” It’s Incredible ” … written & performed by Big Virge

Well Well peoples’ …..

Incredible times since my last post ….. !!!!!

Too many things going on, to mention any particular one event, as being THAT Incredible, compared to the next, however, just a few things that did catch my attention ….

Bill Maher running some, ” House Nigger “, talk, as a JOKE of course … on US TV.

Yup… Pretty Incredible …
SMH … !!!!!!

Then, Ice Cube, being the one to chastise and seemingly … EDUCATE him, about it’s usage by white folks ….

Just as Incredible …

Congressman being shot at in the US, while playing Baseball at a Park …

Yup… Pretty Incredible …

The shooter, being some rather disgruntled, old fella, ending up dead before any questions could be asked of him…..

Not quite so Incredible, but hey … it’s America so ….

Got to mention, Pakistan winning the ICC Champions Trophy, in England, having defeated the same, apparent favourites …. LOL ….

Err NOT … on their way, and actually beating the best one day side, India, in the final … Congrats to them ….

Incredible achievement …. !!!!!

Anyway, moving on, Johnny Depp running, Kill The Trumpster’ talk … !!!

Well, on the basis of recent reports about his behaviour towards, ex wife, Amber Heard, and his, allegedly being, a rather unstable and abusive character when he’s ready ….

Not so Incredible again, but hey, interesting, nonetheless ….

Captain Jack may in actual fact be … QUITE MAD …. !!!!!

Talking of flicks, Wonder Woman’s big screen arrival, and dominance ….

Well, having seen it in Grenada in an ICE BOX of a Cinema !!!!!
(Now, HOT, YES it may be, but, ease back on the air con nuh’ man ! Film me ah try fee watch, NOT … catch cold doing it 2 rahted’ … LOL … !!!!!)

Well, all I can say is, Whoo Rasshole WOO, for the Feminists …. !?!

Yeah, some reasonable action, but seriously, yet another hero, I mean…

” Heroine ” of course, Killing …. to preserve peace … ???

Well, she certainly likes kicking some ass !!!?!!!

Plotwise, and cast wise, well, this I found more interesting than the film, when it all played out, and I had time to assess it all.

So, Ex Israeli Defence Force girl, being Gadot, takes on the role of the…

” Righteous Warrior ” ……

Huh Hmmm … Any Coinkeydink’ in how she managed to get cast as an, AMAZON, Warrior Princess … who is ultimately AGAIN …

Righteous … ?!?

I also AGAIN, say, AMAZON … ???

Well, if Hollywood has issues with whitewashing characters/stories, they clearly didn’t see it here !!!

…. However, Ms. Gadot is fairly pleasing on the eye,

…. for …. white audiences right … ???

but hey, if she can lift a Goddess Warriors’ Sword, then I should get a go at being the next Bond 2 rass …. LOL ???

However, her first ally, outside of her home, in the movie, is wait … ?

An American Soldier …. again ….

Any coinkeydink with the ACTUAL … USA/Israel relationship … ???

A little concerning, until, after all’s said and done, Terrible Germans getting blamed for being such AWFUL, Murderers and Propagators of War, we find out that the, ” GOD OF WAR “, Ares, as defined in the flick, is actually ….. Wait for it ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

British … !!!!!

ENGLISH … in fact !!!!!!

So, the man in the movie who claims to have, CHECK IT …..

Manipulated humans from various places, to wage war, because that’s what we are apparently good for, comes from Good Ol’ England …. ?!!!?

I’d say the way that the film connects nations and vibrations of a violent, deceitful and wicked type, is … when you look at the world at large ….

” PRETTY DAMN … INCREDIBLE ” …

However, it’s just a comic book, fictional tale, put trough the Hollywood Machine, so, nothing to read into there …..

Okay ….
Yeah Right …. !!!!!

All this, while Manchester, London Bridge & where, Finsbury Park of all places … !!!!!!

Received TERROR Attacks of varying degrees, and from various creeds it would seem …..

