A small homage to Prince, comes at the end of this piece, written many years ago, but the fight continues …..

Yes Yes folks,
Wow, are these posts becoming more and more infrequent !!!
Well, all for good reason, the system makers and the people who, blindly fall in line, are having quite the time currently !
Trump makes it to become the Republican Nominee for the US Presidency, seemingly now, with the backing of a CERTAIN, David Cameron ….. Any surprises there ???
Well, maybe just a slight one, as his new London Mayor, is none other than Muslim, Sadiq Khan !!!!!
Well, David’s announcement of, let’s say, a level of support for Donald, should make for some, interesting confrontations, with the new London Mayor, who, if i’m not mistaken, should be deemed as quite the security threat, according to all the Islamophobia talkers, thus I guess, the Brexit Klans, sorry, Clans … !!!!!
So, are you one of them ?
Well, good luck with having a Muslim Mayor, this should all make for very interesting times, unless of course, he is a turncoat, which should have Isis, Isil & their buddies plotting some kind of let’s say, disturbance, due to his appointment.
NOT … that i’m suggesting they should do any such thing of course !!!!
I’m just speculating a lil’ bit, if we are to believe the medias’ representation of the Islamic Threat, to peoples safety, across the globe, but especially, in Europe and the US of A right ???
Something doesn’t quite seem to be adding up, but these days, i’m realising, it’s just me !
We’ve recently had some sad losses, well, losses, depending on your point of view. I didn’t get the chance to meet Tony Cozier, the cricket commentator and voice of much that has related to, Radio or TV Commentary, on West Indies cricket, for basically all of my 40 odd years, and then some !!!!!
The one thing I wasn’t aware of, was that he had played for the infamously, racist club of Wanderers, which, leaves me thinking that, the fact that he was white, one can only hope, was not the reason he essentially became the main voice of West Indies Cricket !
Only those who truly knew him, will be able to answer that one. I just hope my thoughts are wrong, as he always seemed to be a decent enough fellow, but hey, White and Bajan, generally, is not such a positive mix, anyway, moving on …….
The biggest loss of the last few though, has to be Prince, say what you like about him, lil’ freak, illuminati puppet, or, whatever you will, but what a musical talent !!!!!
He was as good a live performer as i’ve, EVER seen !!!!!
…. and i’ve seen my fair share !!!
…. and he was just a phenomenally gifted musician, just from the volume of instruments he could play, and the legendary stories of his levels of productivity, let alone creativity, that would seemingly have him working in the studio, having just gigged for a night.
My enduring memory will be from his set of O2 performances, and seeing this diminutive figure come on stage at the afterparty, in a HOODED, Yellow Suit, icon of much, from sexuality, to fashion and sonic arrangement.
A Genius of the music art form, who is already, and i’m sure will be, missed for many many years to come, RIP Sir …. for the work you put in while you were on this earth, you deserve it !!!
Moving on, I have now entered my 46th year of life on earth, which I do, in no small form, give thanks for, however, as said, so much is changing in this world of ours, and as I have said on numerous occasions before, I don’t see too much of it as being progressive, however, this is probably, just me.
Thankfully, my vibes have brought me to the Bajan’ Countryside, in a lovely remote location, essentially, getting me further and further away from people, not that i’m anti-social or anything, but, have become happier to indulge in listening to peoples bullchit’, less and less frequently, as time goes on, because there’s only so much a man’s brain can take, when it operates on planes of logic, thought and common sense, which is clearly, NOT SO COMMON in the majority, sadly !!!
Waking up to a view of the East Coast of Barbados, and a landscape of green, that surrounds, as well as horses, cats, dogs, goats, chickens & a peacock, who happens to be quite the noisy fellow, is indeed, paradise like !!!!!
Especially when, feeling the sea breeze flow through the verandah, where I now do much of my chilling and contemplating, is indeed a blessing that year 46 of my life is glad to have as it’s beginning !
