boxer shorts or thongs are coming under
fire in many parts of the country. Earlier
this year, several towns and parish governments in Louisiana effectively banned them

Proponents of these laws say that
outfits that expose underwear are less

that such laws are discriminatory because they target
fashion practices arising out of the black youth culture.