Theresa May made an election Boo Boo, and didn’t re-inforce her majority, but has ended up calling on Northern Irelands DUP, to gain some kind of majority for her Brexit talks etcetera to get through the Houses in Westminster, after her parties, election debacle !!!!!

Yup … Pretty Incredible … !!!!

But Wait … The last of the things i’ll mention for now, has to be the INCREDIBLE SCENES, that saw Grenfell Tower, in West London, basically become a towering inferno …. !!!!!!

Well, there’s nothing, remotely funny about the loss of homes, livelihoods and lives….

However, a lot of … ” Funny Business ” … would seem to encompass everything, from initial media coverage, to discoveries of flammable, REJECTED material, being used in the building, that was allegedly sanctioned by Government, and some clearly, very shady, cold hearted companies, who could clearly have cared less for the residents !

Even The Queen went to view the aftermath ….. !!!

INCREDIBLE … Indeed, and all this before I even get to Africa and other incidents overseas, in the past few weeks ….

Well Finally, I had an Incredible time in Grenadas’ … Island of Spice, so, gladly, i’ve been far away from such sights and scenes …..

So with such Incredible times, it only seems right for me to make this month’s post, some … Incredible Rhymes …..

Check them out ….
and be careful out there people …. !!!!!

“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.

“Let’s Get Things Straight” … A Poem written by Big Virge 26/2/2006

A report ….
I’ve read … today …
has left me … feeling …
Quite … AMAZED … !!!!!

Forces Types … who have …
… ” Some Stripes ” …
Appear to … Take …
Drugs like … COCAINE … ?!?

or ….
“Other Drugs” … classed …
as … YES … ” Class A ” … !!!!!

Well once they’re of …
A … ” Certain ” … rank … !!!

In an …
EXCEPTIONAL … Circumstance … !!!

are … NOT … to be told
They’ve … GOT TO GO … !!!

The ideas being … ” Sold ” …
they should get … REHAB … !!!!!

and then kept on
when assessed to be …
…… ” STRONG ” ….. !!!?!!

Now don’t get me wrong
But ……….. ??? ………..

What’s up with that plan …. !!!!!!!!?!!!!!!!

Are … drug dealers … ?!?
Inside … Their Camps … !!!!!

” Offering ”
Speed … Cocaine …
and …. CRACK …. !!! ….

are they … people …
they now … Enlist … ?!?

If you want
… The List …
Try … ” M.I.6. ” …

They seem to … “Hold” …
” The Keys ” … to all this …

and …..
Over The Years …
Have Given …
” Young Kids …

” This Type ”
of … FIX … !?!

“Who’s up for ?
Some L.S.D. ?!?”

“Come on sarge !
Stop teasing me !
It helps me deal,
with things I see !!!”

But … later on …
when that life’s … ” Gone ” …
they … CANNOT SLEEP … !!!!!!!
because of … BAD VISIONS … !!!!!
in their ……. ” Dreams ” …….

” Apocalypse Now ” …
Proved This … to me …

Well … like … ALI … !!!!!

They’d better …
….. BELIEVE ….. !!!!!!
I’ll NEVER … join …
…… Their ……

” Drugged ” … armies … !!!!!

No wonder … A Wealth …
have … KILLED … themselves … !!!

The Drugs …
They’re … FED … !!!!!
” Affect ” … mental health … !!!

They’ve seen …..
BLOODSHED … !!!!

and lose their … ” Friends …
and do this ….. for …… ?
These … ” Government Men ” …
who watch … This Stuff …
on … ” News at Ten ” … ?!!!?

They should … Present …
THE DEAD … to … THEM … !!!!!

Leave them … Lying …
in ….. ” Their Beds ….. !!!!!

I bet they’d … QUICKLY …
LOSE …” Their Heads ” … !!!!!

This simply … Proves …
They … ” USE and ABUSE ” …
and …. Send Forces …
Once … ” Drug Induced ” … ?!?

These days … ” The News ” …

“DRUGS ARE BAD … !!!!!
DRUGS ARE BAD … !!!!!”

“Except for” … CELEBS …

So … what about … ” Blacks ” … ?
Who … ” They Say ” …
…. SELL CRACK …. !!!!!

