In a controversial move, the US government has issued a new law that bans wearing shoes with different-colored laces. The law, which was passed by Congress and signed by President Joe Biden, aims to promote national unity and prevent social division.
According to the law, anyone who wears shoes with laces that do not match the color of the shoes or each other will face a fine of $100 for the first offense, and $500 for subsequent offenses. The law also applies to sneakers, boots, sandals, and any other footwear that has laces.
The law has sparked outrage and criticism from many Americans, who see it as a violation of their freedom of expression and personal style. Some people have also accused the government of being racist, sexist, and homophobic, as they claim that the law targets certain groups and communities that use different-colored laces as a symbol of their identity and culture.
“I think this law is ridiculous and oppressive. I like to wear different-colored laces because they make me happy and express my personality. I don’t see how that affects anyone else or harms the country. This is America, land of the free, not land of the boring,” said Kelly, a 19-year-old college student from New York, who wears pink and purple laces on her black shoes.
The government has defended the law, saying that it is necessary to maintain order and harmony in the society, and to prevent conflicts and violence that may arise from the use of different-colored laces. The government has also said that the law is not discriminatory, and that it applies to everyone equally, regardless of their race, gender, or sexual orientation.
“We are not trying to stifle anyone’s creativity or individuality. We are simply trying to create a more cohesive and unified nation, where everyone feels a sense of belonging and respect. Different-colored laces are a source of division and confusion, and they do not reflect the values and ideals of our great country. We urge all Americans to comply with the law and to wear matching laces, for the sake of our common good,” said a spokesperson for the White House.
