“Double Standards” … A Poem written by Big Virge 29/11/2013

Well, on the basis of much that is revealed in the documentary posted below ……

“Britains Forgotten Slave Owners” …..

It would seem fair to say, that there are and continue to be some…

EXTRAORDINARY … Double Standards, from a monetary perspective, ALONE ….

But, here are a few more, that are clearly, NOT, figments of black folks imagination, or, ” Chips on our Shoulders ” …..

“Yo, for my anger settle,
Man give me a treble !
Wait, i’ve got to mingle
So, give me a single
in fact, i’ll take a double
cos’ this may start trouble !”

All these … ” Double Standards ” …
are getting me angered …

From Lawrence to Walker …
to … Christopher Alder ,,,

it seems some … English People …
Can’t deal …. with … The Evil .. !!!
that … ” Lurks ‘ … in their house … !!!

when they get … ” Found Out ” … !!!!!!!

We blacks … should … ” Shut Mouths ” … ?!?
and … NOT … speak about …
The way we get treated …
in … ” Some ” … English Towns … !!!!!

or speak of our … ” LOSSES ” … !?!
because of … White Bosses …
who’ve got … EVERY RIGHT … !?!
to … Dismiss … our plight …
of fighting … for lives …

when police ….
SHINE THEIR LIGHTS … !!!!!

or keep us … “in the dark” … ?
About …. Monkey Chants …. !!!
while Black soldiers … DIE …

On … Police Station Floors … !!!

They’d rather …. ” Deny ” ….
how we’re … Treated like … WHORES … !!!
and … left on … ALL FOURS …
while THEY … have a laugh …
in stations and … Courts … !!!!!

The standards … ” They Have ” …
DON’T … Add up … like Math … !?!

They’d … ” Rather Not ” … Hear … !!!
about the …. ” Veneers ” …
Behind … “Cover Ups” …
that … EXPOSES STUFF …

About …
Just How … ” low ” …
” Their Standards ” … can go … !!!!!!

EXCUSES … Excuses …
and YES … MORE … EXCUSES … !!!?!!!

are what they … ” Provide ” …
to cover their … ” Looseness ” … !!!

“All people do wrong !”

is their NEW … ” Hot Song ” … !!!

All This … while … ” Trayvons’ ” …
are Lost … due to shots …
from … Zimmerman Bods’ … !!!!!!!!!!!!

“Of course we should Massa’ !
Let’s erase those chapters !”

See i’m down with … The Man …
….. ” Lilian Thuram ” ……

So …
Take the stance … THAT …

” Double Standards ” … Land …
in the laps of … Clans …
who stand next to … ” Racists ” …
in ………. Various Places ………. !!!!!!

But … WON’T …
Get on the … Faces …
of those who spread … HATRED … !!!!!!

I wonder … ” Sometimes ” … ?
whether they … ” Recognise ” …

Or ….
Take time to … THINK ….
About …… ANYTHING ……

Beyond ………………………………… Their Kin …. ?!!!?

It’s CLEAR Most ……… DON’T … !!!!!
and … Won’t … ” Rock The Boat ” …
when … “within” … ” Their Folk ” …

They hear … subtle jokes …
that … EXPOSE … Attitudes …
with … ” Racist Styled Views ” … !!!!!

How many … make … FEUDS ?
within … their own crews … ?

It seems there … Aren’t Many … !?!
who … TRULY … are … ” Ready ” …
to REALLY … say something …

They’d rather do … NOTHING … !!!!!

and be … YES … Complicit …
with those … Who Are … RACIST … !!!!!

but are … QUICK … to run lines
and wanna … Start Fights …
with blacks who … AREN’T SHY … !!!!!

to … Speak on … Their Crimes …
and … Bring them to … LIGHT … !!!!!

The question is …. WHY …. ???

Their standards seem … ” Doubled ” … !?!
when their feathers get … ” Ruffled ” … !!!!

It’s Clear … They get … ” TROUBLED ” … !!!
and just … WILL NOT BE … “humbled” …

I’ve said it before … !!!
I’ll say it again … !!!

