You can just call me Gangsta Barbie

by statia on March 30, 2004

How fucking insanely ridiculous is it, when a school bans kids from wearing pink, because they feel that it could be related to gang activity?

Administrators last week told students at the city’s high school and two middle schools to avoid wearing pink clothing or accessories, said Michael Berta, associate superintendent in the Northwestern Indiana district.

“There is no evidence of gang activity. But because of the growing use of the color pink we decided to be proactive. Girls and boys are supposed to avoid wearing pink,” Berta said Monday.

Gee, could it be because every fucking store in the United States is selling nothing but pink? At this point, I’d have to trash half my wardrobe.

That is so friking stupid. Clothing doesn’t make bad kids. Bad kids are just bad kids.

It’s because pink is the new pink.

What kind of gang would use pink as its colour? The cripth and the bloodth?

Why not red and blue – actual gang colours? Well, as long as they don’t ban aubergine and chartreuse…

Pink? Are they serious? With it being Spring, then Easter being around the corner, I feel more sorry for the grandmothers sending their grandkids pink clothes.

Tsk tsk. Pissing off Grandma is never a good idea.

What gang would choose pink as their color? One that breaks into your house in the middle of the night, redecorate and do your dishes? That doesnt seem all that bad to me.

umm yeah well not only is it stupid cause its pink, not only is it stupid cause there isnt a gang, but what the fuck this is Northwestern Indian not Compton dippy the shit stick!

That is pretty stupid. Besides, how many boys would really use pink as their gang colors? I had one hot pink shirt when i was younger, but hey — it was the 80′s.
