This month’s subject is … ” Hair ” … written & performed by Big Virge

All i’ll say is this …

It is Truly … INCREDIBLE, to believe & see that, in AFRICA … !!?!!

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-37219471

The matter, of black peoples’ HAIR, is even being mentioned in discussions of how we should present ourselves, in this,

” APPARENT ” ….. Post Apartheid, Mandela legacy, South Africa !

So ….
ONCE AGAIN, for 2016 ….

This stuff is …
BEYOND A … F’ing Joke ….. !!!!!!

However, it is no surprise, surprisingly … to me, with my well … ?!?

Hair …. !!?!!

…. and the all too frequent, disrespectful, name calling comments, that I can barely remember, let alone mention, regarding the aforementioned, Hair … smh …

Blacks, Whites & Asians alike, as this piece states, have no shame in running talk on how mine, and clearly, other black peoples’ hair, grows free ….

Untidy … to them … maybe … ???
Unclean … well ladies, … !!!

I’ll take that, pepsi challenge, that’s it’s cleaner than a lot of y’all …

Pussies … !!!!!

“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.

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

Well, on the basis of much that is revealed in the documentary posted below ……

“Britains Forgotten Slave Owners” …..

It would seem fair to say, that there are and continue to be some…

EXTRAORDINARY … Double Standards, from a monetary perspective, ALONE ….

But, here are a few more, that are clearly, NOT, figments of black folks imagination, or, ” Chips on our Shoulders ” …..

“Yo, for my anger settle,
Man give me a treble !
Wait, i’ve got to mingle
So, give me a single
in fact, i’ll take a double
cos’ this may start trouble !”

All these … ” Double Standards ” …
are getting me angered …

From Lawrence to Walker …
to … Christopher Alder ,,,

it seems some … English People …
Can’t deal …. with … The Evil .. !!!
that … ” Lurks ‘ … in their house … !!!

when they get … ” Found Out ” … !!!!!!!

We blacks … should … ” Shut Mouths ” … ?!?
and … NOT … speak about …
The way we get treated …
in … ” Some ” … English Towns … !!!!!

or speak of our … ” LOSSES ” … !?!
because of … White Bosses …
who’ve got … EVERY RIGHT … !?!
to … Dismiss … our plight …
of fighting … for lives …

when police ….
SHINE THEIR LIGHTS … !!!!!

or keep us … “in the dark” … ?
About …. Monkey Chants …. !!!
while Black soldiers … DIE …

On … Police Station Floors … !!!

They’d rather …. ” Deny ” ….
how we’re … Treated like … WHORES … !!!
and … left on … ALL FOURS …
while THEY … have a laugh …
in stations and … Courts … !!!!!

The standards … ” They Have ” …
DON’T … Add up … like Math … !?!

They’d … ” Rather Not ” … Hear … !!!
about the …. ” Veneers ” …
Behind … “Cover Ups” …
that … EXPOSES STUFF …

About …
Just How … ” low ” …
” Their Standards ” … can go … !!!!!!

EXCUSES … Excuses …
and YES … MORE … EXCUSES … !!!?!!!

are what they … ” Provide ” …
to cover their … ” Looseness ” … !!!

“All people do wrong !”

is their NEW … ” Hot Song ” … !!!

All This … while … ” Trayvons’ ” …
are Lost … due to shots …
from … Zimmerman Bods’ … !!!!!!!!!!!!

“Of course we should Massa’ !
Let’s erase those chapters !”

See i’m down with … The Man …
….. ” Lilian Thuram ” ……

So …
Take the stance … THAT …

” Double Standards ” … Land …
in the laps of … Clans …
who stand next to … ” Racists ” …
in ………. Various Places ………. !!!!!!

But … WON’T …
Get on the … Faces …
of those who spread … HATRED … !!!!!!

I wonder … ” Sometimes ” … ?
whether they … ” Recognise ” …

Or ….
Take time to … THINK ….
About …… ANYTHING ……

Beyond ………………………………… Their Kin …. ?!!!?

It’s CLEAR Most ……… DON’T … !!!!!
and … Won’t … ” Rock The Boat ” …
when … “within” … ” Their Folk ” …

They hear … subtle jokes …
that … EXPOSE … Attitudes …
with … ” Racist Styled Views ” … !!!!!

How many … make … FEUDS ?
within … their own crews … ?

