” Keep It Real !!! ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Okay folks so, it’s that time for me to drop some more, rhyme driven insights, on the world, and how we humans deal with living in it …..

So this month’s spoken word offering deals with a NOT SO Popular, or frequently used saying from back in the day …..

Hip Hop Inspired, in many ways, ” KEEPING IT REAL ” ….. has been used in so many ways now, that it goes WAY Beyond, those three words …..

These days, it’s pretty clear why the saying doesn’t hold as much what ???

I guess …. ” Swag ” …. in the world we live in today.

(Excuse my mis-appropriation of the term young’ guns !!!)

Simply, because the majority of people clearly, DO NOT, keep things real, from their talk, to their actions …….

A worrying trend when you look at the fact that we are a long way down the line of human history, so, I for one, would like to think that people would recognise the value of ACTUALLY, ” Keeping It REAL “, from beginning to end……

However, there are some issues with doing so now aren’t there … ???

The threat of some kind of public law being broken, to the point where imprisonment, at the least, could come your way !!!

Like say, Irish Landlord, Fergus Wilson, check his story out.

He’s been, Keeping It WRONG, on SO MANY LEVELS … !!!!!!

A Very Wealthy, and Prominent landlord in the United Kingdom !!!

He’s kept it VERY REAL, when telling one of his letting agents to stop, ” Coloured People “, from renting his homes, which he seems to think is okay, but that’s a whole different deal !
He has denied being racist, of course, and chose to defend himself in court, where he was advised to ditch such a policy, as it is discriminatory !!!!!

Now, I was told a long time ago, better the devil, or, racist you know, than the one that you don’t !!!

Mr Wilson’s assertion, that his comment about curries stinking out his properties, is “Political Correctness gone mad”, may not actually be, that far off the mark, but hey, that’s the way these days, you gotta be careful what you say right ?!?

Unless of course, you happen to be a President, or, any other description of a world leader ???

Hmmm … and how real are they eh ???

A question for another day, but, another one is, when one of these, ” Leaders “, starts to REALLY, ” Keep It Real “, in their talk, what do the masses choose to do ?

CRUCIFY them, for exposing who they really are …

(Unless You’re Bill Clinton of course ?!?)

….. Or, as seems to be the case now, be accused, from the ladies perspective mainly, of abusing them for, being well, REAL, even if it is in some VERY SLEAZY, and Disrespectful ways …. !!!!!

Depending on where your moral compass lands though right ???

So, quickly, let me just drop a view views on these harassment cases, from HollyWOOD, cos’ NUFF WOOD, LOL …. Seems to be being, thrown about that world, as it does, Britain’s corridors of power !!!!!

Surprised, well, I have to say that it’s about time we heard some folks, ” Keep It REAL, when it comes to what goes on, in Political Offices like Whitehall, and elsewhere.

It’s clear that homosexuality isn’t alien to Politics, but the disturbing nature of quite a few MP’s, arrangements to get sex, and now, their treatment of women, does indeed, leave much to be desired.

However, back to Hollywood, as much as I will at some point be thrown under the bus for expressing this view …. but, it’s my truth, in terms of how I see these accusations.

Okay so, yeah, I have to believe that certain accusations have been dismissed firstly, by the police in certain cases, because there are instances that have come to light, that have indicated that they have done this with paedophile claims and others, over the years, however, there has to be some assessment of where these claims are coming from …..

Actors and ACTRESSES …..

AKA as …. Pretenders, or one could go as far as to say …..

PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED, Highly Paid Liars …. !!!!!

YEAH, I Said It …. LIARS ….. !!!!!!

Now, let me MAKE CLEAR, I am NOT suggesting, that every claim that has been made, is some kind of lie, however, what I am saying, is that in an industry based on ….

ElevATING the level of ATTENTION, an individual receives, I Repeat, ATTENTION, that people receive, and clearly, YEARN FOR, for their ability to again, ” PRETEND “, to be something, or, SOMEONE Else……

Well, one has to at least, question, the volume that have … ALL OF A SUDDEN, started to spring up, from here, there and everywhere, Cosby, Weinstein, Louis CK, Kevin Spacey, and a number of Politicians, to start with … ???

