” Balance ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes Folks, so what’s been occurring, or should that be RECURRING !?!

Brexit’ … !!!!!

Trump Administration resignations, and of course, allegations of inappropriate behaviour towards women and children, from charities like Oxfam, to the likes of Bill Cosby, who the system, amongst a plethora of others, have finally collared, for his indiscretions against at least one of his many accusers.

The other news that seems to be a recurrent thing of recent times, is the volume of natural phenomena, wreaking havoc across the globe !

There has been loss of life in quite a few places, as a result of Typhoons, Hurricanes and flooding, here, there and pretty much everywhere, from here in Barbados, where the south coast, recently took a pounding, to mudslides in Uganda, that have taken at least 40 lives !

Then, we of course have the Florida situation, where Hurricane Michael did it’s thing, ripping through Mexico beach, and Panama City, leaving at least 30 dead, and a considerable amount still unaccounted for !

Indonesia too, taking a literal pounding from a Tsunami and Earthquake that has sadly taken the lives of many children, and hundreds of people. Mass burials and a recovery that is proving to be very difficult, due to poor levels of communication availability, and issues with aid getting to those it needs to reach, very sad and difficult times for the people of Indonesia !

Hurricane Leslie has managed to cause flooding in Portugal, and Spain, and even Wales has been flooded, due to Storm Callum !

It’s crazy to see so much imbalance in the world, nature is one thing, but when people are being accused, left right and centre, of everything from harassment to rape …

Without CLEAR Proof …

One has to wonder where the balance is, in this world now.

It’s a crazy time, but hey, if you’re not falling victim to any of these things, you’re okay right, well, i’d rather see less of these issues, and more balance in peoples assessment of things, especially, all this apparent misogyny, and abuse of the ladies.

I mean, now Cristiano Renaldo is being accused too, I guess the #MeToo Movement may have an alternate strain soon, where men are saying, well damnit, I’ve been accused too !!!!!

Whatever happened to Kevin Spacey eh ???

Isn’t Jail somewhere that he should face, instead of being supported by the likes of Dame Judi Dench ?!?

… and how has Brett Kavanaugh managed to get to be on the Supreme Court in the US, even with the same type of accusations as Bill and numerous others uh … ?!?

The scales don’t seem to be so balanced when it comes to President Trump and his cronies eh … ???

The President can get away with calling poor ol’ Stormy D, ” Horseface ” … having won the lawsuit she filed against him for defamation ???

She may have to balance herself on her back, just a bit more, to pay the Presidents legal expenses !!!

My point being, that it truly seems to be a world that is finding more ways to imbalance itself, than to find some balance that enables us to all be clear on what’s okay or not, when it comes to the realms of what we say, and, how we say things to each other.

Truly CRAZY, so I think this month, i’ll share some views on Balance, or the lack thereof, in people these days …..

So, my last words for this post are simply these …

STAY BALANCED Folks …. before you sink your boat !!!

And Now, the Fun Times Begin…. written by Big Virge … 10/11/2016

So, as expected, a week of upsets and surprises has now been completed by Donald J Trump, winning the US Election over Hilary Clinton … !!!!!

So, the fun times begin ….

Orrrrrrrrr …. NOT …. ?!!!?

…. dependent upon, how much media rhetoric you’ve bought into, or again, NOT, as the case may be ….

So, having watched BBC Coverage of most of the results coming in, and listening to the comments being dropped by political commentators, and financial experts, it was immediately evident, that, obviously, the black guests who were, Clinton supporters, were stuck in some bubble, of, ” Clinton Love “, without Monica Lewinsky … LOL …

… that had them in some delusional frame of mind, regarding the results, especially after a relatively fast start for Hilary in quite a few states, but as the night wore on, a lot of talk was suddenly backtracking, and looking for reasons as to why the landslide, that, it actually became, came to pass ….