There’s CLEARLY … A NEED … !!!
in …. ” Forces Camps ” …. !!!!! ….

Would our officials … ?
Sanction … THAT … !!?!!

That could be
A NEW … ” Rehab Scheme … ?!?

” Crack Dealing ” … CRIMINALS … !!!
” Supplying ” … Our SENTINELS … !!!

Isn’t that … CREDIBLE … ?!?

They’d kill two birds
with … Crack and Speed … !!!

Keep the … ” Dealers ” …
Off …. Our Streets …. !!!!!!!!
and use … REHAB TEAMS …
Like … ” Property ” …
Make a … THRIVING …
…… INDUSTRY ……. !!!!

One that … could take …
” Squaddies ” … money … !!!!

Then … of course …

A KNIGHTHOOD …
….. for me ….. !!!!!!!

for … Contributions ….
to … CHEMISTRY …
and Policies for … HEALTH …
and ……. COMMUNITIES ……. !!!!!

THANK YOU … That’s Great … !!! …
but … ” LET’S GET THINGS STRAIGHT ” …

Who on earth … ?!?
Thinks it’s … OKAY …

to send … forces to war
when they’re … Quite Sure …
of … DRUGS … They Take … !?!

” Chemical ” … weeds …
and other … ” Class A ” … !!!

Pete Doherty …..
should be sent … with …

….. ” SPEED ” ….. !!!!!!

Into … Iraq …
and … Afghanistan … !!!!!

If he didn’t fight …
They’d be … Alright … !!!!!

because … ” His Squadron ” …
would just get … ” HIGH ” … !!!!!!

They’d do a … ” Better Job ‘ …
than the … U.N. … lot … !!!!!

It’s a CRAZY … plot … !!! …
but … “Doch” … Would ROCK … !!!!!

Don’t get me wrong … !!!
He’s Got … ” Problems ” … !!!

He’s faced … The Courts ..
but … of course … GOT OFF … !?!

because … “They Say” …

” He NEEDS … Re-hab …
and should write …
…. more songs … !!! ”

But the … M.O.D. … ?
What’s their … EXCUSE … !?!

for … The masses …
….. Paying Tax ….. !!!
for soldiers … ” REHAB ” … ?!?

Don’t know … about you …
but I take …. ISSUE …. !!!
with … paying for … THAT …
and the war in … Iraq … !!!!!

Now … this is why … ?
I’m a little bit … MAD …

Another report …
in the news … Today …
Has … Relayed … that …

Officials … say …

“It’s time for a … CHANGE … !!!
Let’s REDUCE … Sentences
for ….. ” A.B.H. ” ….. !!!?!!!”

Specifically … Those …

“COMMUNITY SENTENCES”

and no more days …
of being sent to jail … for …

“ACTUAL BODILY HARM !!!”

Even … ” MAGISTRATES ” … !!!
are ….. DEAD AGAINST ….. !!!!!

” Reducing ” …
PUNISHMENT …
For ….. “ABH” ….. !!!!!

and I have to … AGREE … !!!

If someone tried …
” Attacking ” … ME … !!!
and was then … SET FREE … ?!?
in the …. COMMUNITY …. !!!

I have to say
i’d feel … ” AGRIEVED ” … !!!!!

What kind of … PENALTY … !?!
is … CLEANING THE STREETS … !!!!!

Government Policies …
are … CLEARLY … CRAZY … !!!!!

A.B.H. …..
is a form of … ASSAULT … !!!!!

Need I say …
… ANYMORE … !!!!!

If they can’t …
Control … BRAWLS … !!!!!

Who’s … REALLY …
….. AT FAULT ….. !!!!!

Instead of …
Waging Wars …
on …. ” Foreign Shores ” ….

They should try ….
ENFORCING … Laws … !!!!!

On … ” BRITISH STREETS ” … !!!!!

“NOT” …. Putting Criminals …
In …. “COMMUNITIES” …. !!!!!! ….

