” It’s Incredible ” … written & performed by Big Virge

Well Well peoples’ …..

Incredible times since my last post ….. !!!!!

Too many things going on, to mention any particular one event, as being THAT Incredible, compared to the next, however, just a few things that did catch my attention ….

Bill Maher running some, ” House Nigger “, talk, as a JOKE of course … on US TV.

Yup… Pretty Incredible …
SMH … !!!!!!

Then, Ice Cube, being the one to chastise and seemingly … EDUCATE him, about it’s usage by white folks ….

Just as Incredible …

Congressman being shot at in the US, while playing Baseball at a Park …

Yup… Pretty Incredible …

The shooter, being some rather disgruntled, old fella, ending up dead before any questions could be asked of him…..

Not quite so Incredible, but hey … it’s America so ….

Got to mention, Pakistan winning the ICC Champions Trophy, in England, having defeated the same, apparent favourites …. LOL ….

Err NOT … on their way, and actually beating the best one day side, India, in the final … Congrats to them ….

Incredible achievement …. !!!!!

Anyway, moving on, Johnny Depp running, Kill The Trumpster’ talk … !!!

Well, on the basis of recent reports about his behaviour towards, ex wife, Amber Heard, and his, allegedly being, a rather unstable and abusive character when he’s ready ….

Not so Incredible again, but hey, interesting, nonetheless ….

Captain Jack may in actual fact be … QUITE MAD …. !!!!!

Talking of flicks, Wonder Woman’s big screen arrival, and dominance ….

Well, having seen it in Grenada in an ICE BOX of a Cinema !!!!!
(Now, HOT, YES it may be, but, ease back on the air con nuh’ man ! Film me ah try fee watch, NOT … catch cold doing it 2 rahted’ … LOL … !!!!!)

Well, all I can say is, Whoo Rasshole WOO, for the Feminists …. !?!

Yeah, some reasonable action, but seriously, yet another hero, I mean…

” Heroine ” of course, Killing …. to preserve peace … ???

Well, she certainly likes kicking some ass !!!?!!!

Plotwise, and cast wise, well, this I found more interesting than the film, when it all played out, and I had time to assess it all.

So, Ex Israeli Defence Force girl, being Gadot, takes on the role of the…

” Righteous Warrior ” ……

Huh Hmmm … Any Coinkeydink’ in how she managed to get cast as an, AMAZON, Warrior Princess … who is ultimately AGAIN …

Righteous … ?!?

I also AGAIN, say, AMAZON … ???

Well, if Hollywood has issues with whitewashing characters/stories, they clearly didn’t see it here !!!

…. However, Ms. Gadot is fairly pleasing on the eye,

…. for …. white audiences right … ???

but hey, if she can lift a Goddess Warriors’ Sword, then I should get a go at being the next Bond 2 rass …. LOL ???

However, her first ally, outside of her home, in the movie, is wait … ?

An American Soldier …. again ….

Any coinkeydink with the ACTUAL … USA/Israel relationship … ???

A little concerning, until, after all’s said and done, Terrible Germans getting blamed for being such AWFUL, Murderers and Propagators of War, we find out that the, ” GOD OF WAR “, Ares, as defined in the flick, is actually ….. Wait for it ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

British … !!!!!

ENGLISH … in fact !!!!!!

So, the man in the movie who claims to have, CHECK IT …..

Manipulated humans from various places, to wage war, because that’s what we are apparently good for, comes from Good Ol’ England …. ?!!!?

I’d say the way that the film connects nations and vibrations of a violent, deceitful and wicked type, is … when you look at the world at large ….

” PRETTY DAMN … INCREDIBLE ” …

However, it’s just a comic book, fictional tale, put trough the Hollywood Machine, so, nothing to read into there …..

Okay ….
Yeah Right …. !!!!!

All this, while Manchester, London Bridge & where, Finsbury Park of all places … !!!!!!

Received TERROR Attacks of varying degrees, and from various creeds it would seem …..

Theresa May made an election Boo Boo, and didn’t re-inforce her majority, but has ended up calling on Northern Irelands DUP, to gain some kind of majority for her Brexit talks etcetera to get through the Houses in Westminster, after her parties, election debacle !!!!!

