” Keep It Real !!! ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Okay folks so, it’s that time for me to drop some more, rhyme driven insights, on the world, and how we humans deal with living in it …..

So this month’s spoken word offering deals with a NOT SO Popular, or frequently used saying from back in the day …..

Hip Hop Inspired, in many ways, ” KEEPING IT REAL ” ….. has been used in so many ways now, that it goes WAY Beyond, those three words …..

These days, it’s pretty clear why the saying doesn’t hold as much what ???

I guess …. ” Swag ” …. in the world we live in today.

(Excuse my mis-appropriation of the term young’ guns !!!)

Simply, because the majority of people clearly, DO NOT, keep things real, from their talk, to their actions …….

A worrying trend when you look at the fact that we are a long way down the line of human history, so, I for one, would like to think that people would recognise the value of ACTUALLY, ” Keeping It REAL “, from beginning to end……

However, there are some issues with doing so now aren’t there … ???

The threat of some kind of public law being broken, to the point where imprisonment, at the least, could come your way !!!

Like say, Irish Landlord, Fergus Wilson, check his story out.

He’s been, Keeping It WRONG, on SO MANY LEVELS … !!!!!!

A Very Wealthy, and Prominent landlord in the United Kingdom !!!

He’s kept it VERY REAL, when telling one of his letting agents to stop, ” Coloured People “, from renting his homes, which he seems to think is okay, but that’s a whole different deal !
He has denied being racist, of course, and chose to defend himself in court, where he was advised to ditch such a policy, as it is discriminatory !!!!!

Now, I was told a long time ago, better the devil, or, racist you know, than the one that you don’t !!!

Mr Wilson’s assertion, that his comment about curries stinking out his properties, is “Political Correctness gone mad”, may not actually be, that far off the mark, but hey, that’s the way these days, you gotta be careful what you say right ?!?

Unless of course, you happen to be a President, or, any other description of a world leader ???

Hmmm … and how real are they eh ???

A question for another day, but, another one is, when one of these, ” Leaders “, starts to REALLY, ” Keep It Real “, in their talk, what do the masses choose to do ?

CRUCIFY them, for exposing who they really are …

(Unless You’re Bill Clinton of course ?!?)

….. Or, as seems to be the case now, be accused, from the ladies perspective mainly, of abusing them for, being well, REAL, even if it is in some VERY SLEAZY, and Disrespectful ways …. !!!!!

Depending on where your moral compass lands though right ???

So, quickly, let me just drop a view views on these harassment cases, from HollyWOOD, cos’ NUFF WOOD, LOL …. Seems to be being, thrown about that world, as it does, Britain’s corridors of power !!!!!

Surprised, well, I have to say that it’s about time we heard some folks, ” Keep It REAL, when it comes to what goes on, in Political Offices like Whitehall, and elsewhere.

It’s clear that homosexuality isn’t alien to Politics, but the disturbing nature of quite a few MP’s, arrangements to get sex, and now, their treatment of women, does indeed, leave much to be desired.

However, back to Hollywood, as much as I will at some point be thrown under the bus for expressing this view …. but, it’s my truth, in terms of how I see these accusations.

Okay so, yeah, I have to believe that certain accusations have been dismissed firstly, by the police in certain cases, because there are instances that have come to light, that have indicated that they have done this with paedophile claims and others, over the years, however, there has to be some assessment of where these claims are coming from …..

Actors and ACTRESSES …..

AKA as …. Pretenders, or one could go as far as to say …..

PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED, Highly Paid Liars …. !!!!!

YEAH, I Said It …. LIARS ….. !!!!!!

Now, let me MAKE CLEAR, I am NOT suggesting, that every claim that has been made, is some kind of lie, however, what I am saying, is that in an industry based on ….

ElevATING the level of ATTENTION, an individual receives, I Repeat, ATTENTION, that people receive, and clearly, YEARN FOR, for their ability to again, ” PRETEND “, to be something, or, SOMEONE Else……

Well, one has to at least, question, the volume that have … ALL OF A SUDDEN, started to spring up, from here, there and everywhere, Cosby, Weinstein, Louis CK, Kevin Spacey, and a number of Politicians, to start with … ???