Now I use the term, landslide, loosely, as it was a matter of decimal percentage points in Key sates like Florida, Trayvon country, which was quite interesting, as they had 99% of the vote in for quite some time with Trump in front, before they’d confirm that the projection had him ACTUALLY, winning … ???

…. which had me thinking, rigging could so easily be done in Elections.

Emily Maitlis, Andrew Neil and others were pontificating, giving us Historical references, to Reagan and further back, but none could, ” Apparently “, quite believe what was happening …..

Well, hate to bust their white bubbles, but hey, YEAH, ” White America “, confirmed their wish I think, to see, Black Lives Matter ideals, diminished, and more importantly, to have a white face back in power, who actually, has been a breath of fresh air, compared to the calm, calculating rhetoric of another Democrat, who clearly does not have her finger on the pulse of Americas psyche, much like, her predecessor !

Or … The Pre-Election Polls … !?!

… as the polls showed leanings towards a Clinton win, pretty much, up to polling day, especially after the FBI suddenly dropped their investigation into her emails …. yet AGAIN … YAWN …. !!!!!

… only for it to be, suddenly changed … ???

… by the end of the night.

A shift, which allies itself to the comment that was made by one of the pundits, who stated that polling may now become obsolete, because it had become clear that what many people said, may not quite have been reflective of their REAL FEELINGS, about Donald Trump.

Forked-tongue for dinner anyone … ???

It really has been laughable, how the apparent, ” Liberals ” … which, may well become a name synonymous with, covert racists, continued to try to explain how this is … NOT … middle America !

Whatever they or that … is … ???

According to them, it’s working class, ” Urban “, country folk, who have been swayed by Mr. Trumps message, indeed, this may well be true, but something tells me that more … Again, ” Apparently “, moderate thinkers, of ALL colours, ended up feeling as though Donald was their only hope, well …

The Empire may well have just … Struck Back … !!!!!

…. in ways that they, may not be able to conceptualise, or recognise, as time goes by, but, for now, there is a massive part of Americas’ Electorate, who are quite happy to see, a man labelled as a .. Bigot, Sexist, Groper, and, Highly Volatile individual, take the reins of power for the Western, Free World …

Hmmmm … is this 2016 or 1916 ???

Well, either way, things have changed, but remain the same, the name Trump, will now not only be synonymous with Plazas, Hotels & Skyscrapers, but with Whitehouse papers, and deeds now …..

Scared anyone … ???

Well, i’ve seen people now talk all sorts of things in just a couple of days, the first one, conveniently being, 9/11 2016 …….

Do any of you believe in … Coincidence ???

Anyway, conspiracy theories aside, could the vote have been rigged ???

Well, Donald did warn everyone, but he just didn’t say, that, it may well have long since been rigged for HIM … !!!!!

Anywho’ … moving on, NAACP members were spoken to, white collar workers, Evangelists and countless others, from senior, former FBI people, to, Latinos, who seemed quite happy to have got one of them in congress ….

Small steps eh, but realistically, beyond the public, who clearly, in many cases, lied to the pollsters, about who they were REALLY, gonna vote for !

There were, other, curve balls thrown into the mix, from a massive reduction, apparently, in black voter turnout, to the composition of who voted for who …..

Well, amazingly …..

AGAIN …..

Apparently, lots of white women voted for Donald, as did white males, however, the younger whites, and of course, sons and daughters of immigrants, seemed less inclined to fall in line with Mr. Trump.

Statistics that should not shock, but, should be taken note of …. The idea that, only rednecks from the urban areas of America are Trumps supporters, have now been scuppered, once and for all.

In America now, it must be quite an interesting environment to be in, as one of the panelists proved, when asked who she voted for, there will, i’m sure, be many who will never show that their allegiance was to this, much maligned man, who actually, when you compare him to say Palin or McCain, is probably, on par with, if, not so bad right … ???

