Billboard Tells Young Men to Pull Up Pants

A businessman has a message for young African American men: pull up your pants.

Insurance Agent Fred Davis shelled out $6,000 this billboard in Tennessee.

It says "Show your mind. Not your behind." Davis believes men who sag their pants portray an image of crime and poor education.

"If you want to be upwardly mobile, you can't present that image to people who are qualified to make a decision about you."

Davis is also a civil rights activist who marched alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior.

He says they fought for future generations to move up a little higher, not for "thuggish mentality."
