“Double Standards” … A Poem written by Big Virge 29/11/2013

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 ” …


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 ……


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,

Remember ….

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 ……. !!!!!

The Pre-New Zealand Experience … Written by Big Virge 14/01/2016

Well, before I hit Sydney, where I got my first taste of Australian vibes … !!!

I have to say that I did meet a very cool couple in Fiji, who were white folks, born in Australia, however, they were not from Sydney, where I popped in and out of …… on my way to New Zealand, THANKFULLY … !!!!!

I have so many good things to say about New Zealand, however, before I get to the beautiful things ….

I had to stop in Australia, just to break up my flights, and bwooyyyyy ….

Do I wish I didn’t !!!!

Although, everything for a reason, and I sense that reason, which will please lots of White Aussies, who read this …. is that ….

I really, have NO BUSINESS, being there !!!

Now, it’s not fair to generalise, but, from the Aussies I met, or, didn’t ….. in NZ, who just stared at me ….

…. and NOT …. In a cool way …. !!!!

…. to the ones, who I was in the vicinity of …. in Fiji, and, in the airports in Nadi & Sydney, their vibe is really, in my opinion, and now, my experience …. NOT NICE !!!!!

Apart from being, in the majority of cases, rather unpleasant to look at, and to listen to …. THAT BLOODY ACCENT …. !!!!!

If these people are not racist, i’d suggest, in far too many cases, as a matter of course …. Then, Aborigines ain’t from there, and let’s just remind the dummies that, the world now knows that, THE ABORIGINES …. are the REAL Australians, and, the true, indigenous people of that land !!!!!

Now, let me say, i’ve played cricket against, and with, numerous, White Australians, over the years, and have … NEVER … Experienced racism ….

NEVER … !!!!

Well, not directly at least ……

However, I am a big guy, and have a … Bigger Character, when in my element, but, not for, ONE SECOND, do I think that, THE CRIMINALS, that the Brits sent away & DIDN’T WANT …. !!!

…. and, more importantly, their offspring ….. do not have the same traits as their, not so distant, cousins !!!!!

If they don’t …

Well then … I’m a freaking Australian !!!!!!

The drinking, and how the, ” Truth Juice “, opens up their ignorance, reveals much about their, hidden ideals, and beliefs …..

Fijians stared, but more in that ….

“Whoaaaa … Who is this dude ?”, kind of way ….

Aussies stared in that …..

“Errrr what’s that !!!!!….. kind of way

….. and in that,

“Who does he think he is and what’s he doing here ?”… kind of way … !!!!

Well, hear what motha’ fuckers …. !!!

I’m moving in that ….

” You’ve got nothing on me ” … type of vibe !!!!!

And oh …..

” You don’t get to have rights, or access to things that I don’t ” …

Kind of way …. OKAY !!!!!

Between, reaching Fiji, and hitting Sydney, Queenstown NZ & Fiji again, over the course of 3 weeks, I saw, basically, NO OTHER BLACK PEOPLE folks …. Maybe ONE, but I think that my eyes may have been playing tricks on me …

LOL … !!!!!

…. but, as I tell people …..

I don’t travel the world to meet people, I travel the world to see the beauty of this planet, that some entity created …. who had a vision, for all shades, creeds and colours, to live equally, appreciate, and maybe just maybe, to get along with each other, without prejudice, judgement or, ignorance !!!!!

Oh and YES, that’s right, I am judging … !!!!!

If Trump can do it, and …..

If the …. ” Pro White ” ….

Anti-immigrant protestors in Sydney, can do it, those who needed to be separated from immigrants, on the ten year anniversary of the Cronulla riots, then hey, I should be able to have a say, that doesn’t go down so well with them !!!!!

Having seen the vibes of that unpleasant scenario, on the TV in my hotel room in Sydney, during my overnight stay, it’s only right !!!!!

I originally wrote this, while in Nadi airport, but, due to other matters taking precedence, I am only managing to post this now, in 2016, having now of course, seen the McLaughlin/Chris Gayle – ” Blushgate ” … of last week

So, as an ex cricketer of a pretty good standard, let me just state that, like many others, but not quite for the same reasons, I was truly astonished at his complete and utter disregard for the fact that …

1 – He’s in Australia, on National Television
2 – He’s in Australia, on National Television, chirping up some WHITE bit of skirt
3 – He tried his luck, to get some white puss, whilst being interviewed about cricket

and finally, and most importantly ….

4 You’re a Very Big, Black Dude, making what could be termed as, creepy advances to a WHITE GIRL, on National TV in AUSTRALIA … !?!?!

I know you think that, because you’re getting paid, shitloads of money, to join the 20 Over SLUGFEST, that the Big Bash League is, that you’r some kind of special, privileged individual now, but, maybe you should get your head out of whoevers’ ass you can get, and recognise how such actions would be taken !!!!!

It’s clear that, even he can’t stop the tide of white girls wanting some Big Black Dawgy’ … LOL

…. but, in all seriousness, in a time where race relations, on the surface, seem okay, but are clearly, far from that, he’s gonna act like some kind of …

Black Dawg on Heat … and then try to pass it off, as a joke ?!?

