I’m in a gang, gang of the white socks
We fight the gangs who wear pink frocks
We hate the red socks, the green and blue
So join the whites and we won’t mess with you
30th Apr 2023 – In our first week back at school, my final year, the whole school was told that boys were not allowed to wear white socks, they were not part of the uniform. Of course, most of us preferred white socks and when we questioned teachers further about it they insisted that it was because they believed that those wearing white socks were part of a gang. We had no idea where this was coming from and were pretty incredulous about it.