Have you noticed a theme with these people though ……

Well, let me point you in a few directions ….. with a few questions … ???

Poverty …. Ummmmm’ NAH …..
NONE of the ACCUSED are, some Tramp of Road !!!
A Reputation for Honesty & Integrity … Errmmm’, Note I Said POLITICIANS as well so Uh Uh.

Wealth ….. Ummmmm’ ….. Well HELL YEAH ….. !!!!!!!
Power …… Ummmmm’ ….. NO BRAINER ….. Well HELL YEAH ….. !!!!!!!

Influence ….. Well, in terms of career, all the above could certainly be said to have at least got connections to the fast lane to fame, or, a route to power … !!!!!

And THAT WORD ….

” FAME “, is a very, SIGNIFICANT one in these scenarios !!!!!

and finally, the time lapse between these TERRIBLE Things, Including RAPE, being declared, as what occurred !!!!!!

Now, as said, the victims will, in many cases state that, as previously suggested, they were NOT, taken seriously !

As said, it’s ridiculous, in my view, to think that this didn’t happen to a good set of victims, however, if my … PERSONAL SPACE, was imposed upon like that, there is NO F’ing WAY … I REPEAT …..

NO F’ING WAY….. !!!!!!

I’m gonna let that lie for 20 years, and then because of some new wave of impersonal messaging, sent via modern tech, use THAT, as a platform to wage some kind of … ” Bandwagon War “, against something, that, as claimed, was such a TERRIBLE Thing, that it DESTROYED MY LIFE, as some have suggested it has done …..

Even though ???

….. in the case of these Hollywood Victims, they not only, ” Kept MUM “, as in, “quiet”, but then, CONTINUED to work in this industry, where, as now seems to be the case, this type of behaviour is prevalent, due to the predatory nature of it’s members.

Hollywood is a very, ” Special Club “, and i’m pretty sure that women KNOW THAT, who join it, child stars get a pass, however, Mummy and Daddy of said stars, not so much !

Don’t play dumb, when you read the stories, hear the rumours, and see certain things going on …. KEEP IT REAL eh ….. ?!?

ESPECIALLY with, your children … !!!!!!

However, a quick word for those accused, as a man who, in a working environment, has been accused of sexual harassment once, here is why I hold the views I do, and can say what I have previously.

A Young Female, let’s say, tried this, ” Harassment Claim “, because she WASN’T, getting the attention she CLEARLY WANTED, from me, but when she did, it became an issue when I explained that, in her case, walking about, exposing your thong in an office, encourages such thinking in Red-Blooded, young males, who unlike Weinstein and them, are tall and muscular.

So, off she trots to her boss to give the big sob story ???

Now, him being, one of those males who adheres more to being feminine, than being manly, without question, decides to run to TOP MANAGEMENT, one of whom I had been told, was a bit of a racist, to expose my e-mails to this well, female … who, if I had flipped the script, could of accused of Harassment, due to various, more subtle ways of doing so ?!?

However, of course, My Job and Career, if such a thing was affirmed, could have been irreparably damaged, but, concede to the threat ???

Uh Uh …
NOT … THIS MAN …

I told my boss, do whatever, my position is the same as the e-mails state, fire me if they see it her way !!!

Now, one has to remember the pressure that such a claim puts on a brain, but hey, I continued to work for a while with this hanging, only to be told a week or so later, that, having read my mails, the BIG Bosses, apparently told my boss that,

“Virgil is right and to be honest, we’re glad he told her straight, so, tell him we’re dismissing her claim, and he has nothing to worry about !”

Now I get that there were a lot of males in this scenario, but hey, the first one who heard the claim, didn’t blink, before pushing it higher up the office management chain, without question !!!

So, back to the Hollywood lot, a good few of these women are older now, ad may even be seeking some attention to regain some spotlight, it’s not beyond reason to think that this could apply to some of these claimants, and, as for the guys, well, guys are probably equally, if not, more likely to keep quiet for fear of what that will say about them, let alone, the idea that another male abused them sexually, so there is more to the idea that …… Anyone …. !!!!!