Thus, much that was important to me, is becoming less so, due to the peaceful vibes I now have, as well as the decent people who have embraced having me in their space, which I am very grateful to them for !!!
They are indeed, a rare breed, who are hard to find on this island, but they do exist, and, when receiving such levels of respect and warmth, one can only let peoples’ issues pass you by …..
A very cool place to be, mentally and spiritually, not to mention, the fresh fish that the locals know how to prep, tasty oh yes … VERY TASTY !!!!!
At no time in my life have I ever felt at this much peace, a beautiful thing, which is a change I am happy to embrace, and shall attempt to keep, for as long as is now possible !!!!!
The city and it’s hustle and bustle, is something i’m happy to forego, to make the countryside my home ……
Change …. in this case, is proving so far, to be the catalyst for rest,
and development of more than my bank balance, or, my personal goals, but simply, an aid to retaining my sanity and therefore, my peace of mind.
Stay blessed y’all, and remember, peace of mind is indeed, HARD TO FIND !!!!!
…. but, when you do get some …..
My advice is … Hold onto it for as long as you can !!!!!

Well, I really didn’t like, ” Man of Steel ” …
…. and in general, think that Superman is a pusshole’, when it really comes down to it ….
Always tekin’ rasshole liks, when he got so much powers at his disposal ?!?
So, the conflicting reports on the film so far, have me intrigued, so, i’m hoping to see it, either tonight, or, in the next couple of days …….
But, like Big Daddy Kane, once said ….
I’m another guy who will, ” Rip that F’ing S of his chest, if he tries to mess ” …..
So, I hope that this trailer is not gonna be the best part of the film,
but have to say, I do like it ……

Okay people, so, as a follow up to my last post ….
Here’s proof that people, in fact, sadly, mostly those claiming to be artists, are PUSSIES … !!!!!
YUP …. I said it ….
PUSSIES … !!!!!
They are normally quick to run for cover, when heads speak freely about the world and it’s woes, or better still, people and their willingness to be penned in like sheep !!!
It’s incredible how they, and obviously, those who claim to appreciate, freedom of expression and artistry, are quick to distance themselves from anything that is remotely, anti-establishment …..
Art that has, NOT BEEN DONE, for people to say that … “They Love It !”
or, even worse still …..
because it’ll get them a pay cheque ….
These are the same fuck-holes, who are quick to claim that they …
” Keep It Real ” … with their art ?
Hmmm …. What a CROCK !!!
Imma’ hit that, ” Keep It Real ” … subject, down the line, but, as said in my two previous posts …
If Donald Trump can wantonly, speak on things in such an unabashed fashion, and not have to deal with the ….
“Expression Police” … as it were …
…. who want to restrict, and deny exposure, to the type of artistry, that this kind of piece represents, one where frank and honest assessments are expressed, that can actually be validated, rather than debated, and then dismissed as some kind of conspiratorial nonsense …..
Then … SO CAN I … !!!!!
So, once again ….
should leave this alone … !!!!!!
The rest of you, well, I hope you pay close attention to what you hear, and pass this on to those who you know, can deal with talk that is REAL !!!!!
…. because ….
compared to Trump, Cameron & the rest of their ilk of Political Figureheads ….
These words are actually, contrary to the title,
FAaaaaaaaaaaRRRRRRRRRR ……… from being …….

Okay folks, so, in doing my catch up on things i’d written a while back, that I wanted to post at the time, but couldn’t …..
Here’s one that was inspired by what I saw in different parts of the world, at a time where terror acts were all over the news, and clearly, in most peoples’ minds ……
So, having spoken in my last post, about the madness that is the Presidential Candidacy Race, I have to follow that post with this, which was one written on my flight back from LA to Miami, having completed my trip to New Zealand, via Australia, Fiji, Honolulu, LA & Miami, pretty much, days after the Paris Bombings, and then travelling through the US, soon after San Bernardino, etcetera …..
