Well, you can’t exactly disagree with this decision after several lives were taken at this year’s South Carolina Black Biker Week.

A lot of people feel salty about this, but come on, if we can’t behave, then we don’t deserve! (IAMBRIANJAMES.COM)

Via Fox News:

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

But Mayor Jake Evans says he has no plans to end the event in a community that, during the days of segregation, was one of the only places on the South Carolina coast where blacks were welcome. But he’s willing to discuss increasing law enforcement with neighboring communities.

Brad Dean of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce says Atlantic Beach has the right to put on whatever festival it wants. But he says neighboring communities can’t stand idly by when an event has such a negative impact.