…… be they, the female in my scenario, who may I note, in the same office, a year or so later, ended up working on my floor, and quickly made peace with me, as soon as I approached and suggested that we, ” Play Nice ! “.

In her case, just a bit of attention sorted her in the end.

However, there is proof that people, and, in this case, yes I mean predominantly women, can say or do things to cover their own, poor movements & choices, because it’s not been unusual to hear certain victims state that they didn’t say anything, due to the FEAR of what it might do to their career … ?!?

… which again. leads anyone with some common sense, to see that the level of … ” Apparent Abuse “, was and has been known about, and evidently, seen as acceptable within the Hollywood Ringer ….

up to now at least …..

and thus, this month’s piece, explains how I see the fraudulent manner in which, such an APPARENTLY, RIGHTEOUS expression, has been ABUSED, by more than actors and actresses, and their fraternity of FAKERS, but by, ” Road Man “, ” Gyal “, and basically, pretty much everyone who dared to run the phrase, as if they ever lived their life in it’s entirety by …

” Keeping It real ” ….

I Think NOT.

…. and the way that Evidence & Accusations keep surfacing currently, it’s pretty clear that the expression has drifted into the backwaters……

…… because ………

” Keeping It Real ” …. is being … SLAUGHTERED … !!!!!

So, take a listen,
if you think you’re righteous enough …. ?!?

” Open Season ” … Prod by Strat Carter

Well, it seemingly, isn’t currently a subject, that’s hitting the headlines, but it’s a subject that never really leaves the minds of black people ….

and, following on from my previous post, it seems that as this piece relates, we still have to be very mindful of our place, when dealing with the ….

Good ol’ ….

Boys In Blue ……

Well, these words deserve a place, way up in these ignorant feds’, who still seem to think that when they see us, we’re a target for them to aim at, as if it’s ….

Well ……

Open Season ……

” Know Your Place ” (Explicit) … written & performed by Big Virge

Okay folks, so another month and another load of very strange stuff going on !

The whole NFL kneeling situation has got very testy, with the President becoming quite colourful in his use of language, regarding the Kaepernick followers, who, in all honesty, do seem to have jumped on board his ship, a little late, in my opinion.

The increased rhetoric from a President who could clearly care less about, what opinions people have, from the press, to his own staff, and of course, people of colour, has, all of a sudden, even got players, outside of the NFL kneeling as well now, as if that’s gonna change the attitudes of patriots and racists alike …. I think not.

Hertha Berlin players took a knee today, in an apparent stand of ….. ???

Oops ….. ???

KNEE of solidarity with the NFL players, who are wanting a change of mentality, towards what exactly ?

Flag waving patriotism, National Anthems, Police Brutality, or the basic, racism that appears to be, a standard, for how people of colour are treated, generally by, fairer complexioned folk.

Now this, “People of Colour” Phrase, is one I cannot relate to, as firstly, as the old joke goes, nobody shows more colours than white folks when they show us shades of blue red, brown and ever other colour under the sun !!!!!

However, NOT all people of colour feel liks’, quite like BLACK People, but yet, Chloe Bennett, sorry, Wang, from Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, is now suggesting that the level of racism in Hollywood & the UNITED States, affected her ability to use her actual name !!!!!

All of these scenarios link themselves to the idea of yup, you guessed it ….

Knowing Ya RASSHOLE Place people !!!!!!

I mean, the NFL thing has got a bit silly now, and the players do have rather large amounts of money to enter, political arenas, if they want to don’t they ???

…. instead of facing head injuries, etcetera, that could leave them worse off than a police beating !!!!!

Well, maybe not, but …..

Black folks getting their noses out of joint, need to check themselves, and recognise their role in affecting change, in a world which is essentially, governed, by the spoils from systems that, support the sentiments of anthems, like those of the US and the UK ….. a la …

Rule Britannia ….

English folks will apparently, never ever be slaves eh ?

Yeah right !!!!

Similarly, the girls are on the charge again, Bill Cosby having, kinda sneaked off the radar because, OH NO, A Big WHITE, Hollywood producer has been harassing, multiple actresses, over an extensive period of time …. basically being, his time as an Exec … !!!!!!