Well, I like Trump, and am glad he has won, however, NOT, for the reasons you might think though, I like the fact that he can be labelled as things without reservation, as opposed to past Presidents, who like, Nixon & Clinton, were deemed to be squeaky clean, until found out, and proven otherwise, indeed, where’s the dirt on BO ?!?

Well, I guess his initials are where that lies …. Ha Ha ….

… and …

What of Jay & Queen Bey, and even Mary J … will they have been singing and rapping for Mrs. Clinton last night eh … ???

Probably not, but one thing they’ll be remembered for, is their support for The LOSER … that she is … !!!!!!

….. whose name will now go down as, TWICE, trying but failing, to secure a place alongside Bills’ name, in the list of US Presidents.

So, do Black Lives Matter now ?!?

… or, have they now been proven, in the majority of cases to be clowns, who continue to be CLOWNED !!!!

and prove themselves to be, complicit with, providing a shield for what AMERICA, REALLY IS …. A country that, actually, has NO … African Americans, they disgrace the name Africa, by placing America next to it … and that;s my view.

Much like these terms, Afro-Caribbean, etcetera etcetera, the coon fest, has reached new heights, it would seem, in 2016 …..

Give them some, small piece of status, fame, money, and a place alongside high profile whites, and their African …. becomes redundant, seemingly, very quickly …..

Colin Kaepernick’ has brought this subject to the fore, as has this election, in terms of …. who the, lets’ say, black people are…. who have no shame in supporting the system that now has given them, in some cases, some very nice chains, to inscribe their names upon, like good little slaves …..

Yeah I said it, fuck it, what they gonna do, call Trump to sort me out … !?!

Good Luck with THAT … !!!!!!

They are all over the place, from Facebook to social media platforms all over the internet, and, further afield ……

So, who will ACTUALLY, leave America now, and who will stay eh … ???

I’m sure a good few were joking, but, to think that famous people are claiming to be so incensed, by the idea of being in an America run by Trump, that they will go to Spain, Canada and elsewhere ….. is quite laughable ….. !!!

So, Obamas’ America, and the America that most have grown up in, benefited from, and shown love for, wasn’t so bad then ….. ?!?!?

YET …..

It’s the SAME AMERICA, that has produced a Trump President in 2016, once again …. NOT …. 1916, but 2016 …. ?!?

The Hypocrites are gonna get found out now, the cash cow that fed them, is now, all of a sudden, in trouble ???

The double standards, and, two faced nature of quite a number of American people, can no longer be seen as people complaining for … NO REASON …

Names like Giulianii, will now return to mainstream politics, and positions of considerable influence, the same Mayor Giuliani, who faced no such backlash from Celebs’, when it came to policies he implemented, that essentially, would appear to be ones, that his pal, Donald, would stand by, as being effective and positive policies, in terms of New Yorks’ and Americas’, National security …..

Hmmmm …..

Well, today i’ve read and seen stories about, physical and, verbal abuse, from college students to elderly white Americans, who are doing nothing more than releasing, that which we all have been made to believe, has been diminished in the White, American Psyche …..

Errrr …. WRONG …. !!!

As the saying goes, if you’re on a long straight road, and you get off your bus, when it no longer is in view, does it just disappear, well, this ain’t Hollywood, so, NO … Mo’ Fo’s ….. NO ….. !!!

The Co-insequential sequence of events should not be disconnected to England and Brexit, both have bred changes of leader, and both have merely reminded, the wise heads among us, of the facts, while the rest, who were walking around feeling good, because their delusions fed them ideals of equality, are now crying FOUL, when there is NO …. Foghorn Leghorn in view ….. !!!!!

If you wanted change, maybe you should of made some cash, so that you’d have some now, rather than buying the ….

Oh, the worlds moving forward, because Obama gained power, and promised some ….

Well, they’ve got some now !!!!!

and before people start jumping on Baracks’ back,

He … DIDN’T ….

