” Subject Matter ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

So folks …..

Here we are in 2018 …. !!!!!

and this is how it starts …..

Government Shutdown in President Trump’s … GREAT AMERICA …

Remember the mans’ slogan people … !!!!!

Racial slurs of a quite extreme nature regarding a certain, Meghan Markle from the partner, Uh Hmmm …… of UKIP’s current leader, Henry Bolton.

Now this is the woman he left his wife, Tatiana Smurova, a good ol’ British name, for……

Some topless model, Jo Marney, who probably should reserve her commentary on people, as she is hardly, the hottest white chick that ever walked the earth.

It’s incredible how they seem so deluded about their, white whatever, and by ” They ” ……

YES i’m including, President Trump, who clearly had, or maybe, has no issue with sleeping with Porn Pro’s, like Stormy Daniels no less, with her Big Fake Titties, and, flat old butt ….

Now don’t get me wrong, she’s a damn site better than Boltons bit on the side, but, the idea that these people can speak in such derogatory ways about foreign people and their nations, in the case of Trump, and just about any immigrants, EXCEPT THEMSELVES, in the case of the UKIP faithful, who, like Mr. Trump, vehemently denies any form of racist attitude ….. ?!?!?

Hmmmm … well, let’s move on, and of course, as a new year begins, money matters become a hot topic, although, right about now, not so many appear to be flossing quite like they used to.

Barbados seems reluctant in an election year, to resolve a DISGUSTING, Sewage issue on it’s South Coast, which has apparently drawn attention from British, Canadian and US Tourist Boards, who are advising tourists that it’s not quite so much of a Caribbean Island Paradise getaway, right now !

So, moving on, we have an abundance of Gay / Whatever issues, from poor old Ginuwine’ being accused of being Trans-Phobic ….

WHATEVER The Fuck that means …. !!?!!

I guess i’m Trans phobic too ….

Maybe of being Trans-Warped into a world where people who are straight are vilified, for merely expressing a preference to stick to what they like, rather than jump on the LGBT Train, to make the poor little whatevers’, feel comfortable.

This leads me to Mr. Chappelle’s, ” Equanimity “, stand up show, which drew some attention for his LGBT routine, rather than his Emmett Till, race / immigration segment, which was not only a very serious reminder of the issues of black people, in America and across the globe, but also a very clever piece of stand-up comedy !

Now I def’ have my issues with much of Daves’ past material, however, one thing that can’t be denied is his comedy genius, when directed appropriately, but as he would probably say,

“Hey, i’m just f’ing around, and why the fuck are people so sensitive ?”

Indeed ……

As he relates stories of his varying issues with audience members, at his live shows, regarding everything from inter-racial relationships, to the whole taboo subject of well, not falling in line with the pink parade, it does seem increasingly ridiculous, the levels of importance being placed on a recently formed movement, whilst the struggles of black folks, are still demeaned, and in fact, ridiculed now, as some form of satiric attempt to wake racists up.

Hmmm …..

YEAH ALRIGHT …..

…. and this leads me to my viewing of Dear White People, the series, written by Justin Simien who has affirmed that the main character, who is a nerdy journo wannabee’, who happens to have his sexuality issues. Issues which are resolved by him affirming that he’s into men, underpinning the issue of racism on college campuses, especially those that have been quite open about having, black face parties of recent.

Well, I have to say, perhaps a little less, freaky, sexual stuff, and more grit regarding the race issue, would have been nice to see, especially in Trumps America !

Instead, what we get is an abundance of quite, crass humour, about a subject that, in this day and age of racist outbursts, from leaders, actors, sports people ….. etcetera etcetera, this Netflix show could of been more than some attempt to give white folks something, to dismiss as being, light-hearted fodder for them to be able to say, they see the problems we face and get it now ….

Something that, I very much doubt that they’ll get from the show if they got past the first couple of episodes, which quickly shift from race to sexuality, and back again, within a 30 minute show, attempting to cover college life.

