“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 ” …

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,

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 ……. !!!!!

One.

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

Well, on the basis of much that is revealed in the documentary posted below ……

“Britains Forgotten Slave Owners” …..

It would seem fair to say, that there are and continue to be some…

EXTRAORDINARY … Double Standards, from a monetary perspective, ALONE ….

But, here are a few more, that are clearly, NOT, figments of black folks imagination, or, ” Chips on our Shoulders ” …..

“Yo, for my anger settle,
Man give me a treble !
Wait, i’ve got to mingle
So, give me a single
in fact, i’ll take a double
cos’ this may start trouble !”

All these … ” Double Standards ” …
are getting me angered …

From Lawrence to Walker …
to … Christopher Alder ,,,

it seems some … English People …
Can’t deal …. with … The Evil .. !!!
that … ” Lurks ‘ … in their house … !!!

when they get … ” Found Out ” … !!!!!!!

We blacks … should … ” Shut Mouths ” … ?!?
and … NOT … speak about …
The way we get treated …
in … ” Some ” … English Towns … !!!!!

or speak of our … ” LOSSES ” … !?!
because of … White Bosses …
who’ve got … EVERY RIGHT … !?!
to … Dismiss … our plight …
of fighting … for lives …

when police ….
SHINE THEIR LIGHTS … !!!!!

or keep us … “in the dark” … ?
About …. Monkey Chants …. !!!
while Black soldiers … DIE …

On … Police Station Floors … !!!

They’d rather …. ” Deny ” ….
how we’re … Treated like … WHORES … !!!
and … left on … ALL FOURS …
while THEY … have a laugh …
in stations and … Courts … !!!!!

The standards … ” They Have ” …
DON’T … Add up … like Math … !?!

They’d … ” Rather Not ” … Hear … !!!
about the …. ” Veneers ” …
Behind … “Cover Ups” …
that … EXPOSES STUFF …

About …
Just How … ” low ” …
” Their Standards ” … can go … !!!!!!

EXCUSES … Excuses …
and YES … MORE … EXCUSES … !!!?!!!

are what they … ” Provide ” …
to cover their … ” Looseness ” … !!!

“All people do wrong !”

is their NEW … ” Hot Song ” … !!!

All This … while … ” Trayvons’ ” …
are Lost … due to shots …
from … Zimmerman Bods’ … !!!!!!!!!!!!

“Of course we should Massa’ !
Let’s erase those chapters !”

See i’m down with … The Man …
….. ” Lilian Thuram ” ……

So …
Take the stance … THAT …

” Double Standards ” … Land …
in the laps of … Clans …
who stand next to … ” Racists ” …
in ………. Various Places ………. !!!!!!

But … WON’T …
Get on the … Faces …
of those who spread … HATRED … !!!!!!

I wonder … ” Sometimes ” … ?
whether they … ” Recognise ” …

Or ….
Take time to … THINK ….
About …… ANYTHING ……

Beyond ………………………………… Their Kin …. ?!!!?

It’s CLEAR Most ……… DON’T … !!!!!
and … Won’t … ” Rock The Boat ” …
when … “within” … ” Their Folk ” …

They hear … subtle jokes …
that … EXPOSE … Attitudes …
with … ” Racist Styled Views ” … !!!!!

How many … make … FEUDS ?
within … their own crews … ?

It seems there … Aren’t Many … !?!
who … TRULY … are … ” Ready ” …
to REALLY … say something …

They’d rather do … NOTHING … !!!!!

and be … YES … Complicit …
with those … Who Are … RACIST … !!!!!

but are … QUICK … to run lines
and wanna … Start Fights …
with blacks who … AREN’T SHY … !!!!!

to … Speak on … Their Crimes …
and … Bring them to … LIGHT … !!!!!

The question is …. WHY …. ???

Their standards seem … ” Doubled ” … !?!
when their feathers get … ” Ruffled ” … !!!!

It’s Clear … They get … ” TROUBLED ” … !!!
and just … WILL NOT BE … “humbled” …

I’ve said it before … !!!
I’ll say it again … !!!

It’s like Mos’ Def’ … said …

“When they do it well,
It’s seen as success !
When we do it well
It’s seen as suspect !”

But ….. ???
Who are … ” Suspect ” … ?!?
when their standards .. are … CHECKED … !?!

It’s time to … INSPECT …
and let ME … Cut The Deck … !!!

I ain’t from … Wu Tang … !!!
but … Know about … ” Klans ” …
and … IGNORANT Gangs … !!!
who STILL … ” Take The Stance ” …

That …

Immigrants cause ….
Their countrys’ … ” Downfall ” …

So Let’s … ” Double Check ” …
and get this … ” Correct ” …

When they … ” Move Around ” …
across …. Different Towns ….

On YES … Foreign Grounds …

Does their …. ” Migration ” …. ?
or ……………. IMMIGRATION …… !?!

Make for …. Better Nations …. ?????

when how they get … ” Stationed ” …
seems to bear ……. ” NO RELATION …… ?!?

to … Living in … SQUALOR … ?!?
and … Begging … for Dollars …
or … Begging for … ” Pounds ” … !?!

That’s … REALLY … NOT HOW …
They seem to ….. ” Get Down ” ….. !?!

Do They … FEAR POLICE … ?
when They .. walk the streets … ?
” Upon ” …. Foreign Shores …. ?

