So, Silent Protest then … Punishment … !!! … written by Big Virge 29/04/2014

Okay, so, it takes a lot to make me wanna blog about anything these days, as most things are just a regurgitation of much, that has gone on before, however, so much has been going on at the moment, that, I figured I should say sumthin’, Big Virge style …..

Well, as the typo i’ve just corrected from Nig Virge, to Big Virge has prompted me, I have to start with the NBA, firstly, the good stuff.

What about this first round of the playoffs huh ….. !!?!!

Overtimes’ … ALL OVER THE PLACE, Miami doing their thing, and cruising through, but, wow, Brooklyn and Toronto, Deron Williams, KG & The Truth & Joe Johnson, in battle with a surprisingly resilient Toronto, good stuff there !!!

San Antonio and Dallas, locked in battle, as some of the old guard of quality players get their zimmer frames charged for another Playoff push, Parker, Duncan, Dirk & Vince Carter, producing varying levels of quality, and my man Ginobli, still shaking and baking, confusing and bemusing with everything from subtle drives to the rim, to, 3 point shooting !!!!!

Now, No Fakers are allowed in the west this year, it seems, The Clippers & Golden State, again, a very interesting matchup, as is the Memphis/Oklahoma draw, KD under some pressure from Zac and Gasol, (being Mark not Pau who = Mr. Gasoft !!!), Chicago, under some, Serious Pressure, from Washington, Indiana, not looking quite as strong as last year, The Hawks now having a chance to close out as they are 3-2 up currently, and we’ve got Houston in a real struggle with Portland !!!!!

This last match-up has been, INCREDIBLE … !!! … in terms of the fact that, 3, yes I said … ” 3 ” … overtime games, have already occurred in this series, and we’re only now at game 5 !!!!!

Simply, crazy runs, incredible comebacks, and somewhere in the mix is a Dwight Howard, now, MAKING, free throws, but, beyond that, not exactly showing the … ” Superman ” … promise of his now, infamous, slam dunk contest win !!!!!

Same ol’ same, essentially, only half, if that, of the, ” Howard Package ” working, which, must be frustrating for Coach Mchale, James Harden and the rest of the Houston team, including, Chandler Parsons, who literally was … ON FIRE … for the 1st half of Game 4, which was as tough a win as Portland have had, in my opinion, thus far !

Parsons, in particular, was doing what many, i’m sure, would suggest Howard should be doing, DOMINATING … !!!!!, which seems to have somehow, left James Harden, finding it difficult to find his game, now that he needs it most !!!

A couple of 30+ performances aside, he has seemed, lacklustre, and, out of sync with his team for most of the series, thus far, however, Lamarcus Aldridge and his Blazers, are somewhat of an enigma.

They have had a strong season, by all accounts, yet, seem to lack the definitive squad, that you look at and fear, but, they have now, put, Serious Fear of DEFEAT, in the minds of The Rockets, who now have a mountain to climb to recover from 3-1 down, with 3 to play !!!

Damian Lillard is growing with every playoff performance, much like Steph Curry & Klay Thompson have done, since last year, but, I think they’ll need more than Batum & Mo Williams to continue, against stronger teams than Houston, but, who knows, so many unknowns, as the playoffs get serious !!!!!

Okay then, the positives over ….

What The Fuck is Donald Sterling on … !?!

… and … “silent protests”, regarding, racist statements made in a … Private Conversation … between, Good ol’ Donald, and his girlfriend, who is apparently, half Mexican and half black, which, SOMEHOW, found it’s way into TMZ’s hands, hmmmmm are you smelling what,” The Virge is Cooking !!?!!”

Yup, that ugly word, ” Racism “, that, certain white folks seem to think we should of forgotten about by now, has reared it’s ugly head, from the Clippers Owner, who has now been banned for life, after being … “Outed”, as some kind of Klansman with a LA Clippers logo on his hood !!!!!

Thus, the rhetoric has been in full flow, from the likes of TNT’s, Inside The NBA panel.

Kenny “The Jet” Smith, seems deeply upset by the revelations about Sterling, while Shaq & Charles Barkley seemed, a little less, angst-filled about it, Barkley, being very quick to essentially point out, that, most of the men at that table, alongside of many, over the last 25 years, be they players, or, members of the media circus that follows the NBA, have contributed to Donald Sterlings wealth, thus, who doesn’t have dirty hands regarding the support of an individual, who, although currently employing, a black coach, and numerous high profile, black players, seems to hold the view that, “Black folks should stay away from his teams games !!!”.

Now, let me just stress, HIS GIRLFRIEND, Vivian Stiviano, aka Maria Vanessa Perez, is the woman who seems to have, SOMEHOW, let her conversation with Mr. Sterling, become public property ???

Things are smelling fishy, she’s his … ” Girlfriend ” … yet, Sterling has 3 children and a wife, whose suing her, due to lavish gifts received from Sterling over the last couple of YEARS … ?!?!?