Suffice to say, much like Django before it, it just shows me how differently black folks from America, and those from places like Barbados, now think.

It’s quite worrying, to say the least, when it comes to what’s important, regarding matters of racism, and our part in the whole allowance of it, in todays world.

Hiding behind comedy and media, is not what the debate needs, it needs to get REAL, and stop diluting the discussion, by placing it alongside Trans-whatev… issues, as if, as Chappelle puts it, they are the Olympic Champs of suffering & oppression, when it’s quite clear the level of power they possess, and have had for a considerable time, even if they were behind closet doors, wielding it.

This leads me to Molly’s Game, Chastain and Idris, going at it, to represent the trials and tribulations of skier, Molly Bloom, who, essentially ran the biggest, underground poker games of recent times, that had the likes of Tobey Maguire, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck, amongst it’s participants, alongside Russian Mafia and some of the richest men in the world, as she states in an interview with Ellen, one of whom lost 100 Mill one night, and came back and paid his debt the next day !!!!!

CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY ….. !!!!!!

Elba and Chastain are EXCELLENT, in my humble opinion, even though Idris’s character is fictional, their scenes together, are something to behold.

Amazingly, Bloom’s story seems to stick to the subject, rather than throw in random subject matter, to forward agendas.

It’s a straight up film about a very crazy passage in this womans’ life, suffice to say I really enjoyed it, as I did the new Star Wars, apart from it being Disneyfied’, a little too much, which would also be my only issue with the new Thor.

A Very Entertaining ride, but for something as dark as Ragnarok, the end of times, it did lean a little too much perhaps, towards being light hearted and funny …..

So, in assessing how things seem to be heading this year, I think this post is as appropriate a piece as any, to start this year with, because it was inspired by what I feel is the weakening of material in many areas of entertainment now, in some vain attempt to, not offend.

Well, I for one, will never stop pushing that button, that apparently, President Trump, and his North Korean nemesis, keep claiming they’ll push, if the other doesn’t behave.

Well, let’s hope they’re just waving their respective genitalia around for show, and don’t end up blowing holes in this world, because as this poem suggests, I think we have enough that currently need filling ……

There’s so much more that could be included in this post, however, for now, this month’s subject …. is ….

” Know Your Place ” (Explicit) … written & performed by Big Virge

Okay folks, so another month and another load of very strange stuff going on !

The whole NFL kneeling situation has got very testy, with the President becoming quite colourful in his use of language, regarding the Kaepernick followers, who, in all honesty, do seem to have jumped on board his ship, a little late, in my opinion.

The increased rhetoric from a President who could clearly care less about, what opinions people have, from the press, to his own staff, and of course, people of colour, has, all of a sudden, even got players, outside of the NFL kneeling as well now, as if that’s gonna change the attitudes of patriots and racists alike …. I think not.

Hertha Berlin players took a knee today, in an apparent stand of ….. ???

Oops ….. ???

KNEE of solidarity with the NFL players, who are wanting a change of mentality, towards what exactly ?

Flag waving patriotism, National Anthems, Police Brutality, or the basic, racism that appears to be, a standard, for how people of colour are treated, generally by, fairer complexioned folk.

Now this, “People of Colour” Phrase, is one I cannot relate to, as firstly, as the old joke goes, nobody shows more colours than white folks when they show us shades of blue red, brown and ever other colour under the sun !!!!!

However, NOT all people of colour feel liks’, quite like BLACK People, but yet, Chloe Bennett, sorry, Wang, from Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, is now suggesting that the level of racism in Hollywood & the UNITED States, affected her ability to use her actual name !!!!!

All of these scenarios link themselves to the idea of yup, you guessed it ….

Knowing Ya RASSHOLE Place people !!!!!!

I mean, the NFL thing has got a bit silly now, and the players do have rather large amounts of money to enter, political arenas, if they want to don’t they ???

