I guess that I should become accustomed to being around the white folks here in Bim, as the black people who I hoped would want to spend time around a man of my talents, seem happy to watch me from afar, make their secretive assessments of what I represent & then go play, “Chinese Whispers “, with each other !?!
I really hope that these Bajan people are not gonna be the types to criticize, run up dey mout’ & turn up their nose when they see that the rough lookin’ natty, is up in the wealthy white folks functions !!!
Yeah, like that’s ever gonna happen !!!
I am sensing a … VERY REAL … level of deviousness & hypocisy in Bajan people ….
Generalisation …. ???
Absolutely … !!! … but, Fuck it, that’s what I’m seeing !!!!!
So much love is spoke about by black people, well, let me stop that fukry right there !!!
Quick story which is true ….
Friday night …. wid my Ras buddy at the local Chinese, couple gal walked by wid alright bodies, so, man was clockin’ but, I ended up leaning on a car, … A next fit ting in her heel etc, approaches, and, rather than, just ask me to get off her car as she was about to leave …..
I got a verbal tongue-lashing as if the car was her f’ing mudda & I did leaning on her for sumthin’ !!!
…. by the time I repied, she was in the car and off … now Ras quickly explained to me that if she had seen the car I am drivin’, her reaction would, most likely have been very different, his view, pre-judgment & a fukry day caused her outburst ……
Worse thing was that, she was actually very sexy … but, bwoy what a f’ing mout & attitude !!!!!
…. Women wonder why the usage of, “Bitch”, has become so common in todays’ world …. !?! ….
When black folks be talking bout love, especially, “Black Love”, in dey mudda skunt, something tells me a different four letter word should be used … “LIES”
I am a critic of people, regardless of colour, I have spent time with people from most racial groups & feel, NO WAY … !!! … about expressing the ignorance & fukry they be going on with, so, if you like ….
I’m a UNIVERSAL RACIST !!!!!
I am no Marcus Garvey, or Malcom X, by any means, but, feel that their downfalls are no coincidence.
I’ll tell you for why, having had the below article sent to me by an Asian man, who, has previously come into my house to tell me that, “He didn’t come there to talk about racism !!!!! “, when I brought the subject up, about one of his own people going on wid it, in a public forum, albeit allegedly …. It becomes apparent that, anyone speaking out about racism, who isn’t part of the authorities, who are the main perpetrators, gets shot down REAL QUICK, for talkin’ it !!!
However, when those who know it, and feel it …..
Speak about it, where …..
…… they perhaps shouldn’t … !!! … in front of people who could, apportion suffering to the voiceless sufferers of racist practices, they tend to get pressure, not from the oppressors, (until their views get mass attention), but, from the sufferers … ?????
Anyway, here’s the article :
I’m not sure Sol Campbell is the best individual to be speaking on racist practices in English football, but hey, I guess he’s better than no-one doing it !!!!!
Thus, last night I went to a gig for a group of artists, some young, some older, some bursting with energy, others, less so, playing a set of covers of some very popular black music, for a predominantly white crowd. A crowd of what appeared to be, the wealthier collective of now, fully Bajan families, with a heritage in the island.
Yeah, when you hear that these people have a steeped history in the island, the bells of slavery start chiming in my ears, but hey, as i’ve said, it doesn’t seem as though Bajan blacks give a rasshole, so, it’s cool with me, as, to this point, I’ve yet to feel the lashings of a slavemasters’ belt, just those of my volatile father, when I stepped out of line, in my youth !!!
Hmmmmm ….. it never occurred to me, but, evidently, this form of beating, that many black children have suffered from their parents, has it’s slavery connections. ……
Anyway, moving on, upon my arrival, the customary, looks of shock, were then accompanied by a sense of discomfort for certain white folks, FOOLS … !!!
So few believing that I l could be residing, right in the belly of plantation wealth, ahhh … the classic Bajan thing of stereotyping & pre-judging, rather than doing the right thing, introducing themselves & then asking the question they, so clearly, desperately, want the answer to !!!!!
The crew who met me last week, were quick to spot me & greet me, which again, brought, quite a shock to some of the surrounding white folks !!!
It always makes me laugh how my appearance has this affect on people of both, black & white descent. My friends’ wife & I got into conversation whilst we listened to Hubby blow his horn, sax, to be precise, to great affect & appreciation from the circle of people, who were, apparently including, individuals from the Sandy Lane, no less, as well as prospective event organisers & music connected bods !!!!!
Wifey was quickly ensuring that I got introduced to as many of her white circle of friends as possible, not a problem, even though it could have come across as though I was her pet project !!!! Ha Ha …. !!!!!
No offence taken Mrs. R ….
I am taking her efforts as an attempt to make me feel comfortable, but, as I said to her last night, my silence & cool demeanour does not indicate an unsettled soul, if anything, it’s a better thing than to see me raring up & getting overly vocal !!!
