“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.

And so, the Fukry’ begins … written by Big Virge 23/11/2015

So, off on my travels to, far away lands, but wait ….

Oh Noooooo …. Paris attacks and the Terrorism Hoopla, begins …. !!!!!

Well, I am now able to edit what I started to write in November, due to an enormity of media rhetoric about the terrorism of differing kinds, in Paris, Gatwick, Colorado, San Bernardino, Leytonstone, in London, and, of course, the Presidential Election campaign for 2016, with DT …. The Trumpster’, running his gums about anything and everything, to garner attention, and I dare say, to stir up controversy, that will not only garner him support, but also, some vitriol, that will keep his name in the news, which i’m sure, in his mind, will aid his campaign to run America ….

…. but …. before all that

After plane parking issues in Bim’, it seems that The USA, in this case, Miami, is holding landed planes, for no apparent reason ???

One has to wonder whether this is due to the recent, Paris Situation ?

Well, it’s hard to believe that it isn’t, in some way, due to recent events across the water !?!

I had booked my trip essentially, some time before the bombing, and wouldn’t of changed my plans because of it, but, here is where the effects of said, ” Paris Incident ” …. would seem to be, already taking their toll on the … Oh So Righteous …. US of A !!!!!

God blessed right ?!?

Well obviously, not so much that visitors can get in and out of the airport they land in, without delays, where little to nothing is conveyed to passengers, as to why ?!?

Of course, Miami, is a good spot for illegals to try coming into America, but for crying out loud !!!!!

If the country is God Blessed, then surely they shouldn’t be so worried about a few illegals, who, with the Holy blessing, that America has in it’s back pocket, would surely not be given such a blessing, if they were terrorists right ???

I’m being trite !!!!

Innocent people are dying, excuse me, being terrorised, murdered & killed …. !!!!!

Hmmm … sound like anything that has been going on in America, to seemingly, a pre-dominance of black folks, at the hands of Government backed, gun tooting police, who, if they can’t shoot ya, just choke men to death !!!!!!

Okay, some who were doing things they maybe, shouldn’t of been, but hey, these things happen everyday right, from street corners to the corridors of power right …. ???

Alright then, moving on ……

If … Intelligence, is supposedly going to high alert levels, well,
bloody well act like it … !!! … and let people know what’s going on !!!!!

No word from the captain, just that we’re being held due to there being, no space for our plane to park at the gate that should of been free !!!!

Hmmmm …. funny how the same issue seems to have been on repeat for the flights ahead of us !!!!!

As for the usual line of ..,. ” Not wanting to panic people … “, well, it certainly doesn’t stop, media outlets from doing it, as soon as any form of ” apparent ” …. attack, is made by, ” Islamic Fundamentalists “, even if the facts have not been, fully established ?!?

It’s Friday night and I for one, for a change, would really like to get to customs, so that I can enjoy my stop in Miami !!!!!

Well finally, some NINETY minutes after arriving, it seems that, all is well, and we are allowed off, however, it is clear that quite a few passengers have been delayed long enough for them to have missed their connecting flights, one of whom, happened to be, Ex- West Indies, International Cricketer, Gordon Greenidge !!!!!

… who happened to be sitting, a couple of rows in front of me !!!

I had to look at him a few times before recognising that it was one of my childhood heroes, who was traveling on the same flight !

Unassuming, and clearly not wishing to be noticed, I waited until we crossed paths in the baggage hall, to ask the question, and then get a photo, which he was thankfully, willing to do, even if somewhat reluctantly !

He was far from talkative but I respected the fact that he wanted it that way, and had to respect the fact that he was probably pissed at missing his flight to Texas !!!

Anyway, off to get my shuttle and my first, of quite a few hotels on this extensive trip to the other side of the world …… and finally, first destination reached, it was my time to see what Miami has to offer !!!!!

More instalments to come …… as the fukry’, in terms of world events, it would seem …..

Begins ……. !!!!!