…. instead of facing head injuries, etcetera, that could leave them worse off than a police beating !!!!!

Well, maybe not, but …..

Black folks getting their noses out of joint, need to check themselves, and recognise their role in affecting change, in a world which is essentially, governed, by the spoils from systems that, support the sentiments of anthems, like those of the US and the UK ….. a la …

Rule Britannia ….

English folks will apparently, never ever be slaves eh ?

Yeah right !!!!

Similarly, the girls are on the charge again, Bill Cosby having, kinda sneaked off the radar because, OH NO, A Big WHITE, Hollywood producer has been harassing, multiple actresses, over an extensive period of time …. basically being, his time as an Exec … !!!!!!

Shock Horror …. SURELY NOT ….. !!!!!!

Okay so, here we go, us terrible men, and oh wait, no-one believes women when they claim sexual abuse, which is one of the reasons he has got away with his, ” Alleged “, deviant behaviour around women………

Okay so, that means we should believe them now ???

Calm yourselves folks, it’s just a question ?

Harsh as it may seem, how does a little man like Weinstein, get away with causing so much pain to these women, who, so many have looked up to, for what exactly ?

Well, before I get the feminists on my ass, you ladies need to think it through, and decide whether, so much sympathy should be being handed out to women who clearly, seemed to know their place before……

Keeping their mouths shut, for jobs and money, when maybe they should of been opening them as much as other parts of their body have been ….. to protect the sisterhood, that they claim outweighs any amount of pay ……. or job security …… ???

One to think on ….

Theresa May allegedly wants ignorance and intolerant individuals to, ” Know Their Place “, in Britain…….

Huh Hmm, the less said about that, the better ….. and of course, I have to mention the Girl Guides apparently becoming, Boy Scouts ???

…. which has clearly stirred some, considerable consternation ….

Now, other than Bruce ??? Caitlin ???

I dunno …… that Jenner Fella, being named woman of the year, last year, in certain peoples eyes …. this has to be one of the most absurd things of the last few months …. ?!?!?

The world has indeed gone, ” PC Crazy “, as well as completely irrational, on so many levels now !?!

Let the girls be girls, and the boys be boys eh ….

and on that note….

Come on people, like this piece says ….

” Know Your Place ” … !!!!!

” Hardcore ” … Prod by Strat Carter (Explicit)

Okay so, back to some music from Virges’ World ….

and somehow, when applying these words to the world at large, as it’s currently running ….

Well, Mr. Trump is …. AS EVER, going on in a Hardcore Manner, in terms of his language, and attacks, on everyone from Steph Curry, to Colin Kaepernick, and those who’ve suddenly realised that maybe just maybe, Colin has a point !

It’s easy to jump on the bandwagon when a man of The Presidents’ ilk, runs some Extraordinarily, INFLAMMATORY Language, and attitudes in the public domain, as North Korea’s leadership would certainly attest to.

As for the weather, well if you haven’t been paying attention, HARDCORE Damage has been wreaked by Hurricane after Hurricane, and yes, the region of the Caribbean is still in the midst of them, so, don’t think that it’s all good as we leave what is deemed as being, the Hurricane Season.

A little more humility and thought, rather than, hardcore reactions …..
might just be the order of the day, for a while, but in the meantime, My Hardcore vibes, with the handy work on production of Mr. Strat Carter, are a little less disturbing, if, none the less worthy of the title …..

Take a listen …….

” I Go ” … A poem written & performed by Big Virge

So folks, another month of 2016 gone, and we approach the end of the year, and the beginning of a new one, that will, as ever, be filled with many comings and goings …..

Obama goes … as Trump comes to the Whitehouse, Brexit’, well, who knows whether it’s coming or going, and if so, exactly how it will be effected … ???

Today, the indication is that there will be a new Italian PM, in 2017 ???

A lot of footballers are coming to the table, to expose the incredible levels of apparent, player abuse by British coaches !!!!!

Right wing movements across Europe, bar Austria, of all places, are on the go, and seemingly, on the rise …..

