Salad Days: 8th Street & Oxblood

Does anyone remember the legend behind the lace codes of the late 80's/early 90's? You know, white DM laces meant you were white power while red simply meant you were just a regular old fashioned skin; pink meant you were gay; green meant you were a vegetarian or straight-edge, etc. I'm sure there were different codes in each town or city. I can't recall the full list that I knew around NYC or Brooklyn but my favourites were the rumoured ones like "oooh yeah he has blue laces, that means he killed a cop!" Hahahaha will you just shut the F up?! Let me guess, and every douche with a spiderweb tat on their elbow has murdered someone too, right?
