below his buttocks, but above the knees.” (A difficult region at which to maintain your pants, to be sure.)