So, this post is a reflection on, the attitudes, reaction and general vibe of people in the aftermath of Paris, and then of course, the effect that a certain Donald Trumps’ speeches seemed to be having on people ………..
So, here I am on my second, American Airlines flight in two days, well, three, if you include the time difference ….
FUCK …. do I hate travelling on American Airlines ….. !!!!!!
The stewards are mostly, old and decrepit looking, and really do seem to have their head so far up Donald Trumps’ ass, that, to me, unless you’re white and wearing a Klan Hood, their attitude is a F’ing disgrace …. !!!
Again, it obviously isn’t all of them, however, certain attitudes are far too prevalent, when it comes to reaction, and service.
Now, i’m NO Oprah lover like that, but, have to say that i’m down with the Oprah’ statement that suggests that, basically …..
“There still exists, a generation of old white people, who need to hurry up and die already !!!!!”
(If I have Mis-quoted her, then it’s not to be attributed to her of course, but you get the gist !)
…. and that’s ….
On … THE REAL … !!!!
Now, of all industries in the working world, judgement should surely be limited in a field such as that of international travel, but wow, is it prevalent !!!!!
As I tell people all the time, even, stupid black people !!!!!
The moment you do not fit the, Ben Carson, Conservative, black citizen, type model, a crown of a hairstyle like mine, quickly provides reactions from people, who seem to think that every one of us who rocks such styles, are either, stupid, or, deserving of some kind of second class treatment, or worse still, treatment that indicates a complete unwillingness to acknowledge our existence !
Now, when we black folks act up, all of a sudden, we’re being ignorant !!?!!
Well, as much as I like Trumps’ frankness, there is a level of ignorance, bigotry, as well as, double standards, that i’ve seen in him, that airline stewards ….
(Particularly, those who work for American Airlines)
…. seem to have already adopted … !!!!!
The fact that they’re cheap as fuck, and that their aircraft designs, work like cans for sardines, may well affect the attitude of people flying on them, however, having undertaken the job, the staff should be professional … !!!!!
In fact, they shouldn’t get to be stewards if there is even a smidgeon of ignorance in them ….. !!!
…. but there it is …..
The Trump Effect !!!!!
I sense that those who’ve been forced into playing the, Diplomatic Card, when it comes to dealing with …. Non-Whites, over the last few years, are feeling as though, Good Ol’ Donald, has made it acceptable for them to rear their, deep rooted ignorance, in how they deal with, as said, blacks in particular, like myself, who do not, and ….
WILL NOT, play the ….
” WHATEVER MASSA’ !!! “, vibe, just to get by !!!!
It ISN’T a pre-requisite of my existence, as a black male, to, do things, in a manner that DOESN’T suit me, to appease other races insecurities, especially when, the rules of the book are constantly, flouted, and broken, by white people !!!
…. from leaving shit, unattended on planes, so they can stow their carry on baggage, to, standing in aisles, when the seatbelt sign is on.
I dunno, having spoken to an elderly woman from Israel on the flight into Miami, who has lived in Miami, for over 30 years, who, upon hearing me say that I like Trumps, unbridled expression, dived in on some, essentially, Anti-Arab rhetoric, and, Pro UK & France talk, which was the trap set, by my calm, English Tones, after an initial misunderstanding with her over seating ….
It has become clear to me, from the looks I received in the US, from, pretty much …. ALL RACES, including my own … !?!
…. that ….
“The Trump Effect” ….
…. is already, re-igniting, the divisive nature of human beings, which, the lady from Israel, finally expressed in her rhetoric.
Essentially, that, education has been forsaken, for technological devices, and attitudes, that are divisive !
From TV shows, like Homeland, to, Fox News in the US, it’s clear that as much of a circus show, as Trumps’ Campaign is proving itself to be, there is indeed, a very dangerous effect, that has yet to reach its peak … !!!
A peak that, if the world’s people are not careful, could escalate into a World War Three type, scenario, if Mr. Trump, or, people of his ilk, be they, Democrat, Liberal or Republican, reach the Whitehouse Hot Seat, this time around ….
