Too-ings and Goings …. written by Big Virge 13/02/2017

Yes Yes people ……

So, as I sit here watching horses frolicking with each other, here in Barbados, much has been going on over the last couple of months ….

Well, first and foremostly, my debut album has finally dropped, production from Strat Carter & Anthony Lowhar, and that heavy, vocal lyricism, that is synonymous with the name Big Virge ….

The album is called VIRGES’ WORLD … and is available on an adundance of online platforms, but CD Baby is where it was released first ……

Hip Hop styled, but do not confuse what you hear as being that, nope, this is a SPOKEN WORD Album, just with different paces of speech, it’s Poetry.

So, don’t be dismissing, try and give the ish’ a listen, you might be surprised by what you find resides in this poets mind …..

Fresh, Real, Raw …. and built from my core values of honesty, straight talk, Phat beats, and yes, some offensive lyrics, to those who cannot work with Real Talk…..

….. which leads me to Brexit’ and The Trumpster’……

Well, having just returned from a London trip, I can safely say that Brexit has enforced the British drive to create themselves, a breed of Modern Slave, who clearly are only brave, behind polling cards, that define what resides in their hearts, which would seem to be to conform and follow the political whatevers…. ??? …. who seem to be doing, quite nicely thank you, regardless of what Brexit’ has done to the UK’s economy, and the general way that the country runs.

Movements towards a cashless society, less general dealings with people, and more with computers, and systems driven by technology ……

However, with all this tech, to drive in London, has become the complete opposite of what it once was …. Now you have cameras tracking your every move, 20 mile an hour speed limits, in areas once free for the brave to drive at speed, for fun, or simply to get where you needed to, if your were running a little late ….

Work home work, for most …. chasing that pound, even though it doesn’t get you far, unless you’ve got plenty of them, right about now !!!!!

In the space of a few months, the country has changed dramatically, and as a friend suggested to me, in basically 5 years, the populous of London alone, would seem to have doubled !!!!!

Parking is a complete nightmare, and costs an arm and a leg, with restrictions in place, here, there and everywhere ….. !!!!!

It’s pretty crazy, and looks like being a rough old ride, until this Brexit situation gets resolved !

Mainly because of the apparent cost of being the first to start, what may be a trend of countries exiting, what many claim to be a bureaucratic nightmare, being the EU, and it’s money train of freeloading MP’s & MEP’s, who apparently, have been getting fed like fat cats, for quite some time now !!!!

Figures in the Billions, being thrown around, possibly up to 600 Billion, being touted as the cost for Britain’s departure from the EU !!!

Well, who knows, or really cares …. Brexit’ voters ….. ???

Well, i’d say not, when looking at the basic costs of living in the UK right about now !!!!!

Anyways, it is what it is, but America, well, Donald has started as he suggested he would, creating mayhem, executive orders, that are being revoked by the legal system, and just like England, creating difficulties and concerns for companies, whose employees now, are not sure whether they are coming or going, it’s all good fun ….

Well, maybe not fun, but it certainly is a time of much change and as a friend said to me recently, there is a DISTINCT, change in the wind, and time will definitively tell, where it is, the world is now heading, and if the new US Presidents’ initial movements are anything to go by, the blasé attitudes that many have chosen to exhibit, and live by in recent times, are about to be turned upside down …… or are they ???

Well, Mr. Trump has already seen that he can be stumped by those who surround him, as in, congress, the senate, and the same people who seemed to have given him the job, who, when they rally together, are a force that even he, has to respect and bow to, well so far at least …..

This is all, simple proof of the fact that these Presidents are merely puppets for the world to focus on, while the agendas that have long since been discussed as the next wave of change, are being initiated and mobilised …..

Brexit’ and Trump, are diversions for bigger things to be put into place, in my opinion, like the rise of nationalism, from Europe to the US, and the NOT SO, United, United Kingdom … LMAOL

….. and as I read yesterday, South Africas’ ANC, and rival political factions, like the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), are far from finding ways to agree to disagree. There was fighting in the room, as Jacob Zuma attempted to give his, ” State of The Nation ” speech.

Well, how appropriate a title, the, ” State of affairs “, over there, may well be a pre-cursor for much that will occur over the next 18 months or so !!!

Let’s hope not, but hope, like Mr. Obamas … ” Change ” … would seem to have been a ruse, to make people believe that the Political Process, could actually step away from scandal, corruption and war …. and work for the benefit of the masses ….

If Obama did that for you, well, I think you need to wash the sleep out of your eyes and recognise that, as much as we have a larger number of people who are perhaps, less uncomfortable with integration and the rising of one nation, the nationalists like Mr. Trump, and his friends, like Theresa May from the UK, are not about to let that become a trend that will work for Twitter or any other media platform that feeds the masses …..

So indeed, it shall be an interesting 2017, with a great many more ……

Too-ing’s & Goings …….

Well, at least Mr. Zimmerman has been Good for Sumthin’ !!! … written by Big Virge 14/7/2012

The title to this post is because he’s inspired me to write some more, about, my recent visit to the US, and reminded me of much that I heard in the U.S.

…. Not Florida, but, Philadelphia, which according to various stories that I was told, in my interactions, is a state filled with, Police Brutality & Corruption !!!!!

One evening, whilst in company, a woman came into the group and immediately changed the vibe of the gathering, as she spoke about feeling pressured into going to court the next day, regarding an incident, which she proceeded to tell us, from ofcourse, “Her side of the story”, involved her and a young boy, who, she didn’t know, being arrested & searched for drugs, which were not found, as she & the youth had none, only to be dragged out of the squad car, to be then beaten by 7 out of 8 officers, whilst the female officer, officer number 8, stood and watched !!!!!

