” What Does It REALLY, Mean To You … ?!? ” Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, what does one write about in this world currently eh people ???

Well of course, the political realm has an abundance of disturbing movements, that have quite a few people getting, well …..

…. as irate as people get these days, in some online petition, or in some public display of disrespect, for those who are supposedly, representing their best interests.

Not so much huh folks …..

Donald continues to wage war with himself presumably, which then funnels it’s way down to his minions, and they in turn are turning against the very man who, when they were being paid by and kept in his fold, didn’t seem to have a negative word to say about their President …..

Hmmm, let me move on …………

So of course, here in Bim’, people are awaiting the election that many seem to hope, will remove Good old Freundel, for what, sorry, who … ???

…. who knows …. ???

…. but the corruption discussion never seems to be too far away from Bajan Lips, which leads me those, sinking ships ….

or boats, like The Windrush ….

Uh Hmmm …. Excuse me ….

EMPIRE Windrush’ … !!!!!

…. whose occupants on that famed day of June 22nd, 1948, seem to have been treated as, hmmm, how does the saying go, ” less than being human “, by the Home Office, under Theresa May’s guidance !!!

Now this evening, I heard some interesting rhetoric, via The Beeb’, that showed how mistakes were made, even in the accusations being levelled.

Ol’ JC …. Mr. Corbyn, for those who don’t know, attacked The Prime Minister for being involved in the decision to basically discard the papers of those who needed them, to verify their legitimacy of becoming a fully fledged, British Citizen !!!!

SHOCK HORROR !!!!

The British treating black people like the dirt of the shoes, that they’ve been wearing, as they tread through shit ….. !!!!!

Never …. ???

” No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs “, signs ….

…. being just one of the things these same migrants, (plus a few stowaways) from the Caribbean, had to face, upon arriving in the, let’s not forget, ” Motherland “, that was to show appreciation for Caribbean Peoples’ loyalty to Her Majesty, etcetera etcetera …

Blah Blah Blah ….

So now people are getting on poor ol’ Theresas’, Bruk’ Down back, give the woman a break, because the apparent truth is that the decision to do this heinous thing, was actually taken under the Labour Government that preceded the Tories …. ???

Huh .. rewind … !!!!!

The Labour, Leftist, Socialist, equality for all, supporters, would sanction such an act ???

NEVER …. !?!

Could this possibly mean that an actual change of national leadership ….

DOESN’T … actually represent change …. ?!?

I hate to say it, but didn’t Donald say something similar in regards to Hilary getting into power …..

One thing people have to admit is that President Trump, has certainly done things differently, even to The Bushes, who lost one of theirs this month.

Well, we live, we die, it is what it is, but I was thinking she deserves some thanks for giving us Jeb and GW, I mean hey, at least she didn’t give us Donald eh ???

It’s just madness, plain and simple, but at the end of this, there are people who have lost jobs, people who are being denied health care in their old age, people being separated from their families, the threat of deportation for others, which has of course, resulted in an apology coming from the beleaguered PM, to Caribbean Leaders.

One of whom being, Jamaica PM, Andrew Holness, who basically, immediately accepted her apology on behalf of Jamaica, saying that he believes, ” The Right Thing is being done at this time ! “.

The less said about that response, the better for me I guess, but it’s all good again, now the mistake … I Repeat …. MISTAKE ….. has been acknowledged, and will be rectified.

I mean, how do you do that though, really ???

Well, i’ll leave you to ponder that …..

Finally, leading to the piece attached to this post, Cuba has finally removed the Castro name from it’s offices of power, well, pushed it to the side, whilst new leader, Miguel Diaz Canel takes charge.

So, what does this mean for Cuba, and in particular it’s US Relations, well, it’s clear that the tight strings that were in place, have already been loosened somewhat by Raul, his predecessor.

However, President Trump is hardly likely to build on what B.O. O’Boomer, started, but who knows ?

