After Violence, SC Governor Wants to End Biker Weekend

Bruce Smith, The State, June 8, 2014

After a bloody Memorial Day weekend left three dead and seven wounded, Gov. Nikki Haley wants to end the annual Atlantic Beach Bikefest which has drawn black bikers for decades to the tiny beachside community near Myrtle Beach.

The Bikefest attracts thousands to Atlantic Beach–a town of less than a square mile, three oceanfront blocks and about 350 residents–as well as to surrounding areas along the strip of coast known as the Grand Strand. Evans says there haven’t been problems in his town but he is willing to discuss the need for more law enforcement in other areas during the weekend.

Police say the Memorial Day weekend slaying of three people in Myrtle Beach motel 14 miles away seems to be gang-related. A look at the controversy:

As the governor sees it

—”Eight shootings happened during this weekend. Three people died. That is not OK for South Carolina,” Haley told reporters. “This Bikefest does not represent the people of this state. It does not represent what we are trying to do when we promote tourism and jobs.” Haley plans to talk to Evans about ending Bikefest.

The mayor’s view

— “I’m not above talking to Grand Strand city leaders and coming together with them and making sure they handle the problem which is to make sure everybody abides by the law,” said Evans who as of Thursday had not heard from the governor. “But I’m not willing to sit down at the table with anyone and discuss canceling Bikefest.”

Unfair to Atlantic Beach?

— Why not also put the brakes on the Harley-Davidson rally attracting predominantly white Harley riders earlier in May? “If you’re going to stop the black bikers weekend, you should stop all biker weekends, regardless if nothing happened during that time. That’s unfair,” said Atlantic Beach resident Jennequa Miller.

Harley rally generally quiet

— Brad Dean, the CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, said beyond traffic congestion, there are few problems with the Harley rally though Memorial Day weekend crime continues to get worse. “Atlantic Beach is entitled to do what they want within the town limits. But this event is having such a huge impact on other communities that the rest of the Grand Strand cannot simply stand by.”

— “This has nothing to do with what kind of motorcycle a person drives and everything to do with the fact Myrtle Beach had over 4,000 calls for police service, eight separate shootings, and three murders during the course of a Memorial Day weekend,” added Haley spokesman Doug Mayer.

    ” “If you’re going to stop the black bikers weekend, you should stop all

    unfair,” said Atlantic Beach resident Jennequa Miller.”

    I wonder what race “Jennequa” is. And of course the scream of “Racism!”

    I’ve heard of swap meets going on not too far from where I live. As far as I can tell it’s whites attending them, and I haven’t heard about any property damage occurring.

    I would say, Ms. Miller, that it’s unfair for blacks to ruin everything for everyone else because of their bad behavior.

    • Katherine McChesney

      I googled her name and hit ‘images’. She is black.

      • Ike Eichenberg

        With the name Jennequa regardless of race you can bet she has a room temp IQ.

        • IstvanIN

          What do you consider room temperature?

          • r j p

            68-72?

          • IstvanIN

            She isn’t that smart. Or hot.

          • Kenner

            Ha!

          • Jesse_from_Sweden

            As a european, I go by the celsius scale…..

          • IstvanIN

            Then you think she IS smart.

          • Jesse_from_Sweden

            Normal room temperature in celsius is 20-24 degrees….

      • Alexandra1973

        I’m shocked, shocked I tell you!

        I’m not surprised.

    • LHathaway

      “If you’re going to stop the black bikers weekend, you should stop all
      biker weekends, regardless if nothing happened during that time”

      Unfortunately, Jennequa Miller’s version of morality is what rules the day.

      • Snazzy Snook

        And in the “smart cookie” Rachel Janteal’s voice, of Jennequa Miller’s version of morality is what rules the day .. Dey old skoo , we in da new skoo .. Dis is new skoo ..

    • Alucard_the_last

      Sturgis, SD has 500,000 people and less violence. More proof that negroes need to say in their own land like Haiti or Africa.

  • Most of the blacks that go to black biker week aren’t bikers, they’re garden variety thugs just looking for a good or bad time.

    Why not also put the brakes on the Harley-Davidson rally attracting predominantly white Harley riders earlier in May? “If you’re going to stop the black bikers weekend, you should stop all biker weekends, regardless if nothing happened during that time. That’s unfair,” said Atlantic Beach resident Jennequa Miller.

