1DOWN MC FEATURED IN THE MAY 2013 ISSUE OF “THUNDER PRESS MAGAZINE”. SEE US ON PAGE #79.
IT’S A COLLECTORS ISSUE
My 24 hour visit to the ATL, Atlanta Georgia was something I personally really needed. People say I’m hard on Black females, I’m hard on the Black Motorcycle Set, but in my heart I always knew something just ain’t right!!
I knew it, and I knew I was right. I knew black people had more to offer that what I’ve experienced from the black folks I’ve been around my whole life living in California.
I guess it’s the Luisiana blood from my Grandpa & the Mississippi blood from my Grandma that rooted deep inside me that’s always made me strive to be a productive, respectful, positive man.
All I can say is that Black people culturally in California operate way different that Black people down South. My visit to the ATL was dam near 24 hours but I swear I soaked up every minute of it taking in just about every aspect of the black southern lifestyle.
What I want & demand from Black people in California is something that will never happen. Why? because there is no foundation out here, there is no unity, there is no black roots, there is no positive black leaders! In the South you have tradition, you have unity, you have roots, you have history, you have positive productive black business people that continue to fertilize the South with growth & hope! But unfortunately whenever a black person in California attempts to be productive, that person is hated on by black people and not supported because it’s become a normal cultural response of trying to destroy a black man versus supporting him to do better. Why? because culturally this is what california black people have taught themselves as a defense mechanism to hold each other back & down. “If I can’t do better, then why should I let him”. We have dam near learned how to in-prison ourselves.
I don’t just love only black people. I love all people White, Mexican, Asian, Middle Eastern & others, but I do have an invested interest to speak up on Black people because I’m black. I care about the future of Black people, cause it effects me.
After my visit to the South, I have come to realize that “It’s not me”!! It’s not me who is “Wrong for wanting black people in California to do better”. I always knew we were more positive, beautiful, and productive than what we portray. This became a fact to me when I saw it in the South.
California black people are accustomed to seeing White people “do good”, so when ever black people see a black person doing better than the average black person, they want to label that black person as “trying to be white”. Why? because seeing a black person do good is something foreign to most black people in Cali and it’s the only thing they can relate his actions to, but in the South, for a black man to see a black man doing good, it only stimulates the next black man to do better cause seeing successful black men in the South is something common.
LET ME STATE FOR THE RECORD!!!!!!! AS OF WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013
I know I have busted a lot of balls, hurt a lot of peoples feelings, and lost some peoples friendships over the things I have said about the Black Motorcycle Set and Black Females. I want you to spread this word as you have spread everything else I have said about the BMS. I want you to know that after today I will never never speak word on the BMS again. NEVER.
After my visit to the South I have come to realize that even though we are Black folks on the West Coast & we are Black Folks Down South, we are 2 different cultures!! I have come to except it that the California Black Culture is what it is and it will NEVER NEVER change!! I can live with it, but I do not have to except it or embrace it. I been living here 40 years, and I went Down South for 24 hours and fell in love with it, and felt like I had so much more to relate to the people with out there.
TO SUM UP EVERYTHING I HAVE EVER SAID ABOUT THE “BLACK MOTORCYCLE SET”, PLEASE UNDERSTAND ALL I HAVE EVER BEEN TRYING TO SAY IS THAT “I KNOW WE CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS… AS A PEOPLE”.
And after my visit to Atlanta, Georgia I am so happy that I always knew I was right and I stand behind everything I have ever said 111%.
I ENCOURAGE ALL RACES OF PEOPLE, White, Mexican, Asian, Middle Eastern, and mainly California Black People to take a visit Down South and feel the Black Culture and get a taste of some real Black Southern Hospitality and see how productive & respectful black people can be. Go see how fuckin sexy, fine, respectful, & productive Southern black females are!! Go visit Atlanta, Georgia, home to the most successful black business owners per square block than any place in the USA.
I’VE ALWAYS DEMANDED MORE FROM BLACK PEOPLE THEN WHAT THEY OFFERED CAUSE I ALWAYS KNEW WE COULD DO BETTER. I have come to realize that yes I have the power to change a person, but not a culture.
