This month’s subject is … ” Hair ” … written & performed by Big Virge

All i’ll say is this …

It is Truly … INCREDIBLE, to believe & see that, in AFRICA … !!?!!

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-37219471

The matter, of black peoples’ HAIR, is even being mentioned in discussions of how we should present ourselves, in this,

” APPARENT ” ….. Post Apartheid, Mandela legacy, South Africa !

So ….
ONCE AGAIN, for 2016 ….

This stuff is …
BEYOND A … F’ing Joke ….. !!!!!!

However, it is no surprise, surprisingly … to me, with my well … ?!?

Hair …. !!?!!

…. and the all too frequent, disrespectful, name calling comments, that I can barely remember, let alone mention, regarding the aforementioned, Hair … smh …

Blacks, Whites & Asians alike, as this piece states, have no shame in running talk on how mine, and clearly, other black peoples’ hair, grows free ….

Untidy … to them … maybe … ???
Unclean … well ladies, … !!!

I’ll take that, pepsi challenge, that’s it’s cleaner than a lot of y’all …

Pussies … !!!!!

LOL … !!!!!!!

and y’all, UPP-ity … Black Girls … turning up your noses to my kind of wild styled hair, well, you best not be running that, straight FAKE Horse, or, Indian Hair, that ain’t yours alright !!!!!

Anyhow …

Here it is … ” Hair ” …

A lil’ sumthin’ I wrote whilst treading Philadelphia’s streets, whilst on holiday, a few years ago ….

Lest we forget …. “Open Season” … written by Big Virge 9/4/2015

Well ……..
It seems it’s … OPEN SEASON …

for … MURDEROUS … Policing … !?!

NO MORE …
will blacks take … Beatings … !!!

Police will leave us … Bleeding … !!!
while they … KEEP ON … receiving …
PROTECTION … for yes … leaving …

Blacks with …

NO PULSE or … FEELING … !!!
In Fact … NO LONGER … Breathing.

and then …..
comes … ” Court Proceedings ” …
that leave black people … ” SEETHING ” … !!!!!!

Well fine it’s … OPEN SEASON …
for poetry … now … Seeking …………………………………………………….

Some TRUTH …
and less … Deceiving … !!!

See ….
I’m Incredibly … not shocked …
at how … poor … ” Walter Scott ” …

got shot by …
some … white cop …

when Walter … tried to run …
from this … Policeman … SCUM … !!!!!

But ……
before I … move along …

He may well have done wrong … ?!?
but … ” Officer Slager ” …
Let Off … EIGHT SHOTS …
in … Walters’ BACK … !?!!!? …

Let me just …. ” back track ” …..

He shot … ” EIGHT TIMES ” …
Taking … ” HIS LIFE ” … !!!!! …

Because ………….
said … SLAGER …

” He feared for his safety
because Mr. Scott, tried to
grab his Taser ! ”

So …
That means … WHAT … ?!?

He … Deserved to be shot …
EIGHT TIMES … in his … BACK … !?!!!?!

Maaaaannnnn ….

ENOUGH … of this CRAP … !!!!!

What kind of Policing … ?!?
gives Policeman teachings …
of … SHOOT TO DEATH … !!!!

Rather than … ” A Leg ” …

Shoot … BOTH …
… if ya like … !!!!!

But …..
ENOUGH … of these vibes …
where Black People … DIE … !!!!!!

Husbands and Wives …
whose Fam’ … are told … LIES … !!!!!
about … Cop … HOMICIDES … !!!!!!

So let me …

Season and OPEN ………………………………….
how people are …. Bro Ken …
and Blacks are just … ” Tokens “…
for them to be … ” Quoting ” …
all kinds of … DUMB THINGS … !!!!!!

About …

… Po’ Po’ …
… Shootings ….

An … Asian dude …
who went to … my school
posted … one day …

on my …
Facebook Page …

“Blacks need to be wise
when police are in sight,
and not antagonise,
cos that’s how they’ll die !”

Yeah THIS … Indian Guy …
felt he had … The Right …
to tell me … ” Why ” …
Police TAKE … Black Lives … ?!!!?

cos’ we ….

” DON’T ACT RIGHT !!! ”

Well YEAH … sometimes ….
but being … SHOT TO DEATH …
goes BEYOND …. NONSENSE … !!!!!

but ……
Asians like … HIM …
Prove that being … “submissive” …
is how … Most Choose … to live …
and how … Most Seem … to think … !?!

