“Smile” … A poem written & performed by Big Virge

So, as quickly as I can express on the woes of dealing with certain black folks, the issues of dealing with white folks in todays world, also concerns, and their ridiculous attempts to reduce knife crime, need to be addressed in better ways than these ridiculous campaigns, of adverts and knife free boxes, being placed in chicken shops in England, which, of course, has pretty much immediately, led to someone being stabbed to death in one !?!

Good work there white folks ?

As expressed in my last post, the footballers are really getting abused, behind the safety of anonymous social media accounts. However, to think that the Italians have got individuals, who, having seen the ridiculous levels of racism from stands in Italy, has, after a lengthy career in the media, dropped the banana clanger, in referring to Lukaku being stopped !!!

…. Like, WOW dude, 80 or not, Mister Luciano Passirani, is clearly in need of some, Ron Atkinson type education, on how to eradicate such ignorance from his thinking, but, the question now is, can that really ever be done with people who have clearly been bred, to think in these incredibly disrespectful, and, hateful ways ?!?

It is what it is I guess, however, when guys like Peter Beardsley, who has played with, numerous black players, is dropping monkey bombs, ” allegedly “, on young black players, one has to wonder whether change is something, that can be truly effected in racist people, especially when, former players like John Barnes, Andy Cole and Les Ferdinand defend them, who are all black ?!?

It’s just crazy !!!

As it has been for individuals in Italy, to suggest that, monkey chants are a mark of FEAR, and Respect for the talents of black players.

Incredibly, Inter fans, where Lukaku is now playing, have subsequently sent a letter in support of the same Cagliari fans, who are proving to be the, Monkey Chant Champions, of Italy currently.

Now, that there is some, Giuliani, ” The truth isn’t always true”, type bullshit, from Inter fans, the media, and of course the Cagliari fans, who have no remorse for this type of taunting, clearly.

I guess it’s part and parcel of football, and these black guys are now on substantial paydays, so, they should just smile and keep quiet about it, as many have done for, far too long clearly !

So, of course, I cannot lead into this piece without mentioning, poor old Justin Trudeau !!!

Blackface anyone … ???

I must admit though, that I saw a comment online, that did interest, when he ran for the presidency for the first time, how come these pictures didn’t surface then huh ???

NOT … that i’m giving excuses for him, or any other, apparently,

” Liberal “, white soul, who happens to be trying to forward agendas, that reduce the likelihood of such shameful behaviour, from other white folks …..

Hmmm, doesn’t exactly make the liberals look any better than the fascists, who they always seem to be decrying, but have actually done, basically nothing, to stop, in real terms.

The germ of racism, runs deep in a lot of white peeps’, and maybe it’s time for black minds, to be a little more cautious in who they ally themselves to, in some vain attempt, to affect a change in this disease, that is a MAJOR Part of Society, no matter what these liberals say, especially those, who in recent times, have joined forces with, essentially, right wing parties, to take, uh hmmm … SHARE power, in a world where divisions, are on the increase.

So, what have they done to advance the cause that will, remove these racists from positions of power ?!?

Not so much it seems, and I think, as much as humour is as good a tool as any, to wake up heads, I don’t think Lenny Henry showed any degree of smarts, when joking about himself being Trudeau at a ROYAL Television Society event, this week ?!?

An event that he was attending to discuss the problem of, yup, you’ve guessed it …

” Diversity ” …. !!!

What a joke, but, not the type that I find funny at all, in these days and times of increased ignorance, and divisive behaviour !!!

So, this weeks piece, speaks on why it isn’t so easy, for those of us who smell the stench of racism, lies and deceit in society, to let money, fame, or, some hot piece of ass, be the things that enable us to put on a brave face and to …..

“The Trump Effect” …. written by big Virge 13/12/2015

Okay folks, so, in doing my catch up on things i’d written a while back, that I wanted to post at the time, but couldn’t …..

Here’s one that was inspired by what I saw in different parts of the world, at a time where terror acts were all over the news, and clearly, in most peoples’ minds ……

So, having spoken in my last post, about the madness that is the Presidential Candidacy Race, I have to follow that post with this, which was one written on my flight back from LA to Miami, having completed my trip to New Zealand, via Australia, Fiji, Honolulu, LA & Miami, pretty much, days after the Paris Bombings, and then travelling through the US, soon after San Bernardino, etcetera …..

So, this post is a reflection on, the attitudes, reaction and general vibe of people in the aftermath of Paris, and then of course, the effect that a certain Donald Trumps’ speeches seemed to be having on people ………..

