You gotta love it … !!! … written by Big Virge 28/11/2013

It’s taking quite a lot these days for me to, str8 blog, as it were …

Ya know what, you gotta love, “Facehook”, don’t ya !?!

It gives people, the option, to stay connected to, trends, events, and in some cases, find, long lost friends … !!!!

Well, I say, “Facehook”, because, some of these people, who determine, THEMSELVES, to be, “Your Friends”, recognise, from say, a couple of posts that a person makes, that, actually, They and You, are really on, “VERY DIFFERENT PAGES !!!”.

I found this out yesterday, and today, when I suddenly, realised that, someone who met me in recent times, had unfriended me !!!!

Why ???

Well, I guess he knows, and he’d probably say that, “Well, Your Attitude Virge, is very Negative and Disrespectful, to people in general, and, to my country !!!”

Hmmmmmm the, “Last Bit”, is where it all begins, the issue of racism, is still a very, “Touchy One”, for, “Most People”, for obvious reasons, but, when the shoe is thrown out of the box, as in, ” EXPOSURE “. of racist attitudes and tendencies, from, in this case, English folks,

“Oh, I am fed up with hearing about it !!!”, is the type of reply, that seems to prevail ???

… as if we, black folks, should STOP !!!

… frying that chip on our shoulder, and just, swallow our pain, and shut our mouths about it, when it is clear that, it has NOT, gone away, even in 2013 !!!!!

As I now live on old, “Plantation”, land, where as a rasta’ yute, told me yesterday, black Folks, “COULD NOT COME TO !!!”, in the, ” Good Ol’ Days !!!!! “.

Oh, I should just, FORGET, about that right !!!
Especially when, their legacy is connected, directly, to England ?!!!?

Oh, okay then, funny that, when, I don’t see, that many black folks living up in here, even now !!!!!

However, who can afford to rent, the BIGGER properties, up in here, oh, “British High Commission”, peoples’ !?!

Hmmmmmm so, how much change has actually occurred in the last couple of hundred years, not that much, it would seem ??

Meantime, war vets’ who have died since, way back whenever !!!!!

We should, celebrate, and pay homage to them, even today ?!?

… while the families of victims, of ridiculous, bombing campaigns and attacks, or should I say, INVASIONS, into lands where they, WERE NOT INVITED, are still having to find ways to overcome, not only their family losses, but, additionally, their loss of …

” IDENTITY ” … !!!!!

A thing that has, Extensive Repercussions, that clearly, can last for generations !!!!!

The funny thing is that, a place like Facebook, has become for some, a place to, PARADE, Flags, and their pride for, what were, and are, essentially, contract killers, who, in the case of say, Christopher Alder, seemed to have had a contract, that, was FLAWED, as he died, or, was more than likely, MURDERED, on a police station floor, while policemen laughed and roared, monkey taunts !!!!!

Can we black folks post & express about it, without being called, “Haters of the UK”, where this happened ???

“Oh, we should, again, talk about it in private, don’t dare try to expose the wicked, horrific dealings, of the upper echelons of the Union Jack !!!! which as the song said, never had, and STILL doesn’t, have any black in it !!!!!

Man …… !!!!

Loss of, ” Friends “, or, comments that then define the, callous & ignorant levels of some, English Minds, comes to pass,

“Why didn’t you get the fuck out before then !!!”

Hmm, forgetting that, in some cases, we don’t all, just leave our, “Loved Ones”, in my case, my mother !!!

… to be left in the hands of white peoples’ care, who seem to like to keep, Dead Black Soldiers bodies, after they’ve told the family, that they have buried their son & brother, for some, ten years after, the ACTUAL BURIAL !!!!!

… as was the case for Mr. Christopher Alder, RIP, who, after being, “Allegedly”, buried, was held, in their care, for essentially, TEN YEARS, without any reason being given, up to now, that makes any kind of sense !!!!!

I suggest these, smart-mouthed fellas, put their tea cups down, and try smelling the coffee, without the milk in it, for a change !!!

I was very reluctant to join Facebook, but, now I actually, enjoy using it, if, for nothing more, than to see, who does or doesn’t share, REAL SHIT !!!, and who uses it for, “Banter”, as if that’s a … “Positive Way” … to indulge in a social network, that, if used appropriately, could perhaps, start movements, like say, Twitter Campaigns, although, obviously filled with, “Twits”, mostly !!! LOL !!!

That are, apparently, beyond government controls !!!

The Double Standards and Bullshit of people, REALLY, comes to light, in a way, that, can clear up any, bogus relationships, that exist, in maybe, one of the parties minds, about the level of connection/closeness, that they may, or may not, have …. ???