It seems there … Aren’t Many … !?!
who … TRULY … are … ” Ready ” …
to REALLY … say something …

They’d rather do … NOTHING … !!!!!

and be … YES … Complicit …
with those … Who Are … RACIST … !!!!!

but are … QUICK … to run lines
and wanna … Start Fights …
with blacks who … AREN’T SHY … !!!!!

to … Speak on … Their Crimes …
and … Bring them to … LIGHT … !!!!!

The question is …. WHY …. ???

Their standards seem … ” Doubled ” … !?!
when their feathers get … ” Ruffled ” … !!!!

It’s Clear … They get … ” TROUBLED ” … !!!
and just … WILL NOT BE … “humbled” …

I’ve said it before … !!!
I’ll say it again … !!!

It’s like Mos’ Def’ … said …

“When they do it well,
It’s seen as success !
When we do it well
It’s seen as suspect !”

But ….. ???
Who are … ” Suspect ” … ?!?
when their standards .. are … CHECKED … !?!

It’s time to … INSPECT …
and let ME … Cut The Deck … !!!

I ain’t from … Wu Tang … !!!
but … Know about … ” Klans ” …
and … IGNORANT Gangs … !!!
who STILL … ” Take The Stance ” …

That …

Immigrants cause ….
Their countrys’ … ” Downfall ” …

So Let’s … ” Double Check ” …
and get this … ” Correct ” …

When they … ” Move Around ” …
across …. Different Towns ….

On YES … Foreign Grounds …

Does their …. ” Migration ” …. ?
or ……………. IMMIGRATION …… !?!

Make for …. Better Nations …. ?????

when how they get … ” Stationed ” …
seems to bear ……. ” NO RELATION …… ?!?

to … Living in … SQUALOR … ?!?
and … Begging … for Dollars …
or … Begging for … ” Pounds ” … !?!

That’s … REALLY … NOT HOW …
They seem to ….. ” Get Down ” ….. !?!

Do They … FEAR POLICE … ?
when They .. walk the streets … ?
” Upon ” …. Foreign Shores …. ?

Or … Live like the … POOR … ?!?

Their standards … Stay … HIGH … !!!
wherever they ………. ” LIE ” ………..

Of course I meant … ” LAY ” … !!!

But in the …. U.K.
Immigrants … AREN’T OKAY … !!!
and should … YES ………………………………………………….. PLAY AWAY …….

UNLESS …. They will play …
in ways that …. Display ….

A wish to … “CONFORM” …

and NOT … Kick Up A Storm … !!!

when how they are treated …
is …. ” Racism Born ” …. !!!!!!!!!!

I … ” Double Up ” …
My Standards …

So that …
They stay … HIGH … !!!

and … WILL NOT … !!!
have … ” Handlers ” …
Decide …. How I ride …. !!!

and … DON’T KEEP ….
” Whoring Types ” …

Standing ……
By my … side … !!!

and DON’T … “hide behind lies” …
or ……. ” Ignorant Pride ” …….. !!!!!!!!

cos’ it’s now … CLEAR TO ME … !!!

” Some ” … FORGET … Their Manners …
and seem to be ….. ” Hampered ” …..

when it comes to them … SEEING …

How they … “HOLD” …

…… ” Double Standards ” ……

“Troubled Times” … A poem written and performed by Big Virge

Well, this is not a new piece, by any means, but, it would seem to be a piece that, sadly, transcends time, and is as poignant and relevant, now, as it could be, for each of the last 5 decades, as it probably could, further back through modern history, with regards to the policing of black people, that, seems to consistently lead to black deaths in their custody …. that we are made aware of ….

AGAIN …. I REPEAT … !!!
Those that, ” We are made aware of ” … !!!!

because it’s all good and well, talking about the people you hear about, but, it would be wise to acknowledge that there have been individuals, who are victims of cover ups, and lies, that the judiciary seems to find, quite acceptable, as excuses for, these POOR EXCUSES, for police officers !!!!!!

Sandra Bland & Sam Dubose are the latest names to hit the headlines, but, let’s not forget Eric Garner, Michael Brown & Freddie Gray, whose murder, seems to have fuelled more violence on Baltimores’ streets !!!!!

The final name i’ll add here is … Walter Scott, who suffered, what was essentially, a horrific execution, for a faulty tail light !!?!!

and….

…. let me just say this to all the, smart-mouthed, English people, who seem to think that the police in England, are divorced from their American cousins … ???

