Framed Bikers

Ralph Gibson


  1. Oakland Ca. is maybe the only place 2 brothers could ride like this and not be hassled for DWB
    (driving while Black)

  2. Wow, I think you nailed it... Oakland, CA - 1973.

    Had this happened in the town I grew up in - and when I say 'this' I mean two black men driving a motorcycle - it would have made the front page of the local paper.
    Things have gotten more liberal but even today, if you're black and walking through Glen Ridge at night you're bound to be stopped.
    Luckily the entire town is lit by gaslight, so the coppers (either too stupid or oblivious) can't see ya anyway.
