my son wants a doo rag

my 11 year old son wants a doo rag. We live in the suburbs. I don't see any of the other kids wearing these. I think he is just watching rap videos and thinks it is something good to wear.
what should i tell him?

  • On white kids, they look ridiculous. Non-white and they look okay. So there you go. Suburbs or not.

  • Neh! some how black people look better in 'em. I would say no 1. he is too young tell him to be himself and 2. It is mainly to hold your hair down like if he wanted to train it to go all the way back then he would wear this to sleep until the hair is laid back on it's own. GL Times changed so use your best judgement.

  • If a doo rag is what I think it is... it is a form of gang wear. No... plain and simple. You dress respectable at all times. Sad to say but people WILL make opinions based on how you present your self.
