If there was ever a doubt about the necessity for motorcycle clubs to unite for the common purpose of fighting profiling and discrimination, that doubt no longer exists. The culmination of numerous events has placed the motorcycle club community at the crossroads.
Choosing the wrong path creates the very real possibility that we will not Save The Patch, we will not successfully overcome the stigma from Waco, we will not successfully pass laws combating profiling and discrimination, and the culture of motorcycle clubs as we now know it will, for all intents and purposes, disappear.
Choosing the other path, the path of unifying the motorcycle club world for the purpose of securing our mutual right to exist free from discrimination, is the best chance the club community has of surviving and protecting the freedoms engrained in the Constitution.
The choice is simple. The Motorcycle Profiling Project embraces the path of survival and promotes the unification of the motorcycle club and motorcycle rights community based on the idea that rights of expression and association in a free society must be protected in order for a truly democratic society to exist.
Let us all choose the right path.