…. actually say, when the change would come, but now it has, well, it’s time to take a stance, and make sure you stand alongside those, who TRULY, have your back, before you face the type of racism, or, economic woes, that will NOT BE ….

…. something that the… ” Illuminati ” … whatever …. !!!!

…. or, as I now prefer, Hierarchy of Donald and his buddies, will be suffering, due to, not only the colour, and abundance of their money, but also, it would seem now, because of the colour of their skin …..

and hence, for the rest of us ….

It’s clear that now, and for the next few ….

The Fun Times … Begin ………………………… !!!!!

” Miami Vibes ” … written by Big Virge 9/12/2015

So, finally I stop in Miami for a couple of nights, having passed through the airport to go elsewhere previously.

So, a rather, unhelpful girl, questioned my receipt for a free transfer to my hotel, but, eventually accepted that I was due a spot on the bus !

The volume of Latinos & South Americans who are in this part of America is evident, from the airport, to the hotel, just from the volume of Spanish being spoken !!!!

So, off to the, ” Intercontinental “, which overlooks the bay, and is basically downtown ….

…. and WOW …. What a cool spot !!!

A … Very Old Hotel, by all accounts, but, fully decked out !

As per my trip to Maui, last year, the front desk guy was immediately on some,

” I’ll upgrade you sir ! “, without batting an eyelid, so, 12th floor, overlooking the bay, rather than my original room, which had a basic view of the bricks and mortar of downtown Miami !!!

So, already feeling the vibe of the place, my second encounter with my bell hop, was very cool too, as he explained that my room had some nice touches, like, electronic blinds so I need not leave my bed when going to sleep, or, when wanting to view the bay from my bed, upon waking up !!!!!

Also, info watch folks … !!!!!

There were some beverages placed on what, appeared to be a tray !!!!

Well, NOT QUITE … !!!

It was actually an, electronic device, which, he stated, charged the room, as soon as any of the items were lifted from their respective positions !!!!!

Nice !!!!!

…. but, not if you’re not made aware of such, subtle extravagances, which would clearly cost ya a fair penny !

Anyway, shower and food, as it was already 11 pm on Friday night, so, I wanted to try and sample the nightlife !!!

Well, the main restaurant stayed open late at the weekends thankfully, so, dinner was an 11.30 job in a very, swankily designed area, adjacent to the lobby and bar !!!!

I was greeted by a very cool, Peruvian waiter, named Rodrigo, who was very talkative, so, after having some, Delicious lamb, and an absolutely, spot on steak, with lots of Latin spices and a Colombian Bread, that just melted as soon as it touched my palette, he explained that the restaurant was owned and designed by a Mexican, who had a chain that was in places from, New York to Dubai, and to be fair, it wasn’t cheap, but, wasn’t crazy expensive either, but man, the food was exquisite !!!!!

Had a selection of what appeared to me, to be, steroid abusers, well, body builders, at the table across from me, a sight that I not only expected to, but, did see during the next couple of days in Miami !!!!

Maybe they were clean … ???

…. but, this is Miami, and, as Rodrigo and I ended up discussing, as cool as Miami is, pretence in Floridians, is as common as you’d expect in a place where money is flaunted !!!

We spoke on a multitude of topics, and he explained, that I could walk around safely, but shouldn’t do it downtown, as crime is quite regular, and we’re talking some pretty nasty ish’ … !!!

People are regularly held up, or, as he stated, CUT UP … by those below the poverty line !!!

However he stated that rather than head to South Beach, I should try the, Brickell Village, as its bars and clubs stay open, pretty much, through the night, and has a cool vibe, and, Hot Chicas’, are all over the place !!!!

As our conversation became more extensive, he explained about his reasons for leaving his home in Peru.

The story, sadly, encompassed being impoverished, and as beautiful as Peru is, he warned against staying in Lima, as crime levels have increased considerably, in recent times there.