Well, the two countries don’t have a … ” Special Relationship “, for no reason !

Remember, the heritage of most, White Americans, as I keep finding out on my travels ….

If you ask them, upon meeting them, where their families originate from, you may just be surprised by, just how many have ….

YES, that’s right, European / BRITISH Connections … and that’s FACT !

So, i’ll just make mention of Mark Duggan, Smiley Culture and Christopher Alder … RIP …. to remind them of the same, ridiculous stories, that attempt to cover the racism, and brutality, that also leads to black deaths at the hands of UK Police……

It’s a disgrace … !!!!!

….. and they, as peacekeepers’, have as much to do with the decay of basic, civil rights, for people of colour, as well as, the rise in violent, street crime, that again, is not some figment of peoples’ imagination, it’s a very REAL PROBLEM, that needs to be addressed….. !!!

So, i’ll let the poem say the rest.

The list of names below, and those above, are VERY REAL INDICATIONS of …

Troubled Times ….. !!!!!

Trayvon Martin
Raymond Allen – 34
Dante Prince – 25
Nehemiah Dillard – 29
Wendall Allen – 20
Shereese Francis – 30
Rekia Boyd – 22
Kendrec McDade – 19
Ervin Jefferson – 18

” STOP ! ” … by Rapper Big Pooh, produced by Apollo Brown ….

Rapper Big Pooh ….

Putting down some TRUTH, over an Apollo Brown Groove ….

SALUTE those, who’ve been murdered, killed & abused by uniformed BRUTES … !!!!!

Yes, this ones’ for the guys, but, let’s NOT FORGET, the black women, who seem to get less attention, but, are also having to face abuses of their basic civil rights that result in the loss of their lives …..

Cool visuals to go with the potent lyrical content of this track …..

So, Silent Protest then … Punishment … !!! … written by Big Virge 29/04/2014

Okay, so, it takes a lot to make me wanna blog about anything these days, as most things are just a regurgitation of much, that has gone on before, however, so much has been going on at the moment, that, I figured I should say sumthin’, Big Virge style …..

Well, as the typo i’ve just corrected from Nig Virge, to Big Virge has prompted me, I have to start with the NBA, firstly, the good stuff.

What about this first round of the playoffs huh ….. !!?!!

Overtimes’ … ALL OVER THE PLACE, Miami doing their thing, and cruising through, but, wow, Brooklyn and Toronto, Deron Williams, KG & The Truth & Joe Johnson, in battle with a surprisingly resilient Toronto, good stuff there !!!

San Antonio and Dallas, locked in battle, as some of the old guard of quality players get their zimmer frames charged for another Playoff push, Parker, Duncan, Dirk & Vince Carter, producing varying levels of quality, and my man Ginobli, still shaking and baking, confusing and bemusing with everything from subtle drives to the rim, to, 3 point shooting !!!!!

Now, No Fakers are allowed in the west this year, it seems, The Clippers & Golden State, again, a very interesting matchup, as is the Memphis/Oklahoma draw, KD under some pressure from Zac and Gasol, (being Mark not Pau who = Mr. Gasoft !!!), Chicago, under some, Serious Pressure, from Washington, Indiana, not looking quite as strong as last year, The Hawks now having a chance to close out as they are 3-2 up currently, and we’ve got Houston in a real struggle with Portland !!!!!

This last match-up has been, INCREDIBLE … !!! … in terms of the fact that, 3, yes I said … ” 3 ” … overtime games, have already occurred in this series, and we’re only now at game 5 !!!!!

Simply, crazy runs, incredible comebacks, and somewhere in the mix is a Dwight Howard, now, MAKING, free throws, but, beyond that, not exactly showing the … ” Superman ” … promise of his now, infamous, slam dunk contest win !!!!!

Same ol’ same, essentially, only half, if that, of the, ” Howard Package ” working, which, must be frustrating for Coach Mchale, James Harden and the rest of the Houston team, including, Chandler Parsons, who literally was … ON FIRE … for the 1st half of Game 4, which was as tough a win as Portland have had, in my opinion, thus far !

Parsons, in particular, was doing what many, i’m sure, would suggest Howard should be doing, DOMINATING … !!!!!, which seems to have somehow, left James Harden, finding it difficult to find his game, now that he needs it most !!!