Now, she seems to be no better than a gold digging’, lil whore, by all accounts, NOT, my opinion, merely speculation, on the basis of Bentleys, Ferrari’s and a Million Dollar duplex, apparently bought for her, by Sterling, so, could this be a devious ploy to get money before what she has … ” Earned ” … is taken from her … ???

Who knows, the conversation is a very strange one, which seems to have her apologising for a variety of things, one being Sterlings attitude towards this picture, that she posted on Instagram with Magic Johnson …. hmmmmm ….

Then the … ” Silent Protest ” … from the Clippers and the show of solidarity, via black socks, armbands etc, a la … John Carlos & Tommie Smith, on the Olympic podium in 1968.

I’ve heard this about black folks before, ” Silent Support “, which in my book, is NO SUPPORT … at all !!!!!

Thus, it has fallen on, relatively new commissioner, Adam Silver, to demand Sterling sell up and pay a fine of a couple of million, which, to a BILLIONAIRE, like Sterling, is pretty much like, a drop in the ocean of pennies, he seems to like spending on a bit of mixed race ass, and, on the black people who serve his financial needs !!!!!

However, the life ban is, well, interesting at best, but, only if you can get past the fact that, at, 80, good ol’ Don, surely ain’t got that long left to be getting anything done for himself, let alone, get to games, to watch his, Beloved Clippers !!!

I believe, at his age, a big screen TV, or, Home Theatre, should suffice for his viewing needs.

Thus, the big affirmation of applause comes for Silver, from players, old and current, as well as the NBA populous.

Meanwhile ……

Dani Alves eats bananas, to combat racism before taking a corner for Barca at Villareals’ ground in Spain !!!!!

I think the quote that has me the most pissed, is that of Ex-England striker, Gary Lineker, who seems to believe, this is the … ” BEST WAY ” … to combat racism …..

to which, i’m like ….. WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT MAN ?!!!?

Maybe, Adam Silver should of made Sterling eat bananas, until whatever Racism rests in him is forced out due to, Internal Banana Combustion …. !!!!!

I’m getting sick of the continued, denial, of basic truth, and defence of individuals, like say, Luis Suarez, by people who seem to think that, having black in their fam’, automatically means, THEY CAN’T POSSIBLY BE RACIST !!!!!

WOW, Okay ….

So, that’s all we need to prove, that, we’re all from Africa, originally, thus, all racism is over !!!!!

Thought most folk with brains, that function, have pretty much accepted the Africa bit, by now !!!!!

Suffice to say, I REALLY, do believe that it’s time to stop all these, “silent protests”, and reliance on the same people who, PROTECT, these racists and liars, until their stupidity, exposes them for others to see !!!!!

Would you trust a black man who robbed you, to take care of money you’d just stolen, because he happens to be a teef too ???

I doubt it !!!!!

So, let’s not get carried away with, happiness, or some sense of vindication, due to punishment for men, like Sterling, who’ve been able to build their wealth and ENJOY IT !!! … when they were relatively young, while the likes of Trayvon, and, a high proportion of young black males, don’t even get to see the latter years of their lives, due to actions of racists, who are smarter than, an old geriatric ass, who happens to have forgotten, the world we now live in, thus, gets duped by, again, a woman who would seem quite happy to be the girlfriend of a … ” Married Man “, who, happens to hold the views of a Klansman, until it comes to getting his tings’ wet, via, whatever hole she decides to open, for her gold digging exploits to pay off !!!!!

I don’t agree that Sterling should be forced to sell anything, as that doesn’t hurt his finances does it, which is clearly where his allegiance lies, to the papes ???

…. but, I think that, the black people who are part of The Clippers organisation, should take a serious look at themselves, and instead of wearing the jerseys, inside out, should either, pool their resources to buy Sterling out, or, do the honourable thing, and leave him and his white compadres to their arena, and to finding success without them.

The US of A, revolves around the Dollar Bill, so, hit these men, where it hurts, and we might see them behave they crotch … !!! … rather than hold such, ignorant views, which they clearly have done, for quite some time, deep inside their minds, and CLEARLY, behind boardroom doors … !!!!!

Now, bring on the B-Ball, and let’s hope the playoffs continue to provide something for the NBA, to be proud to represent, sport and sportsmanship, of the highest standard, that has … NO COLOUR LINES.

One Love y’all …

The V out tie …

Peace & Unity.

Ofcourse we should just … “Tolerate” … A poem written by big Virge 17/1/2006

Some things just, NEED to be, RE-ITERATED, or, better still, pointed out to those with good sight, who, STILL CHOOSE, to play blind ….

This is an old piece, reflective of what was once seen as … Great Britain …

Well, as the leaders of this, ” Great Country “, are quick to remind the world of their, “Close Ties”, to America, one would have to wonder how many owners/managers of sports teams, now dominated, in many cases, by, black players …. hold attitudes that are just like the current, hot name in the NBA, who is sadly …. NOT, some fresh talented individual, but the OLD, WRINKLY, Jewish Owner, of the LA Clippers …. Donald Sterling …. !!!!!!