How many … Asian girls …
and I … DON’T MEAN … Orientals … !!!

have been … ” Experimental ” … ???

when it comes to … Black Men …
being in their worlds …
as the … FATHERS OF …

….. Their Children ….. ?!?

It’s CLEAR ….
from their … ” Caste System ” …
that … Inter-Racial Teams …
are …. Rarely EVER … seen … !!!

Unless their partner’s …
….. ” White ” ….. ?!?

Most Asians ….
Don’t Trust … blacks …
and that is simply … FACT …

In Fact …
Some do believe …
that blacks are just … MONKEYS … ??!??

Check through their … “History ” …
Such words … AREN’T FALLACY … !!!!!!!!!!

When we now … ” Greet Police ” …

Should blacks … IMMEDIATELY … ?
get down upon our knees …

and BEG … like …

… ” Slavery Scenes ” …

“Please Massa’, don’t shoot me !”

which leads me to …
… These Blacks …

Whose uniform’s now …
…. ” Packed ” ….

to join these …
… Police Klans … !!!!!!!

What have they … ” Changed ” …
in … Policing ways … ?!!!? …

” Not A Lot ” … !!!!!! …

Ask … ” Walter Scott ” … ???

Well sadly now …

You … CAN’T DO THAT … !!!!!!

because what is … FOUL …
is … THIS HERE FACT … !!!!!

while Walter died
and lied … FACE FLAT …

A cop who was … BLACK … !!!
seemed to search Mr. Scott …
as if … He’d … STILL ATTACK … ?!!!?

and then …
let this … white cop ..
treat him … LIKE HIS DOG …. !???!

I’m …
SICK … of the … CRAP … !!!!!!
now coming from … Blacks … !!!!!!!

Will they wanna … Shoot ME … ?!?
for this … REAL POETRY … !?!

See it’s been …

….. OPEN SEASON …..
for … QUITE SOME TIME … !!!!! …

cos’ ….
Black folks be … ” submissive ” …
as if they’ll face … ” A Lynching ” … !!!

for .. BREATHING …
and NOT … ” Flinch-ing ” … !!!!!

when … Po Po lights …
Start …. Blinking …. !!!!!!!

which right now …
gets me thinking …

that … ” William Lynch ” …
is looking down and saying …

“Look at these Black Clowns !”

Folks ….
This here … AIN’T …

” 12 Years A Slave ” …

This shooing happened …
…. ” YESTERDAY ” …. !!!!!!!!

In ….
South Carolina ….
where that PIG …
has been … Fired … !!!

But ….
Without … ” The Footage ” …
would he still be out … SHOOTING … !!! ? !!!

See i’m …
a man of … ” Reason ” …

but right now …
I’M SEETHING … !!!!!

because ….
when it comes to ….

… KILLING BLACKS …

It’s …..

… STILL …
….. CLEARLY …..

…. ” Open Season ” ….

” Open Season ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge …

Hmmmm ….

Well, Olympics or not !!!!!

COME ON Usain …. !!!!!!

Certain subjects, Nah get dropped …. !!!!!

The cops and this whole …
Black Lives Matter Phenomena ….

Well,

Opinions are a plenty fa sure … !!!!!

So, of course, I have a few ………….

However, this piece was written soon after, the ….. (not so much mentioned) ….. Walter Scott EXECUTION, by some extraordinarily, ” Trigger Happy “, cop !?!?!

Anyhow, much surrounds these events, like different attitudes that come to light from people, of course, from races not directly affected by these horrendous killings of people, who, innocent or not, don’t get a chance to explain themselves to anybody but ….

Well …..

BULLETS, or the apparently, ” Humane Hands “, of law enforcement officers …. !! ? !!

Crazy ish’ people ….. ?!?

…. and of course, London now increasing it’s armed police presence, coincidentally, days before an incident in Russell Square, and a Black Lives Matter protest, that affected people trying o get to Heathrow, for a number of personal reasons on Friday morning ….

NOT …. !!!

…. the subtlest way to get your message heard, but, it has drawn media attention, so, England ISN’T, quite the bed of tolerance and unified thinking, as has been so readily reported, and argued …. since the arrival of people of different races, to basically, every arena in which the media presents itself, sports and EVEN, politics, so, things are fine right … ?!?