I want to wish everyone who read this Peace & Love. I wish you could feel as I do & see my vision, but until then, I can only share my experiences with you in hopes it can help fertilize change in you.

“BLACK PEOPLE: YOU WOULD DO BETTER, IF YOU KNEW BETTER”. – GOLDIE
Some people respect “the man code” and some people don’t give a fuck about it. The people who don’t give a fuck about it are the folks that do not need to be in a motorcycle club. Being in a motorcycle club has everything to do with you making a choice to live by RESPECT. You give it, You get it. You demand it, You earn it.
MEN NEED TO STAND FIRM & RESPECT WHAT IS BEING ASKED OF THEM BECAUSE THERE IS A REASON FOR IT.
**DO NOT FUCK YOUR BROTHERS OL’ LADY.
**DO NOT DATE OR FUCK YOUR BROTHERS OL’ LADY AFTER THEY BREAK UP.
**DO NOT INVITE YOUR BROTHERS EX OL’ LADY TO A CLUB EVENT.
**IF A CHICK IS PASSING HERSELF AROUND THE CLUB, DON’T LET HER LAND ON YOU. KEEP IT PUSHING. YOU CAN’T TURN A HOE INTO A HOUSE WIFE. DON’T BE THAT BROTHER WHO FELL FOR THE COMMUNITY ENTERTAINMENT.
**IF YOU MET A CHICK AT A MC EVENT & SHE HAS HISTORY WITH CLUBS, SHE COULD BE A PROBLEM. KEEP IT PUSHING.
**NO FEMALE SHOULD EVER COME BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR CLUB BOTHER. BROS BEFORE HOES!
**DON’T FORCE YOUR OL’ LADY TO BE AROUND THE CLUB IF SHE DOSEN’T WANT TO. IF YOU CAN KEEP HER 111% AWAY FROM THE CLUB AND SHE IS OKAY WITH IT, THEN TRUST ME, THAT’S THE BEST RECIPE.
**YOUR OL’ LADY NEEDS TO LOVE THE LOVE YOU HAVE FOR YOUR CLUB. IF NOT, SHE’S A SLOW CANCER FOR YOU & YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR CLUB IF YOU ALLOW HER TO BE. IF YOU HAVE TO MAKE A CHOICE. CHOOSE YOUR CLUB. YOU CAN REPLACE HER, BUT YOU CAN’T REPLACE YOUR CLUB.
REGARDING THE CLUB
**ALWAYS PAY YOUR DUES ON TIME.
**NEVER TALK CLUB BUSINESS WITH NO ONE.
**WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT, YES IT’S TRUE, THE CLUB COMES FIRST. BELIEVE IT OR NOT. DON’T GET MAD AT THE CLUB. THIS HAS BEEN THE FOUNDATION OF HOW IT HAS BEEN WAY BEFORE YOU EVER CAME AROUND. IT WAS CREATED BY MEN WHO HAD NOTHING BUT THEIR CLUB TO DEPEND ON. SO IF YOU CAN’T ALLOW THE CLUB TO BE FIRST AT TIMES, OR ALL THE TIME, THEN BEING IN A REAL MOTORCYCLE CLUB IS NOT FOR YOU.
FEMALES DON’T RUN SHIT ON THE MOTORCYCLE SET. MEN RUN THIS SHIT 111%. MEN DECIDE WHAT WILL HAPPEN, WHY IT WILL HAPPEN, WHEN IT WILL HAPPEN, AND IF IT’S GONNA HAPPEN. IF A FEMALE CLAIMS TO RUN SHIT, SHE’S SAYING IT TO A BITCH ASS DUDE WHO DON’T MATTER & IS NOT IN A RECOGNIZED MOTORCYCLE CLUB. ANY FEMALE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD NEVER DARE SPEAK THAT IGNORANT SHIT TO A REAL MC MEMBER!
