” I’m Used To Them Now ” … Prod by Strat Carter

Well folks,

It’s that time again, and after the weekend I’ve had, this is the perfect tune to drop ….

It truly is incredible how fast some people can be online, or in text, with their chat !

Particularly, these white folks who only find fault in things that they disagree with, in terms of ones use of expression.

Especially, when it doesn’t fit in with their …

“ Lily White Lives “ …..

They seem to only be able to deal with, “ White Angst “, regarding social issues and the manner in which they are directing the modern world.

I’ve had it from so called black friends too !!!!

…. being told that I was CRAZY, when I was dealing with my mother, when she was extremely close to death ???

However, when people contact you, out of the blue, for a favour, but then get into the type of political discussion, where they then defend the likes of Theresa May, and the UK, in the wake of recent events, like The Grenfell Fire, Brexit’ and The Windrush, “ Hostile Environment Stuff “ …

It truly is amazing how offended they get, when someone, especially a black person, explains to them why we might not have sympathy for people within the political arenas of today, and the past incarnations of it !

So, within 10 texts, I went from the guy to ask for a favour, to a guy with A PROBLEM !?!

Indeed I do, when it comes to individuals, who have blinkers on, when it comes to acknowledging the legacy of colonially driven ideals, spread by the British.

So, therefore, as usual, want to pass the buck & throw stones at other houses, who have followed the British Model, to divert from the fact that Britain is undoubtedly, one of the most Racist places in the world to live !

NOT because of OVERT ….

But …..

COVERT Acts of Racism !!!

…. Then of course, you have these white folks who’ve spent time in Africa, have money, travel loads, and then think that because they are ingesting the thoughts of black people, who have embraced their systems of governance, that they can direct your attention to things that avail a less ANGRY and BITTER position, regarding certain aspects of today’s world, it irks some, fa sure !!!!!

However, I must firstly, thank these two individuals for inspiring my pen to get hot this weekend, but more importantly, as this track shows,

Explain that, actually, it’s all good because ………..

” What Does It REALLY, Mean To You … ?!? ” Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, what does one write about in this world currently eh people ???

Well of course, the political realm has an abundance of disturbing movements, that have quite a few people getting, well …..

…. as irate as people get these days, in some online petition, or in some public display of disrespect, for those who are supposedly, representing their best interests.

Not so much huh folks …..

Donald continues to wage war with himself presumably, which then funnels it’s way down to his minions, and they in turn are turning against the very man who, when they were being paid by and kept in his fold, didn’t seem to have a negative word to say about their President …..

Hmmm, let me move on …………

So of course, here in Bim’, people are awaiting the election that many seem to hope, will remove Good old Freundel, for what, sorry, who … ???

…. who knows …. ???

…. but the corruption discussion never seems to be too far away from Bajan Lips, which leads me those, sinking ships ….

or boats, like The Windrush ….

Uh Hmmm …. Excuse me ….

EMPIRE Windrush’ … !!!!!

…. whose occupants on that famed day of June 22nd, 1948, seem to have been treated as, hmmm, how does the saying go, ” less than being human “, by the Home Office, under Theresa May’s guidance !!!

Now this evening, I heard some interesting rhetoric, via The Beeb’, that showed how mistakes were made, even in the accusations being levelled.

Ol’ JC …. Mr. Corbyn, for those who don’t know, attacked The Prime Minister for being involved in the decision to basically discard the papers of those who needed them, to verify their legitimacy of becoming a fully fledged, British Citizen !!!!

SHOCK HORROR !!!!

The British treating black people like the dirt of the shoes, that they’ve been wearing, as they tread through shit ….. !!!!!

Never …. ???

” No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs “, signs ….

…. being just one of the things these same migrants, (plus a few stowaways) from the Caribbean, had to face, upon arriving in the, let’s not forget, ” Motherland “, that was to show appreciation for Caribbean Peoples’ loyalty to Her Majesty, etcetera etcetera …

Blah Blah Blah ….

So now people are getting on poor ol’ Theresas’, Bruk’ Down back, give the woman a break, because the apparent truth is that the decision to do this heinous thing, was actually taken under the Labour Government that preceded the Tories …. ???

Huh .. rewind … !!!!!

The Labour, Leftist, Socialist, equality for all, supporters, would sanction such an act ???

NEVER …. !?!

Could this possibly mean that an actual change of national leadership ….

DOESN’T … actually represent change …. ?!?

I hate to say it, but didn’t Donald say something similar in regards to Hilary getting into power …..

One thing people have to admit is that President Trump, has certainly done things differently, even to The Bushes, who lost one of theirs this month.

Well, we live, we die, it is what it is, but I was thinking she deserves some thanks for giving us Jeb and GW, I mean hey, at least she didn’t give us Donald eh ???

It’s just madness, plain and simple, but at the end of this, there are people who have lost jobs, people who are being denied health care in their old age, people being separated from their families, the threat of deportation for others, which has of course, resulted in an apology coming from the beleaguered PM, to Caribbean Leaders.

One of whom being, Jamaica PM, Andrew Holness, who basically, immediately accepted her apology on behalf of Jamaica, saying that he believes, ” The Right Thing is being done at this time ! “.

The less said about that response, the better for me I guess, but it’s all good again, now the mistake … I Repeat …. MISTAKE ….. has been acknowledged, and will be rectified.

I mean, how do you do that though, really ???

Well, i’ll leave you to ponder that …..

Finally, leading to the piece attached to this post, Cuba has finally removed the Castro name from it’s offices of power, well, pushed it to the side, whilst new leader, Miguel Diaz Canel takes charge.

So, what does this mean for Cuba, and in particular it’s US Relations, well, it’s clear that the tight strings that were in place, have already been loosened somewhat by Raul, his predecessor.

However, President Trump is hardly likely to build on what B.O. O’Boomer, started, but who knows ?

He seems very changeable currently, from North Korea to Russia, but the Russia / Syria madness, has brought the old Trumpster’, out to play, along with Theresa May, The French, and anyone else who cares to wage war on Mr. Putin, President Assad, and chemical warfare that has been killing volumes in Syria ….

So ….

Who gave the initial order to use these weapons ?

Are there even, chemical weapons in Syria ? (Humour Me …)

Did The Syrians engineer them ?

Did Russia ?

Should anyone else interfere … ???
… and therein lies the BIG QUESTION ???

This seems to be a civil war, and a revolt against Assad, who seems have to earned the ire of The Brits, which in turn, leads to Trump etcetera etcetera, you get where it’s going ….

Well if you don’t, don’t worry, I think most people who, at least have, a sense of the woes of the world, have just about had their fill of it, and are just focussing on their lives and their loved ones.

Fair enough ….

However, turning a blind eye to these things is unwise in my opinion, because, small as they may be for most, revolutions of all kinds are occurring, just look at Starbucks and Applebies, for ridiculous examples …..

Hardly the type of revolution, that I think the world needs, but hey, it’s a start, so as I finish this post, i’ll leave with this question, as you click play and take a listen ….. think on this ……

In a world so CLEARLY, Corrupted and filled with injustices …..
If you had to start one …..

What Does It REALLY, mean to you ?