He seems very changeable currently, from North Korea to Russia, but the Russia / Syria madness, has brought the old Trumpster’, out to play, along with Theresa May, The French, and anyone else who cares to wage war on Mr. Putin, President Assad, and chemical warfare that has been killing volumes in Syria ….

So ….

Who gave the initial order to use these weapons ?

Are there even, chemical weapons in Syria ? (Humour Me …)

Did The Syrians engineer them ?

Did Russia ?

Should anyone else interfere … ???
… and therein lies the BIG QUESTION ???

This seems to be a civil war, and a revolt against Assad, who seems have to earned the ire of The Brits, which in turn, leads to Trump etcetera etcetera, you get where it’s going ….

Well if you don’t, don’t worry, I think most people who, at least have, a sense of the woes of the world, have just about had their fill of it, and are just focussing on their lives and their loved ones.

Fair enough ….

However, turning a blind eye to these things is unwise in my opinion, because, small as they may be for most, revolutions of all kinds are occurring, just look at Starbucks and Applebies, for ridiculous examples …..

Hardly the type of revolution, that I think the world needs, but hey, it’s a start, so as I finish this post, i’ll leave with this question, as you click play and take a listen ….. think on this ……

In a world so CLEARLY, Corrupted and filled with injustices …..
If you had to start one …..

What Does It REALLY, mean to you ?

” 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 ….

” Hardcore ” … Prod by Strat Carter (Explicit)

Okay so, back to some music from Virges’ World ….

and somehow, when applying these words to the world at large, as it’s currently running ….

Well, Mr. Trump is …. AS EVER, going on in a Hardcore Manner, in terms of his language, and attacks, on everyone from Steph Curry, to Colin Kaepernick, and those who’ve suddenly realised that maybe just maybe, Colin has a point !

It’s easy to jump on the bandwagon when a man of The Presidents’ ilk, runs some Extraordinarily, INFLAMMATORY Language, and attitudes in the public domain, as North Korea’s leadership would certainly attest to.

As for the weather, well if you haven’t been paying attention, HARDCORE Damage has been wreaked by Hurricane after Hurricane, and yes, the region of the Caribbean is still in the midst of them, so, don’t think that it’s all good as we leave what is deemed as being, the Hurricane Season.

A little more humility and thought, rather than, hardcore reactions …..
might just be the order of the day, for a while, but in the meantime, My Hardcore vibes, with the handy work on production of Mr. Strat Carter, are a little less disturbing, if, none the less worthy of the title …..

“Racism Pon’ TV” … A poem written by Debronique Ellis

All i’m gonna say is, WOW, couldn’t of put it together better, myself !!!
More power to Ms. Ellis !!!

Racism pon TV

Racism, what is it?
Is it to judge a man by the thinness or the thickness of his lips,
Di shape a him nose, di style a him clothes?
How can it be, that my blackness or my brownness or my whiteness
determines me, my personality?
Well you tell me! You di man pon di TV!
Oh! yuh think I didn’t see!?
because you try to hide and disguise while YOU, dear sir, patronize!
And somehow manage to pass di message to di unsuspecting minds!
Minds that cannot recognize the signs, di discreetly degrading lines
dat these actors are paid to say. Why do dis when you say, all men are equal?

Lies! This is not wat you truly believe!
Yuh too lie man! Stop deceive!
If wi all equal den why? Why portray me di black man as di bad guy?
Why portray him di Chinese as di smart guy?
Why yuh mek it look like seh she di Indian nuh have nuh common sense,
And seh you di white man, must control all di dollars and cents?

Racism what is it? Is it to judge a man by di texture a him hair,
him skin colour black, white or fair? Yes! But check dis:
di bigga heads dem all know dis,
Suh dem wont set up di media by being what we call ‘racist’, no!
Dem do it discreetly, dem use subtlety, all in the name of entertainment.
And wi buy dis, disdainful arrangement!?
Pon di tv we are being stereotyped, marginalized, categorized by our race and ethnicity.
Maybe not openly and directly,
But it is there, and if yuh smart or observant yuh will become aware.
Aware that di tv many times portray you and me as:
Di theifin’ criminal black or Hispanic bwoy!
Di Chinese weh can only own a restaurant or hack a computer!
Di Indian weh own a grocery store!
And di white man, inna him white collar,
stepping out wid him briefcase
Looking so dapper!