A couple of 30+ performances aside, he has seemed, lacklustre, and, out of sync with his team for most of the series, thus far, however, Lamarcus Aldridge and his Blazers, are somewhat of an enigma.

They have had a strong season, by all accounts, yet, seem to lack the definitive squad, that you look at and fear, but, they have now, put, Serious Fear of DEFEAT, in the minds of The Rockets, who now have a mountain to climb to recover from 3-1 down, with 3 to play !!!

Damian Lillard is growing with every playoff performance, much like Steph Curry & Klay Thompson have done, since last year, but, I think they’ll need more than Batum & Mo Williams to continue, against stronger teams than Houston, but, who knows, so many unknowns, as the playoffs get serious !!!!!

Okay then, the positives over ….

What The Fuck is Donald Sterling on … !?!

… and … “silent protests”, regarding, racist statements made in a … Private Conversation … between, Good ol’ Donald, and his girlfriend, who is apparently, half Mexican and half black, which, SOMEHOW, found it’s way into TMZ’s hands, hmmmmm are you smelling what,” The Virge is Cooking !!?!!”

Yup, that ugly word, ” Racism “, that, certain white folks seem to think we should of forgotten about by now, has reared it’s ugly head, from the Clippers Owner, who has now been banned for life, after being … “Outed”, as some kind of Klansman with a LA Clippers logo on his hood !!!!!

Thus, the rhetoric has been in full flow, from the likes of TNT’s, Inside The NBA panel.

Kenny “The Jet” Smith, seems deeply upset by the revelations about Sterling, while Shaq & Charles Barkley seemed, a little less, angst-filled about it, Barkley, being very quick to essentially point out, that, most of the men at that table, alongside of many, over the last 25 years, be they players, or, members of the media circus that follows the NBA, have contributed to Donald Sterlings wealth, thus, who doesn’t have dirty hands regarding the support of an individual, who, although currently employing, a black coach, and numerous high profile, black players, seems to hold the view that, “Black folks should stay away from his teams games !!!”.

Now, let me just stress, HIS GIRLFRIEND, Vivian Stiviano, aka Maria Vanessa Perez, is the woman who seems to have, SOMEHOW, let her conversation with Mr. Sterling, become public property ???

Things are smelling fishy, she’s his … ” Girlfriend ” … yet, Sterling has 3 children and a wife, whose suing her, due to lavish gifts received from Sterling over the last couple of YEARS … ?!?!?

Now, she seems to be no better than a gold digging’, lil whore, by all accounts, NOT, my opinion, merely speculation, on the basis of Bentleys, Ferrari’s and a Million Dollar duplex, apparently bought for her, by Sterling, so, could this be a devious ploy to get money before what she has … ” Earned ” … is taken from her … ???

Who knows, the conversation is a very strange one, which seems to have her apologising for a variety of things, one being Sterlings attitude towards this picture, that she posted on Instagram with Magic Johnson …. hmmmmm ….

Then the … ” Silent Protest ” … from the Clippers and the show of solidarity, via black socks, armbands etc, a la … John Carlos & Tommie Smith, on the Olympic podium in 1968.

I’ve heard this about black folks before, ” Silent Support “, which in my book, is NO SUPPORT … at all !!!!!

Thus, it has fallen on, relatively new commissioner, Adam Silver, to demand Sterling sell up and pay a fine of a couple of million, which, to a BILLIONAIRE, like Sterling, is pretty much like, a drop in the ocean of pennies, he seems to like spending on a bit of mixed race ass, and, on the black people who serve his financial needs !!!!!

However, the life ban is, well, interesting at best, but, only if you can get past the fact that, at, 80, good ol’ Don, surely ain’t got that long left to be getting anything done for himself, let alone, get to games, to watch his, Beloved Clippers !!!

I believe, at his age, a big screen TV, or, Home Theatre, should suffice for his viewing needs.

Thus, the big affirmation of applause comes for Silver, from players, old and current, as well as the NBA populous.

Meanwhile ……

Dani Alves eats bananas, to combat racism before taking a corner for Barca at Villareals’ ground in Spain !!!!!

I think the quote that has me the most pissed, is that of Ex-England striker, Gary Lineker, who seems to believe, this is the … ” BEST WAY ” … to combat racism …..

to which, i’m like ….. WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT MAN ?!!!?

Maybe, Adam Silver should of made Sterling eat bananas, until whatever Racism rests in him is forced out due to, Internal Banana Combustion …. !!!!!