It’s like Mos’ Def’ … said …

“When they do it well,
It’s seen as success !
When we do it well
It’s seen as suspect !”

But ….. ???
Who are … ” Suspect ” … ?!?
when their standards .. are … CHECKED … !?!

It’s time to … INSPECT …
and let ME … Cut The Deck … !!!

I ain’t from … Wu Tang … !!!
but … Know about … ” Klans ” …
and … IGNORANT Gangs … !!!
who STILL … ” Take The Stance ” …

That …

Immigrants cause ….
Their countrys’ … ” Downfall ” …

So Let’s … ” Double Check ” …
and get this … ” Correct ” …

When they … ” Move Around ” …
across …. Different Towns ….

On YES … Foreign Grounds …

Does their …. ” Migration ” …. ?
or ……………. IMMIGRATION …… !?!

Make for …. Better Nations …. ?????

when how they get … ” Stationed ” …
seems to bear ……. ” NO RELATION …… ?!?

to … Living in … SQUALOR … ?!?
and … Begging … for Dollars …
or … Begging for … ” Pounds ” … !?!

That’s … REALLY … NOT HOW …
They seem to ….. ” Get Down ” ….. !?!

Do They … FEAR POLICE … ?
when They .. walk the streets … ?
” Upon ” …. Foreign Shores …. ?

Or … Live like the … POOR … ?!?

Their standards … Stay … HIGH … !!!
wherever they ………. ” LIE ” ………..

Of course I meant … ” LAY ” … !!!

But in the …. U.K.
Immigrants … AREN’T OKAY … !!!
and should … YES ………………………………………………….. PLAY AWAY …….

UNLESS …. They will play …
in ways that …. Display ….

A wish to … “CONFORM” …

and NOT … Kick Up A Storm … !!!

when how they are treated …
is …. ” Racism Born ” …. !!!!!!!!!!

I … ” Double Up ” …
My Standards …

So that …
They stay … HIGH … !!!

and … WILL NOT … !!!
have … ” Handlers ” …
Decide …. How I ride …. !!!

and … DON’T KEEP ….
” Whoring Types ” …

Standing ……
By my … side … !!!

and DON’T … “hide behind lies” …
or ……. ” Ignorant Pride ” …….. !!!!!!!!

cos’ it’s now … CLEAR TO ME … !!!

” Some ” … FORGET … Their Manners …
and seem to be ….. ” Hampered ” …..

when it comes to them … SEEING …

How they … “HOLD” …

…… ” Double Standards ” ……

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 !!!!!!!!!

Big Virge speak on an interesting week !!!

Well, ladies and gents quite a week, England’s footie boys have failed for the first time in 24 years to make it to the euros, oh dear !!!

Anyway, I’ve had an interesting week, and it’s just beginning, saw American Gangster which yes has Denzel doing his thing as only he can !!! based on a true story ?

Well, hollywood true ofcourse !!!

Certainly in my opinion, is worth a look, not so into the idea of one black guy being this ultimate gangster ! but hey ! that suits those who wish to promote every black man as a criminal of some shape or other . . . . yawn !!!

Also watched Wonderland with Val Kilmer playing John Holmes, an ex-pornstar who finds himself into some rather undistinguished company after his career has taken a dip, again based on true events and clearly shows the other side of white society, cocaine, violence, corruption and downright wickedness in all it’s forms, a must watch movie as it takes you on . . . . quite a ride, as does my final movie recommendation for the week peeps, Harsh Times, Christian Bale is outstanding as a rather messed up ex – army man who has to come to terms with the whole re-adjustment to society once returning home thing. Excellent performances from Freddy Rodriguez and Eva Longoria, yes Eva (desperate housewives) Longoria ! A serious movie with a serious message that is poignant considering all the recent talk about poor treatment of returning army personnel, trust me, if you are pro-war then this may just switch your mind from that train of thought, and if you’re anti-war then this film is an absolute must for you.