IN THE REAL LIFE MOTORCYCLE CLUB WORLD, females are only recognized to be 1 or 2:
1. PROPERTY OF – You are spoken for. You are someone’s Ol’ Lady. You are off limits.
2. ENTERTAINMENT – You attend MC events to party & socialize.
NOTE: If a Woman is in a coed Motorcycle Club or all Female Motorcycle Club, then she is represented by her patch. It means that she is a member in a motorcycle club. It means she is NOT Entertainment, and she it not being represented as a Property Of. If a woman ranks over a MAN in their own club, that’s simply and only respected within their club. Many all Male motorcycle clubs do not recognize females in a MC. It is what it is.
A female Social club has absolutely NO ranking in the REAL MOTORCYCLE CLUB LIFESTYLE. A female Social club is a group of females that wear vest, and operate with a chain of command such as President, VP, Sgrt @ Arms, Etc, but they do not ride motorcycles. They attend fictions & throw functions in conjunction with the Motorcycle community. This is ONLY seen and allowed on the Black Motorcycle Set. This is NOT seen, recognized, or accepted on any other motorcycle club community.
GOLDIE has nothing against a Female MC member, or a Social Club female. I just want everyone to know “THEIR LANE”. You need to really know what you are getting yourself involved with. Who you are and how people view you THAT REALLY MATTER.
My views, my club by-laws, and how I operate were grounded & founded by the true root of the BIG motorcycle clubs that have been around for many many years that have stayed loyal to how things really should be & stay! You know, that % of motorcycle clubs that take this lifestyle real real serious. You better know, or you better find a new hobby, cause this is a lifestyle that 1DOWN MC takes 111% serious.
If you agree with me, I would assume you to be someone educated in the real MC lifestyle. If you disagree with me, then unfortunately you need to be educated and you have been misguided by the wrong teachings and you should not take another step towards this lifestyle until you learn the history of THE REAL MOTORCYCLE CLUB LIFESTYLE.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH GOLDIE DEWITT
(Q) RUMOR HAS IT THAT GOLDIE DON’T FUCK WITH THE “BLACK MOTORCYCLE SET”. IS THIS TRUE?
GOLDIE: NO. It’s false. This was created by those who unfortunately never had the chance to meet me in person, fellowship with me, or someone just being hateful. I would assume this came a few years ago when I made some changes in my club on how we operate. People need to understand that just because I’m Black, don’t mean I’m predisposed to only function amongst Blacks on the Black Motorcycle Set. I wasn’t raised that way. I was raised with Mexicans, Whites, Blacks, & others. I am a very culturally diverse man, and so is the movement of my motorcycle club. My club is mixed with Whites, Blacks, Mexicans & others, and we all come from a background of being raised in multi cultural communities. I am Black and Proud, so by Root I am forever connected with the Black Motorcycle Set and I take pride in being a very positive motivator and leader to the Black Motorcycle Set.
(Q) SO IS THERE A PROBLEM, IS THERE A ISSUE? WHAT BOTHERED YOU ABOUT THE “BLACK MOTORCYCLE SET”?
GOLDIE: DAM, this takes a man of steal balls to face these questions, but I’m DOWN to do it. In my opinion, the Black Motorcycle Set is too saturated with: Shit talking male civilians, Shit talking female civilians, Social clubs, New Clubs, Gang bangers, Pop up clubs, Ex-members with attitudes, Riding clubs, and last but not least, not enough real life recognized official Motorcycle Clubs. So if you ask me, I’d say the BMS dam near consist of only about 35% real Motorcycle Clubs, that matter. Who that 35% is, I’ll let you decide that. Traditionally, Motorcycle Clubs only functioned with Full Patched Members of their own club and invited guest. Other clubs fellowshipped with other clubs by invite also. It was a privilege to be invited to a MC function or clubhouse. Now you got just anybody showing up with nobody to vouch for who that person or group is. Fuck that. I’m not with that. I wasn’t a biker in the 70′s & 80′s, but I would assume, the internal mechanics of the BMS was a bit safer during that time. I would have to contribute the Cancer being MONEY the reason the BMS started to get contaminated. Clubs wanting to make more money, so they started to open up the gates wider on who they invited to their parties, and every since then, it’s done nothing but turned into a flood gate of madness to the Black Motorcycle Set.
(Q) SO WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO ABOUT IT?
