“April Who ? ” … written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People !!!

Well, i’m back to sharing some thoughts on this crazy world of ours…..

…. from more political wrangles to, Nuclear tests, Brexit of course, the French Election, and North Korean moves to, President Trumps’, first 100 or so days in office, there has been much that could be deemed as foolish, of recent …….

So, as the month of April ends……

It struck me a while ago, that it seems a little unfair to give the burden of encompassing all the Fools on this earth, and their Foolish actions, one day of acknowledgment … being April the 1st ?!?

…. when it’s pretty clear now, that Foolishness runs 24/7, somewhere on this earth, within someones’ movements, actions or behaviour …..

So, this month’s little ditty gets into this day, and the fools of this earth, and suggests that April shouldn’t really have to carry the load, all on her own ……

So, take a listen…..
and don’t feel bad, if you deserve a fools cap …..

We’ve all been there at some time or another …..

People and Changes … written by Big Virge 24/10/2013

Yes Yes … Motha Funkstas’ …..

Been a while, as per usual now, because much like what is being spoken about by many these days, including, Brand & Paxman seemingly !?!

I am getting older…… aaahhhhh …… LOL

…. and, numbed to much that the people of the world, now, seem to be falling in line with, be it, rhetoric about political movements, coming from the multitude of blood suckers in governments around the globe, from everybody’s friend B.O. !!!!

…. to, Cameron, to, our own Freundel, here in Bim, to, pretty much everything and anything that refers to monetary issues, causing pressures that are now hitting, an abundance of the general populous.

Until it happens to you eh folks ???

Until wars of … National, or, street varieties, get close to your door, like robberies, and criminal boldness, that, would once of been seen as, untenable, even by criminals, back in the day, right !?!

There are many people who I have met in this life, who have all the right TALK, but, only when someone, who is, let’s say, of their ilk, speaks on it publicly, and, causes a stir.

However, the cowardice in some is becoming evident, as they are now jumping on, whichever issue, suits their position, by this, I mean ….

Choosing to side with something, that, stops them from having to think or explain how they have been, happy to be party to, or, in other words, pleading ignorance to things, which, they knew in their hearts, didn’t sit right with them, but, somehow, they stood by, regardless of their doubts about their actions …..

Hmmmm ….. ???

I would highly recommend, the documentary on Killer Whales, called, ” Blackfish “, as a prime example, having recently watched it.

The idea that, keepers, fishermen, and people who run places like Seaworld, in Orlando, had the animals best interests at hearts, is truly astounding !!!!!

I’ve said it before about, white folks and their animals/pets, and it is never far from my mind, when I see people kissing their dogs, that, previously had their mouths, on their ball sack or privates !!!!!

Eeeeeeeuuuuuwwwwww !!!!!!

…. it is incredible to me …. !!!!!!

YES … they have less, to, no inclination to rob or shoot your ass, but, there has to be some sense of acknowledgement, that, they are ANIMALS, NOT …. Human Beings, who, could well do with a sense of the … ” Love ” … on a simply, human level.

I have been very fortunate, after an iffy period here in Bim, to have found some, incredibly cool people to vibe with, reason with, and share a sense of human love with, and NO, I ain’t talking bout no f’ing gyal, on some bullchit, love tip, cos my dick is getting licked !!!!!

I’m talking about that brotherly and sisterly love, that comes from reasoning about things, that are much more basic, than, the planet and it’s environment, that, has it’s own, VERY POWERFUL, ecosystem, that, no amount of recycling is gonna change, due to it’s ability, beyond our cognitive powers, to adapt and find a way to move forward !!!!

Things like, basic inequalities, such as poverty, a lack of respect and love for each other, regardless of sex, colour, or, deviant traits, and simply, an acceptance of truth in how we are able to communicate.

This week has availed so much, in terms of rhetoric within people, some are baying for blood, having dipped their feet in with the butchers of the arts, only to find them, willing to cull the purer forms of artistic expression, having previously claimed, that it was perfect ???

Others have been referring to Barbados as, “Third World”, because of governance, that has a heritage, based upon, “First World Teachings”.

Hmmmmm ….. did I say …. “First World” ….. ???

So, where the fuck is … ” The Second World ” ???
…. as a friend just asked me ?!?

It truly is amazing, the level of arrogance some people have regarding this world, due to whatever ideals they were raised upon, which are now being, ” SHATTERED “, by the information super-highway, which isn’t quite as accepting of keeping “ish”, hidden.

Pandoras Box indeed, the internet may be …. !?!