There is INDEED, a difference between, “Acquaintances”, and, “Friends” … !!!!!


I have, ” Friends “, on Facebook, who, have threatened to rob me, come in my home, and been so selfish, as to drink out mans’ drink, to the point where, they, only barely, managed, to beg for a bucket to puke in, and, of course !!!

The “covert”, watchers, of what I post, who are sitting there, waiting for their opportunity, to make their, Sneak Attack, off some other cuntholes’ back !!!!!

Am I pissed or stressed ???
NO … !!!

I just have a brain, and intellect, which, allied to my basic levels of common sense, allow me to express my point of view with intelligence and deference, to, these peoples’, crude moves.

Friends, well, FOOLS, I’m glad to lose !!!

“TRUE FRIENDS”, recognise truths, and deal with them !!!!!

or, do the right thing, ” Agree to Disagree “, and move on, if possible, but, when a person expresses to you, due to your views, that, you should unfriend them, just be REAL with yourself, and, do it people !!!

Don’t leave a name on your friend page, who you know in your heart, you have a problem with, because of their views/attitude, etcetera etcetera …..

As said, what I am beginning to love about the web, is it’s social networks, trolls aside, because people really, seem to believe that, they can say what they want, without repercussion.

I recognise, more than most, the level of danger I bring to myself, by speaking my mind, but, as I read in another poets words, called, “Herbaliser”, from London,

“It is a bold step for a man to admit his truths,
Esspecially when tarnished with clues.
In this world, why is it hard to tell truths?”

Well, if … “Facehook”, is anything to go by …

because certain truths, are clearly, too painful
for, certain people to take, especially when,
they believed that, it would seem, in my case,
that my brain would refrain, from using, “Their News”,
to CLEARLY explain, that, views they hold
about how great their country is …

Define, to me, that things haven’t changed
They remain the same, when it comes to race
and what they, pay attention to
and, more importantly,
what should be, conveniently,
swept under the carpet
and locked away !!!!!

Double Standards, CLEARLY EXIST !!!

when I am told,
“I should button my lip !”
when it comes to things
that EXPOSE, The English,
for their, dirty tricks
and, how their worst, live …

It must be me,
who is the, ” Racist ”

You gotta love it !!!!!

A bit of … “Here”, leading to some of … “There” … Philly Diaries 1 … written by Big Virge 20/6/2013

Yes Yes folks ….

What’s good in your zone … ???

Well, in mine, down the south coast of Bim, surrounded by white folks, it ain’t a joke, as the rogues looking to get a quick pay off, are getting close !!!

Prior to leaving these shores recently, it had become evident that many south coast beach front properties were being robbed, even the Jamaican PM’s fam had a safe taken, apparently !!!

Now, the interesting part of that story is that, in speaking to a Jamaican buddy, who has a business here, recently, his reaction was most interesting when hearing about the robbery of Jamaican Dignitaries ….

His reaction was,

“Good, she and her family continue to leave people impoverished whilst living a lavish lifestyle, and then, have the cheek to claim to care about the poor people of Jamaica !!!”

Harsh right !!!?!!!

Well, upon reflection, one would need to assess any level of sympathy you have for people of such ilks, and those, within the hierarchies of society ……..

I do not advocate, robbing and teefing on any level, however, much like Chris Rock done say bout’ beating woman,

“I ain’t about to beat them, but, I will shake the shit out of a bitch, to wake her the fuck up !!!” …. (paraphrased of course) ….

So, in applying it to Barbados and the slow, but sure, rise in crime, who deserves to be robbed, or, better still, who can afford to be robbed uh people ???

I just picked up some food in the Lanterns Mall, and had a discussion with the girls, who were quick to say that, you know what, all these poor people, robbing who they think have money, well, as one of those who isn’t, poverty stricken, but, who still needs to get paid to maintain, I would say this to these young brothers :

“Fellas, is it me, or, is it those around me, who are affecting your ability to live as you’d like ?!?”

“Are your ideals of what you NEED, in perspective and logical ?!?”

….. come on guys, robbing your own is not cool, even if they may live a little differently, note, differently, NOT BETTER, material things, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT …… make a Happy Person !!!

Hard as it is to believe, dont let the big cars, trophy wives and husbands, fool you, behind closed doors, many of these people are some of the most unhappy, twisted, lost souls you will ever find, believe in that … !!!

….. just look at how some of these REALLY HIGH PROFILE actors die, not peacefully, in many cases.

Thus, a quick RIP to James Gandolfini !!!