I guess it’s always gonna amaze me to hear white folk speak with broad Bajan accents, even when they are so reminiscent to those, South Western English folk of Cornwall, it’s just freaky hearing it !!!!!
Anyway, the customary handshakes & looks of astonishment were apparent, when, ofcourse, my prim & proper English accent was heard, almost as if some of the white peeps didn’t know how to speak after hearing me …….. Again, how strange, but, it’s a very good strange, because it’s almost as if they hear something that just, shouldn’t be, a black man who speaks the mother tongue, as well as, if not, better than them !!!!!
Ooooooohhh …. SCARY …. !!!!!
“Can’t just talk down to this one, gotta be careful what we say !!!!!
However, there’s always one who feels that they should try to get down wid da black dude !!!!!
Trying to talk that black ish ….. that makes her feel comfortable to be around me, as if that’s the only way she knows how to connect ???
So, just as I’m saying to you Bajans, don’t come with that hustlin’ or manipulative vibe, just be yourself and speak to me as if I’m a human being, same rules apply, you might be surprised what that actually does for a relationship !!!
Barking ignorant rhetoric isn’t something that works for all of us, some of us have a lil’ more to offer than that …..
As I sit here writing this stuff, i’m laughing away to myself, because it’s all so ridiculous !!!!!
Black folks who claim to be all about … “Black Love” … being ultimately, very guarded around a brotha brought up by big brotha … thus, one who may come across to be more white than black, yet, one who makes open attacks on the same people who I spent my Sat evening around ???
Indeed, the same brotha, who, certain white folks are clutching their bags around, which happened, in a very subtle way last night, but hey, being as I’m bigger than that, they can quickly get overfamiliar with, not realizing that my mindstate is in a place of observational analysis, assessing their every movement, reaction & vibration.
Now, this is something that I know the brothers here, have happily jumped on, those hot white chickeroos who be with their paranoid white boyfriend, who has no rhythm, or SAY …. in their relationship, apart from when he opens his wallet, who be yearning for some big black cocky to fulfill their fantasies !!!!
So, she’s there getting her drink on wid, said, manbitch, who has sensed that the presence of a certain black
dude, has her moving a lil’ differently !!!
So, she …. being the devious ho that she is, decides to play the whole, let me keep turning round to see if I can catch, ‘Brothas’ eye”.
Yeah, I had that too last night, all fun & jokes to me really, but, it does show me how much black people have been indoctrinated into the behavioural fukry that our slavemasters showed us, for centuries.
My Rasta bredrin & I spoke about this on Friday, where he stated that the block vibe of gettin’ pussy, emanates from the ways black women were treated for sex, by their slave masters’ historically.
Upon thinking about what he said, I could see the relationship, that whole …..
“Ehhhhh …. Youuuuu …. Come here & tek dis vibe !!!”, which, allied to the usual physical abuse that accompanies, full relationship status, within many black relationships, is actually, what turns many black women on !!?!!
I always think of the scene from, “Diary of a Tired Black Man”, where, after an argument which exploded publicly, the whole scenario at home, became one of physical imposition by the man, which, in many eyes, could be seen, as bordering rape !!!
I have posted the latest Public Enemy video today, for a couple of reasons, I like the track, one, but, also, because in speaking about the song, Chuck D spoke of the Hustlin’ mentality that exists within many young rappers etc ……
Well, right about now, the amount of black males who use the word, “hustle”, to define their lives ….. annnnnddddd …..
…… The ladies who are goin’ on wid dis vibe of using their punny as their hustlin’ tool, is pretty scary, to be honest, but, VERY REAL !!!!
Well, Chuck refers to this hustle as, and I quote, “The language of a scavenger”.
Now, I need not explain what kind of creations are scavengers, having Bopped a couple of them today,
Cockroaches people …. Yeah !!!!!!!
Vultures & Mother Fuckin’ parasites …..
Is that who you are Bajans huh …. !!!?!!!
Are you … !!!?!!!
Well, wunnah better check yo’selves & your behavior !!!!!
Today has been a wet one, lots of rain, which, suddenly seemed to result in a loss of power, in the early afternoon …..
Well, as the government seems to have time & money to finance poorly executed police drills, to be seen where people are tryin to chill ….
Maybe they can find some funds to ensure that, when man wants to use the things, that, in many cases, get’s him paid, it works when the weekend comes !!!
Some of us just wanted to use their cooker, that we pay so much money to use in utility bills, to feed ourselves !!!!!
Bottom line is ….
Too many of our practices are corrupted & being watered down to make us feel as though behavior of this kind should not only be accepted, but, RESPECTED !!!!!
SERIOUSLY PEOPLE ….. !!!???!!!
WAKE THE FUCK UP & STOP LYING TO YOURSELVES !!!!!
…….. because …… as everyone dun know ….
When they catch up wid u …..
Cuh Dear ….. !!!!!!!
L8r ….. Mo’ Funksta’s
