“Public Order” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Okay so, this weeks post covers a number of things, however, as civil unrest and tensions continue to surface globally, I think it’s an appropriate time to reflect on what, Public Order means, and what it may stand for, as time goes on.

The yute’s are continuing to do their do in England, and now government employees are being stabbed as well, as has happened this week in Westminster !

However, it seems that police are now facing, the kind of mistreatments, that they have been dealing out to people for years !

Maybe not with machetes, or cars, but, what they have done with truncheons and guns, equates to much that has broken many families hearts !

So, yup, the machete attack in Leyton, on a policeman by a 50 year old …

YES FIFTY, must certainly be disturbing a few police nerves !?!

It also says much about the level of contempt, that many seem to now be developing towards the good ol’ police, which has brought about a police death this week.

The Boris Johnson, knee jerk reaction, has of course been to state an increase in policing numbers, and what seems to be a 5 point plan to reduce the increasing crime problem in England, which will of course, require, increased levels of …

… “ Stop & Search “ …

What a surprise ?!?

Yawn ….. NOT ….. !!!!!

Then, there is the suggestion that attack’s on parents by children, is on the increase, and just to put things in perspective regarding murder rates, Cape Town has recently been assessed to be having 8 murders EVERY DAY, yes EIGHT !!!

So, when it comes to UK Youth, if you create laws that hinder parents abilities to discipline their own children, again, it’s no surprise that we now have a generation of youth, who, rarely show any respect to anyone, let alone those older than them !!!

Talking of respect, or the current, lack thereof, three stories that indicate just how disrespectful people are becoming. The first being the alleged, Eric Trump assault, where he was spat upon by a restaurant employee !

Then, how about the Indian man, who, due to being disappointed at not getting a Jaguar for his birthday, decided to push the BMW, he did get, into a river !?!

Spoilt much …. ?!?

The third has to be the most disturbing, where a restaurant employee in Paris, has been shot by a customer, who was unhappy at the length of time it took for him to get served ?!?

Just CRAZY … !!!?!!!

However, in this modern world, the powers that be, can’t seriously complain about beds that they have happily made, that were made, incredibly injudiciously, which cannot be disassociated from the type of behaviour that is now being displayed, by more and more people these days !

It’s just crazy, the lack of respect for life, that seems to reside in a lot of folks now, another example of which, has been the burning of Nathalie Crichlow, here in Barbados !!!

Now, although the Barbados Police Force, are trying to say there is no evidence of foul play, it doesn’t exactly seem like an electrical fault is simply, what caused her death ???

If this is to do with a relationship, it’s clear that men need to chill the fuck out, when it comes to women and their children, because it’s just, cowardly weakness, that many are exhibiting, when problems arise with the ladies these days !!!

Talking of children, it seems that these Europeans, seem to have REAL PROBLEMS with recognising how to deal with young people ?

Paedophiles seem to be all over Europe, with Denmark now being exposed for an extensive period of unchecked, child abuse, within their institutions for young people, to the extent where the current PM has felt the need to make a public apology to many of the victims, who made clear, that the effects of this, disgusting treatment of minors, extends way beyond their youth !!!

Something that should be SERIOUSLY considered, when these sick individuals get caught, and are sentenced.

However, the apology seems to have come from the fact that police, as well as government departments, seem to have dealt more, in PROTECTING, these child abusers !?!?!

A disturbing part of this story is that there are allegations of children being given LSD, to stop them bed wetting, by a former psychiatrist and Danish MP, Bjorn Elmquist ?!!!?

SICK INDEED … !!!!!!!!!!!!

As is President Trumps claim that, Colin Kaepernick should be re-hired by an NFL Team ….

If he’s … GOOD ENOUGH … ?!?

I think he probably means, REPENTANT or … White Enough, good luck with that Mr. President ?!?

The final stories that prove that there is not only, a lack of order being shown by members of the public these days, but, also in many places where governance is sparking tensions. As the Hong Kong protests, and the Kashmir dispute between Pakistan & India show.

A dispute which has again, re-ignited tensions, that should have surely been resolved by now, once and for all !!!

These though, notably, are regions that have both had, British Colonialism be a part of their respective histories !!!!

These days it’s clear that order, in terms of people’s choices and behaviour, is becoming less and less important ….

