“The debate garnered international attention and discussion among youth and adults and has led to several states, municipalities and educational institutions to encourage their youth to dress appropriately.”

—    C.T. Martin, from his current resolution

“I think people passing a law against people wearing sagging pants is a waste of time. Having said that, brothers should pull up their pants."

—    President-elect Barack Obama, in an MTV interview

“The use of profanity and the wearing of exposed underwear are not a part of the image of Morehouse College, its students, nor its distinguished alumni, which include actor Samuel Jackson and director Spike Lee…”

—    C.T. Martin, from his current resolution

“I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!"

—    Samuel L. Jackson, from Snakes on a Plane, 2006