Shock Horror …. SURELY NOT ….. !!!!!!

Okay so, here we go, us terrible men, and oh wait, no-one believes women when they claim sexual abuse, which is one of the reasons he has got away with his, ” Alleged “, deviant behaviour around women………

Okay so, that means we should believe them now ???

Calm yourselves folks, it’s just a question ?

Harsh as it may seem, how does a little man like Weinstein, get away with causing so much pain to these women, who, so many have looked up to, for what exactly ?

Well, before I get the feminists on my ass, you ladies need to think it through, and decide whether, so much sympathy should be being handed out to women who clearly, seemed to know their place before……

Keeping their mouths shut, for jobs and money, when maybe they should of been opening them as much as other parts of their body have been ….. to protect the sisterhood, that they claim outweighs any amount of pay ……. or job security …… ???

One to think on ….

Theresa May allegedly wants ignorance and intolerant individuals to, ” Know Their Place “, in Britain…….

Huh Hmm, the less said about that, the better ….. and of course, I have to mention the Girl Guides apparently becoming, Boy Scouts ???

…. which has clearly stirred some, considerable consternation ….

Now, other than Bruce ??? Caitlin ???

I dunno …… that Jenner Fella, being named woman of the year, last year, in certain peoples eyes …. this has to be one of the most absurd things of the last few months …. ?!?!?

The world has indeed gone, ” PC Crazy “, as well as completely irrational, on so many levels now !?!

Let the girls be girls, and the boys be boys eh ….

and on that note….

Come on people, like this piece says ….

” Know Your Place ” … !!!!!

” Hardcore ” … Prod by Strat Carter (Explicit)

Okay so, back to some music from Virges’ World ….

and somehow, when applying these words to the world at large, as it’s currently running ….

Well, Mr. Trump is …. AS EVER, going on in a Hardcore Manner, in terms of his language, and attacks, on everyone from Steph Curry, to Colin Kaepernick, and those who’ve suddenly realised that maybe just maybe, Colin has a point !

It’s easy to jump on the bandwagon when a man of The Presidents’ ilk, runs some Extraordinarily, INFLAMMATORY Language, and attitudes in the public domain, as North Korea’s leadership would certainly attest to.

As for the weather, well if you haven’t been paying attention, HARDCORE Damage has been wreaked by Hurricane after Hurricane, and yes, the region of the Caribbean is still in the midst of them, so, don’t think that it’s all good as we leave what is deemed as being, the Hurricane Season.

A little more humility and thought, rather than, hardcore reactions …..
might just be the order of the day, for a while, but in the meantime, My Hardcore vibes, with the handy work on production of Mr. Strat Carter, are a little less disturbing, if, none the less worthy of the title …..

Take a listen …….

Texas getting beaten up by Hurricane Harvey !

Here in Barbados, it was a light hit that Irma gave, however, one surfer dead, a roof or two, severely disturbed, and I had a report of 7 foot of landfall at one point !

However, St Martin, Barbuda, Cuba and the list continues, of places either devastated, or severely damaged, Jose soon followed, if less forcefully, and now mainland America is taking liks’ AGAIN, from Irma !

Floridians trying to preserve their homes and lives, with all kinds of crazy talk, about staying in the face of one of the most powerful Hurricanes in HISTORY !!!!!

Good luck to em’ … !!!!!

Then we have Mexico going through a massive earthquake, and aftershocks, that closed down schools and much more throughout the country, Landslides in Africa, flooding in Italy & Asia …..

and, OF COURSE …. back to the disturbingly frequent

Alarm bells being rung, due to North Korean Nuclear Testing …..
which kind of makes Mr. Putin seem, quite tame, in comparison !!!

Well maybe, NOT … Tame … !!!!!!

Alarm bells are ringing, or maybe that’s Tolls, as this poem suggests ……
ALL OVER the place …. For REAL right now !!!!!!

It’s pretty clear that Mr. Trumps……

” Hire and Fire ” … Whitehouse …
rings bells quicker than huskies, pulling sleds !!!

Hence,

This poem DOES NOT ….