So people ….
HEED THESE WORDS !!!!!
STOP … with the ignorance, arrogance & judgements ….. !!!!!!
…. and deal in something
…. ” BIGGER ” …
HUMANITY & EQUALITY … !!!!!
Show some sense of balance in your views, and remember that, the majority of those using their status to preach, are not doing it for your benefit, but, in most cases, are doing it for their name to go down in history, and for GREED ..,,
Beware INDEED …..
” The Trump Effect ” …… !!!!!
Peace & Love people ….
and YES, I really did write this at the end of 2015 !!!

Yes Yes People ……. !!!
Goodness me, these posts are getting less and less frequent, but thankfully, for a change, in this instance, it’s because i’ve been as busy as those, now choosing to create, levels of fear, destruction and terror, across the globe … !!!!!
Belgium today, and of recent, Paris, Nigeria, The U.S., South Africa and heaven knows where else on this seemingly, god-forsaken planet of ours !
So, i’ve been busy getting down to some, musical creativity, which I shall be sharing shortly, but, travelling has drained me somewhat, and I have other dramatic changes, about to take shape, within my life, that will, in all honesty, avail me further separation from people, than I already have, but that’s a whole other post !!!
So, before I get to the interesting stuff, I cannot possibly ignore this Election Race, Sanders & Clinton vs The Trump road show, of well, Hoopla & Encouragement of well, free expression …..
Well, for him at least ….. !!!
I am hearing and seeing all sorts of strange talk, and even, support for Clinton, as if she’s some kind of saint ?
Disdain for Donald, as if he was literally, the duck who bears his name, being dismissed by everything & everyone as a blowhard, who is destroying the …
” Good Ol’ Values ”
of the ever so … ONCE GREAT U.S. of A-holes …..
Well, he seems to be doing a great job of making it easy to believe that America is filled with them !!!
At least, at the levels of society, where he and his pals are at !
Did I say pals ?
Hmmmm, well, they are clearly NOT SO PALLY now, or, are they … ???
I even heard a man tell me that he feels that Trump is doing, whatever it is his campaigning does, to help Clinton win ?!!!?
Well, anything’s possible when dealing with the multitude of …
Blood-sucking insects, that define the word, Poli – Tics’ ….. !!!!!!
It’s amazing to me though, that when elections are not at the forefront of everyones’ minds, that people seem to, pretty much, all concur that politicians are liars and cheats, and are not to be trusted, but, when Election time does come around, especially in as influential a country, as America is ….
People suddenly find ways to validate their supporting, as many now claim, the better of the evils being offered up …. ?!?
Well, now that I am watching the new Lucifer TV series, one has to wonder if people, as a matter of course, will accept wickedness on some …. ” Just because … “, basis, rather than deny wickedness, as soon as they sniff any sense of it, which you’d think a logical person would do, but in 2016, logical behaviour now seems to be as rare, as a Trump Rally that preaches love and unity, well almost … !!!
There are one or two stand up people left, but, I do literally mean, ” The Odd “, one or two !!!!!
Peoples’ memory spans, and / or, ability to dismiss things that they know deep down in their hearts, that they are uncomfortable with, is truly astonishing … !!!!!
…. but hey, we’re al about to get penned in, if Trump, or, Boko Haram, or ISIS, get their way right.
Did you get what I did ?
The best play on words I saw recently, is that the west put the IS … in CRISIS … !!!!!
One to think on …….
The wheels have definitely, been set in motion, via Mr. Trumps’ rather, INFLATED EGO, and rhetoric !!!!!
However, instead of censoring, or brandishing him as being essentially ….
” Brutally Frank “, with his opinions, be they, for the camera or not, people are letting his talk, limit their rational thinking, in my opinion !
It is unwise to suggest that he can’t win this presidential race, simply because of the level of monetary influence and power, that he has, it is also unwise to trust in people who are using, YOUR MONEY, to finance their bid for office !