So, here I am on my second, American Airlines flight in two days, well, three, if you include the time difference ….

FUCK …. do I hate travelling on American Airlines ….. !!!!!!

The stewards are mostly, old and decrepit looking, and really do seem to have their head so far up Donald Trumps’ ass, that, to me, unless you’re white and wearing a Klan Hood, their attitude is a F’ing disgrace …. !!!

Again, it obviously isn’t all of them, however, certain attitudes are far too prevalent, when it comes to reaction, and service.

Now, i’m NO Oprah lover like that, but, have to say that i’m down with the Oprah’ statement that suggests that, basically …..

“There still exists, a generation of old white people, who need to hurry up and die already !!!!!”

(If I have Mis-quoted her, then it’s not to be attributed to her of course, but you get the gist !)

…. and that’s ….

On … THE REAL … !!!!

Now, of all industries in the working world, judgement should surely be limited in a field such as that of international travel, but wow, is it prevalent !!!!!

As I tell people all the time, even, stupid black people !!!!!

The moment you do not fit the, Ben Carson, Conservative, black citizen, type model, a crown of a hairstyle like mine, quickly provides reactions from people, who seem to think that every one of us who rocks such styles, are either, stupid, or, deserving of some kind of second class treatment, or worse still, treatment that indicates a complete unwillingness to acknowledge our existence !

Now, when we black folks act up, all of a sudden, we’re being ignorant !!?!!

Well, as much as I like Trumps’ frankness, there is a level of ignorance, bigotry, as well as, double standards, that i’ve seen in him, that airline stewards ….

(Particularly, those who work for American Airlines)

…. seem to have already adopted … !!!!!

The fact that they’re cheap as fuck, and that their aircraft designs, work like cans for sardines, may well affect the attitude of people flying on them, however, having undertaken the job, the staff should be professional … !!!!!

In fact, they shouldn’t get to be stewards if there is even a smidgeon of ignorance in them ….. !!!

…. but there it is …..

The Trump Effect !!!!!

I sense that those who’ve been forced into playing the, Diplomatic Card, when it comes to dealing with …. Non-Whites, over the last few years, are feeling as though, Good Ol’ Donald, has made it acceptable for them to rear their, deep rooted ignorance, in how they deal with, as said, blacks in particular, like myself, who do not, and ….

WILL NOT, play the ….

” WHATEVER MASSA’ !!! “, vibe, just to get by !!!!

It ISN’T a pre-requisite of my existence, as a black male, to, do things, in a manner that DOESN’T suit me, to appease other races insecurities, especially when, the rules of the book are constantly, flouted, and broken, by white people !!!

…. from leaving shit, unattended on planes, so they can stow their carry on baggage, to, standing in aisles, when the seatbelt sign is on.

I dunno, having spoken to an elderly woman from Israel on the flight into Miami, who has lived in Miami, for over 30 years, who, upon hearing me say that I like Trumps, unbridled expression, dived in on some, essentially, Anti-Arab rhetoric, and, Pro UK & France talk, which was the trap set, by my calm, English Tones, after an initial misunderstanding with her over seating ….

It has become clear to me, from the looks I received in the US, from, pretty much …. ALL RACES, including my own … !?!

…. that ….

“The Trump Effect” ….

…. is already, re-igniting, the divisive nature of human beings, which, the lady from Israel, finally expressed in her rhetoric.

Essentially, that, education has been forsaken, for technological devices, and attitudes, that are divisive !

From TV shows, like Homeland, to, Fox News in the US, it’s clear that as much of a circus show, as Trumps’ Campaign is proving itself to be, there is indeed, a very dangerous effect, that has yet to reach its peak … !!!

A peak that, if the world’s people are not careful, could escalate into a World War Three type, scenario, if Mr. Trump, or, people of his ilk, be they, Democrat, Liberal or Republican, reach the Whitehouse Hot Seat, this time around ….

So people ….

HEED THESE WORDS !!!!!

STOP … with the ignorance, arrogance & judgements ….. !!!!!!

…. and deal in something

…. ” BIGGER ” …

HUMANITY & EQUALITY … !!!!!

Show some sense of balance in your views, and remember that, the majority of those using their status to preach, are not doing it for your benefit, but, in most cases, are doing it for their name to go down in history, and for GREED ..,,

Beware INDEED …..

of ……

” The Trump Effect ” …… !!!!!

Peace & Love people ….

and YES, I really did write this at the end of 2015 !!!

One.

Virge.