Yup … Pretty Incredible … !!!!

But Wait … The last of the things i’ll mention for now, has to be the INCREDIBLE SCENES, that saw Grenfell Tower, in West London, basically become a towering inferno …. !!!!!!

Well, there’s nothing, remotely funny about the loss of homes, livelihoods and lives….

However, a lot of … ” Funny Business ” … would seem to encompass everything, from initial media coverage, to discoveries of flammable, REJECTED material, being used in the building, that was allegedly sanctioned by Government, and some clearly, very shady, cold hearted companies, who could clearly have cared less for the residents !

Even The Queen went to view the aftermath ….. !!!

INCREDIBLE … Indeed, and all this before I even get to Africa and other incidents overseas, in the past few weeks ….

Well Finally, I had an Incredible time in Grenadas’ … Island of Spice, so, gladly, i’ve been far away from such sights and scenes …..

So with such Incredible times, it only seems right for me to make this month’s post, some … Incredible Rhymes …..

Check them out ….
and be careful out there people …. !!!!!

“They Seem To Be Afraid ?” … written & performed by Big Virge

Well having today watched a good portion of President Trumps’ press conference, a month in, and after a rough couple of days, regarding conversations, Mike Flynn, Russia & matters surrounding national security ….

Blah Blah … Ha di Ha Blah …….

…. as well as, of course, the ongoing nonsense, that is Brexit ……

SM F’ing Head … ?!?

This would seem to be, as good a time as any, to share this poem, which was written a good few years ago, when freedom of speech for artists, was the topic in the UK, well, amongst the plethora of issues surrounding, basic freedoms, and indeed, as one reporter suggested to Mr. Trump today, the US 1st amendment, which, in no small part relates to the freedom of the press, it does seem, after watching him, and of course the usual ways that Politicians choose to basically, refuse to answer questions directly, even though they seem to have plenty to say, to the point where they, not only, rudely, interrupt !

They then have the cheek, to talk OVER, and in many instances, take over shows where they are merely, ” GUESTS “, rather than the host, one has to eventually ask yourself, what is it that they are SO AFRAID of hearing from ordinary people ?!?

….. and ……

in my case, artists who, coherently challenge, the rhetoric they love to push … ?!?

Especially, when it comes to the media, and, more importantly, the public, who they claim to serve, when they have the chance, and want to address ….

THE MESS … !!!!!!

…. as President Trump defined, what he’s walked into, in his speech today ….

Well, here are a few ideas and opinions as to what I think, particularly in this new age of political & social angst ….. has them somewhat reluctant, to let people outside of their web of WHATEVER ….. have their say ……

Don’t forget folks ….

Virges’ World … an album of spoken word and music, is available on various online platforms ……

Check it out, you might actually be surprised by what you find …..

“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.

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…..

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.

Ofcourse we should just … “Tolerate” … A poem written by big Virge 17/1/2006

Some things just, NEED to be, RE-ITERATED, or, better still, pointed out to those with good sight, who, STILL CHOOSE, to play blind ….

This is an old piece, reflective of what was once seen as … Great Britain …

Well, as the leaders of this, ” Great Country “, are quick to remind the world of their, “Close Ties”, to America, one would have to wonder how many owners/managers of sports teams, now dominated, in many cases, by, black players …. hold attitudes that are just like the current, hot name in the NBA, who is sadly …. NOT, some fresh talented individual, but the OLD, WRINKLY, Jewish Owner, of the LA Clippers …. Donald Sterling …. !!!!!!

Well, it would seem that, quite a few, Black NBA stars, and managers, “Tolerate”, the likes of Sterling, and his ilk !!!!!

Well, Them, He, and ALL the … Smart-Mouthed, English bwoys, who like to tell men like me to let things go, when it comes to our abuse, mis-treatment & deaths, at the hands of their white brothers …..

They should try to ….. “Tolerate” … THIS … !!!!!

London … has been said …
in a …. ” City Guide ” ….

to be a …

PLACE TO SEE … !!!!!

but …..
You should … ” Recognise ” …

that … prices are … HIGH … !!!
Even for … ” A Short ” … train ride … !!!