Well, it is indeed, beyond laughable, and clearly, not so funny, to certain, male, White Australians, who have pretty much, en masse, jumped on the …

“How Dare He” … bandwagon, as if, white sportsmen have never tried it on with female reporters, who, let’s get this clear, are rarely, frumpy looking women ?!?

…. and, as one comment I read, pointed out, this, from guys who work for an organisation, that, has taken the highly, respectable, if a little, snooty, world of cricket, into a fanfare of musically driven, fast food, microwave cricket, for the, internet generation of short attention span, viewers, and, even faster girls, in short skirts, cavorting on stages, claiming to be, team cheerleaders, who do, everything but, ask the patrons for a dollar, to take off, the rest of the, little they have on …..

Double standards anyone ….. !!?!!


OTHER …. black people, may have to travel through places like Australia man, nobody is saying you should’t be who you want to be, or try it on with the ladies, but a little finesse, and style, in how you work your charms, might not be a bad idea, before just doing .., WHAT YOU WANT, because there are repercussions, that may not just affect you man ….

Come On Man !!!!!

Anyway, Sydney has this vibe of …. Hustle & bustle & disrespect, which I got from some oriental cabbie, the moment I came out of the airport, after already having had my bag searched by some, Indian, wannabee Aussie, at customs.

Note : neither were white, but, in his case, had me up like some kind of …. Excuse my language …. CUNT !!!!!

The customs guy, upon hearing the route of my journey, was on some,

” Do you think it was wise to travel now ?!? “, type rhetoric, as if he and Trump, were the best of friends ?!?

Opened up my chit’, and as is their want, didn’t even attempt to put back the clothes he’d so willingly, thrown aside whilst looking for the bomb he’d imagined was in it !!!!!

Then, this lil’ …. Oriental ASS, was as rude a cab driver as I’ve ever had … !!!!!

Abrasive, to the point where the guy who arranged it, had to run some ….

” Can you just take the gentlemen !!! “, and basically …. Shut The Fuck Up, type talk !!!

I was too tired to get into it, but, was very close to just getting someone else !!!!!
Just incredible !!!!!

I actually was that tired, that, in the end, i’d even got my hotel confused !!!!!

So, the lil’ fucker got paid & I had to get another cab, but, in the end, not to surprisingly, it was my next driver, who was a Muslim, who affirmed much that I was feeling, and even related a story about a black businessman, who he’d once given a ride to, who explained that, due to the level of racism he’d experienced in Australia, he cried in the cab due to it, and vowed to NEVER return there, no matter the money !!!!!

No such reaction would I be giving !!!!!!

The hotels I stayed in, were, very average …. and the service was, Especially Poor, at the Mercure International, upon my return !!!!!

Basically, FORGET … staying at that place !!!!!

Once again …. The Mercure International, 5 mins from Sydney Airport, with no traffic that is !!!!

No internet access, and the excuses were that my room was in a poor reception area in the hotel, and then, that…. Oh a lot of people are online and as it’s free, people were probably downloading lots, so that’s why I couldn’t get further than seeing the hotel internet welcome page …..

Un F’ing Believable … !?!?!

As for Sydney airport, well, thankfully, my flight back was way before the mad rush that ensues, through that airport, that I had to go through when I was on my way to New Zealand, in the morning there !!!!!

INCREDIBLE queues, and a manic, security check area, as bad as anything i’ve experienced in America … !!!!!

However, it was something to behold, travelling through, both LA & Miami after the recent, Miami police shooting incident & San Bernardino, obviously, one that inspired more words from me !!!!!

It’s clear to me now, why so many Asian/Oriental Women, end up with white guys too now, apart from their being, rather petite, it’s because brothers ain’t hitting these regions, where oriental people seem to be, slowly but surely, invading, as in Australia & New Zealand, and, one of my cruises in New Zealand, exposed to me just how rude and ignorant some oriental people can be !!!!!

However, again, the oriental girls who were working in the tourism fields in New Zealand, were lovely, so, maybe it’s just those who travel and haven’t travelled much, outside of the orient !!!!

However, it’s no excuse, as some of the white folks who work on the tours, advised me in private conversation !

It was actually, one of the funnier moments, when a Chinese Guy, in my hotel in NZ, tried to use his phone, via translator, to order food from a Czech Waiter, whose English, wasn’t bad, but wasn’t fully up to scratch !!!!

Jokes galore at the bar … !!!!!

Until, another Chinese guest recognised the sitch’ and came and helped, as he spoke some English !!!!!

As positive a note as I can end this post on !!!!

However, what I will say is this …..

Australia is a big place and surely has cool people, like the couple I met in Fiji, but, for me, my Sydney experience, and the vibe of the immigrant Aussies I encountered, to varying degrees, on this trip, have set in stone, my wish to …. at all costs, avoid going back there …. !!!!!

However, better things & people …. filled my final destination, on my outbound travels, and shall fill my last post about my trip across timelines …… that took me to The Beautiful, South Island, of New Zealand ……..

More to come ……