Talking of shattered, I must give a shout out to a certain, ” Steve McQueen “.

NO …. not the dead one, who played me of course, LOL, Virgil Hiltz, in, “The Great Escape”, so many moons ago, but, the one I went to school with !!!!

Yeah, i’m name dropping now …. but, in all seriousness, Turner Prize Winner, and now, award winning film maker, Steve McQueen, who seems to be alive and well, for stirring up the issue of slavery, without, Tarantino Visions, with his new film, 12 Years a Slave, based on the true story, of a once free, black man, Solomon Northup, who, ended up being a slave, seemingly, for, 12 years !!!!!

This film has clearly brought the discussion of what has been, in essence, something of a model, for, not just Killer Whales, but, nowadays, for where the leaders of the world seem to want this world to be !?!

It’s all relative, but, as per a comment Mr. McQueen made in a recent interview, with Tom Brook, of the beeb, where he intimated that, if it wash’t for the system, he wouldn’t be where he is today ….

… whether that is true or not, I wish him all the best with the film as it races towards getting some Oscars, the way people are talking.

Anyhow, is the revolution coming, as per Russell Brands’, Paxman interview, and if so, how much is he gonna earn from it ???

Just kidding, but, the realities of how people are dealing with the changes that, are being brought to the fore, in terms of, the negative elements, should not be washed away as, being about the environment or political upheaval.

Politics, as it stands, is a horse that needs flogging !!!!!

As do the people who seem to be suggesting that we stand by it, until it provides the change that the world and it’s people needs, as if politicians care about the needs of anyone beyond themselves, and their, ” Elite Club “.

What a f’ing joke it has now become, in the belly of the beast, being England, when, Russell Brand is the man calling for the … ” Revolution “, to begin !!!!!

On that note, i’ll end for now, but leave you with this cool piece of art to check out, if you haven’t, Christopher Walken is in a film called, ” The Power of Few “, which has a stellar performance from a young lady called, Tione Johnson ….

No massive reviews that rave about it’s quality, because it’s a lil bit, ” Out There “, at times, but, gets to a very interesting, revolutionary ending …..
as it were ….

One that might help us, more than, all this rhetoric about, saving the environment first ……

I say, NO, adamantly to such talk … !!!!!

…. and say, fix people, if we can do such a thing, first, and the rest should, if we do it properly, fall into place …..

Don’t get caught up people … !!!!!

We are a … LONG WAY … from the sort of revolution, I believe, we really need …..

…. which involves, these three words.

Equality, Peace & Unity !!!

One love y’all …..

The Virge.

Well, at least Mr. Zimmerman has been Good for Sumthin’ !!! … written by Big Virge 14/7/2012

The title to this post is because he’s inspired me to write some more, about, my recent visit to the US, and reminded me of much that I heard in the U.S.

…. Not Florida, but, Philadelphia, which according to various stories that I was told, in my interactions, is a state filled with, Police Brutality & Corruption !!!!!

One evening, whilst in company, a woman came into the group and immediately changed the vibe of the gathering, as she spoke about feeling pressured into going to court the next day, regarding an incident, which she proceeded to tell us, from ofcourse, “Her side of the story”, involved her and a young boy, who, she didn’t know, being arrested & searched for drugs, which were not found, as she & the youth had none, only to be dragged out of the squad car, to be then beaten by 7 out of 8 officers, whilst the female officer, officer number 8, stood and watched !!!!!

The BIG problem with this, is that ….

Oh, stupid Mutha fuckers didn’t know that she was pregnant !!!!!

She lost the child !

As the judge initially told them, “This young lady better not be troubled before this gets to court as you are on charges of murder, remember that !!!!!”

The captain of the station where these fukkers were from, personally came to apologise to the woman, who, sadly, in my opinion, was not taking this matter seriously enough, until I and a few other men started to explain to her the gravity of her position, and that, she should be doing everything possible, to not only get financially compensated, but, to use this as an opportunity to expose these officers for their behaviour, so that others would have a level of awareness, if not protection, from such …..

“Po Po’, practices.

Unbelievable, but true, however, it seemed that she was highly fearful of reprisals, beyond the law, by said officers, or their fraternity …. which …. links suitably to, guess who, Mr. Zimmerman !!!

Is it something about the name George that America likes, that means that they can get away with all kinds of wickedness, and pay no price for it ?!?

Zimmerman and Georgie Bush, seem to have got away with murderous acts in the name of ….

“Defence of their territory !”