The BIG problem with this, is that ….

Oh, stupid Mutha fuckers didn’t know that she was pregnant !!!!!

She lost the child !

As the judge initially told them, “This young lady better not be troubled before this gets to court as you are on charges of murder, remember that !!!!!”

The captain of the station where these fukkers were from, personally came to apologise to the woman, who, sadly, in my opinion, was not taking this matter seriously enough, until I and a few other men started to explain to her the gravity of her position, and that, she should be doing everything possible, to not only get financially compensated, but, to use this as an opportunity to expose these officers for their behaviour, so that others would have a level of awareness, if not protection, from such …..

“Po Po’, practices.

Unbelievable, but true, however, it seemed that she was highly fearful of reprisals, beyond the law, by said officers, or their fraternity …. which …. links suitably to, guess who, Mr. Zimmerman !!!

Is it something about the name George that America likes, that means that they can get away with all kinds of wickedness, and pay no price for it ?!?

Zimmerman and Georgie Bush, seem to have got away with murderous acts in the name of ….

“Defence of their territory !”

So, realistically, this … ” Stand Your Ground “, Florida Law, should avail freedom for people, fearing the police, as most people of colour do, to, shoot them without fear of punitive measures from the states judicial system, under the grounds of self-defence … ???

…. or is that, just for, … Fairer-Skinned Folks, as plenty of white folks will be running the, “Ahhh but Zimmerman’s Mexican !!!!”, rhetoric.

It is interesting to me though, having found myself in a neighbourhood, that is predominantly white, in Barbados, how my neighbours, in over a year, have yet to introduce themselves, other than from a very …. ” Safe Distance !!!”

It’s crazy funny to me, or, as Mos Def has said, ” It’s So SERIOUS, i’m Laughing “, because, as much as recent occurrences in this area, suggest a level of need for such neighbourhood watches as per the Zimmerman case, here in Bim. The manner of some of the white folks when first seeing me, even now, does have me now thinking, could I of ended up being shot, if I happened to be walking through here at the wrong time of night by some, “Trigger Happy” ….

” American History X “, wannabe ???

Well, fortunately, hooded garms, aren’t so much of a need here, due to the weather, but, bwoyyyyy, wit some of these, actually, not so secretive, racists, i’m beginning to wonder … ???

Sadly for me though, it has been those of a similar skin tone, who, actually make me glad that I am where I am, due to none of these white folks openly threatening to shoot or rob me, because I apparently, deserve to be !!!!!

Words like those, have though, come from, ” My People ??? “.

…. maybe …. not so much like me … ???

…. but, having been on the receiving end of such talk and attitudes, it isn’t so hard to see why a lot of white people view black people as a threat, and, in many ways, a strain of humanity, that, needs to be kept away from them !!!

However, back to Philly, and let me show you how it can be translated in their actions, which proves their stance to be as f’ckd up, as that of blacks, who feel that, due to another black persons progression, they need to be dragged back to where they seem, happy to be.

I walk in to one of the, Radisson Hotels’ toilets in Philly, on my recent visit, to see a white guy, visibly disturbed by my appearance, but, he relaxed, “A little”, upon seeing that I wasn’t about to rob him … ?!?

…. only to have, two rather merry … (inebriated) … older white guys walk in to see us at the urinals, which then was quickly followed by one of them loudly proclaiming to their white compadre, “Careful he don’t rob you !!!”.

The … “Truth Juice”, had clearly got the better of him, now, I could ofcourse, now be in prison for decapitating his ignorant ass, but, upon looking at the first white guys face, it was as if his eyes were saying,

“Damn it you redneck fuck, I was thinking it, but, you had to go there didn’t ya !?!”.

Who was the worst racist … ???

…. well, debatable, but, my non-reaction, is to retain my freedom, so that I can pass on the FACT, that, such attitudes have never been removed, perhaps because of judicial decisions like this, “Not Guilty”, Zimmerman bullpish !!!!!

I’m gonna cut this one here, as today, on a thread I started, a comment was placed on it by a young white guy, who seemed unabashed in stating that, “He doesn’t care whether Zimmerman is guilty or not, because racism has been placed above the law !”.

… which is a JOKE, in his view.

Well, when I see such attitudes being so brazenly shown, especially by white peeps, it reminds me of these things …..

How many of them … FEAR … Immigration checks, when travelling ?!?

… or, “Stop and Search”, from Po Po ???
… or Beatdowns, to the degree that the young woman I met in Philly, went through ???

…. but, more important than all of these things is this, how many of these, “PC Laws”, are written by … Black People, for the benefit of … Black People, in countries where, “These Laws”, do not relate, ONE IOTA, to the indigenous people of countries like, The …. let me stress ….

UNITED …. States of America …. huh …. ??? ! ???

Even in places like Barbados, as much as there are black figureheads now, their doctrine seems to follow those of the colonialists, who whipped their forefathers into shape.

As I was recently told, about the coastguard here, apparently, when someone calls for help due to difficulties in the waters,

Why would the first question be … ???

“Are they tourists … !???!”

People… People… People… SMH SMH SMH !!!!!

When will we learn to get past being open, and, more important than that,

“Impartial and Logical”, regarding things that, CLEARLY, are not right …. !!!!!

Like Mr. Zimmerman, not being found guilty of … ANYTHING … when he still has the blood of a young mans murder, on his hands ……

Think about it …….

Riots and protests now ….. for what ….. ???

To fuel more need for, Hard-Hitting Policing and law changes that impinge even further on, civil liberties ….

Good luck with that people ….. !!!!!

What a crazy place the U.S, has become, under the guise of … ” Change “, under the Obama administration ….

What a joke !!!!!!!!!