I am no Rasta, however, recognise the value of placing order, high on the list of ones personal priorities, to maintain balance within our existence.

However, this weeks piece questions these same institutions, who have proven themselves to lack any kind of order, from children to economics, to suicide watches for prisoners like Epstein, which leads me to policing, and this weeks piece ….

A serious assessment of the plans that I think are likely to, soon affect millions of people globally, when it comes to …..

A Most Eventful Week … written by Big Virge 28/7/2013

Indeed, it has been a very interesting week for me, last Saturday was cool and chilled, but, it takes days to recognise that a simple thing like, falling from a hammock, that wasn’t that high of the ground, for a man my size, can still be quite the damaging thing !!!

I may have been fighting a flu type strain that seems to be in the island at the moment, but, it was the days ensuing, that showed me, that, I may have shaken my spine, neck, and head into places that they shouldn’t of been, so, yup, bit of a rough week, physically, which, culminated in my being in an accident on Thursday afternoon on the Worthing Coast Road, where a man who, apparently, doesn’t live here, decided to drive into the side of my ride, without really giving a damn !!!

Try paying attention my man !!!!!!!!

The fact that he was driving his sisters’ car, says it all really, meantime, I have man trying to get into some kind of war of words with me, due to my explaining that his new love is not in my list of cool peeps, as are many of the collective who surround her.

So, rather than accept that, okay, he can’t do anything about it, he felt the need to embark upon, what I deem to be some kind of threat, which was indicating that, oh, I shouldn’t talk about his woman like that, as in his opinion, she is the best thing since slice bread to walk the f’ing earth !!!

I mean, good for you man, but, recognise, my opinion, i’m entitled to … !!!

…. and, more importantly, I am not gonna do like most people do, and come round them playing that all is cool, when it isn’t, but, this would seem to be the Bajan way, lie to keep up f’ing appearances !!!!!

Why exactly … ???

Bajans, like their English Masters, have become great exponents of the facade/veneer of love and tolerance, but tolerance, as i’ve written about, means, allow to exist !!!

My views, opinions, require no-ones’, “allowance”, of them, they are what they are regardless.

I’ve spoken about, “Manbitch”, behaviour, for some time now, and just because a girl/woman is sucking my balls, doesn’t mean she’s above being criticised, and, fellas, here’s a hint for you, they tend to respect you more, when you are like that, rather than filling up their heads with this idea that they are the sun, moon, stars and everything else ???!!!???

Why, well, because that’s just NOT TRUE !!!

Anyway, I got to the end of the week in fair shape, having been in Police Stations, being told stuff like, ” Calm down, you’re being aggressive ! “, upon explaining that i’d merely come in, due to being asked ….

It would seem that the US and UK style of policing, is reaching the Bajan fold, however, cool and calm prevails, with men who clearly feel that their uniform makes them into some form of god ???

How they can be so blinkered in their vision of themselves, is really beyond me, but, if police across the world are looking at the US and England, no wonder they think that they can, not only talk to people how they want, but, can get away with what they want !!!

NOT COOL !!!

However, what was cool was a very different kind of chat I had with a Bajan Man, when I was in a place getting some bits done.

Now, this man advised me early on, that his grandfather was white, now, incredibly, a couple of generations down, he’s black, maybe not dark like me, but he’s no Obama shade, he is what I define as being a black man, just goes to show you how we are all interbred, at some level, and are perhaps, closer to each other, than all these separatist ideals would have us believe.

Now, on that note, the conversation started on, White Barbados, well, he was quick to state how, white barbadians are indeed, some of the most, arrogant, obnoxious, ignorant people upon this, now, seemingly, god-forsaken planet, full of lies, deceit, and actually, everything but the superiority they like to try to present as being their position.

He further explained to me that in his experiences here, he’s heard white tourists speak on the disgust they have felt, in being associated purely by their colour, to these white Bajans, who seem to feel that even today, they are not to be challenged, questioned, or, worse still, served after black people, at any time !

We then got very deep into the psyche of black bajans, he was quick to level his disgust at the poor levels of service that he sees bajans giving to tourists and ofcourse to black tourists, who, you’d of thought, they’d at least be civil to.