I’m getting sick of the continued, denial, of basic truth, and defence of individuals, like say, Luis Suarez, by people who seem to think that, having black in their fam’, automatically means, THEY CAN’T POSSIBLY BE RACIST !!!!!

WOW, Okay ….

So, that’s all we need to prove, that, we’re all from Africa, originally, thus, all racism is over !!!!!

Thought most folk with brains, that function, have pretty much accepted the Africa bit, by now !!!!!

Suffice to say, I REALLY, do believe that it’s time to stop all these, “silent protests”, and reliance on the same people who, PROTECT, these racists and liars, until their stupidity, exposes them for others to see !!!!!

Would you trust a black man who robbed you, to take care of money you’d just stolen, because he happens to be a teef too ???

I doubt it !!!!!

So, let’s not get carried away with, happiness, or some sense of vindication, due to punishment for men, like Sterling, who’ve been able to build their wealth and ENJOY IT !!! … when they were relatively young, while the likes of Trayvon, and, a high proportion of young black males, don’t even get to see the latter years of their lives, due to actions of racists, who are smarter than, an old geriatric ass, who happens to have forgotten, the world we now live in, thus, gets duped by, again, a woman who would seem quite happy to be the girlfriend of a … ” Married Man “, who, happens to hold the views of a Klansman, until it comes to getting his tings’ wet, via, whatever hole she decides to open, for her gold digging exploits to pay off !!!!!

I don’t agree that Sterling should be forced to sell anything, as that doesn’t hurt his finances does it, which is clearly where his allegiance lies, to the papes ???

…. but, I think that, the black people who are part of The Clippers organisation, should take a serious look at themselves, and instead of wearing the jerseys, inside out, should either, pool their resources to buy Sterling out, or, do the honourable thing, and leave him and his white compadres to their arena, and to finding success without them.

The US of A, revolves around the Dollar Bill, so, hit these men, where it hurts, and we might see them behave they crotch … !!! … rather than hold such, ignorant views, which they clearly have done, for quite some time, deep inside their minds, and CLEARLY, behind boardroom doors … !!!!!

Now, bring on the B-Ball, and let’s hope the playoffs continue to provide something for the NBA, to be proud to represent, sport and sportsmanship, of the highest standard, that has … NO COLOUR LINES.

One Love y’all …

The V out tie …

Peace & Unity.

A Most Eventful Week … written by Big Virge 28/7/2013

Indeed, it has been a very interesting week for me, last Saturday was cool and chilled, but, it takes days to recognise that a simple thing like, falling from a hammock, that wasn’t that high of the ground, for a man my size, can still be quite the damaging thing !!!

I may have been fighting a flu type strain that seems to be in the island at the moment, but, it was the days ensuing, that showed me, that, I may have shaken my spine, neck, and head into places that they shouldn’t of been, so, yup, bit of a rough week, physically, which, culminated in my being in an accident on Thursday afternoon on the Worthing Coast Road, where a man who, apparently, doesn’t live here, decided to drive into the side of my ride, without really giving a damn !!!

Try paying attention my man !!!!!!!!

The fact that he was driving his sisters’ car, says it all really, meantime, I have man trying to get into some kind of war of words with me, due to my explaining that his new love is not in my list of cool peeps, as are many of the collective who surround her.

So, rather than accept that, okay, he can’t do anything about it, he felt the need to embark upon, what I deem to be some kind of threat, which was indicating that, oh, I shouldn’t talk about his woman like that, as in his opinion, she is the best thing since slice bread to walk the f’ing earth !!!

I mean, good for you man, but, recognise, my opinion, i’m entitled to … !!!

…. and, more importantly, I am not gonna do like most people do, and come round them playing that all is cool, when it isn’t, but, this would seem to be the Bajan way, lie to keep up f’ing appearances !!!!!

Why exactly … ???

Bajans, like their English Masters, have become great exponents of the facade/veneer of love and tolerance, but tolerance, as i’ve written about, means, allow to exist !!!

My views, opinions, require no-ones’, “allowance”, of them, they are what they are regardless.

I’ve spoken about, “Manbitch”, behaviour, for some time now, and just because a girl/woman is sucking my balls, doesn’t mean she’s above being criticised, and, fellas, here’s a hint for you, they tend to respect you more, when you are like that, rather than filling up their heads with this idea that they are the sun, moon, stars and everything else ???!!!???

