DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL
The purpose of the Oklahoma Human Rights Commission is "to work toward
removing friction, eliminating discrimination and promoting unity and
understanding among all the people of Oklahoma". It is specifically
charged to "alone and in cooperation with other organizations and
agencies, public and private, discourage discrimination and encourage
fair treatment of all persons regardless of race, color, creed, national
origin, age, handicap or ancestry". 74 Okla.. Statutes Sec 953. The
State policy of Oklahoma realizes that to advance the general welfare
of the State of Oklahoma, all citizens must be given the opportunity to
reach their full potential and has therefore declared that any inhibiting
condition caused by racial, ethnic, or religious factors, are matters
of concern to the State Government, which threaten the rights and privileges
of all the citizens, and the institutions of a free and democratic society.
30 Okla. Statutes Sec. 951. Any person whose exercise or enjoyment of
rights secured by the Constitution or Laws of the United States of America,
has been interfered with or attempted to be interfered with, may bring

The United States Supreme Court ruled in the case of Cohen vs. California,
403 U.S. 15 (1971) that individuals have the constitutional right under
the First Amendment, to wear clothing which displays writing or designs.

on the basis of clothing or club membership are subject to lawsuit.
Don't subject yourself to civil and criminal penalties and to expensive
and time consuming lawsuits. Don't discriminate against people wearing
colors or motorcycle attire.
With national motorcycle ownership on the rise, it's unfortunate
to note that motorcycle accidents - including those in Oklahoma
- are becoming more and more common. Each year, nearly 800 Oklahomans
are injured in motorcycle accidents, and that number is on the rise. If
you're thinking of taking to Oklahoma roads on a motorcycle, know
your rights - and know Oklahoma laws pertaining to motorcycle ownership
Oklahoma does require all motorcyclists to carry liability insurance. In
addition, anyone operating a motorcycle must have a motorcycle endorsement
in addition to a valid driver license. In order to obtain your Oklahoma
motorcycle endorsement, you must complete visual, written and skills exams
or present evidence of completion of a Motorcycle Safety Foundation safety
course to the driver examiner.
No matter how much safety training you've completed, Oklahoma motorcycle
accidents can and do happen. Common causes include driver fatigue, adverse
weather conditions, mechanical failures, inexperienced driving or alcohol
or drug use. While it's important to gather as much information
about the motorcycle accident as possible at the time, including the other
driver's insurance, driver license and license plate information,
you may wish to seek an experienced motorcycle attorney if you're
severely injured or involved in negotiations with the other party's
The right Oklahoma motorcycle attorney can mean the difference between

that can help make up for lost wages, cost of medical bills, and expenses
associated with future medical care.
