    Ever since going back to pedal-only bicycle, it's been ROUGH OUT THERE!

    I get chased by dogs, people throw stuff out of windows of their cars and shout mean things, and to really top it off, Today, about an hour ago, I got cut off (On the sidewalk btw) by a Dodge Caravan, and I almost hit the van in the side, I shouted watch out, then that van came back out of another street, and three black guys jumped out of the van and ran after me, and one fast running black dude got a few punches/slaps in my side, but I hit him back with a metal tube, and outran him after that. I'm OK, but that could have ended up badly......:sweatdrop:

    I miss the engine, riding a bicycle is not the same without one! :ack2:

    Safe Riding Out there,

    as has been stated on site so many times
    a motor on your bike just may save your life !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    seriously -- glad that you got out of there ok..............

    just happens a while back a black guy cut me off when he was entering the freeway
    I hollered into his window as he went by
    then as I saw the size of that man
    as he waved at me with his finger -- wasn't a sign of affection
    I was glad that he didn't pull over !!!
    I may be dumb at times but I am not stupid -- most times anyway

    why do black people get away with that... if three white guys jumped a black guy on a bike it would be a hate crime?

    ok let's get this straightened out now -- before ??

    we have many gangs of all color these days
    and this same kind of thing
    may come from anywhere -- any color -- any time -- against anyone

    many crazy white guys looking for fights also
    lot of hate going around

    why can't we all just ride a motor bike and love each other ??
    now you got me sounding like Rodney King -- geeeese.....

    just the facts
    as seen
    from up top the Mountain

    this didn't sound gang related... It sounded like good old fashion black racism. they saw what they thought as a "nerdy white guy" on a bike and tried to take the easy target.

    How could it not be racially motivated? If not race why did they chase this guy down and hit him to the point he had to fight them off with a pipe? Think that would have happened if that guy would have been black? What if the three guys had been white... I bet we would have seen it on the news complete with a commentary by the "great" al sharpton.

    I heard of one (otherwise innocent) family the other week got jumped by a group of 50 black guys screaming

    "this is our world... this is a black world now"... they put the guy in intensive care for no apparent reason. here is the link http://www.ohio.com/news/50172282.html

    I agree with you mountain... why cant we all just get along. The problem is that white people are no longer the racists, and we live in a culture that insists black people cant be racist so we are forced to look the other way, or make excuses like "well we have gangs of all color"

    that fact is that 3 black guys turned around for the sole purpose of causing bodily harm on this poor guy, for no apparent reason other than he said "watch out" after being cut off... do you see it another way?

    I've noticed that racism seems to only work one way anymore... If you're white, you CANNOT be racist and have to be very very careful what you say and do. If you're Indian, Black, Oriental, Hispanic, or anything else you can be as racist as you want, it doesn't matter.

    On the way back from work one fine day (3 am actually) I ran into a couple of kids (No more than 19, maybe 21) who at first seemed interested in the motorized bike... but then informed me they would be giving it to them, or else. Showed a couple of knives. I dropped the bike and gave the two of them a quick education with a mag lite... call the police? Never! I'd have gone to jail for assault. What's up with that?

    Did manage to get a new knife out of the deal.

    nice... you should mount the knife and put it on your wall.

    I always carry my emersen mini-com for that reason.

    Can't argue with that
    and I do understand
    yes there is racism
    in this land

    I guess it's about
    what we keep in our heart
    always wishing for better
    like a brand new start

    I could join in
    and hate like other's
    but to remember one's I hurt
    also have mothers

    I have sinned just as they
    and been forgiven
    need to do the same
    regarding other's sinning

    I live in the white part of town
    redneck they say
    same kind of thing
    blacks don't get caught out this way !!

    I understand what you guys are saying
    worked through the darker side of town -- Parks Dept -- many years
    had to keep eyes wide open
    many of my fellow workes were hurt badly on the job -- attacked
    yes many times because of their color
    but are we to carry on the family tradition ?? hate ??
    a hard one to answer isn't it ??
    teach our little grandchildren to hate one's of color ??
    answer -- no
    but would I wish for my grandchild to marry a black -- no
    as I said -- it's a hard one isn't it ????

    If you are getting chased by dogs and black guys, I suggest one of those Stun Gun Batons...the ones that are 10" long and can reach out and touch someone.

    I plan to go to Yosemite in September. You bet your *** I'm going to bring those 10" long stun batons for Bear protection. It's better than laying down and pretending I'm dead.

    should we teach our grandchildren to be blind to hatred towards them? I know black people teach their children to hate white people... why else would a child look at complete stranger with hatred in their eyes? I don't advocate hate but I am not going to force my children to be bullied by other races just because of "white guilt". I never owned a slave... and nobody in my entire family lineage has ever owned a slave. To me this is blind bigotry at its finest.

    And whats with all the poems lately? The truth cannot be perfumed with poems.

    If you don't think white guilt exists move anywhere on the southern to central California coast.

    now you hit the true spot

    not sure where you live
    I have lived most of my life on the west coast -- Calif
    maybe some of those bleeding heart Calif libs got some white guilt
    but here where I live
    we ain't got none !!!

    there is not one person that I know or who I have ever met
    that thinks we owe anyone anything if you know what I mean ????

    payment has been paid in full

    most are blessed that they were brought over here

    Africa is a sad place to live today

    :afro: No racism here. We even have black smilies!

    There are good and bad of every kind in this world. It just sux that the bad ones ruin it for everybody. I've got some really good black friends but then again, I was the only white kid in my class till I hit 2nd grade and moved! Fist fights every day because I looked different than the rest!!! LOL!

    Suprisingly, maybe to some, I wasn't fighting w/ the black kids so much as the Latino's! The other black kids loved the crazy big mouthed white kid who wasn't affraid to get beat up by Hector and his eight brothers! LOL!

    I'm not saying that I like every black person I've ever met either, nor am I saying I dislike Latino's. Anybody who feel's I owe them something for nothing, will get told, Come get it!

    First off....
    ZnsaneRider: I am sorry you had to go through this attack. I am thankful you were able to use both "Fight & Flight" in order to survive!!

    Unfortunately, there are bad eggs in every color.
    I will not deny that hate & racism exist. It is worldwide.

    Please, no matter what our feelings are regarding this issue, Let's keep the Race War off of MBc.

    Great Idea, Mountainman!!
