” Subject Matter ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

So folks …..

Here we are in 2018 …. !!!!!

and this is how it starts …..

Government Shutdown in President Trump’s … GREAT AMERICA …

Remember the mans’ slogan people … !!!!!

Racial slurs of a quite extreme nature regarding a certain, Meghan Markle from the partner, Uh Hmmm …… of UKIP’s current leader, Henry Bolton.

Now this is the woman he left his wife, Tatiana Smurova, a good ol’ British name, for……

Some topless model, Jo Marney, who probably should reserve her commentary on people, as she is hardly, the hottest white chick that ever walked the earth.

It’s incredible how they seem so deluded about their, white whatever, and by ” They ” ……

YES i’m including, President Trump, who clearly had, or maybe, has no issue with sleeping with Porn Pro’s, like Stormy Daniels no less, with her Big Fake Titties, and, flat old butt ….

Now don’t get me wrong, she’s a damn site better than Boltons bit on the side, but, the idea that these people can speak in such derogatory ways about foreign people and their nations, in the case of Trump, and just about any immigrants, EXCEPT THEMSELVES, in the case of the UKIP faithful, who, like Mr. Trump, vehemently denies any form of racist attitude ….. ?!?!?

Hmmmm … well, let’s move on, and of course, as a new year begins, money matters become a hot topic, although, right about now, not so many appear to be flossing quite like they used to.

Barbados seems reluctant in an election year, to resolve a DISGUSTING, Sewage issue on it’s South Coast, which has apparently drawn attention from British, Canadian and US Tourist Boards, who are advising tourists that it’s not quite so much of a Caribbean Island Paradise getaway, right now !

So, moving on, we have an abundance of Gay / Whatever issues, from poor old Ginuwine’ being accused of being Trans-Phobic ….

WHATEVER The Fuck that means …. !!?!!

I guess i’m Trans phobic too ….

Maybe of being Trans-Warped into a world where people who are straight are vilified, for merely expressing a preference to stick to what they like, rather than jump on the LGBT Train, to make the poor little whatevers’, feel comfortable.

This leads me to Mr. Chappelle’s, ” Equanimity “, stand up show, which drew some attention for his LGBT routine, rather than his Emmett Till, race / immigration segment, which was not only a very serious reminder of the issues of black people, in America and across the globe, but also a very clever piece of stand-up comedy !

Now I def’ have my issues with much of Daves’ past material, however, one thing that can’t be denied is his comedy genius, when directed appropriately, but as he would probably say,

“Hey, i’m just f’ing around, and why the fuck are people so sensitive ?”

Indeed ……

As he relates stories of his varying issues with audience members, at his live shows, regarding everything from inter-racial relationships, to the whole taboo subject of well, not falling in line with the pink parade, it does seem increasingly ridiculous, the levels of importance being placed on a recently formed movement, whilst the struggles of black folks, are still demeaned, and in fact, ridiculed now, as some form of satiric attempt to wake racists up.

Hmmm …..

YEAH ALRIGHT …..

…. and this leads me to my viewing of Dear White People, the series, written by Justin Simien who has affirmed that the main character, who is a nerdy journo wannabee’, who happens to have his sexuality issues. Issues which are resolved by him affirming that he’s into men, underpinning the issue of racism on college campuses, especially those that have been quite open about having, black face parties of recent.

Well, I have to say, perhaps a little less, freaky, sexual stuff, and more grit regarding the race issue, would have been nice to see, especially in Trumps America !

Instead, what we get is an abundance of quite, crass humour, about a subject that, in this day and age of racist outbursts, from leaders, actors, sports people ….. etcetera etcetera, this Netflix show could of been more than some attempt to give white folks something, to dismiss as being, light-hearted fodder for them to be able to say, they see the problems we face and get it now ….

Something that, I very much doubt that they’ll get from the show if they got past the first couple of episodes, which quickly shift from race to sexuality, and back again, within a 30 minute show, attempting to cover college life.

Suffice to say, much like Django before it, it just shows me how differently black folks from America, and those from places like Barbados, now think.

It’s quite worrying, to say the least, when it comes to what’s important, regarding matters of racism, and our part in the whole allowance of it, in todays world.

Hiding behind comedy and media, is not what the debate needs, it needs to get REAL, and stop diluting the discussion, by placing it alongside Trans-whatev… issues, as if, as Chappelle puts it, they are the Olympic Champs of suffering & oppression, when it’s quite clear the level of power they possess, and have had for a considerable time, even if they were behind closet doors, wielding it.

This leads me to Molly’s Game, Chastain and Idris, going at it, to represent the trials and tribulations of skier, Molly Bloom, who, essentially ran the biggest, underground poker games of recent times, that had the likes of Tobey Maguire, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck, amongst it’s participants, alongside Russian Mafia and some of the richest men in the world, as she states in an interview with Ellen, one of whom lost 100 Mill one night, and came back and paid his debt the next day !!!!!

CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY ….. !!!!!!

Elba and Chastain are EXCELLENT, in my humble opinion, even though Idris’s character is fictional, their scenes together, are something to behold.

Amazingly, Bloom’s story seems to stick to the subject, rather than throw in random subject matter, to forward agendas.

It’s a straight up film about a very crazy passage in this womans’ life, suffice to say I really enjoyed it, as I did the new Star Wars, apart from it being Disneyfied’, a little too much, which would also be my only issue with the new Thor.

A Very Entertaining ride, but for something as dark as Ragnarok, the end of times, it did lean a little too much perhaps, towards being light hearted and funny …..

So, in assessing how things seem to be heading this year, I think this post is as appropriate a piece as any, to start this year with, because it was inspired by what I feel is the weakening of material in many areas of entertainment now, in some vain attempt to, not offend.

Well, I for one, will never stop pushing that button, that apparently, President Trump, and his North Korean nemesis, keep claiming they’ll push, if the other doesn’t behave.

Well, let’s hope they’re just waving their respective genitalia around for show, and don’t end up blowing holes in this world, because as this poem suggests, I think we have enough that currently need filling ……

There’s so much more that could be included in this post, however, for now, this month’s subject …. is ….

” Open Season ” … Prod by Strat Carter

Well, it seemingly, isn’t currently a subject, that’s hitting the headlines, but it’s a subject that never really leaves the minds of black people ….

and, following on from my previous post, it seems that as this piece relates, we still have to be very mindful of our place, when dealing with the ….

Good ol’ ….

Boys In Blue ……

Well, these words deserve a place, way up in these ignorant feds’, who still seem to think that when they see us, we’re a target for them to aim at, as if it’s ….

Well ……

Open Season ……

Indeed, not only, Powerful, but, REAL TALK … from David Banner

When I think of the amount of people who keep saying,

“Oh, but, things are okay, and are “BETTER”, what are you complaining about …. especially in good ol’ Blighty (England) …..

It makes you wonder, as Mr. Banner appropriately states, what f’ing world these people live in !!?!!

Well, here is a black man who has made something of himself, but, hasn’t let the headlights of fame, affect his brain …..

Str8 talk from Mr. Banner !
