Darkside MC Mission Statement


The Club

We are Darkside MC
The intent of this section is to give you an overview of the structure and philosophy of Darkside MC

History
Darkside was founded in 1992 by Brother Mike (Mr. Mike) Kinnard in Memphis, Tn. as a Car Club. By 1994 he had so many motorcycle riders, including himself, that he added MC to his state charter. By 1996 he was in Nashville with his clubs and the MC became the dominate of the 2. It has steadily grown as a family, and today we have chapters of Darkside MC in Memphis Tn, Sulligent, Alabama, West Point, Mississippi, Cleveland Tn, and the Mother Chapter in Nashville.

Respect
A serious MC club commands respect for one reason. Those who are correctly informed recognize the deep level of personal commitment and self discipline that one has to demonstrate and sustain in order to wear a patch. They realize that a club's "Colors" are closely guarded and the membership process is long and difficult. Other factors notwithstanding, they respect Patchholders for what they have accomplished by being able to earn and keep the patch they wear. This is respect born out of recognition of dedication and accomplishment. Darkside strives for respect for this reason. This is especially true as it pertains to those persons outside of the motorcycle community. This segment of society is by far the larger, and therefore represents a larger market for any fund raising activities that we might undertake. It stands to reason that cultivating a relationship with these people is important, and to be perceived by them as "Biker Scum" or a "Gang" would not be advantageous to the group. We will therefore conduct ourselves as upstanding citizens in every way... "Good neighbors" so to speak. The goal is to be admired and respected by the general public rather than feared. Darkside MC, and all of its members and guests, will always conduct themselves publicly in a highly professional manner.



Club Colors
The general public does not draw a distinction between different club colors. In many cases, they simply can't tell the difference: we're all "Biker Scum" to them. If one club causes a problem that touches the public sector, the offending club's identity is either confused or ignored and the heat comes down on all clubs. The general public does not make the distinction between a MC and an RC (Riding Club), therefore EVERYONE needs to be aware that no matter whether they are in, an MC, RC, or an Independent rider, their actions reflect on all in the motorcycle community. Darkside MC "police" ourselves to avoid such incidents.

Participation
A Patchholder will not discuss any club business whether it's about membership numbers, club goings on, or any member's personal information with anyone outside of the club. They understand that they are a Patchholder 24 hours a day whether or not they are wearing their colors. Everything they say or do in public can affect the club. They also understand that if they get out of line, that they are subject to be counseled for their own good and for that of the club. Wearing a patch is more than getting together for good times. It also means getting together for the other times too. It constitutes a lot of work. It's committing yourselves to a lifestyle in which you do not look for how your brothers or sisters can help you, but for ways that you can be of help to your brothers and sisters. Darkside MC always looks to give rather than to receive. All of this may seem very idealistic, and in some cases it's just that. But it is an ideal that all clubs profess and are always striving for in principle and practice.
Always be aware of the "Golden Rule" of conduct while traveling in club circles: If you give respect, you'll get respect. If you act with disrespect, then you'll be treated with the same.

Levels of Commitment
When someone earns their patch, it does not mean that he or she has reached the ultimate goal and from that point they can kick back and coast. Moving from guest to probation to Patchholder is not climbing from the bottom to the top, but rather more like climbing a constantly ascending slope, and in time becoming a stronger and more committed brother or sister. A person's probationary rocker and later their patch are merely presented in recognition of what they have demonstrated along the way. In this fashion, the more senior the Patchholder is in the club and the more they experience, the more of a brother or sister they should be to all.
Purpose of Probation / Prospecting
Probation is not an initiation, as you would find in a fraternity. It is instead a period of time that is sustained until the person, in every sense, conducts themselves with the respect that is mandated to be a Patchholder. It's a time in which:
 The attitude is conditioned so that he/she displays a sense of responsibility and respect toward the patch holders of the club, without which they will not develop a sense of respect for the group.
 He/she is educated in basic MC protocol and etiquette.
 He/she is given time to develop the habits that are basic to good security and good communications.
 To get into the habit of participating.
 To become accustomed to trusting the judgment, at times blindly, of those patch holders who will someday be his or her brothers and sisters.

The list could go on but the point here is to demonstrate that probationary period has definite objectives and that a person will go nowhere in the club if he/she is not aware of this and does not apply themselves to those ends. It's not possible to make a checklist of what is expected from a person in all cases. There isn't any formula for success, but the key is ATTITUDE AND RESPECT. Everything else can be learned in time, but a person's attitude comes from the heart.