I hope it’s … NOT …
… TOO LATE … !!!!! …

That’s ….
ALL … I have to say …

In amongst all the Pish that’s going on … written by Big Virge 26/8/2013

Yes Yes … Motha funksta’s … !!!!!

Well, as the, “Summer Rains”, of Barbados, do their thing, and my body keeps tellin’ me ….

“Eh bwoy, mind yaself, try and exercise, before me show you some pain ya can’t recover from … !!!”

I find myself in the midst of political shifts that are seemingly, increasing the angst levels in many people here, Bajans’ are indeed, Quite The … ” Different “, breed, in many ways … !!!!!

…. however, much like the masses of countries who live under what is essentially, still, British/Irish rule, they are complaining amongst themselves, rather than in the corridors of power, of those, they chose …. to vote in !!?!!

Thus, job pressures, strange economic decisions, and business pressures are now beginning, to seemingly, hit home. Everyone from students to some of the islands elders, are now seeing that, from the likes of LIAT, to, Barbadian Governance, there are problems in the region, that, perhaps needed to have been addressed before the likes of Richard Branson and others start to point them out to the rest of the world !!!

Anyhow, in amongst all this, I have to shout out my man Moss … !!!

… who has shown me something that, very few, in fact, hardly any Bajans’ have done, since my arrival, which is to, show me a good time amongst, “The Locals”, who, although clearly, not as well off as their white counterparts, find ways to get by, look after their young, and live in impoverished zones, just up the road from the likes of white folks who have everything and more ……… well, it would seem, but a REAL sense of community …. ???!???

Hmmmm …. I would seriously question their version of communal living against that of the block I was on last week, having had a really cool, afternoon & early evening there.

Even the bank i’m with here, who’ll get no free advertising on this page, had representatives who treated me as though, I am a human being, not some, “Scary, Crazy, Angry, Drug Induced, Maniac !!!”.

Wow, it’s taken, pretty much a year and a half, but, better late than never I guess !!!

My insurance company has also, in the last few, been showing me that they are actually, pretty efficient in ensuring that the accident I have recently been in …

(Thanks for asking everyone, yeah i’m fine !)

…. gets handled suitably, as it was quickly established that the, “white bod”, who was probably on his f’ing phone, was totally at fault !!!

Toyota here in Bim, is up to standard, at least, thus far, fairly friendly, professional and helpful, which does make you wonder what the rest of Barbados is playing at, in terms of their service ethics ???

Anyway, no such issues on the block last week, children in full flow, running around and causing as much disturbance to adults as they were, receiving love ….

A beautiful thing, and very inspiring for a writer like me …. !!!!!

The local, young puppy dog, on the lookout for a feed, which he/she got in the form of some Bajan takeout !!!!!

“Food” ….. to heighten the minds and spirits of the men and women, who, slowly but surely gathered for a dominoes session, which went from, late afternoon to night, like the sun and moon up in the sky !!!

No fancy apartments, just, I guess … ???

…. what many would many would define as, “Tenement style living”. An example being, the, Corrugated Iron Roof, over the wooden bench, where viewing of the domino table, could be availed.

All, practically built and designed, to enable the locals to chill, and, cool out, while tunes ran from yards, phones, or wherever sounds could emanate from !!!!!

I do not come from, abstract poverty, but, know what it is to use outside toilets and to bath in tubs from a pipe, and it does amaze me to this day, that, some people never escape such living !

Ghetto living, I hear you ask … ???

NO, just homes in poorer zones, while the wealthy look down at the residents, from a distance, in their heavily secured & gated homes, or ….

“Ghettos” … of a different type maybe … ?!?

So ….

“Escape” ….. is not what I see it as being, it would be to just have what the rest of us, “Well to do”, folks, have ……

Does our water make us any cleaner or better … ???

I somehow doubt it, but, as my Landlord was quick to advise me of today, my new neighbours are from the British High Commission !!!

“Like” …. Big F’ing Deal !!!!!

As if, my flying half way across the world to chill for a while, was to be next to the same ilk of Brit, who I couldn’t get close to, when living in London … !!!!!

Life eh …. You just can’t legislate for how it can play out sometimes …… ?!?