Considering he was working, we really did have a very extensive conversation, which broached everything from, family, to appearance and judgement, as he explained that he liked to rock a FULL ON, ” Billy Goat Gruff “, type of look, which his wife, and work, prohibited him from sporting, and he suggested that, my hair would draw, quite a lot of attention, but was a popular look in Miami.

Well, as ever, I explained that it’s not all good, and that it tends to expose ignorance in people, pretty quickly !

Thus, time to find out if he was right, well, as ever, being in a money environment, exposes you to a very different attitude from people, because of the assumption, that you must be loaded !!!

Well, as I hit the bar for my customary, holiday XO, a white guy who was there on his own, immediately said hello, and chat began.

He was a very, cool looking, 50 year old dude, and he quickly stated, was a 6 figure earning realtor, who had found God, a recently born again Christian, so, I was on some …

“Okay, let me drink my drink and move on type vibes “, in my mind, but, as he talked more, he said he was a Rotarian, and that he was in the process of trying to provide affordable housing for the poor, that encompassed, I guess, more than the norm, as in, providing schemes to not only house, but to, educate and provide ways to employ, and secure things like, child care, so that these people could eventually sustain themselves gainfully, as he claimed his, Christian faith, had instructed him to do this !!!!

An interesting chap right … ???

He also claimed to have invested 300 thousand dollars, of his own money, over the last three years, and had networked with developers, to bring his idea to fruition, downtown, in Miami.

Indeed, an interesting guy, who then explained that he’d just got divorced, due to meeting another Christian Woman, who was a catalyst for change in what was clearly, a wealthy, but, unhappy existence !

Interesting doesn’t even, begin to explain this dude, as he then invited me to go partying with him !!!!

Hmmmm…. Quite the Christian, as he explained when we left the bar, at 2 am, to go looking for a good time !

Well, as he explained about his run ins wih women and hookers in Miami … It wax clear he wasn’t quite as, squeaky clean, as I suggested to him, a Good Christian should be !!!!!!

He seemed to appreciate my candour, so, then was like, “i’m gonna take you to The Brickells'”, so we can look for some pussy !!!!

I was of course, willing, and next thing he was taking me to his apartment, or, should I say Private Condo building, to pick up his car, well, TRUCK !!!!

… so we could drive to a favourite spot of his called, ” The Blue Martini ” …. A bar come club.

It reminded me of some, Dave Chappelle stand up, where he spoke on white peoples’ attitude to breaking the law, when driving, as my newfound, buddy for the night, Robert, had already had a few too many to be driving, i’d imagine, according to local law !!!!

Now, he wasn’t like, blind drunk, but, was def’ over the limit, not that he cared one iota !!!!!

So, as he takes me into this, again …. Very Plush Building … !!! … with, reception security as we entered, we go up like, 20 floors, and then I see this blacked out, heavy duty, pick up, that now proved he was no bullshitter !!!!

Money – YES, clearly in ABUNDANCE !!!!!

So, off we go, the truck was, SO BIG, that it could barely make the bends, to get out of the car park !!!!

Classic Mustangs, etcetera, on every floor !!!!

As we roll into the village, he points out new developments downtown, that are far from affordable, but, have waiting lists to get into !!!

1 & 2 bed condos’ that go for 300 thousand Dollars, upwards, that are in 60 floor buildings !!!!!

We get to the bar at 3, and he says it shuts at 4 !!!!!

The doorman, when he sees me, is ready to turn me away, until I drop, that the bar needs some London vibes !!!!

He smiles, but, as I have no I.D. …. He starts trying it, and basically, demands cash for him to let me in, so I get him to accept a 20, but, the cover is still a further 50 to get in !

Robert, who was vex that I paid the doorman, without batting an eyelid, covers the 50 for me, and party time begins !!!!!

Well, cool spot it was !!!!!

One floor up from ground level, all on one floor, but, with an outdoor bar, as well as two other bars, and people could dance where they wanted.

Latin tunes were thumping, with that, electronic edge to them, a mostly, mature crowd, so, we were good !