Weellllllll …..

Maybe not, if todays protest suggests there to be things, to be concerned about ???

The subsequent, television coverage, had an interview was with an activist, who was an articulate young lady, who was explaining that, although killings of the style in the US, are honestly, not so prevalent ….. in the UK …..

Smaller country, different laws ….. etcetera etcetera ….

Convictions in the instances of police inefficiency, which results in loss of black lives, are basically, non-existent, and have been, for a considerable time now ….

So, more armed police will result in what, exactly, less gun play … ???

I think NOT, but, time will tell ……

and one final thing here, with regard to policing globally, i’m talking the extreme cases of loss of life, but, let’s not pretend that general interactions with police are being run with the professionalism, and, public courtesies, that people should expect from those who apparently …. SERVE US …. ?!!!?

The ideal of how people are stereotyped by colour, also lends itself to a very subtle, but effective, form of white superiority and control ….

So …. do ….. ???

White Glass Ceilings exist still …. ???

…. in the hierarchies of these arenas where people of varying, darker skinned races, are now seemingly, “Fitting in”, quite nicely, and doing good things …….

Just questions … ???

However, there are divisions within those same, different shades, that aren’t always so readily brought to light, because of again, the veneer of … well ….

” Getting Along ” ……

Well, as a man who has grown with all types of races, nationalities & colours, which applies to the ladies too, there are certain mixtures that aren’t so common ….

Not ReeeeeEALLY’ …

…. but people just play it down, because sticking to ones’ own, is the way to go …..

Really … ???

… with so many varieties in the world to choose from …

Not everyman wants a … BIG BOOTY, or, fair-skinned, SAME SKINNED … !!! … ting’, to get his groove on with, as with the ladies now clearly.

So, don’t, for one second.

…. think that words you hear, indicate a man who does not see the positive effects of integration, from business, to personal interactions now, however, things in essence, remain at the core, the same …. and do need to be, i’d say, ” Re-Arranged “, just a bit ……

and one of the things at the top of my list, is the subject of the lyrics in this poem …..

So, as the Olympics get in full swing, with it’s opening ceremony today in Rio …..

There are a few things that are … Open …
right about now,

So, I warn you, NOW …

DO NOT ….

…. press play, unless you’re ready to deal with REAL subject matter …. that’s leaving lives SHATTERED …. !!!!!

While …..

#BlackLivesMatter …… ???

The poem speaks on these things, in what it expresses …. and more …..

STOP THE VIOLENCE ….
Once …. and …. FOR ALL.

…. And … Something Musical, from Inity Fyah … Prod. by Strat Carter

Well what can one say about recent issues of the badge and gun variety eh folks … !!?!!

Well, I really don’t know these days, apart from hypocrisy & over-reaction are INDEED …

ONE HELL OF A DRUG … !!!!
to take the words from Rick James ….

An ambiguous statement from me, about much that sticks very closely to ambiguity

but, to me, it is really quite CLEAR & SIMPLE …

The Po’ Po’ are dealing in a bunch of it, and black folks ….
YUP, you there running with it too, as well as,
receiving THE BRUNT OF IT … !!?!!

A lot of things get said, AFTER … DISTURBING Events … !!!!!!

Rather than ensuring, we, CONSTANTLY, work with things that prevent
unnecessary events & deaths ….

Okay, nuff said.

I gine’ let another man represent, pon’ such subjects, for a sec ….

This is a tune that’ll make you reflect
whilst making you move and nod ya head … !!!!!

Nuff Respek’ to the brothers ….

Inity Fyah & Strat Carter ….

But this fuh’ sure, I think y’all should check ….

Hmmm …. Some REAL TALK from Lord Jamar …..

Much that I have always said, that just makes, BASIC SENSE, and, rational logical thinkers would say the same, those who choose to refute the logic ….

Well …..

DENIAL … is a … BITCH !!!!!

I cannot and do not agree with EVERYTHING he says, but much deserves a moments’ thought …. So, listen to it all before you dismiss it, because you hear things that disturb your … ” Romanticised ” …

” Wonderland World ” …..

Wake the FUCK UP ….. !!!!!!

“Fight For What’s Right” … written by Big Virge 7/4/2005

Changes … of scenery, and much much more … written by Big Virge 22/5/2016

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 !!!!!

The Virge, out of here for now ………