Look pon all dis, yuh eva notice, say in a horror movie wen a man fi dead,
Is always di black guy?!
Yes man, di white man have to survive!
“Oh, but this is just the plot of the movie and surely not racism.” Why?
“Because it’s not degrading or alluding to a race being inferior.” Shut up!
And stop di pretence! Cause me di black man, di Chinese man, all a wi have sense!
Wah mek di Indian caan own di multi-million dollar corporation? Or run out and save
di white man from a dangerous situation? No…..
Him nuh superior enough!
him nuh light-skinned enough!

This could just be my ism…. or di definition of racism!

Suh racism, what is it? Check yuh dictionary or guh turn on yuh t.v!

What are we descending into … huh … ?!? … written by Big Virge 29/8/2013

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-23882735

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2401788/Sex-tourism-Meet-middle-aged-middle-class-women-Britains-female-sex-tourists.html

Okay people, well, I try, these days, not to write about news stories, because so much is contrived, twisted, and bent out of shape, that, it fuels the type of anger in me, that I don’t like to feel or see, but, God Fucking Damnit Man …. !!!!!!!

What the fuck is this shit … I mean … REALLY !!!?!!!

The judge, (Todd Baugh), in this, Montana, 30 day sentencing of a KNOWN … predator, whose victim, is now dead, having committed suicide, is truly, one of the most disturbing indictments of the judicial system in America !!!!!

I think most decent people, are still in shock over Trayvon, but, this has to be one of the most Ridiculous, firstly, and secondly, Disgraceful judgements, in recent times.

I mean, I still think those involved in the initial Stephen Lawrence, murder trial should be, locked away, with no key … !!!!!

…. but, this judge, as far as i’m concerned, must be buddies with this sick rapist & paedophile, Stacy Rambold, or, must be part of one of these rings of sexual predators, that seem to be surfacing, more and more !!!!!

Rolf Harris today, with recent evidence, which seemingly, proves his continual predatory nature, which may well have been running for the 50 or so years he’s been in entertainment, around children !!!!!

Seriously WRONG ….

But ladies, as terrible as the suicide & prior molestation of 14 Year old Cherice Moralez, clearly is … !!!!!

I’m also going to comment on, the second news article, regarding sexual encounters, that, white girls, seemingly, from England/Britain, are engaging in, with the local black, ‘bumsters’ in Gambia, ‘Rastitutes’ or ‘beach boys’ in the Caribbean and ‘sanky pankies’ in the Dominican Republic.

Well, what a surprise …. NOT !!!!!

I have been saying this for years, and now, YOU … White Boys know, if you were in denial before, that, unfortunately, these women who you thought, had some, ” Genuine Love “, for you, and your kind, have probably been, loving the idea of some, let’s say, darker meat, from before you even put rings on their fingers, Stupid Motha Fucka’s … !!!!!

….. but, as the article, and men like me, have been saying for years, it’s the pressure of peers, racism, within their families and friends, that has been stopping them, that’s all !!!

Which, BTW … I don’t see as cool, because what does that really say about these women huh … ??? …. but anyway ….

It’s all different now though, right ???

….. all these pretty, fair-skinned, brothers and sisters, who are products of inter-racial relationships, have gotten into the spotlight, opening doors for the likes of the new brigade of … “Dark Skin Sexy”, Idris Elba, etc,

So, now …..

Oh, rather than just, deal on the REAL ….. !!!!!

Oh No …..

Divorcees with the money they’ve done taken from these white men, are now spending that hard earned cash, (Once again …. NOT !!!!), to purchase ….

NOT on ….

Some DECENT …. Dark Flesh …. ??!??