Have you noticed a theme with these people though ……

Well, let me point you in a few directions ….. with a few questions … ???

Poverty …. Ummmmm’ NAH …..
NONE of the ACCUSED are, some Tramp of Road !!!
A Reputation for Honesty & Integrity … Errmmm’, Note I Said POLITICIANS as well so Uh Uh.

Wealth ….. Ummmmm’ ….. Well HELL YEAH ….. !!!!!!!
Power …… Ummmmm’ ….. NO BRAINER ….. Well HELL YEAH ….. !!!!!!!

Influence ….. Well, in terms of career, all the above could certainly be said to have at least got connections to the fast lane to fame, or, a route to power … !!!!!

And THAT WORD ….

” FAME “, is a very, SIGNIFICANT one in these scenarios !!!!!

and finally, the time lapse between these TERRIBLE Things, Including RAPE, being declared, as what occurred !!!!!!

Now, as said, the victims will, in many cases state that, as previously suggested, they were NOT, taken seriously !

As said, it’s ridiculous, in my view, to think that this didn’t happen to a good set of victims, however, if my … PERSONAL SPACE, was imposed upon like that, there is NO F’ing WAY … I REPEAT …..

NO F’ING WAY….. !!!!!!

I’m gonna let that lie for 20 years, and then because of some new wave of impersonal messaging, sent via modern tech, use THAT, as a platform to wage some kind of … ” Bandwagon War “, against something, that, as claimed, was such a TERRIBLE Thing, that it DESTROYED MY LIFE, as some have suggested it has done …..

Even though ???

….. in the case of these Hollywood Victims, they not only, ” Kept MUM “, as in, “quiet”, but then, CONTINUED to work in this industry, where, as now seems to be the case, this type of behaviour is prevalent, due to the predatory nature of it’s members.

Hollywood is a very, ” Special Club “, and i’m pretty sure that women KNOW THAT, who join it, child stars get a pass, however, Mummy and Daddy of said stars, not so much !

Don’t play dumb, when you read the stories, hear the rumours, and see certain things going on …. KEEP IT REAL eh ….. ?!?

ESPECIALLY with, your children … !!!!!!

However, a quick word for those accused, as a man who, in a working environment, has been accused of sexual harassment once, here is why I hold the views I do, and can say what I have previously.

A Young Female, let’s say, tried this, ” Harassment Claim “, because she WASN’T, getting the attention she CLEARLY WANTED, from me, but when she did, it became an issue when I explained that, in her case, walking about, exposing your thong in an office, encourages such thinking in Red-Blooded, young males, who unlike Weinstein and them, are tall and muscular.

So, off she trots to her boss to give the big sob story ???

Now, him being, one of those males who adheres more to being feminine, than being manly, without question, decides to run to TOP MANAGEMENT, one of whom I had been told, was a bit of a racist, to expose my e-mails to this well, female … who, if I had flipped the script, could of accused of Harassment, due to various, more subtle ways of doing so ?!?

However, of course, My Job and Career, if such a thing was affirmed, could have been irreparably damaged, but, concede to the threat ???

Uh Uh …
NOT … THIS MAN …

I told my boss, do whatever, my position is the same as the e-mails state, fire me if they see it her way !!!

Now, one has to remember the pressure that such a claim puts on a brain, but hey, I continued to work for a while with this hanging, only to be told a week or so later, that, having read my mails, the BIG Bosses, apparently told my boss that,

“Virgil is right and to be honest, we’re glad he told her straight, so, tell him we’re dismissing her claim, and he has nothing to worry about !”

Now I get that there were a lot of males in this scenario, but hey, the first one who heard the claim, didn’t blink, before pushing it higher up the office management chain, without question !!!

