” Pretenders ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, quite the month it’s been people ….

All kinds of industry awards for film and music, pretenders to thrones being disappointed, whilst other pretenders to thrones, getting their props, from their peers.

In Hollywood, it’s such a farcically, perverted place, that it’s hard to truly believe that awards are given to individuals, solely based upon the quality of their, respective works, or merely because they sucked the right persons whatever, these days … !!!!!

Politically, well it seems that the Brits’ have got their noses out of joint over, alleged, covert, Russian Misbehaviour, on British Soil … ???

Now, this in turn, has garnered support from a lot of nations apparently … ???

…. and of course, the US, via it’s President, has let Vladimir, and his foreign diplomats know, that they apparently are no longer welcome, where they once were.

Also, the North Korea situation has been hitting headlines, as it appears that recent exchanges between America and North Korea, that were quite tempestuous, were no more than a lot of hot air, as, not only has Kim Jong Un, met with the Chinese Premier, President Xi Jinping, but apparently, he’s now cool with The Trumpster’, and other leaders, who seem to rather quickly be joining the queue to talk with a man who, barely months ago, was being labelled as a dangerous, out of control, tyrannical leader ….. ???

Something isn’t quite adding up people ….. ???

As comedian, George Carlin would i’m sure of suggested, the viagra seems to have worn off, and dick swinging has stopped for a while at least, so that the limp dick leaders of this world, can prove that, ” Pretense “, is indeed, along with those little pills, their greatest ally.

Also, the word is that, Donald will never get to build his wall, to keep the Mexicans out, as he so vehemently claimed he would do, on his way to the Whitehouse !

(which, as a sidetone, quickly reminds me, is Guantanamo still open ???)

Okay back to Americas’ current big shot caller ….

It also seems that he won’t get to bed, a certain, Stormy Daniels, ever again, as their relations have become somewhat strained now !

LMFAOL ….. !!!!!!

…. and of course, there’s been the customary firing of members of Donalds’, US Administration, continues to baffle and bemuse the people who keep believing that these people, that he chooses, are actually supportive of the somewhat beleaguered President.

Seems like a great many PRETENDERS, are out there, which finally leads me to the admission by David Warner, Cameron Bancroft & The Australian Cricket Captain NO LESS, Steve Smith, that the pretence of them being decent, honest, fair cricketers, has been nothing more than a rather LARGE VENEER, that also has led to their, poor old coach, Darren Lehmans’ sudden resignation, after apparently being backed by the Australian Cricket Board …… just days before ….. ???

The same Darren Lehmann who had to apologise for using racist language with regard to Sri Lankan opposition, not so many years ago, who was also quick to join Yorkshire, a county who were seemingly pressured into reversing their policy of basically, not having anybody from outside of Yorkshire, be part of their team, especially if they had a bit too much colour …. !!!!!

You had to be of Tendulkar, or Richie Richardson Levels, to have even have had a chance back in those days, let’s not forget !!!!!

Hmmmm, nice blokes these lot and it sounds like there are a great many pretenders in Australia, maybe not just confined to the upper echelons of Aussie Cricket !!!!!!

It’s so laughable that it’s seriousness may be being dismissed, as nothing more than a blot on the landscape of Australian Sportsmanship,

It’s only Ball Tampering after all, so what, they just got caught for a change … !!!!!

However, one should not dismiss the level of vitriol aimed at anyone who wasn’t whiter than the whitest cricket ball, if they were accused of cheating, without any admission of guilt, previously.

The South Africans can hardly get too upset, as Hansie Cronjes name, has to be quickly brought up, when it comes to deceitful actions surrounding cricket, in the past.

In a world seemingly filled with so many liars, cheats and thieves, this month’s piece reflects on this pastime that seems to be so popular amongst so many bods’ on this planet of ours, including just one name i’ll mention from the poem, a certain Ryan Lochte, whose behaviour in Brazil not so long ago, with other US Olympic swimmers, should serve as a very important reminder of how white pretenders get treated in comparison to us darker folks, when we are foolish enough to get caught doing things that we perhaps, shouldn’t ……

So, as much a warning as an assessment of the Pretenders we all have to face at various point in our lives ….

Check it out ……..

and remember folks, HONESTY, is the best policy, however,

ONLY BEFORE, you decide not to be !!!!!

NOT ….. The other way round !!!!!

“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.

Virge.
