Jack Johnson was tried for transporting a white woman across state lines. (see link below, or even google it yourself) This is way back in the early 1900's ... His big crime wasn't the fact that he had a car and had some 'product' in it - it was the fact that he was the heavyweight champion .. and happened to be black.
When one thinks about it. The law/attitude at the time not only treated blacks bad, but women in general were treated like 'Product' ... when you can take a woman across state line and get punished for it - doesn't that treat women like a THING instead of a person? White society really has come a long way, babe.