So, back to the Hollywood lot, a good few of these women are older now, ad may even be seeking some attention to regain some spotlight, it’s not beyond reason to think that this could apply to some of these claimants, and, as for the guys, well, guys are probably equally, if not, more likely to keep quiet for fear of what that will say about them, let alone, the idea that another male abused them sexually, so there is more to the idea that …… Anyone …. !!!!!

…… be they, the female in my scenario, who may I note, in the same office, a year or so later, ended up working on my floor, and quickly made peace with me, as soon as I approached and suggested that we, ” Play Nice ! “.

In her case, just a bit of attention sorted her in the end.

However, there is proof that people, and, in this case, yes I mean predominantly women, can say or do things to cover their own, poor movements & choices, because it’s not been unusual to hear certain victims state that they didn’t say anything, due to the FEAR of what it might do to their career … ?!?

… which again. leads anyone with some common sense, to see that the level of … ” Apparent Abuse “, was and has been known about, and evidently, seen as acceptable within the Hollywood Ringer ….

up to now at least …..

and thus, this month’s piece, explains how I see the fraudulent manner in which, such an APPARENTLY, RIGHTEOUS expression, has been ABUSED, by more than actors and actresses, and their fraternity of FAKERS, but by, ” Road Man “, ” Gyal “, and basically, pretty much everyone who dared to run the phrase, as if they ever lived their life in it’s entirety by …

” Keeping It real ” ….

I Think NOT.

…. and the way that Evidence & Accusations keep surfacing currently, it’s pretty clear that the expression has drifted into the backwaters……

…… because ………

” Keeping It Real ” …. is being … SLAUGHTERED … !!!!!

So, take a listen,
if you think you’re righteous enough …. ?!?

” Open Season ” … Prod by Strat Carter

Well, it seemingly, isn’t currently a subject, that’s hitting the headlines, but it’s a subject that never really leaves the minds of black people ….

and, following on from my previous post, it seems that as this piece relates, we still have to be very mindful of our place, when dealing with the ….

Good ol’ ….

Boys In Blue ……

Well, these words deserve a place, way up in these ignorant feds’, who still seem to think that when they see us, we’re a target for them to aim at, as if it’s ….

Well ……

Open Season ……

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

Well folks, following on from my previous post about Fools and their Foolishness, it’s clear that Brexit’ negotiations may prove to be, a little frosty, from the EU’s perspective, but hey, Theresa May never struck me as a particularly easy woman to have to negotiate with, as she immediately reminded me of a Certain, ” Iron Lady “, by the name of Thatcher….. upon my first sight of her !!!!!!

However, there are party shifts, from members of the public, who of course are individual parties …

…. to possible, European shifts, as elections shine a light on the underlying issues of a Union that, CLEARLY was, (Never Really) …. That Unified …. ???

Or… was it … ?!?

Well, the Party does, “seem to be over”, with regard to Britain and their status amongst their European friends ….

Did I say friends … !?!

I mean …. counterparts of course !!!!

(Maybe not, quite so FRIENDLY, and ” Seem ” … being a very important word, in all the public shenanigans they feed the masses…….)

However, parties of all kinds are taking issue with Mr. Trump and his policies too, as they have been and continue to do, towards Jacob Zuma, and notably now, in Venezuela too …..

Noticing a trend folks ???

Well, Barbados has it’s political issues too, but, the people here, are a little less bothered by them, or again, are they ???

Well, much like the beginning of this poem suggests, i’ve had my fill of pretty much, ALL of these parties and partying now …..

Well, who wants to be the old man in the club eh ….. ?!?

Certainly NOT… Britain anymore, that’s for sure …. LOL ….. !!!!!!

….. and this piece takes a swipe, if a slightly, facetious one, at all these various parties, political or otherwise …..

Take a listen …….

A Few Thoughts… Before… written by Big Virge 7/11/2015

….. American voters, go to war !!!!!
or, should that be, Trump and Hilary … ???

The war, for them, is almost over … Thankfully !!!

However, it’s been a very interesting lead up to one of the most, highly anticipated results, to a Presidential Election !!!

