AP, Washington Post and Fresno Bee call it a “multi-racial dance”

Colin Flaherty is the author of White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it.
The Fresno Bee called it a “dance” sponsored by a “multi-racial” motorcycle club. So did the Washington Post.
But this was no dance: This was the “official after party” for the
largest gathering of black motorcycle clubs on the West Coast. A weekend
collection of violence and mayhem of 5000 or more black bikers that
descend on Fresno twice a year for the “Half Way Run.” So named because
it is the half way spot for bikers from the Los Angeles and Oakland
areas to gather and party.
Or shoot each other.