(A third of Austria’s populous voting for a Far Right group, should not though, be overlooked !)

Racism is definitely on the go, as ever, and immigration may well be the next thing to go, in terms of borders being open, to those escaping Syria in particular, but, I think that this is an excuse to keep more than Syrians, or more importantly, Muslims out of Europe …. and if Trump has his way, out of America too …..

Fidel gone, so who knows where Cuba will end up, in the coming months and years ???

Oh and just one quick mention of the case that has, somehow, found it’s way to being a mistrial … ?!?

…. that of, the shooting of Walter Scott by a certain, Officer Slager, as described in the piece, Open Season, which I posted recently …..

Looks like Officer Slagers’ case will be, yet another, to go on the list of cases against the police, that have left the victims family without any sense of justice, or respect for the fact, that, their loved one was essentially, gunned down in cold blood, by one charged with the duty to … ” Serve & Protect ” …

YEAH RIGHT … !!!!!

So many things going on …..

I figure that it’s time for me to explain and show, some of the places that I have been and will continue to …. Go …….

So, here are some of the places that ……..

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 ………………………………..

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

Yes Yes people ….. !!!

Well, it’s time to get … SERIOUS … once again people !

This subject of … ” Double Standards ” …. could be a book, rather than a poem, but, ya know sometimes, it takes something to happen in life, to inspire such a work, as the one I now post …..

To give you some background to where this has come from …..

A White guy I know, yes that’s right, I said it ….

He is WHITE, was showing himself to be supportive of UKIP / EDL, type ideals, in reference to Englands’, rising Islamophobia, and general distrust of immigrants, unless of course, they’re Aussies, South Africans, or Kiwis, and I don’t mean Maoris or Aborigines either ….

This individual, who used to live behind my London home, upon seeing that I actually take these matters, which of course, encompass British Racism, VERY SERIOUSLY !

…. took it upon himself, after referring to some kind of friendship, we apparently had, which was a figment of his Very, CLEARLY, vivid imagination…………

….. to drop the kind of lines, that, define the hypocrisy, and …

” Double Standards ”

…. that are prevalent in, Far Too Many, White Brits, especially when it comes to their,

” Oh So PRECIOUS ” …. Cun’ …

Ooopps, typo ….. COUNTRY !!!!!!!

…… So, he then took it upon himself, to advise me that he wasn’t aware that I was Englands’ version of Martin Luther King, and that I seemed quite happy to be in England, whilst I could live there & get paid … !!!!!

Well, as I then, quickly, had to explain to him, I would of left long ago, had my mother not needed me, due to my father leaving her, upon finding out that she had Multiple Sclerosis, which, this white boy should of been aware of, due to the …. VERY CLEARLY MARKED … DISABLED PARKING BAY … in front of our home, that he used to walk past, to go for a drink in the pub next to my house !!!!!

He then chose to apologise for his … ” Oversight ” …

TOO LATE !!!

Thus, this poem is, not only, a response to his rather, fast mouth, that clearly opens, before his brain pathways, allow any thought waves to be received !

It’s also a message to everyone, firstly, the black actors, complaining about not getting their trinkets for being, paid liars, by their white, puppet masters ?!?

Now, I know people don’t like to think these things, but logically, what are actors exactly ?

Well, let’s look at slaves, for a sec, shall we ?

They would of been, and in certain cases, still are directed, as to when to do things, and, more importantly, when they could, or should speak right ?

So, exactly how does that differ to having a director, who could quite conceivably, be a black, house negro, dictating his masters wishes, (being Hollywood), to the lesser, black slaves right, (The Actors) ?

So, how does it differ, well today ….

It’s the … LEVEL of PAY, that they now receive, right ……..

Think about it ……

Now, i’m not saying people should stop acting, or, making TV Programmes or films, because I like a good performance, like the next person, however, people need to recognise what they are watching, a person presenting a facade, to make you buy into the act they present, to make you believe, they are something, they are NOT !!!!!