I know i’m gonna get a WHAT !?!, from most people, but, never watched a full episode of The Sopranos, but, in anything i’ve seen with him, he was always very good, and by initial tributes, seemed to be a very cool dude offscreen !!!


So, talking of cool people, and the US, here is my first instalment of my Philadelphia diaries …..

However, due to this news of men moving in my area, waving and pointing guns at workers, during the day, I have to start with a conversation I had with my new, Jamaican, U.S. buddy, “Reggae Surge”, from G-Town radio, who spoke on a situation he was part of, not so long ago in Jamaica, having been raised there, but, having spent a lengthy period away from the island.

He explained how he had returned to JA, for a holiday, and was in his old neighbourhood, so, had decided to go for a walk in his old district, late one night. He got into what would of been an old stomping ground, and said that he felt as if there was danger in the air, but, due to his being Jamaican, felt comfortable to carry on walking, but, having got to an old block of his, was quickly, in essence, scoped by a guy on a stoop, who, immediately spoke to him in a very aggressive tone, only for him to be shouted at by a man behind him, who knew Surge, from way back, who quickly explained to the man,

“Yow, he is so and so’s nephew/whatever, jus cool nah man, and let man roll !!!”.

Surge said he was told in no uncertain terms afterwards, “Don’t move so bredrin, Jamaica has changed, so, cool you cool, but, watch yourself !!!”.

Now, Jamaica seems to get a bad rep, I have yet to go, but, it does sound as though people need to recognise, from a global perspective, the dangers of being a … “Have Not”, in todays’ society of … ” Bling Blang Wrong !!! ”

I had a conversation in my hotel in Philly, with a couple from Connecticut, so, ofcourse, I brought up the subject of the Newton shootings with this elderly couple, now, it was clear that the husband was wary, but, had asked me for local info, thinking I was a local, but, when I started on the school shooting, his wife/partner, was quick to express her sadness and dismay at such a crazy happening, but, it always begs the question in my mind, it’s fine when we black folks have got it going on in our neighbourhoods, but, once it encroaches on white folks bliss-filled, neighbourhoods, it’s a SERIOUS matter, that needs to be addressed, with immediate effect !!!

Hmmmm, one has to hope that these days, less of these primitive attitudes exist, but, in reality, it would seem, as it has always done, as though the importance of safety for people, does not revolve around black communities.

Sad, but, I think, ultimately true.

In leaving this subject for now, I was explaining to the girls in Lanterns. that, the mindset of the people robbing, is seriously corrupted, when, as i’ve quoted before, men like RZA speak it loud and clear in interviews ….

Ask a F’ing Nigga to go rob some OTHER Niggas, they’re in the car before you, but ask them to go after Police, or, heaven forbid, Politicians, and those within the Corporate World, who hold the REAL MONEY, and who truly live, in my opinion, way beyond their needs, not only is there …. silence ……….

….. but, these same apparent, Bad Bwoy, Street Thugs and Killers, become very distant.

I remember reading a piece of my art, which speaks on Black on Black issues, to a young black man, who lived up the road from me in London, one day, only to hear,

“Very Good, but, you should be careful, speaking THAT STUFF !!!”

….. as if, trying to uplift the mindset of our people, was some kind of …

” Cardinal Sin !!! ”

I really hope, as i’ve just been told, that, when corrupt practises are being found to be true, in echelons, above and beyond the levels of crime that are clearly, disturbing more and more people now, that, the people of this island stand up and be counted, because the best way to stop a lot of this foolishness is to stand firm collectively, and ensure that these rogue criminals, be they street, or, more importantly, officials charged with peoples’ safety, that, they are challenged publicly/internationally, if needs be, a la the ongoing rape debacle of the two English Women, and with immediate effect !!!!!

Don’t get tie up people, I am not saying, try and play, ” Daddy Big Bollocks “, if an intruder comes into your home with weaponry, but, I hope you all, whether white, black, rich or poor, get the gist of what i’m saying !!!!!

Don’t wait until,

” It happens to you !!! “, to be concerned.

…. be concerned NOW, as you should always be & as i’ve said recently, people, stop with all this, divisive bullchit !!!

…and …

” Try Your Best Yes …
Your … VERY … BEST !!!
to make a … ” DIFFERENCE ”

So, to my struggling brothers & sisters ….

As my big brother, “Jabba”, from Jabsrocking, done show me …

“Who Jah Bless, No-one curse …
Why you want to steal … ?
from your Brother, ” FIRST ??? ”

Stop the Violence … !!!


Stop the Fukry … !!!!!!!!!!

Come on people …. !!!

One love & Bless up y’all …