Definitively deal with the power of natures wrath, in delivering Final Bells for people, but, covers aspects that reflect on the idea of why & what you are due to face in these interesting, and somewhat disturbing days ahead ……

So far so good for me, however, having lost a good buddy recently,

RIP Ian ……..

…. it is clear that mortality for many is a SERIOUS thing, right now …..

I of course, send out condolences to anyone who has lost loved ones as a result of natural happenings of recent, but, also suggest to those who are currently suffering, due to human failings, and those who, more importantly, think they are beyond being touched by something that could just stop them in their tracks …..

THAT …..

You take note of these words, and once again, MORE IMPORTANTLY, The Warning Signs, that nature, and, CERTAIN HUMANS ……

KEEP GIVING …. !!!!!

….. that suggest that, maybe, people need to humble themselves right now, on all kinds of fronts !!!!

Not just in the face of those, that are a result of Mother Nature’s beautiful, powerful & at times, destructive weather !!!!!

Take care out there, wherever you are people, and remember that, eventually, they toll for us all ……

Right about now, he’s a busy fella, trying to stop all dee furry’ going on all over this world of ours right now …. !!!!!

But ….

He at least has some hard beats to move with ….. !!!!!

Well,with all that’s going down in Virginia, and other places currently, this would seem to fit the bill for a lot of idiotic people sadly ……

Get out of it, because………

Ya know ….
” Syndromes ” … roam …………….

Through phones and homes
Like … ” Twilight Zones ” …

Instead … most choose …
Syndromes … that … ” Prove ” …

How Many … play tunes …

by …. ” Colonial Grounds ” …. !!!!!

“Those” … that see …
White Views … as … CLEAN … !!!
and having …. ” Sheens ” ….
of … ” Positive “… Dreams ….

While … Darker voices …
are NOT … Anointed … !!!
in …. ” CEREMONIES ” …. !!!!!

because they are seen ….
as being … “Unclean” … !!! …
” NEGATIVE ” … and … Mean … ?!?

The Type that … NEED … !!!

NOT Dark … but … LIGHT …

In Fact you … find …

To Gain Fame … and … Express …

These days … I See …

and …. ” UNITY ” ….
are the best things for ….
…. ” HUMANITY ” …. !!!!!

from … ” impoverished ” … peeps …
Who … They’d rather … “Keep” …

and just cause … ” Problems ” …

” Third World ” … Heads …
who … NEED TO … ” Affect ” …

A Change of … ” ATTITUDE ” … !!!!!

INDEED … Some Do … !!!!!

But … Historical Moves …
Some Whites … have used …

to … IMPRINT … in brains …

That …
” They are ” … SUPERIOR … !!!!!

That prove … HOW DEEP …
… ” Colonial Themes ” …
run through … the minds …
of … ” Too Many Peeps ” … !!!

It seems as though …

from … ” Certain Brains ” … !!!!!

But …..

I Don’t … Carry CHIPS … !!!

Nope …
My shoulders are … FINE … !!!!!

Too many … I FEAR … !!!!!

to believe … ” The Veneer ” …

That … Powerful Racists …
are … NOT IN … ” High Places ” … ?!?

because of …. OBAMA …. ?!!!?

They … NEED TO LOOK …
…. HARDER …. !!!!!!!!

and STOP … Running Talk …
That Betrays … “Racist Thoughts” … !!!!!
when blacks … Don’t Retract …
but speak … ” Quoting Facts ” … !!!!!!

About the … ” Syndromes ” …
where …Racism Roams … !!! …

because of the … ” Past “…
that leaves their cards …

…. MARKED …. !!!!!!

From Europe to … Asia …

” Racists ” …
STILL HOLD … Favour … !!!
because of the … ” Paper ” …
” They use ” …. to buy ….
….. TRAITORS ….. !!!!!!!!

‘” Traitors ” ….

Who …. ” Sold Out ” ….
Black People … !!! …
Don’t Doubt … !!!!!!! …

Africa … has them …
These things … I Accept … !!!!!

while … Many Blacks … DON’T … !?!
So … have the … ” Syndrome ” …

Just like … These … ” White Folks ”
who make … ” Stupid Quotes ” … !!!!!
when they … CLEARLY KNOW …
That … Racism Roams …
inside of … ” Their Homes ” ……………………
and …”In Those” … who …

…… DENY …… ?!?