Unless you are gonna be able to influence their policy movements, if they get the BIG JOB !!!!!
” Go Fund Me “, type campaigns, for presidential hopefuls, is so crazy to me, that I really don’t even think I can express what I feel about individuals, parting with their, hard earned cash, to put it into, what are, essentially, hot air balloons, which would be a suitable description for the likes of all those running their chops about doing what exactly ???
Making America … GREAT again,
Making America … Unified & Peaceful
Making America … Proud again
Blah di Blah Blah …
F’ing blah ….. !!!!!
I think people need to take a second, and maybe, check through the histories of the combatants, and really assess how trustworthy these people are, from Clintons admission of being essentially, down with the types of individuals who stood for the ideals of Eugenics and basically, white supremacy …..
Such as, Margaret Sanger, look her up, the video is somewhere to be found on the, “Inter-web”, and then maybe, all these women chatting the …
“Oh well, it’s about time a woman got into power in the US.” … CROTCH … !!!
…. might wanna, just check her credentials, from a historical standpoint, and then maybe re-think, just a little bit … ?!?
The sterilisation of black people, appears to have been one of Sangers’ beliefs, as being beneficial to the human races’ progression !?!
Can a woman who claimed to support such a person, be suitable for a country that can’t even get past colour, when it comes to the Oscars ?!?
As said, these days, I choose not to express my point of view so much, which is a personal choice, as it’s become clear that, it’s really becoming somewhat of a literal
FREE FOR ALL …. out there !!!
… from sexuality, and the progressive growth in the pushing of certain imagery, into the psyches’ of the generations to follow, to the continual, confusing situation regarding Muslims ?!?
Having just returned from the UK, for all the apparent, Anti-Muslim Sentiment, I really saw, no level of panic amongst those walking next to, and or, working with Muslims.
In fact, England seems, as it always does, to be a bed of roses, COLD & POOR Roses, for the most part !!!!!
However, nothing too thorny was on display ?!?
So, when the politicians, or aspiring ones, like Mr. Trump, run their gums about the same people, who they seem, moments later, to be happy to be shaking hands, and doing business deals with, people should just, STOP and THINK, for a second, before jumping on the first train to, ” Hatesville’ “, behind some talk that essentially, garners attention, and stirs up a melting pot, that, the normal, ” Average Joe “, has to dip his hand in and confront, on a daily basis, which is one, that in all reality, isn’t necessarily one, that scaremongers, like Nigel Farage & their ilk, keep spouting vitriol about, that states a need to retain, some sense I guess, of Sovereignty, in this, ever changing world of ours.
I always find it interesting, when a man on the street, like say, my good self, tells it as it is, and is, Immediately labelled as being ….
Aggressive, Vicious, or even, BRUTAL, in my use of language and expression ?
Well, now y’all DEFINITELY KNOW, what brutal talk is … and it ain’t coming from the likes of me !!!!!
It’s coming from a man whose in, designer, tailored, bespoke suits, and who is a business mogul who has buildings named after himself !!!
The type of man who has a TV Show, that many, who are trying to slam him now, have probably indulged in watching, and, dare I say, found entertaining !
I actually, quite like Donald Trump, simply because …..
If he’s lying about his feelings, to get to the BIG SEAT, he’s pretty good at it !!!
However, if he is exposing the REAL Attitudes, of those in the corridors of power, particularly, Republicans, and garnering support from Americans, for speaking the things that most, have been and are currently thinking, but won’t say, then I applaud him, because he’s about the ONLY one doing it, including Mr. Obama !!!!!
Mr. Trump has done so, in a way that isn’t covered in sweet talk, to get people to take a nice, small slice of the cake, while he eats big !
You know why …. ?
He already eats BIG, and is basically telling the world, if I get to be THE MAN, there’s about to be some,
REAL CHANGE, UP IN THIS BITCH … !!!!!!