GOLDIE: WHAT can I do about it by myself? Absolutely nothing. I’m not strong enough to do it on my own, and it couldn’t happen over night. For as long as it’s been going on, it’s now turned into a culture, a way of living. For me to change anything, it’s like me messing with death. I would be messing with people’s money, and also messing with some Motorcycle Club’s clubhouse rent money. So, like I said, I can do nothing, but mind my own business, and by me making the choice to mind my own business, is what brought us to this interview in regards to the accusations against me.
(Q) WHY DON’T YOU WEAR OTHER CLUBS SUPPORT PATCHES?
GOLDIE: Let me be the first person that I know of to dam near go on record and say “That’s a Black Thing”. Much love to ALL clubs that embrace that tradition, but as a President I do not. BUT!! Here is a situation that happened because of me being nice. When 1DOWN MC came to the BSM, we never wore any other clubs support patches and we never had supporter patches to sale. People would always ask, so I decided to get some made and I gave them out, i didn’t sale them. I never charged anyone for a support patch that wanted to show love to my club. I never had any intention on wearing any other clubs support patch on my vest, but 1 day I was asked if I wanted a supporter patch from a club we would fellowship with during that time. So, I went ahead and accepted it and put it on. Me and 2 of my other members ONLY. Total of 3 of us is what I allowed. Well, long time down the road, I got some new Vest designed for my club and the entire club was getting brand new vest, and with the new vest, we had a new direction, but I still felt the way I did from the start. I was not supportive of wearing another clubs patch on my vest. So, when I got my new vest, I made the choice to not put that clubs support patch on my vest. It seemed to not be excepted well by that other club and I’m okay with that. My club vest is sacred for my club patches only. If any club wants to value my relationship with them based on me wearing their club patch on my cut, fuck you! Funny thing: a club can wear another clubs support patch but never fellowship with them, but that’s okay? Not in my world. If I fellowship with you, that means I support you, and if I support you, you gonna see me in person at your events and if I’m at your events, it’s because we respect each other and it’s not about money. For anyone who has a 1DOWN MC support patch on, you bet your ass they been sweated by folks asking “why you wear that, they don’t support you back?” Well, that person wearing that support patch is someone I am dear to and if they ever took it off, it would NOT change shit between us. I’m sorry but I’ve seen things I just can’t forgive, such as a Male Full Patch member of a MC wearing a Female Support Club patch on his vest. Oh hell fucking no!! Enough said on this shit!!!
(Q) DO YOU LIKE BLACK FEMALES? WHAT’S UP WITH THIS “BOOGAWOLF” STUFF?
GOLDIE: Yes I like Black females. I like attractive females. I like attractive Black females that take care of themselves, that groom them selves that present themselves as a woman. Do I have a certain look/type of Black woman I am attracted to? Yes I do. I do not find all Black females attractive. Nobody does. Not all females find me attractive… that’s part of human nature. As mentioned I was NOT raised only around Black females. I was not raised to only date Black females. I lost my virginity to a White Swedish chick who was 18 and I was 13. I can’t tell you what it was like cause it was 28 years ago, but from there I’ve smashed white, mexican, black, asian, middle eastern, and some others. Point being, growing up around a community of Black folks ended when my mom moved us from Inglewood in 1986. We got to Ontario, CA on February 4, and I lost my virginity on March 6. Yup, that quick, 1 month later simply because we moved. She was a White foreign exchange student from Sweden. (she just found me on Facebook, but i haven’t excepted her friend request) The next girl I met was my neighbor named Jennifer C, she is black. We dated for like a week, and I’m sure I tried to fuck, but I didn’t get no cootie. The next chick was Shereece W, she was black. We dated for like a week, and I’m sure I tried to fuck, but I didn’t get no coochie. So, Shereece later invited me to her friends houseparty and yup, her friend was a chubby White girl and I smashed her and we ended up dating for about 2 years. Soon after finding out she lost her virginity by me. Can’t tell you who she is. She’s weird now. So, I did try early to get some black pussy, but they were being to tight for my 13/14 year old hormones! But, later in life, I smashed a couple. I’d say black girls make up about 3% of the females I’ve smashed. Maybe because it’s not a lot to choose from where I lived. Maybe It’s me. Maybe I’m not their type As for “Boogawolfs”!! These are all the ugly, tacky, ghetto, low class, no class having black chicks on the BMS that need to be banned from the set. There are many beautiful attractive black females out there on the BMS but you can’t seem to find them because they are camouflaged and scared away by all these “Boogawolfs”. These Boogawolfs have branded themselves as what females the BMS has to offer. This can’t be true!! I fucking hate looking through BMS event photos and saying OMG what the fuck! Is she serious! Why the fuck do they do this shit, wear this shit, look like this! Why aren’t these female checking each other! I wish all Black Females on the Black Motorcycle Set would make it a point to see to it that Each 1, Teach 1. I personally feel that only about 3% of the Black Female Biker Set is smash-able. So, yes, maybe 3 out of 10, and thats cutting it close. You think I’m lying? You’re just in denial, or maybe you’re a Boogawolf! Personally I like to see that 3% change to 70% and with that change would come a more positive BMS. Trust me, cause Ugly causes Hate! We need more beauty.
