Respect is Respect
SRGR = Show Respect, Get Respect – One of the biggest beliefs and foundation of ALL Motorcycle Clubs and Riding Clubs around the world. Respect is not a magical word that you can demand it, Respect is earned through actions (helping people, looking after people, doing what is right, and showing mannerism and politeness towards others).
Due to recent occurrences at events over the past several months, in which, continued disrespect has been shown toward myself as well as toward other MCs, Traditional families and Mythical families here in RLC by 2 individuals of our RLC community. The latest occurrence happened the night before New Year’s Eve at an MC event, where Founder Monk and President Chiky mocked others as well as myself, for referring to our RLC family ties, titles, and earned ranks.
This Disrespect has been on going for several months now; as the list of screen shot URLs show. Many on here are in Traditional Families as well as the Mythical Families. Our Family the Dragon Knights Klan has been founded for over 5 years with no Drama, Saddlebags Crew MC has been founded for over 2 years.
Let me clarify something – no – I do NOT require my members to call me Pres – as many know I Grew-up MC – my momma and aunts had biker friends come over – I grew up calling some of them uncle and a few I call pops – not a sign of disrespect but as a sign of higher respect – I knew I could and can trust them more (if possible) than I can someone I call bro – now i’m older I call many of them brothers, but there are still a few I call unk or pops – one I will call pops until the day he goes on his final ride – me and him both know it – so if my members want to call me dad, brother Free, or even Free – to me that means they feel like they can trust me to that level – but for another pres or founder to say I am not a true pres because I don’t “Make” my crew call me a certain title/rank to show me “proper” respect – I say those are the ones missing out on what it really means to earn and show respect
