CNN Talkers Clash Over “Pull Up Your Pants Challenge”

Watch as CNN’s Marc Lamont Hill and the Blaze’s Tara Setmayer argue over whether or not saggy pants play a part in racial profiling.

“It suggests that somehow there’s a connection between black male profiling and our pants being sagging. Before black people pulled their pants down, they were still being locked up…If we continue to tell young black men that they can behave or dress or otherwise demonstrate their way out of police oppression or police abuse, then we’re blaming the victim,” Hill said.

“I find it hard to believe that Marc would be as educated as he is and as much as he has contributed to the black community and trying to overcome the negativity that’s in the community that he would actually sit here and try to justify emulating bad behavior,” Setmayer replied.