EVERYONE … can expect … !!!
to see …. ” Tolerance ” …. !!!!!!!!

Well …….

There are …
Quite a few ways … !!!
To Define … TOLERATE … !!!!!

It can mean …

” ENDURE ” … ” PERMIT ” …
and … ” ALLOW TO EXIST ” …

Further definitions … INCLUDE …

to …..

” Allow to be practised,
without interference,
or, molestation ! ”

We’d …
“better not mention” …

School education …
or problems caused …
because of … “Racism” …

” Some ” …
DO … ” Tolerate ” …

A … ” Foreign Face ” …
but … NOT … Always …
in … ” Respectful Ways ” … !!!

Some Racists … PRETEND …
That we’re … ALL FRIENDS … !?!

But …..
Would … NEVER …
Let … ” A Foreigner ” …

… In Their Bed … !!!!!

If words like those …
cause you …. OFFENCE …. !!!

Try to …
” TOLERATE MATE ” … !!!!!

because ….
I’ve got …. MORE …. !!!
I …. NEED TO SAY …. !!!!!

I Don’t … EXIST … !!!!!
for you to … ” Sit ” …
and just … ” Permit ” …

MY RIGHT … to live … !?!
and …. TOLERATE ….
The things … I say … ?!?

A bit of … “Here”, leading to some of … “There” … Philly Diaries 1 … written by Big Virge 20/6/2013

Yes Yes folks ….

What’s good in your zone … ???

Well, in mine, down the south coast of Bim, surrounded by white folks, it ain’t a joke, as the rogues looking to get a quick pay off, are getting close !!!

Prior to leaving these shores recently, it had become evident that many south coast beach front properties were being robbed, even the Jamaican PM’s fam had a safe taken, apparently !!!

Now, the interesting part of that story is that, in speaking to a Jamaican buddy, who has a business here, recently, his reaction was most interesting when hearing about the robbery of Jamaican Dignitaries ….

His reaction was,

“Good, she and her family continue to leave people impoverished whilst living a lavish lifestyle, and then, have the cheek to claim to care about the poor people of Jamaica !!!”

Harsh right !!!?!!!

Well, upon reflection, one would need to assess any level of sympathy you have for people of such ilks, and those, within the hierarchies of society ……..

I do not advocate, robbing and teefing on any level, however, much like Chris Rock done say bout’ beating woman,

“I ain’t about to beat them, but, I will shake the shit out of a bitch, to wake her the fuck up !!!” …. (paraphrased of course) ….

So, in applying it to Barbados and the slow, but sure, rise in crime, who deserves to be robbed, or, better still, who can afford to be robbed uh people ???

I just picked up some food in the Lanterns Mall, and had a discussion with the girls, who were quick to say that, you know what, all these poor people, robbing who they think have money, well, as one of those who isn’t, poverty stricken, but, who still needs to get paid to maintain, I would say this to these young brothers :

“Fellas, is it me, or, is it those around me, who are affecting your ability to live as you’d like ?!?”

“Are your ideals of what you NEED, in perspective and logical ?!?”

….. come on guys, robbing your own is not cool, even if they may live a little differently, note, differently, NOT BETTER, material things, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT …… make a Happy Person !!!

Hard as it is to believe, dont let the big cars, trophy wives and husbands, fool you, behind closed doors, many of these people are some of the most unhappy, twisted, lost souls you will ever find, believe in that … !!!

….. just look at how some of these REALLY HIGH PROFILE actors die, not peacefully, in many cases.

Thus, a quick RIP to James Gandolfini !!!

I know i’m gonna get a WHAT !?!, from most people, but, never watched a full episode of The Sopranos, but, in anything i’ve seen with him, he was always very good, and by initial tributes, seemed to be a very cool dude offscreen !!!

R.I.P. JG

So, talking of cool people, and the US, here is my first instalment of my Philadelphia diaries …..

However, due to this news of men moving in my area, waving and pointing guns at workers, during the day, I have to start with a conversation I had with my new, Jamaican, U.S. buddy, “Reggae Surge”, from G-Town radio, who spoke on a situation he was part of, not so long ago in Jamaica, having been raised there, but, having spent a lengthy period away from the island.

