BIKIES have compared themselves with persecuted Jews and victims of South Africa's apartheid in a video protesting against new anti-bikie laws.
In Australia, another bikie says: "You can be branded a criminal just by talking to declared people, even if you haven't committed a crime."
A bikie with heavily tattooed forearms says, "I thought I lived in a country where I wasn't discriminated against because of the colour of my skin."

The U.S. Department of Justice defines Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs as organizations whose members use their motorcycle clubs as conduits for criminal enterprises[
"Outlaw Motorcycle Gang" or (OMG) according to the ATF.
One-percenter MCs (OMCs) do not allow women to become full-patch members, rather, women are submissive to the men, treated as property, victimized by forcing them into prostitution or street level drug traffickers, and are often physically and sexually abused. Any pay women receive is given to their individual men and sometimes to the entire club. Women's roles as obedient followers, and their status as objects, make these groups extremely gender segregated.
Membership in what authorities term "Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs" is often racist as well. For example, membership in the Hells Angels is not open to African-Americans or Hispanics