(Q) DO YOU FEEL THE BMS IS WRONG AND YOU ARE RIGHT?
GOLDIE: Wow, that’s a loaded question, but I do understand what you asking. No I don’t. I must say, I respect the BMS because it stood the test of time and it still is alive today and it is still very active. As a President, I must make choices that have a crucial impact on my club today, tomorrow, and it’s future. I say this because I’ve seen the immediate effect the choices I’ve made for my club has had on the BMS already, and I swear on God, I don’t regret none of them. If there was ever a event thrown on the BSM with ONLY that 35% I spoke on earlier, you bet your life 1DOWN MC would be there with out hesitation. Unfortunately, due to the BMS being over populated with 65% NON-MC, these are the voices that tend to speak the loudest, and be most ignorant because they have nothing to loose and they don’t operate under no chain of command. So, who really runs the BMS, who really dominates the BMS? I’ll let you decide that.
(Q) IN CLOSING IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAY TO A PERSON, A CLUB OR THE BMS?
GOLDIE: OH SHIT this could be tricky! Okay let’s see. 1. I have nothing to say to anyone particular. 2. If I had anything to say to a club, it would be to the 35% of the BMS. To the remanning 65% of the BMS, I would say to them, JOIN a MC, learn MC etiquette, and if you can’t respect the true lifestyle of a Full Patched Member of a Motorcycle Club, then find some place else to kick it.
Yes, there are some clubs out there that claim to have made the choice to NOT fellowship, function, or take part in any 1DOWN MC events and I am totally okay with that. The way it works out, those are clubs that are simply missing out on some good times. It’s their loss not ours. We always invite everyone, and our events are always FREE. We don’t want your money, but we do welcome your fellowship.
So let me answer the first question the way I see it. Who don’t Goldie fuck with? Well, 1DOWN MC including myself, has made the decision to surround ourself around people that enjoy our company and people that we enjoy being around. We don’t care if you’re Mexican, White, Black or other. 1DOWN MC will not tolerate being around trashy, low class, ignorant, tacky, no respect having, no MC etiquette having people regardless of what Motorcycle Set it is.
I hope this answered some of the long awaited questions some other folks may have always wanted to hear from you. Does it make a difference to me? No, but if it does for anyone out there, then this was worth it. Thanks for the interview.
“We wear that BRIGHT ASS ORANGE & BLACK”
I just wanted to wish everyone a Fun, Safe weekend. Don’t drink and drive. Look out for each other.
All you motorcycle riders, pay attention to the road. Watch the road and watch the cars. All you folks in cars, watch for motorcycles.
If you going to a motorcycle event, and it’s a night time event, and you plan on drinking, and it’s not mandatory you ride your bike, have a friend drive you or carpool. Showing up on your bike is not as important as you never returning home.
1DOWN MC is a GO HARD CLUB. We go hard at everything we do. The only club we want to do better than, is ourselves. We strive to be closer than we were yesterday and in a better place than we were last year.
I wanted to write more, but I’m gonna end this here. What’s on my mind is another topic.
“Together Forever, Forever Together… 1DOWN MC and We Tougher Than Leather”!!