He explained how he had returned to JA, for a holiday, and was in his old neighbourhood, so, had decided to go for a walk in his old district, late one night. He got into what would of been an old stomping ground, and said that he felt as if there was danger in the air, but, due to his being Jamaican, felt comfortable to carry on walking, but, having got to an old block of his, was quickly, in essence, scoped by a guy on a stoop, who, immediately spoke to him in a very aggressive tone, only for him to be shouted at by a man behind him, who knew Surge, from way back, who quickly explained to the man,

“Yow, he is so and so’s nephew/whatever, jus cool nah man, and let man roll !!!”.

Surge said he was told in no uncertain terms afterwards, “Don’t move so bredrin, Jamaica has changed, so, cool you cool, but, watch yourself !!!”.

Now, Jamaica seems to get a bad rep, I have yet to go, but, it does sound as though people need to recognise, from a global perspective, the dangers of being a … “Have Not”, in todays’ society of … ” Bling Blang Wrong !!! ”

I had a conversation in my hotel in Philly, with a couple from Connecticut, so, ofcourse, I brought up the subject of the Newton shootings with this elderly couple, now, it was clear that the husband was wary, but, had asked me for local info, thinking I was a local, but, when I started on the school shooting, his wife/partner, was quick to express her sadness and dismay at such a crazy happening, but, it always begs the question in my mind, it’s fine when we black folks have got it going on in our neighbourhoods, but, once it encroaches on white folks bliss-filled, neighbourhoods, it’s a SERIOUS matter, that needs to be addressed, with immediate effect !!!

Hmmmm, one has to hope that these days, less of these primitive attitudes exist, but, in reality, it would seem, as it has always done, as though the importance of safety for people, does not revolve around black communities.

Sad, but, I think, ultimately true.

In leaving this subject for now, I was explaining to the girls in Lanterns. that, the mindset of the people robbing, is seriously corrupted, when, as i’ve quoted before, men like RZA speak it loud and clear in interviews ….

Ask a F’ing Nigga to go rob some OTHER Niggas, they’re in the car before you, but ask them to go after Police, or, heaven forbid, Politicians, and those within the Corporate World, who hold the REAL MONEY, and who truly live, in my opinion, way beyond their needs, not only is there …. silence ……….

….. but, these same apparent, Bad Bwoy, Street Thugs and Killers, become very distant.

I remember reading a piece of my art, which speaks on Black on Black issues, to a young black man, who lived up the road from me in London, one day, only to hear,

“Very Good, but, you should be careful, speaking THAT STUFF !!!”

….. as if, trying to uplift the mindset of our people, was some kind of …

” Cardinal Sin !!! ”

I really hope, as i’ve just been told, that, when corrupt practises are being found to be true, in echelons, above and beyond the levels of crime that are clearly, disturbing more and more people now, that, the people of this island stand up and be counted, because the best way to stop a lot of this foolishness is to stand firm collectively, and ensure that these rogue criminals, be they street, or, more importantly, officials charged with peoples’ safety, that, they are challenged publicly/internationally, if needs be, a la the ongoing rape debacle of the two English Women, and with immediate effect !!!!!

Don’t get tie up people, I am not saying, try and play, ” Daddy Big Bollocks “, if an intruder comes into your home with weaponry, but, I hope you all, whether white, black, rich or poor, get the gist of what i’m saying !!!!!

Don’t wait until,

” It happens to you !!! “, to be concerned.

…. be concerned NOW, as you should always be & as i’ve said recently, people, stop with all this, divisive bullchit !!!

…and …

” Try Your Best Yes …
Your … VERY … BEST !!!
to make a … ” DIFFERENCE ”

So, to my struggling brothers & sisters ….

As my big brother, “Jabba”, from Jabsrocking, done show me …

“Who Jah Bless, No-one curse …
Why you want to steal … ?
from your Brother, ” FIRST ??? ”

Stop the Violence … !!!

&

Stop the Fukry … !!!!!!!!!!

Come on people …. !!!

One love & Bless up y’all …

Virge
