A "Midlothian restaraunt" sounds like something that you would need a holodeck to gain access to.

I get it.

If they were not black its not a big deal.

BTW: Did you know Barack Obama is black?

How old are most Hell's Angels members these days ? The ones I see would qualify for the senior special.

That town would prob be surprised with how many businesses are owned by friends of the 81.

Unless arsehole is a sex, race, color, religion, age, handicap or national or ethnic origin, or sexual prefrence, I fail to see what is wrong with letting a group known for violence and drug use into an establishment.

/but a black gang on the other hand is ok.
//somehow.

The HA are criminals.

It's an easy distinction. Whites are a gang. Blacks are a possee. See how they did that? One is the bad guys, the others are the good guys.

a group/fraternity/brotherhood/gang that intentionally makes themselves outsiders of society, confused as to why that same society doesn't welcome them? If party A rejects party B, why can't party B then reject party A too?

Wrong.
The Hell's Angels are a "Club".
This is discrimination pure and simple.
 
2008-08-07 08:35:12 PM
I wonder if they were known as the Wild Hogs?
 
2008-08-07 08:35:35 PM
Having been to Midlothian, if these guys didn't have their Hells Angels gear on, they wouldn't look much different than most of the men in town.

"Now yous can't leave..."
 
2008-08-07 08:35:46 PM
I can't wait until the MS13 boys file a lawsuit. After all, just because they are in a gang that is feared on 2 continents for its brutality doesn't mean they can't also be really nice guys.

If you want to be a member of a group that lives consistently outside the boundaries of acceptable mainstream behavior, that is your right. You should also expect to be treated differently because of the choice you have made.

Why? It's not as if they abuse the all you can eat option.
 
2008-08-07 08:37:54 PM
This is a pure case of prejudice and discrimination. How about we live and let live? Judge people after they have actually done something wrong? To you?

My son belongs to an unaffiliated frat, Delta Tau. If he went into a restruant wearing his Delta Tau "colors" could the throw him out? They raise hell, drink beer and also do a lot of charity work too. Same thing.

/except for the meth
//HA's are big time meth dealers in Norcal

After donning my flame retardant suit...

If you think about it, it's kinda funny. Posse used to be a group of people that went around to kill someone, like in the old west. And N-word that must not be named is ok for black people to say.

/they has magic powers, them colored folk do
//At least black people have a half way decent kinda maybe excuse to gangs.
///Hell's Angels?"Yeah, being a square is lame. Lets kill people we don't like and not listen to anyone."
////That's some suppression they were fighting there.
\\\aware they are mostly an ex-con gang, with bikes.

Can't you be a part of a motorcycle club that isn't Hell's Angels if you're just interested in being in a motorcycle club? Make up your own and then there's no stigma from the actions of others. Make the distinguishing attire something other than leather jackets with some sort of insignia on the back.

There has to be some reason other than enjoying riding to join the Hell's Angels.

Since someone threw in the whole black/white deal, I just saw a black motorcycle gang/club. They were called "Hell's Lovers" which sounds sorta ghey to me, but whatever.

50 black dudes, 1 fat white chick who looked like that bounty hunters wife.

her nickname must be "hell"

FTFA "Usually, we advise the owners," Schavone said. "Our policy is strictly to avoid trouble. Obviously, it's well known that various gangs who have gang insignias become a magnet for trouble."

nuclear_asshat: Since someone threw in the whole black/white deal, I just saw a black motorcycle gang/club

I used to live across the street from a bar that was the gathering spot for what I liked to call "the gang of african american crotch rocket aficionados". Every sunday night during the summer they'd part their bikes in a line underneath my apartment window (thankfully I lived 3 storeys up) and hang out for a bit, check out each other's bikes, and go in to the bar for drinks. They actually seemed like pretty decent guys and were always friendly to me if I happened to be walking up to my apartment when they were all hanging out admiring each other's toys. But God, those bikes were ugly as sin.

The Midlothian is a notorious Nazgul hangout.