…. but the … BEACH BUMS and such, to, “Love Them Up !!!”, because ofcourse, now that they’re old and shrivelled up, it’s okay to give a black man some, because, even the desperate old white bwoys won’t touch all yuh, with the, ” Proverbial Barge Pole !!!!! “, anymore.

Ahhhh, but, impoverished black males, who would rather sell some dick, than, educate themselves, so that they can, at least play, on an even playing field, are now targets for what …. ” Holiday Romances ” ….. Yeah alright girls …. !!!!!!

….. STRAIGHT UP … PROSTITUTION, is what it is … !!!!!

….. but, having established that, many of these women, have been, “Prostituting themselves”, for the security of the, ” White Sheet Klan Man “, for the duration of, long relationships and marriages with children … !!!!!

….. it is indeed, a very steady descent into debauchery and sadly, in the case of the judge and the teacher involved, in the aforementioned rape case, a lack of any kind of RESPECT, for the innocence of youth, in young women, and, RESPECT, on any level, for women, who have clearly lied & denied themselves the very thing, that, they claimed not to be interested in, whilst, young, fit and healthy looking ?!?

As i’ve said before, old foolish wrinkled pussy, can keep their stinking cuntholes from being around me, unless you’ve been dealing with my tings’ … Fa Time !!!!!

…. otherwise, form an orderly line, and face the kind of inspection and rejection, that you’ve been stupidly, dishing out to men of substance, for years !!!!!

It is an awful situation that I think the relationship realm now finds itself in, where young women are being abused before they get a chance to GROW, and learn about themselves, but, on the flip side ….

…. What & Who, have many women, “Chosen”, to lie down with, that, when all becomes transparent, proves them to be worthy of little more, than the treatment and attitudes of the new breed of black studs, that now play, such a huge part in the tourism business of African and Caribbean Countries !?!?!?

I feel so saddened by it, that, once again ….

“It’s so serious, i’m f’ing laughing …. !!!!!”

However, I cannot end this without STRESSING, that I, DO NOT, condone any such behaviour, as exhibited, in the two stories posted !!!!!

Violence or molestation of any kind, towards women, is a NO NO !!!!!

Fellas, grow some balls, and learn to use the, ” Big Ball “, inside your heads, but, as said…..

Ladies, stop with all this bullshit you be pushing, about men, you do … or … don’t like,

Especially, when you’re young, because …

“All that glitters, is not gold, especially when, deep down you know ….
You want a sumthin’ DARKER … filling up your hole !!!!!”

Yeah, it sounds cold ….

But it’s a … “Cold World” …. which shows …. sadly ….

What we are now … ” Descending Into ” … !!!!!

The Service Levels of Today …. via …. Liat Airways !!!!! … ” SMH ?!? “

Okay, well, as a man raised inna England, who has now experienced West Indian service, Bajan style, for about a year now, this is NOT, AT ALL, Surprising ….

However, a quick dig at an English Company, that has shown me where much of these attitudes now stem from ….

F’ing Banks man … !!!!!

If y’all looking at these f’ing monkey cunt, Halifax Bank, adverts, over the last few years with their, condescending use of this, ” Black Mister Magoo “, character, to indicate how warm, friendly and helpful they are ….

DON’T BE FOOLED … !!!!!

They are as arrogant, obnoxious and fast, to run by their own rules, when you don’t happen to fit into how they like to do things, even when you have explained the issue and why it’s occurred ….

Much like … ah yes …. “LIAT” … !!!!!

Who do they think they are, issuing challenges to the likes of Virgin … ???

Good luck with that, YOU FUKWITS !!!!!

Why do so many people in these islands, think that, ” Wrong & Strong “, is the way to go … ???

Annnndddd … THEY REALLY be … Believing their own, “Pish” ??!??

I believe that there are people here in the West Indies, who know & recognise the value of GOOD SERVICE & humility in the face of … INEPT Practises & Thinking ….

….. but, WHERE THE FUCK ARE THEY !!!!!

Liat needs to go, suck pon a lime …. !!!!!