As many keep repeating, it’s a landmark election, especially after Barack Obama’s election as the, Huh Hmmm …..

First, Black President ….

According to whose version of history you believe … ?!?
… which could now be followed by the First, female President !

In the last week, the Chicago Cubs create history by coming back from 3-1 down against the Cleveland Indians, to win their first World Series in over 100 years, only to then have the Irish Rugby Union Team, do a similar thing against New Zealand, days later, 111 years in their case !!!!! Amazingly, after the Kiwis had gone on a record breaking, 18 game winning run …. only to give it up, with a first victory, for Ireland against them !

Anyone seeing the trend, and getting a little nervous, regarding the trend ?

Well, as both an Oakland Raiders and Liverpool FC supporter, the fact that on the weekend before the election, they both, for the first time, in quite some time, top their respective divisions ….. Liverpool, of course, much more recently, than the Raiders, however, the Raiders did just beat the current, Superbowl champions !!!!!

Okay so, is this the week of upsets, as most now seem to believe that the Trumpster, will finally get, ” Trumped “, by Americas’ voting populous.

I have never believed that he couldn’t win, but, after the, again, amazing revelation of a further, FBI investigation into Hilary’s emails, and the then withdrawal of said investigation, conveniently, days before final voting, one thing that does seem realistic, is that, ” The Trumpster’ “, may well be right, when he says, that this election could be rigged, however, I would suggest that it would NEED TO BE RIGGED, for his Ignorant Ass to win … !!!!!

As certain Facebook posts have suggested, I am grateful to him, for showing us a level of truth, in terms of how, ” his type “, of … ” White American “, thinks, behaves and acts, because nobody can sit there talking about chips on black peoples’ shoulders anymore, and that prejudice, bigotry & racism, are just figments of our imaginations’ ….

…. that we are, even in 2016, STILL suffering inequalities, in how we’re treated, as if the last 12 months of US Policing hasn’t given enough credence to substantiate, such arguments … !!!!!

I have said before, and will say it again, black people need to recognise the kind of thinker, Hilary Clinton, has proven herself to be, and that, hugs with Jay Z, Queen Bey’, and support from Mr. Obama, should not indicate to them, that she has, any allegiance, or, Real Interest, in the struggles, of ……

Poor Black People !?!

Margaret Sanger is the name I will say again, and suggest, that people look for what Madame Clinton, has had to say about her.

It is also quite interesting to see the level of Global Stock Market Activity, that indicates that, Mr. Trump’s arrival in the Oval Office, would seemingly have HUGE ramifications, for world economies and currency values … !!!!!

Nothing to turn your nose up at !

I care not, who they vote in, from the perspective of having no particular wish to return to the US, in any kind of a hurry, however, as has been the case with Brexit’, I do recognise the importance of this election.

Trumps’ references in the last couple of days, to a Brexit’ type, shock victory, is NOT … that far fetched, if you log & think on the aforementioned events, however, Hilary winning in conjunction with Theresa Mays’ arrival at number 10 Downing Street, may also not be quite so coincidental … ???

It’s really gonna be, quite the night !!!

Will all the negative stuff about Trump, be enough to get Hilary in, or will her apparent indiscretions, via her email accounts, amongst other things, be what swings the voters minds ???

White America, in my humble opinion, are not so far from being prepared to let Donald make … ” America Great Again ” …

or should that be … KKK again … ?!?

Just a question, not an accusation, although it’s clear who the KKK want to win … !!!!!

So, many things going on, including a judicial decision that has stirred the Brexit pot, across the water …. leaves me thinking that, nothing in this election for US President is quite as it seems ….. or beyond happening ….

So, for now, i’m gonna leave it that, as voting begins to decide the winner,
and I listen to a young black male from America, in a documentary about the US Election, explain how he thinks that, Liberalism does not serve black people well …. and how that should seemingly, outweigh, Donalds’ rather inflammatory comments about race ….