    Wonderful hair hat hooligan “logic.” Why don’t we put non-murderers in prison for murder just to be fair to all the blacks in prison for murder?

    Harleys are overprices toys for six figure white collar white people pretending to be weekend warrior bikers looking to live out some mid life crisis fantasy.

    • Kenner

      ‘Hair hat hooligan’….a keeper.

    • LHathaway

      At least they are buying American.

    • LHathaway

      “Why don’t we put non-murderers in prison for murder just to be fair to all the blacks in prison for murder”?

      You ask a rhetorical question, but just the same, I wouldn’t be committing any kind of violent assault or dangerous drinking and driving, if I were you, and if you are white.

    • Snazzy Snook

      Harleys are overpriced toys for six figure corporate white collar white

      Yeah ? Say that to a Hells Angel and see what his response is ..

      • ElComadreja

        Yeah. I don’t know where he gets that but there’s still plenty of real bikers left that might disagree.

    • Fantaman

      Really? Would you walk up to them and say that?

    • Alexandra1973

      Not necessarily. My uncle rides a Harley, has done so as long as I can remember, he’s not white-collar. He’s in the Detroit Renegades MC and my mom says he’s racist (which I take to mean he knows the truth).

      • Tarczan

        I ride a bike. Got three, two Fujis and a Bianchi.

  • JackKrak

    Jennequa.

    New one for the list.

    • Kenner

      Je ne sais quoi, noire.

      • JackKrak

        Jennegro?

        • Kenner

          They thinks French be classy. A black who attacked a bus driver here was a ‘Courvasier Jackson’. It don’t get mo’ classy than that.

          • Katherine McChesney

            I crack up when I meet black woman named So-PHI-a. They certainly to like French. They pronounce the word “aunt” as “ONT. Lol.

    • Alexandra1973

      Probably an Ebonics version of Jennifer.

    • Anyone catch Daily Kenn’s article the other day with a list of perps in a Cedar Point fight? It’s a veritable list of good ol’ AA names… http://dailykenn[dot]blogspot[dot]com/2014/06/arrests-made-at-cedar-point-melee.html

        We don’t need no stinkin’ photos to know these are darkies.

        I heard of this fight on the local news; no mention made it was an outbreak of spontaneous blackness.

  • D.B. Cooper

    Hmm I remember seeing this movie all the time back in Blockbuster’s glory days. Strange that it was always available for rent. “God forgives. Black bikers don’t”!

    • Pro_Whitey

      So you like documentaries, I see.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    Convenient omission of a word in the article title. I’ve always heard the event referred to as Black Biker Weekend.

    • DNA Explains It All

      Yeah funny how that works, it’s like ANYTHING with black in it takes on a well deserved stigma or something.

    • ElComadreja

      The sight of a black on a bike is just so damn wrong.

  • freddy_hills

    “If you’re going to stop the black bikers weekend, you should stop all
    biker weekends, regardless if nothing happened during that time. That’s
    unfair,” said Atlantic Beach resident Jennequa Miller.

    Then stop breaking the law A$$HOLE!

  • Individually, a black can’t behave himself. When in groups, they feed off each other’s negative energy and stuff hits the fan.

    Don’t just talk about canceling black bikefest, do it. The alternative is to give over a large swath of civilization to the barbarian hoards. If they kill and maim each other, no big deal, but it’s the symbol of giving barbarians their way that is killing the West. Resist, Ms. Haley. Take a stand for civilization, although you’ll be labeled “racist” for doing so.

  • r j p

    Why don’t they just attach it to that revival “festival” in Alabama where a bunch of blacks gather, drink, do drugs, and have sex with the same dozen prostitutes in dirty tents? They could call it “Roarin and Whorin”

  • Strider73

    Meanwhile, Daytona Beach has biker gatherings in spring and autumn (the former lasting at least a week) and Leesburg, FL has its own 4-day Bikefest in late April. All three events draw six-digit virtually all-white crowds, and all are virtually free of serious crime.

  • 4321realist

    Since Colin Flaherty came out with his book and columns, and his heads up calls on the knockout game, more people everywhere are beginning to condemn them.