Why, well, because that’s just NOT TRUE !!!

Anyway, I got to the end of the week in fair shape, having been in Police Stations, being told stuff like, ” Calm down, you’re being aggressive ! “, upon explaining that i’d merely come in, due to being asked ….

It would seem that the US and UK style of policing, is reaching the Bajan fold, however, cool and calm prevails, with men who clearly feel that their uniform makes them into some form of god ???

How they can be so blinkered in their vision of themselves, is really beyond me, but, if police across the world are looking at the US and England, no wonder they think that they can, not only talk to people how they want, but, can get away with what they want !!!

NOT COOL !!!

However, what was cool was a very different kind of chat I had with a Bajan Man, when I was in a place getting some bits done.

Now, this man advised me early on, that his grandfather was white, now, incredibly, a couple of generations down, he’s black, maybe not dark like me, but he’s no Obama shade, he is what I define as being a black man, just goes to show you how we are all interbred, at some level, and are perhaps, closer to each other, than all these separatist ideals would have us believe.

Now, on that note, the conversation started on, White Barbados, well, he was quick to state how, white barbadians are indeed, some of the most, arrogant, obnoxious, ignorant people upon this, now, seemingly, god-forsaken planet, full of lies, deceit, and actually, everything but the superiority they like to try to present as being their position.

He further explained to me that in his experiences here, he’s heard white tourists speak on the disgust they have felt, in being associated purely by their colour, to these white Bajans, who seem to feel that even today, they are not to be challenged, questioned, or, worse still, served after black people, at any time !

We then got very deep into the psyche of black bajans, he was quick to level his disgust at the poor levels of service that he sees bajans giving to tourists and ofcourse to black tourists, who, you’d of thought, they’d at least be civil to.

He then explained that he knows what eating three crackers for the day is like, he knows poverty, but, would not allow that to stop him being civil, polite and helpful to anyone needing help from him, especially now that he works, and deals with all sorts of people within his work.

He and I got into the very ideal of the world being in, as his stated, an upside down state of, ” Demonic Madness !!! “.

A very strong term, but, in all honesty, with people dying in more and more vindictive, vicious and brutal ways, it’s hard to dispute, with peoples’ general treatment of each other, seemingly descending, into some, Neanderthal like, grunting, demanding type of communication.

He has children, but was quick to state that he felt me to be a better man than he, for not bringing children into this time, he also stated that keeping out of peoples’ business is an even smarter move, especially here, because as with the aforementioned man, in this post, Bajans don’t seem to be able to accept that you’re here, but, feel happier living without being around them too much, as if they are perfect, and ultimately, honest people to deal with.

He also spoke about the, “timid”, nature of Bajans, relating it to the impoverished living that many have experienced, through multiple generations.

Well, when you study the fact that, other than people like Bernie Grant (RIP) in the UK, very few black people, be they artists or otherwise, are famed for being that individual to have spoken out against the huge levels of institutional racism that is in full effect, to this day, in England, I confirmed to him that, the colonial effect of slavery & the beautiful crafting of mind control that the “Windrush Immigrants”, in England, were then indoctrinated into, has now ensured the legacy, that, as black people, around white folks, we are to be seen occasionally, but definitely, not to be heard.

This, in my view, has much relation to the timid nature of not just black people here, but, all over the world, in many cases.

We spoke about the street mentality black men, who don’t want to do anything, yet, expect everything but the shirt off, “YOUR BACK”, especially from those of us who have worked and earned a little something for themselves, which he stated as being, one of the most painful things to accept about many young bajan men, the disrespect of our own people.

As elder men have explained to me over the years, it is sad, but TRUE, and as the saying goes, when shit hits the fan, they are quick to turn …

NO, not on their oppressors, but, on those who they feel, for some reason, are lesser than them for taking shit from these people, to ensure that you can provide and educate your family and offspring to live in a vein that avails, some sense of parity, if not, financially, intellectually & spiritually.

Funny how so few black folks seem to feel that way about Mr. Obama ???

Anyway, this level of existence makes you into a target, as you shouldn’t have it, because you must have sold out to have something in … “Their world” …. ???

… which doesn’t compute, because some of us have stood firm in offices and on building sites, when faced with ignorance, racism, and denial of pay that white counterparts receive, purely because of the fact that they are white !!!

I dare them street/beach man to try it for a month and see how easy it is, PUNKS !!!!!