What Lies in … ” Their Files ” … !!!

The Legacy of …
Their Past … History …

which … Still Runs … ToODAY … !!!!!
in … TOO MANY … Brains … !!!!!!!

Racists … have got … CLEVER … !!!
and … Operate … BETTER … !!! …
because their … ” Defence ” …
is Now like … ” Mayweathers’ ” …

” WE’RE IN IT TOGETHER !!!!! ” …

So …..
If that’s the case … ???

Where is this … ” Third World ” … ?!?
They Claim’s … a … ” DISGRACE ” … !!!!!
But … buy places to … STAY … ?!?!?

I’m a … ” Little Concerned ” … !!!
at … some quotes …
White Folks make …

Who then get … IRATE …
when they … hear a … Black Man …
who now … OVERSPENDS … !!!!!!

and … ” Reminds Them ” … of Blots …
They hold … from the … ” past ” …
that STILL … ” HAVEN’T STOPPED ” … !!!
in the …. ” Whitest of Hearts ” … !!!!!

They’re quick to … ” Now Say ” …
that … ” They Face Racist Ways !!!!! ” …

If they do … ?!?

Where … TODAY … ???
are … white people … BEATEN …
and … HUNG UP like … ” Slaves ” … ?!?!?

I guess it’s … ” Such Quotes ” …
that are … ” Too Close To Home ” …
for the types of … white folks …
who are … NOT Alone … !!! …

When it comes to … ” The People ” …
whose thoughts are … “Controlled” …

and caught in …
what is known …
as this …

A …

…… ” Syndrome ” …….

“Point The Finger” … Written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People !!!

Yes Yes People !!!

So, what’s going on in your world right now ?

Well, having just watched a very interesting movie about Botswanas’ not so distant history, of race driven shenanigans, that included, quite a bit of finger pointing by the British & South African Governments, ” A United Kingdom “, is a film that serves as a great reminder of the danger of pointing fingers, without justification, especially when yours are clearly, NOT SO CLEAN …. !!!!!!!

Fast forward to today, and there’s so much to think on these days, that connect to …..

” Fingers Being Pointed ” …..

…. that has led to much that we see in the world today.

Especially the modern political landscape of today, as pressures increase, safety concerns continue to disturb, from Migrants apparently, causing problems to Italy’s Southern Coastlines, to Brexit’ talks continuing to apparently, falter ….

…. and talking of faltering ….

NOT, that it was a failure, but sadly, it doesn’t look as though we’ll get to see Mr. Usain Bolt, pointing his arms and fingers to the air in celebration of a major championship 100 metre victory again ….

Ah well, such is life, but I have to quickly give props to this legendary athlete, for all his achievements on the track, and hopefully now, what he should translate into an, off the track legacy, that will not only help Jamaica, in multiple ways, but also, young athletes all over the world, to be inspired to achieve, something even comparable to the, ” Lightning Mans’ “, achievements.

Well done Usain, great career man !!!

However, back to this idea of pointing fingers, well, The Trumpster’ is hiring and firing as quickly as he can point his fingers clearly, Korea are pointing fingers at the US, as are Russia now, and Venezuela and Brazil, seem to have a lot of pointing going on, of much more than fingers sadly ….

and Of Course, one cannot forget the Grenfell Tower Blaze survivors, who are also pointing fingers at the UK Government and wanting, not only answers, but a place to lay their heads, after what now seems to be accepted as Corporate Manslaughter, so, I wonder whether judges will have the balls to point some MP’s to Jail, with no chance of getting Bail, or, a …

” Get Out of jail Free ” … card … !?!

Unlikely …… !!!

… as it seems to be unlikely that Barbadians will do anything more than, walk and talk about, how tight things now are in this island paradise, because of Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, pointing to who knows what, to ensure his legacy of governance is not forgotten, for quite some time …..

So, for this month, as there does seem to be a lot of this going on, right about now ……

Some verse worth pondering before you join the brigades doing it ……

I suggest you check YOURSELF, before thinking you can do it …..