    But I don’t look for whites to finally stand up and say enough is enough. People are becoming more aware, but, except for a few of us who are outraged over their conduct, I doubt we’re going to see whitey get up off the couch and hit the streets, but maybe being made aware is important in that it is the first step in acting against it.

    What I think will happen is that more of these events are just going to close down just as many have done already rather than put up with the black menace.

    But I think that might just make them move elsewhere. They’re not going to quit having bongo parties.

    And the deterioration will continue.

  • IKUredux

    Pretty soon all the laws in this country are going to do nothing more than reflect what has to be done vis. a vis Blacks. So, to keep it “fair”, ALL Harley Davidson rallys will be outlawed. That includes Daytona, and Sturgis. When do we say: ” enough”? Geez o pete, these non-Whites are screwing over all our fun because they are incapable of acting like normal regular humans. OMG I am sick of having amusement parks close because of negroes ruining it! I am sick of having malls close because of negroes ruining it. I am sick of having to move to a new neighborhood because of negroes ruining it. I am SICK, SICK SICK of putting up with their vile, destructive, behavior. Their behavior has nothing to do with Whites and racism. Just look at Africa, to see that their DNA is their destiny. As smart as we Whites are, there is no arguing with DNA, no matter what the excuses we provide, no matter how much we help , we Whites are unable to fight the biological DNA imperative that has declared all other races inferior to ours.

      Hello IKUredux,

      You missed one.

      I am sick of having swimming pools close up because of Africans ruining it.

      But I guess the public swimming pools are all gone now.

      Blacks ruin everything.

  • willbest

    Myrtle Beach residents have already lost in court trying to shut this thing down, best of luck to the Gov.

    • bubo

      Atlanta got rid of Freaknik. Daytona got rid of the remnants which was called “black college reunion.”

      It can be done.

      • Katherine McChesney

        West Palm Beach has this problem. The homosexuals have banded together to stop Black Bike week in WPB.

  • bubo

    Libs online were demanding that “white bike week” be canceled as well. Of course there is no “white bike week.” Just bike week.

    Black bike week on the other hand is a celebration of blackness akin to “freaknik” with motorcycles.

    Freaknik got so out of control with violence, rapes etc. that even the black mecca of Atlanta shut it down and told the promoters to take a hike.

    Oh and I guarantee that nobody who runs a business in Myrtle Beach would feel bad if this black orgy of violence was shut down, maybe besides the bail bondsmen. Contrast that with the real bike weeks in Daytona, which bring in hundreds of millions of dollars. White motorcycle enthusiasts spend money and help the local economy, blacks tear up the town.

    Moron what about this: Eight shootings happened during this weekend. Three people died.
    Don’t you understand ?
    Did this happen at the, OMG, I’m going to say it, the WHITE bike festival ?
    Cousre, I say let it go on, as long as they are killing each other screw it , it’s good for the country ..

  • Fantaman

    White biker rally = Peace and cheers.
    Black biker rally = Three dead seven wounded.

    Token testimony from a black whining about inequality? Check.
    Officials skirting around black violence? Check.

  • Snazzy Snook

    The problem I see with the writer of the article, is that, he actually thinks blacks are humans, as stated throughout the whole article ..
    I beg to differ ..

  • JJCULLEN

    I’ve been to many HAMC events, never had a problem, When ever I see a bantu ridding a Harley, I feel sorry for the motorcycle

  • ShermanTMcCoy

    For black motorcycle enthusiasts, I would recommend the “National Roundup.” I attended one back in 1995, I believe, and was treated very hospitality and with friendliness. And was invited to visit one black couple’s Bar-B-Que restaurant in Texas. Thugs did not seem to be in attendance. These seemed to be mostly middle-class black married folks. Almost like a blast out of the 50’s.

    One of the few times I thought we might just “all get along.” Sadly, later experiences didn’t back up that one pleasant one.

    • Tarczan

      That’s the way it should be, call it as you see it.
      There are plenty of outbreaks of spontaneous blackness, we might as well admit they occasionally act civilized.

      The trick is to be on guard, but still be willing to admit that maybe 105 can function in a civilized manner.

      • ShermanTMcCoy

        Ya know, I just realized that this was almost 20 years ago. Would I go today? Nope.
