“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.

Hawaii (Pt I) written by Big Virge 18/11/2014

Hawaii

Okay so American Airlines officially suck ass … !!!!!

Delayed flight, which in turn, created a quite unnecessary debate with my clearly, money hungry taxi driver, about my being, apparently disrespectful, due to my not being, out at the front of my current residence, standing to attention, like a good lil’ bwoy, awaiting her arrival, at our, apparently, arranged time !!!

WHATEVER LOVE !!!!!

However, as I tried to explain to her, but failed, due to her unwillingness to acknowledge her part in this disconnect, a phone call would have made me realise she was waiting and that she had another job to get to !!!

Ahhhhh, but of course, she didn’t have my number !!!!

The one I called her on to book the taxi ??? which she conveniently, hmmmm … ??? did not have in her … NEW PHONE !!!!

Well, due to her, indignant rhetoric, it’s unlikely that i’ll be using her again !!!

Thus, hence begins the crazy day that was to start at the check out desk, due to my name not appearing on the, Robocop, check in units, which I am steadily growing to hate …. !!!!!

Now, as per usual, my appearance had the steward, seemingly, reluctant to help me, until she caught the good ol’ saviour, of my British Tones, bellow at her, as I began to realise there was a problem, one which was about to ground my wish to get away from Bim for a few, to see Hawaii for the first time !!!!!

Ohhhh Fuck !!!!!

Surely, not a booking mistake from the online booking vibe, again, f’ing Robocop style !!!!

When will we learn, that, all that is mechanised, is not necessarily beneficial for human needs ?

In this case, like ensuring that my f’ing ESTA … a.k.a. – A visa permit to travel through the U.S. Of …. Anal Retentive Fukry, had not expired !!!

Well of course it’s my fault that, having previously been told my initial application was valid for two years, that having been to Philly, barely 15 months before, I figured I was good to go, only to find at the check in line, that my visa was only valid for … YUP … A year !!!!!

Hence my technology grievance, as they seem to hold so many details about people online, i’m thinking that maybe, airlines should have a flag come up against any individual, when said persons’ name, comes up as not having a valid visa, for a particular country, books a flight to said country ???

Surely they collect enough taxation money from us to provide a service like that, for again, their countries security, thats seems to be, OH SO IMPORTANT, Right … ???

Must be me, and must be, too much for the money grabbers who deal in this type of online tech, to add to their programmes’ capabilities …. YEAH RIGHT !!!

Well, the catalogue of my days nonsensical events was about to get much worse !!!!

So, having been formally told off by, said stewardess, about my, NOT, checking the date of expiry on my original application, she advised me that I could do it online if I could get wifi in the airport, and had a laptop !!!!

Well here’s where my Bruce Willis, Boy Scout, action hero imitation, took to jigging … !!! 

…. but hold on, this is Grantley Adams airport, how good will the internet provision be … ?!?

Well, much like the help I received from the counter girl in the coffee shop, damn, was the speed SLOW !!!

However, Flight Delay … REMEMBER. !!!!

So, as excruciating as it was to get through the online form … I did it in what seemed to be, the nick of time…. So, back in line with reference number …. only to be immediately asked by the Steward, ” ESTA Expiry Date ? “, back to that old, ball sack again…. !!!!

Well as suggested, I was prepared for him !!! I had taken the reference number down on purpose because of my expecting some kind of red tape requirement to get on my plane !!!

So, no surprises there !!!

The steward had to verify an expiry date ??? As if that is what should be of relevance ?!?

Surely my validity to come into the states should be more important ?

…. but hey, we’re in what I deem to be, a backward age of … ” Regressive Progression “, in many ways, so, once he went through whatever system he needed, to verify my ESTA’s EXPIRY DATE, he checked me in after springing on me, that, ANY luggage being checked in now, on American Airlines, has a fee !!! And there it is ….
Money, Money …MONEY … !!!

The American Ethos, and daylight F’ing robbery, from the visa crap to the luggage crap, if Al Qaeda does bomb them, is it any wonder ??? They have probably been trying to charge them man, for the individual hairs of their beards !!!!!

Just kidding !!!

Guantanamo ain’t a place, American  Airlines needs to add to their list of destinations, just for me !!!!!!

So, finally all was well, and through I went ..,…. To be cont…..

The Service Levels of Today …. via …. Liat Airways !!!!! … ” SMH ?!? “

Okay, well, as a man raised inna England, who has now experienced West Indian service, Bajan style, for about a year now, this is NOT, AT ALL, Surprising ….

However, a quick dig at an English Company, that has shown me where much of these attitudes now stem from ….

F’ing Banks man … !!!!!

If y’all looking at these f’ing monkey cunt, Halifax Bank, adverts, over the last few years with their, condescending use of this, ” Black Mister Magoo “, character, to indicate how warm, friendly and helpful they are ….

DON’T BE FOOLED … !!!!!

They are as arrogant, obnoxious and fast, to run by their own rules, when you don’t happen to fit into how they like to do things, even when you have explained the issue and why it’s occurred ….

Much like … ah yes …. “LIAT” … !!!!!

Who do they think they are, issuing challenges to the likes of Virgin … ???

Good luck with that, YOU FUKWITS !!!!!

Why do so many people in these islands, think that, ” Wrong & Strong “, is the way to go … ???

Annnndddd … THEY REALLY be … Believing their own, “Pish” ??!??

I believe that there are people here in the West Indies, who know & recognise the value of GOOD SERVICE & humility in the face of … INEPT Practises & Thinking ….

….. but, WHERE THE FUCK ARE THEY !!!!!

Liat needs to go, suck pon a lime …. !!!!!