… and, the poor may not even get any of the loose change, that he ever has in his pockets, i’d suggest, if he ever has any loose change in his pockets, at all now !!!
The warning is a STARK ONE !!!
Things may just become, REALLY BRUTAL, if people don’t start to recognise that, nice suits, ties and fancy speeches, do not, good leaders make ….. !!!
What does ?
Well, if you can pick one, throughout American, Political History, then feel free to let me know ……
For the meantime, I suggest you look beyond the fancy talk, rhetoric and Political Hoopla, that is going on, and see through the show, cos they are all very impressive actors, who know how to give you a … DAMNED GOOD SHOW … !!!
but be careful of, what it all bodes …… !!!!!
Signing off for now, as I ease back & chill, whilst listening to some cool sounds, from the hands of Nitin Sawhney, and funnily enough, one of the tracks that came on whilst I was constructing this post was called,
” Serpents ” ……
I’ll say no more ……
For Now ….
Stay Blessed folks.

Could not possibly let the week pass without paying tribute to Maurice White !
A TRULY …. Great Musician, and Artist … !!!!!!
This is just one of my, Favourite, Earth Wind & Fire tracks ……
Thanks for the memories !
… and …
Rest In Paradise, Mr. White !
Yes Yes people ….. !!!
Well, it’s time to get … SERIOUS … once again people !
This subject of … ” Double Standards ” …. could be a book, rather than a poem, but, ya know sometimes, it takes something to happen in life, to inspire such a work, as the one I now post …..
To give you some background to where this has come from …..
A White guy I know, yes that’s right, I said it ….
He is WHITE, was showing himself to be supportive of UKIP / EDL, type ideals, in reference to Englands’, rising Islamophobia, and general distrust of immigrants, unless of course, they’re Aussies, South Africans, or Kiwis, and I don’t mean Maoris or Aborigines either ….
This individual, who used to live behind my London home, upon seeing that I actually take these matters, which of course, encompass British Racism, VERY SERIOUSLY !
…. took it upon himself, after referring to some kind of friendship, we apparently had, which was a figment of his Very, CLEARLY, vivid imagination…………
….. to drop the kind of lines, that, define the hypocrisy, and …
” Double Standards ”
…. that are prevalent in, Far Too Many, White Brits, especially when it comes to their,
” Oh So PRECIOUS ” …. Cun’ …
Ooopps, typo ….. COUNTRY !!!!!!!
…… So, he then took it upon himself, to advise me that he wasn’t aware that I was Englands’ version of Martin Luther King, and that I seemed quite happy to be in England, whilst I could live there & get paid … !!!!!
Well, as I then, quickly, had to explain to him, I would of left long ago, had my mother not needed me, due to my father leaving her, upon finding out that she had Multiple Sclerosis, which, this white boy should of been aware of, due to the …. VERY CLEARLY MARKED … DISABLED PARKING BAY … in front of our home, that he used to walk past, to go for a drink in the pub next to my house !!!!!
He then chose to apologise for his … ” Oversight ” …
TOO LATE !!!
Thus, this poem is, not only, a response to his rather, fast mouth, that clearly opens, before his brain pathways, allow any thought waves to be received !
It’s also a message to everyone, firstly, the black actors, complaining about not getting their trinkets for being, paid liars, by their white, puppet masters ?!?
Now, I know people don’t like to think these things, but logically, what are actors exactly ?
Well, let’s look at slaves, for a sec, shall we ?
They would of been, and in certain cases, still are directed, as to when to do things, and, more importantly, when they could, or should speak right ?
So, exactly how does that differ to having a director, who could quite conceivably, be a black, house negro, dictating his masters wishes, (being Hollywood), to the lesser, black slaves right, (The Actors) ?
So, how does it differ, well today ….
It’s the … LEVEL of PAY, that they now receive, right ……..
Think about it ……
Now, i’m not saying people should stop acting, or, making TV Programmes or films, because I like a good performance, like the next person, however, people need to recognise what they are watching, a person presenting a facade, to make you buy into the act they present, to make you believe, they are something, they are NOT !!!!!
