|Multicultural whiners can't understand why black biker events require more security than white biker events.
Their motorcycles roaring they drove through Myrtle Beach in packs, a
stream of chiseled torsos, tattooed biceps, string bikinis, and thongs.
The bikes were mostly Japanese-made, brightly painted, with power to
spare. But speed was impossible for the more than 200,000 bikers who had
shown up this May in Myrtle Beach, S.C. (population: 22,759) for Black
Bike Week, a 25-year-old, Memorial Day-weekend extravaganza.
With few exceptions, the only white faces on the strip belonged to
the police, who had turned out in force and, by blocking access to the
white residential and vacation areas, were doing their best to ensure
that the bikers confined themselves to the main roads—Ocean Boulevard
and U.S. 17
Banners emblazoned with "Bikers Welcome" had been patched onto
storefronts and strip-mall marquees, but the signs weren't intended for
the black bikers. They had been erected earlier in the month for a
different motorcycle event, a Harley-Davidson rally, which attracted a
predominantly white crowd and wasn't burdened with similar traffic
schemes or business closings.
Preparations are underway for a trial scheduled for early next
spring in which the NAACP plans to argue that the traffic policies and
police tactics employed during Black Bike Week were discriminatory.
According to the Myrtle Beach Sun…
Horry County officials reported 129 cases with fines or
bond amounts totaling $19,151 during the nine days of the Harley
Davidson rally from May 14 to May 22, according to reports.
During the three-day Atlantic Beach Bikefest [more commonly known as
Black Bike Week] on Memorial Day weekend, Horry County officials
recorded 180 cases and $29,350 in daily fines or bond amounts.
This year in Myrtle Beach during the busy Harley rally weekend of May
20-22, officials recorded six felonies, 385 misdemeanors and 391
traffic-related incidents, according to records.
From May 27-30 during the Atlantic Beach Bikefest, Myrtle Beach
police recorded 15 felonies, 937 misdemeanors and 952 traffic-related
So for each day of the regular bike event, their were 14 incidents in
Horry County per day. During Black Bike Week, there were 60 incidents
per day. That is an increase of over 400% during the all black event.--Hat tip to C of CC