…. to then listening to some white supremacists, who then throw the curve ball, that indicates that, voting for Clinton, means a vote to continue what America has been going through for the last 30 years, and a continuance of the status quo ….. which for the feminists, railing on about Trump, also affirms her standing alongside a confirmed, Liar and Cheater, who showed ….

What exactly … ???

A TOTAL, lack of respect for his wife ….

It is amazing to hear people speak about this election, as if it’s solely about, upholding, ” American Values ” …. whatever they are … ???

One has to wonder what will happen …. and how this subsequently, will affect the world …..

Which is why, before we get to finally, know the score ….

I’m dropping a few ….
of my thoughts …. before ….

Bless Up People ….

The Virge out of here …..
for now ………………………………..

Election Week, so, a good time to speak on … ” Cliques ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge …

So, after last month, speaking on the lack of certain things, this month I speak on something, we could probably do with a few less of … !!!!!

Now, I never really was one for, fitting into them …..

However, of course, like most young men, I ran with a crew or two, but, always felt that the dynamic held, hidden agendas, ulterior motives, and invariably, a lot of suckers and, lying Motha’ F’kers …..

Not much has changed in my opinion, from artistry, to a great many things in this world …..

So, for this subject, even though I wrote this, basically, ten years ago, it’s content is pertinent and relevant, especially as it’s been quite a year for the exposure of many of these collectives, The BREXIT Cliques, JOKERS … !!!!!

The FIFA Cliques, of the seemingly, money grabbing, embezzling, deceitful members, of it’s hierarchy ….

The Drug Cheat Cliques, and their cohorts ….

The … INCREDIBLY Deceitful, Ryan Lochte, Clique … Tut Tut Tut ….

The Paedophile Cliques of the BBC and seemingly, much further afield in the, apparently, not so … ” Uni ted ” … Kingdom ?!?

(Again -JOKERS !?!)

The EU Clique ….

The … Of course, “Black Lives Matter” ….
and …. ” ALL Lives Matter ” … Cliques …

ISIS, Terrorist Cliques, and the cliques that, THREATEN, Western Freedoms & Liberties…. whatever they are ….

Which of course, brings me to … The Police …

A Clique who work to preserve our freedoms and safety, well, if you believe that, then you are probably part of the Trump, and ….

Hold on … Wait a minute, Clinton Cliques too … !!!!!!

So, for most people, it would seem that, they fit into one or t’other of these cliques ….

I’m happy to be part of a … “very small clique” … !!!

Well, a virtually, non-existent one, who wants to use artistry to expose these Fukwits …. for what they are … SHEEP … or, better defined, SHEOPLE’, who bleat, more than they, claim their …

INDIVIDUALITY ….

So, as we are in the heat of US, Presidential Election week, in the, again, CLEARLY ….

NOT SO …. Uni ted …..
States of America …..

Due to their, Democrat & Republican Cliques,
(Both being, JOKERS who embrace the use of … BIG GUNS, BOMBS and, BIGGER EGOS !!!)

This piece would seem to fit perfectly with much that we’ve seen in 2016 …. and sadly, throughout, human history …

” Open Season ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge …

Hmmmm ….

Well, Olympics or not !!!!!

COME ON Usain …. !!!!!!

Certain subjects, Nah get dropped …. !!!!!

The cops and this whole …
Black Lives Matter Phenomena ….

Well,

Opinions are a plenty fa sure … !!!!!

So, of course, I have a few ………….

However, this piece was written soon after, the ….. (not so much mentioned) ….. Walter Scott EXECUTION, by some extraordinarily, ” Trigger Happy “, cop !?!?!

Anyhow, much surrounds these events, like different attitudes that come to light from people, of course, from races not directly affected by these horrendous killings of people, who, innocent or not, don’t get a chance to explain themselves to anybody but ….

Well …..

BULLETS, or the apparently, ” Humane Hands “, of law enforcement officers …. !! ? !!

Crazy ish’ people ….. ?!?

…. and of course, London now increasing it’s armed police presence, coincidentally, days before an incident in Russell Square, and a Black Lives Matter protest, that affected people trying o get to Heathrow, for a number of personal reasons on Friday morning ….