Sound familiar at all people ???
I think it probably does for most of you, from friends, to partners, to politicians, leaders and business associates, and ESPECIALLY ….. ENTERTAINERS, who spend much of their lives, in front of cameras, or, behind microphones !!!!!
So, be they white or black, as Danny DeVito recently said, they all work for a rather, ” Elite Club “, of racists, in a country that has founded itself, on acts of Terrorism, against people of colour, from the moment they, as ……
Wait for it …………….
IMMIGRANTS …. !!!!!!
…. went and STOLE land, to claim for their own, to then, import black slaves, to labour for them, to profit in ways, that, set up legacy of … well …
I’d say ….. ” Double Standards ” ……
Let’s not forget the Oregon situation, and how it’s being handled by the police, regarding, FEDERAL LAWS … !!!!!!
…. that are seemingly, being BROKEN … !!!!!!
…. by a set of well, for want of a better phrase, gun toting, trailer park, rednecks, as opposed to the way the police handled the citizens of Baltimore & Ferguson, whose vindication for their behaviour, was due to the loss of life, NOT LAND, or the rights to use …… Again ……
STOLEN LAND !!!!!!
Oh and one last thing, one of the … BIGGEST … !!!!!!
Double Standards ….
…. that seems to see, little sign of changing, is the attitude of black people, towards black people who have, ” The Minerals “, to speak out against the system, that they claim, is still oppressing them ….
…. and is responsible for their lot !!!
Well, i’m not foolish enough to think that, it has had, no effect !
However, if the mere sound of a black voice speaking the truth about it, FRIGHTENS their arse, to the point where they immediately, show you that,
” You should be careful what you say, because they will come for you ! ”
The double standard they live by, may well be the one that they then quote, as being the reason any black who has done so previously, ends up dead, invariably in, dubious circumstances …… ?!?!?
Well, if they have to stand, pretty much, alone, it’s no surprise that in 2016, we are still making, petty stands, to gain a yard, to be driven back three …..
The COWARDICE, Yeah I said it … !!!
COWARDICE …. !!!!!!
… and, inability to, TRULY UNIFY as … A MOVEMENT !!!!!!
…. makes it pretty easy for the powers that be, to continue to do, what they’ve now been doing for Centuries, to live and maintain the double standards that they, not only live by, but the double standards that the masses live by, that, in the case of black people, can leave us dead, or fighting each other, or worse still, fighting over fame and fortune, rather than, fighting for equality as well as social & spiritual development, that helps us to grow as a unified people, who stand together, to ensure that the legacy of slavery, does not allow our lives to be taken and then deemed by the law, to be done so, with impunity ….
and more importantly, to stop white guys like the one who inspired this, running their chops, as if we should’t run ours when they get found out to be continuing with the very same wicked actions, that defend their …….
“Double Standards” …….
Well, my mind and body are neither penned, or, dead yet, but if speaking the truth is the cause of either, occurring in my future, well, as I said to a black man here in Barbados who, upon hearing a track of mine, exhibited the same attitude I spoke about above,
TRUE CREATIVITY, does not cower into a corner due to FEAR, and if it does, it’s simply not REAL …
and like the title of the poem states, stands buy …. ” Double Standards ” …..
You have been WARNED !
This is for : Stephen Lawrence, Christopher Alder, Anthony Walker, Trayvon Martin, their families, and all the others who have suffered, or, lost their life due to police, racism, or the racists who take pride in using the colour of a persons skin, to justify taking life !!!
So, do yourself the favour of NOT Listening, if The Truth, FRIGHTENS You, or, offends you, to the point of some, ignorant reaction …..
which probably proves that you also live by ….
Double Standards !!!!!!
Okay …. Rant Over …. !!!!!!!
Now, only click play if your … HARD ENOUGH, as the Brits’ like to say okay ……. !!!!!