Anyway, as I explained to my landlord, “Titles'”, mean nothing to me anymore, especially when being on a block up the road, has shown me that, half of my neighbours rent for a year, could probably provide for, that, “Whole Community”, a level of development, that would avail, a less impoverished style of living !!!

I dare not say … BETTER … cos’ who’s TRULY living better huh ???

I saw peaceful, happy, fun-filled times, in just 5 hours, that, I will remember til’ the day I move on to what is hopefully, a more balanced, realm, where all this inequality, doesn’t exist.

We even had that, “Classic Moment”, where, due to one of the children’s attentive eyes, a Rather … BIG CENTIPEDE … !!!

… was spotted as dusk brought darkness to the block ….

Thank the father for, “Young Eyes”, huh !!!!

There was the usual commotion in establishing who was gonna kill it, interestingly, while my man, in his Timberlands, backed off … LOL … !!!!!

It was a reminder of why I wanted to come back here after, my visits, as a youngster, which I am thankful to my parents for doing for me, now, more than ever !!!

Maybe the other ignorant stuff that i’ve experienced, have indeed, been valuable lessons, backbiting, threats, and basically, a reluctance to face, “TRUTH”, or, show some sense of remorse for, said, ignorance, may well be about to face, Karmas’ Powers ….

Well, as time rolls on, I can only hope so …..

As for being on the block for a night, it was, indeed, a highly pleasurable experience and had none of the … “Wrong & Strong”, behaviour, that I have sadly, become accustomed to, from Bajans, claiming to have … RESPECT for man … ???!???

Well … there was … NOTHING … “Wrong & Strong”, to speak of, in this day, and, fa sure, not one iota came my way, and the funny thing is …..

This experience on … my brothers’ … BLOCK …

was …..

In amongst the Pish … that’s currently, going on …. !!!!!

Bless up y’all and have yourselves …. A GREAT WEEK !!!

One.

The Internet & it’s … “THREADS” … written by Big Virge 1/7/2013

Yes Yes Motha Suckas’ … !!!

What’s the word … ?!?

Well, as I am struggling to get to explain about my Philly diaries, i’ll use a … Internet Thread … I saw today, that asks what the Brits think of Americans ???

As most of the people on the thread were of Irish/British descent, hardly seemed worth adding to the fucking nonsensical rhetoric being spouted, but, it has lead to me posting a lil’ more, about Philly, in amongst other things, tonight.

Firstly, Big Up to my new, Fav female tennis player, mostly because of my old man lust for a nice young fit girl, who happens to be a pretty good tennis player, Ms. Sabine Lisicki, who, if she stays healthy, focussed & positive, may well be on her way to a Wimbledon title, YOU GO GIRL !!!

Having beaten the probable favourite, Serena Williams, in 3 today, I sense that this is her chance to grab the spotlight after what has clearly been a very difficult couple of years, having suffered some pretty horrid setbacks, injury wise. Always smiling, and seemingly, always happy to have the opportunity to do, one of the things she loves, i’m down !

…. and saying, Go Get That Trophy Girl !!!

…. of Polish & German roots, now a U.S. resident, if I was twenty years younger and around tennis circuits, oh yes, those legs …. anyway, I digress !!!

Good luck for the rest of the tourney Sabine !!!!

So, origins, and who likes and doesn’t like …. who …. ???

Well, Philadelphia, The City of Brotherly Love, or, is that Shuv, cha, well, whatever it is, I do think that the element of race & it’s levels of division are clear for anyone with, “Open Eyes”, to see !!!

The Yankee Doodles are far from being, as advanced with it all, as, Mr. Obama’s presidency suggests, subtle, nigger references from bar managers & their black staff, YES, F’ing Black staff, whose comments were in reference to me, indicate a subversive level of racist mentalities, that run without any kind of discussion or challenge, from, i’m sad to say, all sides, but, most definitely, in places like the very lovely, and quite plush, Radisson, down there in central Philly, around what, 17th street.

Philadelphia is a city with much history, that again, draws back to England, Charles II, and of course, William Penn, famed for Penns’ landing, and of course, Pennsylvania State right !