NOT …. !!!

…. the subtlest way to get your message heard, but, it has drawn media attention, so, England ISN’T, quite the bed of tolerance and unified thinking, as has been so readily reported, and argued …. since the arrival of people of different races, to basically, every arena in which the media presents itself, sports and EVEN, politics, so, things are fine right … ?!?

Weellllllll …..

Maybe not, if todays protest suggests there to be things, to be concerned about ???

The subsequent, television coverage, had an interview was with an activist, who was an articulate young lady, who was explaining that, although killings of the style in the US, are honestly, not so prevalent ….. in the UK …..

Smaller country, different laws ….. etcetera etcetera ….

Convictions in the instances of police inefficiency, which results in loss of black lives, are basically, non-existent, and have been, for a considerable time now ….

So, more armed police will result in what, exactly, less gun play … ???

I think NOT, but, time will tell ……

and one final thing here, with regard to policing globally, i’m talking the extreme cases of loss of life, but, let’s not pretend that general interactions with police are being run with the professionalism, and, public courtesies, that people should expect from those who apparently …. SERVE US …. ?!!!?

The ideal of how people are stereotyped by colour, also lends itself to a very subtle, but effective, form of white superiority and control ….

So …. do ….. ???

White Glass Ceilings exist still …. ???

…. in the hierarchies of these arenas where people of varying, darker skinned races, are now seemingly, “Fitting in”, quite nicely, and doing good things …….

Just questions … ???

However, there are divisions within those same, different shades, that aren’t always so readily brought to light, because of again, the veneer of … well ….

” Getting Along ” ……

Well, as a man who has grown with all types of races, nationalities & colours, which applies to the ladies too, there are certain mixtures that aren’t so common ….

Not ReeeeeEALLY’ …

…. but people just play it down, because sticking to ones’ own, is the way to go …..

Really … ???

… with so many varieties in the world to choose from …

Not everyman wants a … BIG BOOTY, or, fair-skinned, SAME SKINNED … !!! … ting’, to get his groove on with, as with the ladies now clearly.

So, don’t, for one second.

…. think that words you hear, indicate a man who does not see the positive effects of integration, from business, to personal interactions now, however, things in essence, remain at the core, the same …. and do need to be, i’d say, ” Re-Arranged “, just a bit ……

and one of the things at the top of my list, is the subject of the lyrics in this poem …..

So, as the Olympics get in full swing, with it’s opening ceremony today in Rio …..

There are a few things that are … Open …
right about now,

So, I warn you, NOW …

DO NOT ….

…. press play, unless you’re ready to deal with REAL subject matter …. that’s leaving lives SHATTERED …. !!!!!

While …..

#BlackLivesMatter …… ???

Well what can one say about recent issues of the badge and gun variety eh folks … !!?!!

Well, I really don’t know these days, apart from hypocrisy & over-reaction are INDEED …

ONE HELL OF A DRUG … !!!!
to take the words from Rick James ….

An ambiguous statement from me, about much that sticks very closely to ambiguity

but, to me, it is really quite CLEAR & SIMPLE …

The Po’ Po’ are dealing in a bunch of it, and black folks ….
YUP, you there running with it too, as well as,
receiving THE BRUNT OF IT … !!?!!

A lot of things get said, AFTER … DISTURBING Events … !!!!!!

Rather than ensuring, we, CONSTANTLY, work with things that prevent
unnecessary events & deaths ….

Okay, nuff said.

I gine’ let another man represent, pon’ such subjects, for a sec ….

This is a tune that’ll make you reflect
whilst making you move and nod ya head … !!!!!

Nuff Respek’ to the brothers ….

Inity Fyah & Strat Carter ….

You never know, one day they might do a full project ???

But this fuh’ sure, I think y’all should check ….

“Poets Corner” … An Interesting show folks ….

Some discussion and verse, and quite a bit more …….

Worth a listen people …..

NO EXPOSURE …. !!!

ENJOY ……..