IT is a tough world for a black individual whatever level of society you choose to embrace, but, they can’t see that, because their so caught up in their own bullchit, and then feel that they have the right to take from you, when you have worked and struggled and battled your wish to just go into work sometimes, and start letting off on anybody of fairer skin than you !!!!!

The fact is that when you walk out of their den, unscathed, they’d better fucking believe, that’s quite an achievement, because many have failed, because they couldn’t control their tempers or mouths !!!!!

This brings me back to white bajans, who do seem to have that vibe about them, that we black folk, should not have the cheek to talk back to them about anything ….???

Sorry, are we in the fing 1800’s or something, Is Trayvon Martin and the likes of Stephen Lawrence subject matter, stuff that can’t now be thrown up in their face like,

“Just remember, don’t make the mistake of thinking you can treat me like them ?!?”

It would seem not …. but suffice to say, I deal with one, who is my landlord, who is I think, playing at being, one of the new age, slick white boys, but, only when money is being paid to him, it is interesting to study how they are around stronger black men, and then even more interesting to see the types of black people who work for them, and then, the pull they have in various levels of society, where their family members work, and who, in the event of something needing to be resorted, they can call upon.

All this from a 15 minute conversation with a man who did not see me as anything other than being another black male, who ended up in conversation with him, while he provided a service for me.

It is thankfully, individuals like him that keep the faith in men like me alive … !!!!!

Nuff Respect Papa !!!!!

Indeed, i’ll end this post with this line ….

As crazy as this week has been …..

It has proven to be ….

” A blessing in disguise ! ”

Enjoy your week people !!!

I hope to … Finally … get inside the Kensington Oval to enjoy some 20/20 this week ….

Many Thanks for the hook up T

One.

Indeed, not only, Powerful, but, REAL TALK … from David Banner

When I think of the amount of people who keep saying,

“Oh, but, things are okay, and are “BETTER”, what are you complaining about …. especially in good ol’ Blighty (England) …..

It makes you wonder, as Mr. Banner appropriately states, what f’ing world these people live in !!?!!

Well, here is a black man who has made something of himself, but, hasn’t let the headlights of fame, affect his brain …..

Str8 talk from Mr. Banner !

Well, at least Mr. Zimmerman has been Good for Sumthin’ !!! … written by Big Virge 14/7/2012

The title to this post is because he’s inspired me to write some more, about, my recent visit to the US, and reminded me of much that I heard in the U.S.

…. Not Florida, but, Philadelphia, which according to various stories that I was told, in my interactions, is a state filled with, Police Brutality & Corruption !!!!!

One evening, whilst in company, a woman came into the group and immediately changed the vibe of the gathering, as she spoke about feeling pressured into going to court the next day, regarding an incident, which she proceeded to tell us, from ofcourse, “Her side of the story”, involved her and a young boy, who, she didn’t know, being arrested & searched for drugs, which were not found, as she & the youth had none, only to be dragged out of the squad car, to be then beaten by 7 out of 8 officers, whilst the female officer, officer number 8, stood and watched !!!!!

The BIG problem with this, is that ….

Oh, stupid Mutha fuckers didn’t know that she was pregnant !!!!!

She lost the child !

As the judge initially told them, “This young lady better not be troubled before this gets to court as you are on charges of murder, remember that !!!!!”

The captain of the station where these fukkers were from, personally came to apologise to the woman, who, sadly, in my opinion, was not taking this matter seriously enough, until I and a few other men started to explain to her the gravity of her position, and that, she should be doing everything possible, to not only get financially compensated, but, to use this as an opportunity to expose these officers for their behaviour, so that others would have a level of awareness, if not protection, from such …..

“Po Po’, practices.

Unbelievable, but true, however, it seemed that she was highly fearful of reprisals, beyond the law, by said officers, or their fraternity …. which …. links suitably to, guess who, Mr. Zimmerman !!!

Is it something about the name George that America likes, that means that they can get away with all kinds of wickedness, and pay no price for it ?!?

Zimmerman and Georgie Bush, seem to have got away with murderous acts in the name of ….

“Defence of their territory !”

So, realistically, this … ” Stand Your Ground “, Florida Law, should avail freedom for people, fearing the police, as most people of colour do, to, shoot them without fear of punitive measures from the states judicial system, under the grounds of self-defence … ???