He then explained that he knows what eating three crackers for the day is like, he knows poverty, but, would not allow that to stop him being civil, polite and helpful to anyone needing help from him, especially now that he works, and deals with all sorts of people within his work.

He and I got into the very ideal of the world being in, as his stated, an upside down state of, ” Demonic Madness !!! “.

A very strong term, but, in all honesty, with people dying in more and more vindictive, vicious and brutal ways, it’s hard to dispute, with peoples’ general treatment of each other, seemingly descending, into some, Neanderthal like, grunting, demanding type of communication.

He has children, but was quick to state that he felt me to be a better man than he, for not bringing children into this time, he also stated that keeping out of peoples’ business is an even smarter move, especially here, because as with the aforementioned man, in this post, Bajans don’t seem to be able to accept that you’re here, but, feel happier living without being around them too much, as if they are perfect, and ultimately, honest people to deal with.

He also spoke about the, “timid”, nature of Bajans, relating it to the impoverished living that many have experienced, through multiple generations.

Well, when you study the fact that, other than people like Bernie Grant (RIP) in the UK, very few black people, be they artists or otherwise, are famed for being that individual to have spoken out against the huge levels of institutional racism that is in full effect, to this day, in England, I confirmed to him that, the colonial effect of slavery & the beautiful crafting of mind control that the “Windrush Immigrants”, in England, were then indoctrinated into, has now ensured the legacy, that, as black people, around white folks, we are to be seen occasionally, but definitely, not to be heard.

This, in my view, has much relation to the timid nature of not just black people here, but, all over the world, in many cases.

We spoke about the street mentality black men, who don’t want to do anything, yet, expect everything but the shirt off, “YOUR BACK”, especially from those of us who have worked and earned a little something for themselves, which he stated as being, one of the most painful things to accept about many young bajan men, the disrespect of our own people.

As elder men have explained to me over the years, it is sad, but TRUE, and as the saying goes, when shit hits the fan, they are quick to turn …

NO, not on their oppressors, but, on those who they feel, for some reason, are lesser than them for taking shit from these people, to ensure that you can provide and educate your family and offspring to live in a vein that avails, some sense of parity, if not, financially, intellectually & spiritually.

Funny how so few black folks seem to feel that way about Mr. Obama ???

Anyway, this level of existence makes you into a target, as you shouldn’t have it, because you must have sold out to have something in … “Their world” …. ???

… which doesn’t compute, because some of us have stood firm in offices and on building sites, when faced with ignorance, racism, and denial of pay that white counterparts receive, purely because of the fact that they are white !!!

I dare them street/beach man to try it for a month and see how easy it is, PUNKS !!!!!

IT is a tough world for a black individual whatever level of society you choose to embrace, but, they can’t see that, because their so caught up in their own bullchit, and then feel that they have the right to take from you, when you have worked and struggled and battled your wish to just go into work sometimes, and start letting off on anybody of fairer skin than you !!!!!

The fact is that when you walk out of their den, unscathed, they’d better fucking believe, that’s quite an achievement, because many have failed, because they couldn’t control their tempers or mouths !!!!!

This brings me back to white bajans, who do seem to have that vibe about them, that we black folk, should not have the cheek to talk back to them about anything ….???

Sorry, are we in the fing 1800’s or something, Is Trayvon Martin and the likes of Stephen Lawrence subject matter, stuff that can’t now be thrown up in their face like,

“Just remember, don’t make the mistake of thinking you can treat me like them ?!?”

It would seem not …. but suffice to say, I deal with one, who is my landlord, who is I think, playing at being, one of the new age, slick white boys, but, only when money is being paid to him, it is interesting to study how they are around stronger black men, and then even more interesting to see the types of black people who work for them, and then, the pull they have in various levels of society, where their family members work, and who, in the event of something needing to be resorted, they can call upon.

All this from a 15 minute conversation with a man who did not see me as anything other than being another black male, who ended up in conversation with him, while he provided a service for me.

It is thankfully, individuals like him that keep the faith in men like me alive … !!!!!

Nuff Respect Papa !!!!!

Indeed, i’ll end this post with this line ….

As crazy as this week has been …..

It has proven to be ….

” A blessing in disguise ! ”

Enjoy your week people !!!

I hope to … Finally … get inside the Kensington Oval to enjoy some 20/20 this week ….

Many Thanks for the hook up T

One.