So, realistically, this … ” Stand Your Ground “, Florida Law, should avail freedom for people, fearing the police, as most people of colour do, to, shoot them without fear of punitive measures from the states judicial system, under the grounds of self-defence … ???

…. or is that, just for, … Fairer-Skinned Folks, as plenty of white folks will be running the, “Ahhh but Zimmerman’s Mexican !!!!”, rhetoric.

It is interesting to me though, having found myself in a neighbourhood, that is predominantly white, in Barbados, how my neighbours, in over a year, have yet to introduce themselves, other than from a very …. ” Safe Distance !!!”

It’s crazy funny to me, or, as Mos Def has said, ” It’s So SERIOUS, i’m Laughing “, because, as much as recent occurrences in this area, suggest a level of need for such neighbourhood watches as per the Zimmerman case, here in Bim. The manner of some of the white folks when first seeing me, even now, does have me now thinking, could I of ended up being shot, if I happened to be walking through here at the wrong time of night by some, “Trigger Happy” ….

” American History X “, wannabe ???

Well, fortunately, hooded garms, aren’t so much of a need here, due to the weather, but, bwoyyyyy, wit some of these, actually, not so secretive, racists, i’m beginning to wonder … ???

Sadly for me though, it has been those of a similar skin tone, who, actually make me glad that I am where I am, due to none of these white folks openly threatening to shoot or rob me, because I apparently, deserve to be !!!!!

Words like those, have though, come from, ” My People ??? “.

…. maybe …. not so much like me … ???

…. but, having been on the receiving end of such talk and attitudes, it isn’t so hard to see why a lot of white people view black people as a threat, and, in many ways, a strain of humanity, that, needs to be kept away from them !!!

However, back to Philly, and let me show you how it can be translated in their actions, which proves their stance to be as f’ckd up, as that of blacks, who feel that, due to another black persons progression, they need to be dragged back to where they seem, happy to be.

I walk in to one of the, Radisson Hotels’ toilets in Philly, on my recent visit, to see a white guy, visibly disturbed by my appearance, but, he relaxed, “A little”, upon seeing that I wasn’t about to rob him … ?!?

…. only to have, two rather merry … (inebriated) … older white guys walk in to see us at the urinals, which then was quickly followed by one of them loudly proclaiming to their white compadre, “Careful he don’t rob you !!!”.

The … “Truth Juice”, had clearly got the better of him, now, I could ofcourse, now be in prison for decapitating his ignorant ass, but, upon looking at the first white guys face, it was as if his eyes were saying,

“Damn it you redneck fuck, I was thinking it, but, you had to go there didn’t ya !?!”.

Who was the worst racist … ???

…. well, debatable, but, my non-reaction, is to retain my freedom, so that I can pass on the FACT, that, such attitudes have never been removed, perhaps because of judicial decisions like this, “Not Guilty”, Zimmerman bullpish !!!!!

I’m gonna cut this one here, as today, on a thread I started, a comment was placed on it by a young white guy, who seemed unabashed in stating that, “He doesn’t care whether Zimmerman is guilty or not, because racism has been placed above the law !”.

… which is a JOKE, in his view.

Well, when I see such attitudes being so brazenly shown, especially by white peeps, it reminds me of these things …..

How many of them … FEAR … Immigration checks, when travelling ?!?

… or, “Stop and Search”, from Po Po ???
… or Beatdowns, to the degree that the young woman I met in Philly, went through ???

…. but, more important than all of these things is this, how many of these, “PC Laws”, are written by … Black People, for the benefit of … Black People, in countries where, “These Laws”, do not relate, ONE IOTA, to the indigenous people of countries like, The …. let me stress ….

UNITED …. States of America …. huh …. ??? ! ???

Even in places like Barbados, as much as there are black figureheads now, their doctrine seems to follow those of the colonialists, who whipped their forefathers into shape.

As I was recently told, about the coastguard here, apparently, when someone calls for help due to difficulties in the waters,

Why would the first question be … ???

“Are they tourists … !???!”

People… People… People… SMH SMH SMH !!!!!

When will we learn to get past being open, and, more important than that,

“Impartial and Logical”, regarding things that, CLEARLY, are not right …. !!!!!

Like Mr. Zimmerman, not being found guilty of … ANYTHING … when he still has the blood of a young mans murder, on his hands ……

Think about it …….

Riots and protests now ….. for what ….. ???

To fuel more need for, Hard-Hitting Policing and law changes that impinge even further on, civil liberties ….

Good luck with that people ….. !!!!!

What a crazy place the U.S, has become, under the guise of … ” Change “, under the Obama administration ….

What a joke !!!!!!!!!
