They need their own section now?

See this is the kind of bullsh*t that divides a population not bring it together. The common bond is supposed to be a love of in this case Harleys, all well and good but instead of sharing a common ground us white Harley riders sit over here and the black Harley riders will be over there while the latin Harley riders have that corner, I guess the asian ones will want a spot too with nobody talking to anyone but their own kind. I suppose I'll have to push numero uno para Englaise next time I call a Harley shop.

This concept is the same with the population at large where you have in some sections of the country with large populations that don't even speak the common language.

I grew up in Quebec till I was 11 and it's the same thing there, instead of being a Canadian you're an English Canadian or a French Canadian, English speakers on one side of the room, French speakers on the other and everybody giving the other side stink-eyes. How are you going to get anything accomplished as a society? The answer is you're not, look at the mess Quebec is in now and the same thing will happen in this country if this sh*t continues.

True, a motorcycle manufacturers website is hardly a microcosm for society as a whole but the concept remains, fragmentation weakens not strengthens whatever it is be it an enthusiast group or a society in general.

HI Guys,

I have to agree. We used to be a "Melting Pot" and were a great Nation because of that. Now we are a checker-board, each with their own little square. Really sort of sad, and H-D isn't helping by pandering to separatists.

Anyway, if this is the way things are gonna go, I demand a whole section, complete with home-language newsletter, for we Celts! Gaelic is a living language, and we deserve it.....we deserve it....we deserve it.....(If I say it long enough, it may come true...)

Morgan Freeman made an interesting comment when an interviewer asked him what it would take to end racism. He said, "We need to stop talking about it." Continuously bringing it up doesn't help any more. There are lots of laws to address it and, frankly, the issue is kept alive for political reasons. IMHO the black "leadership" now acts to keep the inner cities as they are to ensure a permanent voting block. If blacks get good educations and moved out of the inner cities then Jackson and Sharpton would have no power base.

As far as Hispanics go they aren't even an actual different race as opposed to Caucasians since Spain is a European nation! It a fraud invented for political reasons again. They haven't been suppressed any heavier than the Irish or Italians were at one time. They aren't even really much of a minority any more and in many parts of the US are the majority.

Stop generalizing about race and handle the bias incidents that occur as individual events. Stop blaming and stereotyping.

I can give plenty of incidents where I was discriminated against because I'm white or I ride a motorcycle or I don't listen to country music or.... well, no one has it easy. You gotta take responsibility for your own life because you are the only one who is going to solve your problems.