Well, it would seem that, quite a few, Black NBA stars, and managers, “Tolerate”, the likes of Sterling, and his ilk !!!!!

Well, Them, He, and ALL the … Smart-Mouthed, English bwoys, who like to tell men like me to let things go, when it comes to our abuse, mis-treatment & deaths, at the hands of their white brothers …..

They should try to ….. “Tolerate” … THIS … !!!!!

London … has been said …
in a …. ” City Guide ” ….

to be a …

PLACE TO SEE … !!!!!

but …..
You should … ” Recognise ” …

that … prices are … HIGH … !!!
Even for … ” A Short ” … train ride … !!!

EVERYONE … can expect … !!!
to see …. ” Tolerance ” …. !!!!!!!!

Well …….

There are …
Quite a few ways … !!!
To Define … TOLERATE … !!!!!

It can mean …

” ENDURE ” … ” PERMIT ” …
and … ” ALLOW TO EXIST ” …

Further definitions … INCLUDE …

to …..

” Allow to be practised,
without interference,
or, molestation ! ”

We’d …
“better not mention” …

School education …
or problems caused …
because of … “Racism” …

” Some ” …
DO … ” Tolerate ” …

A … ” Foreign Face ” …
but … NOT … Always …
in … ” Respectful Ways ” … !!!

Some Racists … PRETEND …
That we’re … ALL FRIENDS … !?!

But …..
Would … NEVER …
Let … ” A Foreigner ” …

… In Their Bed … !!!!!

If words like those …
cause you …. OFFENCE …. !!!

Try to …
” TOLERATE MATE ” … !!!!!

because ….
I’ve got …. MORE …. !!!
I …. NEED TO SAY …. !!!!!

I Don’t … EXIST … !!!!!
for you to … ” Sit ” …
and just … ” Permit ” …

MY RIGHT … to live … !?!
and …. TOLERATE ….
The things … I say … ?!?

Who told you … ?
to think … THAT WAY … !?!

” So Many ” …. HATE …. !!!
A … ” Darkened Face ” …
and seem to … ” Think ” …
That’s …. NO DISGRACE …. ?!!!?

and is ….. OKAY …… !?!

How can this be … ?
Even … TODAY … !?!?!

From …..

” New Age Slaves ” ….
to …. Yesteryear ….

” MANY BLACKS ” ….
have lived … ” IN FEAR ” … !!!!!
of facing …. ATTACKS …. !!!
that … may bring … TEARS … ?!!!?

When …
MURDERS come …

We Hear …. ” OH DEAR … !!! ”

while words we say …
are … QUICKLY CLAIMED … !!!

to …

” Deserve a place,
penned in, and, caged ! ”

Where ….
We’re … THEN TOLD …

“You’re going to pay !
Your wordplay we,
won’t tolerate !”

South Africans … KNOW …
how … THAT ONE … goes … !!!!!

Mandela was … sent …
To Clearly … ” ROT ” …

DEEP INSIDE … !!!!!! …
A … ” Prison Hole ” … !!!!!

” London ” … can be …
REALLY … COLD … !!!!!!!!

and CLEARLY has …
NO STREETS … of gold … !!!

Unless you … ENTERTAIN …
The … ” Corporate Fold ” …

Well ….
Wherever I go …. !!!

I make it … KNOWN … !!!
by the way I … ” Move ” …

I … ” Tolerate ” … views …

Who … Clearly choose …
to … see me as …
” A HUMAN ” … too … !!! …

Now …
Governments’ … view …

… ZERO TOLERANCE … !!!!!

is the … ” Best Defence ” … !!!
against … ” Terrorist Sects ” …

Whose words … THEY CLAIM … !!!

Clearly suggest …
A Need for them …
to make … Violent Acts …

But Surely … This …
will cause … Problems … ?!?
when … INNOCENT MEN …
become … ” Victims ” …
of …. ” False Arrest ” ….
and then are … “KEPT” …
for … ” PUNISHMENT ” …
and … ” Torture til’ ” …

They’re almost … DEAD … !!!!!

They say … ” Tolerate ” …
but then … ” DETAIN ” … ?!?

Those whose words …

TEMPERS … Won’t Flare … !?!

The air … We Breathe …
WE ALL … should … ” Share ” … !!!!!

I Hope …. You People ….
are …. PREPARED …. !?!?!?!

because …
” Hatred ” … now …
is climbing … Stairs … !!!

Words like … THOSE …
Aren’t meant to … ” Scare ” … !!!

But …. IGNORANCE ….
may take you … ” There ” … ?

” To ” …. THAT PLACE ….
That’s … ” NOT SO GREAT ” … !!!!!

So …. Tolerate …
or … ” Accommodate ” … ?!?

NEITHER … folks …
and that’s … NO JOKE … !!!

” WELCOME’S ” … The word …
That Gets …. ” MY VOTE ” …. !!!

Try … ” Welcoming ” … !!!

with … Guns in Palms … !!!!

” Harmony ” …
Breeds … ENERGIES …
That … May just bring … ?