…. or is that, just for, … Fairer-Skinned Folks, as plenty of white folks will be running the, “Ahhh but Zimmerman’s Mexican !!!!”, rhetoric.

It is interesting to me though, having found myself in a neighbourhood, that is predominantly white, in Barbados, how my neighbours, in over a year, have yet to introduce themselves, other than from a very …. ” Safe Distance !!!”

It’s crazy funny to me, or, as Mos Def has said, ” It’s So SERIOUS, i’m Laughing “, because, as much as recent occurrences in this area, suggest a level of need for such neighbourhood watches as per the Zimmerman case, here in Bim. The manner of some of the white folks when first seeing me, even now, does have me now thinking, could I of ended up being shot, if I happened to be walking through here at the wrong time of night by some, “Trigger Happy” ….

” American History X “, wannabe ???

Well, fortunately, hooded garms, aren’t so much of a need here, due to the weather, but, bwoyyyyy, wit some of these, actually, not so secretive, racists, i’m beginning to wonder … ???

Sadly for me though, it has been those of a similar skin tone, who, actually make me glad that I am where I am, due to none of these white folks openly threatening to shoot or rob me, because I apparently, deserve to be !!!!!

Words like those, have though, come from, ” My People ??? “.

…. maybe …. not so much like me … ???

…. but, having been on the receiving end of such talk and attitudes, it isn’t so hard to see why a lot of white people view black people as a threat, and, in many ways, a strain of humanity, that, needs to be kept away from them !!!

However, back to Philly, and let me show you how it can be translated in their actions, which proves their stance to be as f’ckd up, as that of blacks, who feel that, due to another black persons progression, they need to be dragged back to where they seem, happy to be.

I walk in to one of the, Radisson Hotels’ toilets in Philly, on my recent visit, to see a white guy, visibly disturbed by my appearance, but, he relaxed, “A little”, upon seeing that I wasn’t about to rob him … ?!?

…. only to have, two rather merry … (inebriated) … older white guys walk in to see us at the urinals, which then was quickly followed by one of them loudly proclaiming to their white compadre, “Careful he don’t rob you !!!”.

The … “Truth Juice”, had clearly got the better of him, now, I could ofcourse, now be in prison for decapitating his ignorant ass, but, upon looking at the first white guys face, it was as if his eyes were saying,

“Damn it you redneck fuck, I was thinking it, but, you had to go there didn’t ya !?!”.

Who was the worst racist … ???

…. well, debatable, but, my non-reaction, is to retain my freedom, so that I can pass on the FACT, that, such attitudes have never been removed, perhaps because of judicial decisions like this, “Not Guilty”, Zimmerman bullpish !!!!!

I’m gonna cut this one here, as today, on a thread I started, a comment was placed on it by a young white guy, who seemed unabashed in stating that, “He doesn’t care whether Zimmerman is guilty or not, because racism has been placed above the law !”.

… which is a JOKE, in his view.

Well, when I see such attitudes being so brazenly shown, especially by white peeps, it reminds me of these things …..

How many of them … FEAR … Immigration checks, when travelling ?!?

… or, “Stop and Search”, from Po Po ???
… or Beatdowns, to the degree that the young woman I met in Philly, went through ???

…. but, more important than all of these things is this, how many of these, “PC Laws”, are written by … Black People, for the benefit of … Black People, in countries where, “These Laws”, do not relate, ONE IOTA, to the indigenous people of countries like, The …. let me stress ….

UNITED …. States of America …. huh …. ??? ! ???

Even in places like Barbados, as much as there are black figureheads now, their doctrine seems to follow those of the colonialists, who whipped their forefathers into shape.

As I was recently told, about the coastguard here, apparently, when someone calls for help due to difficulties in the waters,

Why would the first question be … ???

“Are they tourists … !???!”

People… People… People… SMH SMH SMH !!!!!

When will we learn to get past being open, and, more important than that,

“Impartial and Logical”, regarding things that, CLEARLY, are not right …. !!!!!

Like Mr. Zimmerman, not being found guilty of … ANYTHING … when he still has the blood of a young mans murder, on his hands ……

Think about it …….

Riots and protests now ….. for what ….. ???

To fuel more need for, Hard-Hitting Policing and law changes that impinge even further on, civil liberties ….

Good luck with that people ….. !!!!!

What a crazy place the U.S, has become, under the guise of … ” Change “, under the Obama administration ….

What a joke !!!!!!!!!