Sound familiar at all people ???

I think it probably does for most of you, from friends, to partners, to politicians, leaders and business associates, and ESPECIALLY ….. ENTERTAINERS, who spend much of their lives, in front of cameras, or, behind microphones !!!!!

So, be they white or black, as Danny DeVito recently said, they all work for a rather, ” Elite Club “, of racists, in a country that has founded itself, on acts of Terrorism, against people of colour, from the moment they, as ……

Wait for it …………….

IMMIGRANTS …. !!!!!!

…. went and STOLE land, to claim for their own, to then, import black slaves, to labour for them, to profit in ways, that, set up legacy of … well …

I’d say ….. ” Double Standards ” ……

Let’s not forget the Oregon situation, and how it’s being handled by the police, regarding, FEDERAL LAWS … !!!!!!

…. that are seemingly, being BROKEN … !!!!!!

…. by a set of well, for want of a better phrase, gun toting, trailer park, rednecks, as opposed to the way the police handled the citizens of Baltimore & Ferguson, whose vindication for their behaviour, was due to the loss of life, NOT LAND, or the rights to use …… Again ……

STOLEN LAND !!!!!!

Oh and one last thing, one of the … BIGGEST … !!!!!!

Double Standards ….

…. that seems to see, little sign of changing, is the attitude of black people, towards black people who have, ” The Minerals “, to speak out against the system, that they claim, is still oppressing them ….

…. and is responsible for their lot !!!

Well, i’m not foolish enough to think that, it has had, no effect !

However, if the mere sound of a black voice speaking the truth about it, FRIGHTENS their arse, to the point where they immediately, show you that,

” You should be careful what you say, because they will come for you ! ”

The double standard they live by, may well be the one that they then quote, as being the reason any black who has done so previously, ends up dead, invariably in, dubious circumstances …… ?!?!?

Well, if they have to stand, pretty much, alone, it’s no surprise that in 2016, we are still making, petty stands, to gain a yard, to be driven back three …..

The COWARDICE, Yeah I said it … !!!

COWARDICE …. !!!!!!

… and, inability to, TRULY UNIFY as … A MOVEMENT !!!!!!

…. makes it pretty easy for the powers that be, to continue to do, what they’ve now been doing for Centuries, to live and maintain the double standards that they, not only live by, but the double standards that the masses live by, that, in the case of black people, can leave us dead, or fighting each other, or worse still, fighting over fame and fortune, rather than, fighting for equality as well as social & spiritual development, that helps us to grow as a unified people, who stand together, to ensure that the legacy of slavery, does not allow our lives to be taken and then deemed by the law, to be done so, with impunity ….

and more importantly, to stop white guys like the one who inspired this, running their chops, as if we should’t run ours when they get found out to be continuing with the very same wicked actions, that defend their …….

“Double Standards” …….

Well, my mind and body are neither penned, or, dead yet, but if speaking the truth is the cause of either, occurring in my future, well, as I said to a black man here in Barbados who, upon hearing a track of mine, exhibited the same attitude I spoke about above,

Remember ….

TRUE CREATIVITY, does not cower into a corner due to FEAR, and if it does, it’s simply not REAL …

and like the title of the poem states, stands buy …. ” Double Standards ” …..

You have been WARNED !

This is for : Stephen Lawrence, Christopher Alder, Anthony Walker, Trayvon Martin, their families, and all the others who have suffered, or, lost their life due to police, racism, or the racists who take pride in using the colour of a persons skin, to justify taking life !!!

So, do yourself the favour of NOT Listening, if The Truth, FRIGHTENS You, or, offends you, to the point of some, ignorant reaction …..

which probably proves that you also live by ….

Double Standards !!!!!!

Okay …. Rant Over …. !!!!!!!

Now, only click play if your … HARD ENOUGH, as the Brits’ like to say okay ……. !!!!!

One.