My man was scoping immediately, so, as I said to him, quite the Christian …. Ha Ha …. !!!!

So, having bought the first drink, the lil’ hottie’, who served it, got REALLY Pissy, when she received no tip !!!!

It was like a Reservoir Dogs moment, as, unless I get some exceptional service, i’m not tipping, just because ?!?

However, as Robert quickly explained, the service industry staff in The US, get paid so poorly, that they need their tips, so, I obliged, mainly because …. she was f’ing hot !!!!!

So, we started to prowl, and BOOM …. It was as if this, Super Fine Chica’, could smell the money, and Robert was that dude !!!!!

So, after he bought us, two HUGE Cohiba’ Cigars !!!!!

I told him to get on her cos’, she was eyeing him up …. and, he was in like Flint !!!!!

She was tall & sexy, but, very flirtatious !!!!

So, I started to get down to the tunes, and drank and smoked to my hearts content …. and had a great time, til’ 5 !!!!

In the meantime, Robert had dished the girl his business card, but said that he knew she used him for drinks, but, for that, he got to grab her up !!!! tits and ass, but he was one of quite a few, who did …..

Different town, same old ish’ ….

Hot chicks doing their, teasing and gold digging thing, which now, makes me laugh, because they’re so f’ing obvious !!!

So, Crazy Night … Crazy Christian Guy …. But I had a great time !!!!!

The Virge, getting some Miami vibes, thankfully, without the vice !!!!!

Onwards and upwards, as my next trip would take me to Honolulu, Hawaii ….

More to come folks …..

One.

People and Changes … written by Big Virge 24/10/2013

Yes Yes … Motha Funkstas’ …..

Been a while, as per usual now, because much like what is being spoken about by many these days, including, Brand & Paxman seemingly !?!

I am getting older…… aaahhhhh …… LOL

…. and, numbed to much that the people of the world, now, seem to be falling in line with, be it, rhetoric about political movements, coming from the multitude of blood suckers in governments around the globe, from everybody’s friend B.O. !!!!

…. to, Cameron, to, our own Freundel, here in Bim, to, pretty much everything and anything that refers to monetary issues, causing pressures that are now hitting, an abundance of the general populous.

Until it happens to you eh folks ???

Until wars of … National, or, street varieties, get close to your door, like robberies, and criminal boldness, that, would once of been seen as, untenable, even by criminals, back in the day, right !?!

There are many people who I have met in this life, who have all the right TALK, but, only when someone, who is, let’s say, of their ilk, speaks on it publicly, and, causes a stir.

However, the cowardice in some is becoming evident, as they are now jumping on, whichever issue, suits their position, by this, I mean ….

Choosing to side with something, that, stops them from having to think or explain how they have been, happy to be party to, or, in other words, pleading ignorance to things, which, they knew in their hearts, didn’t sit right with them, but, somehow, they stood by, regardless of their doubts about their actions …..

Hmmmm ….. ???

I would highly recommend, the documentary on Killer Whales, called, ” Blackfish “, as a prime example, having recently watched it.

The idea that, keepers, fishermen, and people who run places like Seaworld, in Orlando, had the animals best interests at hearts, is truly astounding !!!!!

I’ve said it before about, white folks and their animals/pets, and it is never far from my mind, when I see people kissing their dogs, that, previously had their mouths, on their ball sack or privates !!!!!

Eeeeeeeuuuuuwwwwww !!!!!!

…. it is incredible to me …. !!!!!!

YES … they have less, to, no inclination to rob or shoot your ass, but, there has to be some sense of acknowledgement, that, they are ANIMALS, NOT …. Human Beings, who, could well do with a sense of the … ” Love ” … on a simply, human level.

I have been very fortunate, after an iffy period here in Bim, to have found some, incredibly cool people to vibe with, reason with, and share a sense of human love with, and NO, I ain’t talking bout no f’ing gyal, on some bullchit, love tip, cos my dick is getting licked !!!!!