Or … Live like the … POOR … ?!?

Their standards … Stay … HIGH … !!!
wherever they ………. ” LIE ” ………..

Of course I meant … ” LAY ” … !!!

But in the …. U.K.
Immigrants … AREN’T OKAY … !!!
and should … YES ………………………………………………….. PLAY AWAY …….

UNLESS …. They will play …
in ways that …. Display ….

A wish to … “CONFORM” …

and NOT … Kick Up A Storm … !!!

when how they are treated …
is …. ” Racism Born ” …. !!!!!!!!!!

I … ” Double Up ” …
My Standards …

So that …
They stay … HIGH … !!!

and … WILL NOT … !!!
have … ” Handlers ” …
Decide …. How I ride …. !!!

and … DON’T KEEP ….
” Whoring Types ” …

Standing ……
By my … side … !!!

and DON’T … “hide behind lies” …
or ……. ” Ignorant Pride ” …….. !!!!!!!!

cos’ it’s now … CLEAR TO ME … !!!

” Some ” … FORGET … Their Manners …
and seem to be ….. ” Hampered ” …..

when it comes to them … SEEING …

How they … “HOLD” …

…… ” Double Standards ” ……

“Guilty As Charged” … A Poem written by Big Virge 4/12/2005

This was inspired a long time ago, by the murder of Anthony Walker, RIP.

…. but, how things change, and yet, somehow, “Remain The Same” … ???

Hopefully, ONE DAY, the people, living by ignorant attitudes & wickedness, WILL, one day, like the two boys who I refer to, at the start of this poem, be deemed …..

“GUILTY AS CHARGED !”

Axe Murderers … ???

“GUILTY” …
as … Charged … !!!!!

They’ll now … spend time
” Stuck ” …. behind bars …. !!!!!

But ….
Let me pull …
Some … ” Other ” … Cards
from ….. ” The Pack ” …..
Where … GUILT … is … Stacked … !!!!!

England …. as ….
A … ” RACIST ” … Place … ???

” GUILTY ” ……… ” YES ” …… !!!
Even ….. Today ….. !!!!!!!!!!

NOW It’s … ” WELL ” ……
“hidden” …… away ……

Can … ANY … of you … ?
” Now ” …. TRULY …. say …..

You Don’t Hold … FEAR …
of …. My …. Black Face …. !!!?!!!

Racists now …..
Have found … ” New Ways ” … !!!
and …. CLEARLY ….. Still …..
Have got …. ” NO SHAME ” …. !!!!!

But Some …
Black People … ?!?
are … just the same … ?!?
As …. ” Caucasians ” ….
and some …. ” Asians ” ….

If you have ….
A … Skin Tone … DARK … ?

You’re deemed … to be …
A … ” Lower Class ” … !!!!!!!

Asians … KNOW … !!!
How … “That One” … goes ….

So …
PLEASE … Don’t Even …
Try to …. Start …. !!!!!!!!!!!!

A … ” Marriage System ” …
based on …. ” CASTE ” …. ?!!!?

This proves … They Are …

” GUILTY ” …
as … Charged … !!!!!

Blacks who … ” Sell ”
Cocaine and … CRACK … !!!!!

Don’t … EVEN TRY … !!!!!
Some Do …. supply ….

” Drug Wars ” …
Now … PROVE … !!!

Doesn’t … Rhyme …
with … words like …

…. ” Charged ” …. !!!!

But …
Words from … That …
” Penultimate ” … verse …
Prove that … peoples’ …
Words are … ” Feeble ” … !!!

They place their … Pets … ?
HIGH UP … like … ” Steeples ”

But ….
Don’t give a … ” Damn ”
About … ” Poor People ” … !!!!!

So Many … ” Crimes ” … !!!
“Within” … Mankind …
Shown through … these …

So … choose to use …
Notepad … and … Will
to … ” Charge ” … My Pen … !!!
and … EXPOSE GUILT … !!!!!

Like telling … ” Truths ” …
About … ” OLD BILL ” … !!!!

Lies they … tell …

Well …now we’ve seen
Their … “Cover-Up” …. PLOTS …. !!!!!

From ……

” Bottom to Top ” ….

Judgement Passed …..

” GUILTY ” …

” Concrete Proof ” … !!?!?!?!!

by … “undercover” …
Met … ” Old Bill ” … !!!!!

SURELY YOU …
Would Hit … ” THE ROOF ” … ?!!!!?

Well … I Would Do … !!!

NOT …. ” Dud Cards ” … !!!
from … ” End to … Start ” …

When … LIES …
They’ve … ” Fed ” …

……. APART ……. !!!!!!!

I’d want to … HEAR …

” GUILTY

” MURDER ” …. is ….
What They … HAVE DONE … !!!!!!

KILLING … One …
“THEY CLAIMED” … “Had Run” … ????!????

We now …. face ….
A … ” POLICE STATE ” … !!!!!

Shouldn’t … ” They Face ” … ???
A … ” Magistrate ” … ?!!!? …

Who Should … ” IMPART ” …
words like …. THESE ….

“GUILTY” ….
AS …. CHARGED …. !!!!!!!

Let me … Move On …
to those who’ve … Run …
” This Scene ” … TOO LONG … !!!

By this …. I mean ….