Well, there is proof, that, whether the English are looking at Americans, or, Visa Versa, aren’t all you the same F’ing people !?!

Oh, but ofcourse, as one white dude tried to tell me in a bar, every black baseball player, born in the U.S., is, American, well, yes that’s true, but, as I explained to him, or tried to, are they not of another origin, like say, Africa ???

… or, wherever they were transported from to be the offspring of parents, residing in the U.S., at their time of birth ???

Didn’t go down so well, especially when he insisted on showing me, I guess, in his own way, how far Philadelphia has come, due to being the last Baseball team, apparently, to use black players, to being the team famed for being where, Jackie Robinson gained much of his fame, as the new movie, “42”, will hopefully show.

…. haven’t seen it yet, but, am interested, as the monument in honour of the black leagues in Philly, is in a very small corner of a park, in a not-so-nice, part of town.

So, the slavery elements, and the historic nature of Philly, well, German Town, Dutch influxes, and of course, The Irish, en masse, have many memorials, statues, and houses preserved, to ensure that their stamp is firmly imprinted on any visitors passport as it were.

Surprised … ???

…. nah … but, in terms of it’s progressive attitude towards race relations, errrm, well, having had a coach ride in Old Town/City, I would have to say that when an Irish guy can tell me that he isn’t so sure about the whole, “Inter-Racial”, thing, but, in the same breath, can tell me how, “Even I find myself thinking on the train, that some black ass would be worth a look”, as it were, one has to wonder how far we have to go !!! Let alone, have we come ?!?

The area of Philly, that has some kind of homage to what the slaves went through, would hardly constitute, in my mind, the level of acknowledgement & recognition of suffering, that, our forefathers/mothers, went through, as black people, but hey, it was the … ” Old Days” … right, ain’t nothing to be carrying a chip about !!!!!

Maybe, if you don’t give a shit about anything other than the, “Bling”, you sporting, or, the amount of pussy/dick, that you can get of different types, regardless of the reasons why it’s becoming available now !!!

Well, the judgements continue, and I was clearly, a most intriguing attraction for the Radisson bar faithful …… for a lot of, seemingly, fear & insecurity driven, reasons, but hey, I have no issue causing a lil’, “Positive Disruption”, unlike the human church mouses running about town, serving the, well to do, mainly white folks, who, owned I believe, 99 of the 100 private condos up in that bitch !!!!!

The other was, YES, owned by black folks, well, at least we’re getting up there right ???

Hmmmm, how bad or good a sign that is, i’m not sure, when, they are mostly welcomed by black faces, who are still, in my view, highly subservient to them.

Now don’t get me wrong, I met a … “Black Woman !”, who showed me a level of that dignified attitude towards her job, regardless of who she would greet and meet, there was a fire that she possessed, that I will eternally be grateful to have felt, so, much love and respect goes to … Ms. Francine !!!

Yes … Ms. Francine !!!!!

Well, i’d happily of had her as my, Miss Daisy, just to be around a black woman, with such, inner fortitude, as I felt from speaking with her, and sharing some of my art with ….

Yes, Ms. Francine, I am still doing it and will always remember your words of encouragement, a la, Lady Gaga, of all people, but, we shall always know why …… !!!!!

Okay, on that note, i’ll leave y’all hanging …..

I have yet to get into the Nitty Gritty of Philly, but, these days, it’s a very free flow that i’m rolling with, as, so much crazy ish is going on all over this world of ours …..

Keep strong people, keep the faith and one thing I will say today …..

Stand up for what you believe in, it is, and will be scary, don’t doubt it, but, if your faith holds righteous values, you will prosper, even if, it doesn’t seem like it, initially ….

Don’t follow, for followings sake, set your trend/standard, and stick to it …..

Money can only do so much for you, your soul cannot be fed by it ….

Bless up, and yes, share that love …..

and cut out all this, English, American, whoever, Stuff ….

…. and accept the path to rising above, and seeing yourself and the rest of us all, as just being ….

“Human”.

One Love ….

Big V