I’m talking about that brotherly and sisterly love, that comes from reasoning about things, that are much more basic, than, the planet and it’s environment, that, has it’s own, VERY POWERFUL, ecosystem, that, no amount of recycling is gonna change, due to it’s ability, beyond our cognitive powers, to adapt and find a way to move forward !!!!

Things like, basic inequalities, such as poverty, a lack of respect and love for each other, regardless of sex, colour, or, deviant traits, and simply, an acceptance of truth in how we are able to communicate.

This week has availed so much, in terms of rhetoric within people, some are baying for blood, having dipped their feet in with the butchers of the arts, only to find them, willing to cull the purer forms of artistic expression, having previously claimed, that it was perfect ???

Others have been referring to Barbados as, “Third World”, because of governance, that has a heritage, based upon, “First World Teachings”.

Hmmmmm ….. did I say …. “First World” ….. ???

So, where the fuck is … ” The Second World ” ???
…. as a friend just asked me ?!?

It truly is amazing, the level of arrogance some people have regarding this world, due to whatever ideals they were raised upon, which are now being, ” SHATTERED “, by the information super-highway, which isn’t quite as accepting of keeping “ish”, hidden.

Pandoras Box indeed, the internet may be …. !?!

Talking of shattered, I must give a shout out to a certain, ” Steve McQueen “.

NO …. not the dead one, who played me of course, LOL, Virgil Hiltz, in, “The Great Escape”, so many moons ago, but, the one I went to school with !!!!

Yeah, i’m name dropping now …. but, in all seriousness, Turner Prize Winner, and now, award winning film maker, Steve McQueen, who seems to be alive and well, for stirring up the issue of slavery, without, Tarantino Visions, with his new film, 12 Years a Slave, based on the true story, of a once free, black man, Solomon Northup, who, ended up being a slave, seemingly, for, 12 years !!!!!

This film has clearly brought the discussion of what has been, in essence, something of a model, for, not just Killer Whales, but, nowadays, for where the leaders of the world seem to want this world to be !?!

It’s all relative, but, as per a comment Mr. McQueen made in a recent interview, with Tom Brook, of the beeb, where he intimated that, if it wash’t for the system, he wouldn’t be where he is today ….

… whether that is true or not, I wish him all the best with the film as it races towards getting some Oscars, the way people are talking.

Anyhow, is the revolution coming, as per Russell Brands’, Paxman interview, and if so, how much is he gonna earn from it ???

Just kidding, but, the realities of how people are dealing with the changes that, are being brought to the fore, in terms of, the negative elements, should not be washed away as, being about the environment or political upheaval.

Politics, as it stands, is a horse that needs flogging !!!!!

As do the people who seem to be suggesting that we stand by it, until it provides the change that the world and it’s people needs, as if politicians care about the needs of anyone beyond themselves, and their, ” Elite Club “.

What a f’ing joke it has now become, in the belly of the beast, being England, when, Russell Brand is the man calling for the … ” Revolution “, to begin !!!!!

On that note, i’ll end for now, but leave you with this cool piece of art to check out, if you haven’t, Christopher Walken is in a film called, ” The Power of Few “, which has a stellar performance from a young lady called, Tione Johnson ….

No massive reviews that rave about it’s quality, because it’s a lil bit, ” Out There “, at times, but, gets to a very interesting, revolutionary ending …..
as it were ….

One that might help us, more than, all this rhetoric about, saving the environment first ……

I say, NO, adamantly to such talk … !!!!!

…. and say, fix people, if we can do such a thing, first, and the rest should, if we do it properly, fall into place …..

Don’t get caught up people … !!!!!

We are a … LONG WAY … from the sort of revolution, I believe, we really need …..

…. which involves, these three words.

Equality, Peace & Unity !!!

One love y’all …..

The Virge.

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 !!!!!!!!!
