Was watching the insider this evening with my wife and she reminded me of this black guy whom was kicked off U.S. Airways for sagging this pants. That guy is Deshon Marman, a football player attending the University of New Mexico.
Marman had been pulled off a flight to Albuquerque and even arrested after he refused to pull his pants up in response to an employee’s request. That was surprising to hear since on the same flight, this old Caucasian fellow was allowed to fly though dressed like a cross-dresser. Marman on the other hand was taken into police custody when he refused to get up from his seat on the plane. He was then booked on suspicion of trespassing, battery and resisting arrest. A U.S. Airways spokesperson had this to say about the incident. “We don’t have a dress code policy,” Wunder said. “Obviously, if their private parts are exposed, that’s not appropriate. … So if they’re not exposing their private parts, they’re allowed to fly.”
Is this the case of racial profiling?
