“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.

“Evolvers” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Yes Yes People ….. !!!

Having had a very calm, and quiet festive, after my …

Adventurous December … !!! … to, Pacific Coastlines and Landscapes, my first poetic offering of the year, is hopefully as inspiring, as it is, thought provoking ….

But in a more, PROGRESSIVELY EVOLVED Manner, than much that has been happening over the last few weeks …. !!!

From Paris to Nigeria bombings, to, US Madness, of a judicial & violent nature, to the, let’s say, not so evolved rhetoric, coming from the likes of Donald Trump, and his competition for the Whitehouse seat !!!!!

Anyway, from top to bottom, this is now, one of my favourites, and covers much that has occurred, and seemingly continues to occur within the ecology of Human Development …..

Take time with this one folks … !!!!!

because ….

Even if the word, ” Evolvers “, doesn’t actually exist in the Oxford, Posh Dictionary, it’s now, one of MY OWN, and what it’s inspired, reflects on much that happens in this crazy world of ours ….

Everyday …..

BELIEVE IT … !!!!!

Don’t Act … ” The Fool ” … !!!!!

Don’t be … ” SURPRISED … !!!
When … ” Drug Filled Highs ” … !!!
slowly …………….. “subside” ………..

Leaves you … ” Feeling ” …

…. ” Pain and Strife ” …. !!!

It Seems … these days … ?

………. ” REALISE ” ……… !!!!!!!!!!

Life is …
NOT About … Mad Cash … !!!
Cocaine, Speed,

Life is … So Much …
MORE … Than That … !!!

So ask yourself … ?

What can you do … ?
to … BETTER … things …
for … ME … and … YOU … !!!

” Going ” …
to … school …
is … Many’s View …

OK … that’s cool … !!!
but … WHO … has built …
These … “INSTITUTES” … ??!??

of … ” Education ” …
” Government Taxation ” … ???

Take … ” Your Time ” …
it’s NOT … A Crime …
to let these thoughts
run through … Your Mind …

How many youth ?
will get the chance …
to dance … The Dance …

THAT … ” Rich Kids ” … do … !?!
while watching … ” Daddy ” …

It’s just a … Question … ?

These days …
That’s … HARD … !!!
I know … That’s True …

But …
Here’s a … Quote …
to give you … ” Clues ” …
on … How to … CHANGE …
These …. ATTITUDES …. !!!!

The needs of …
THE MANY …. !!!!!

Take that … IN …
Don’t spit … but … CHEW … !!!!!

They … Like to be …

But …
TRUST ME … folks … !!!

Try Being … TRUE … !!!
With Friends and People …
You … Speak to …

That’s … just the … START … !!!!!

because change won’t come …
from … ” Smart Remarks ” … !!!!!

While you sit …
in your … ” Phat Yard ” … !!!!!

Those who … do this ..
” Think ” … They’re Smart … !!!!!

Until … Their World …
is … ” RIPPED ” … apart … !!!!!

Nowadays ….
in … Many Ways … !!!

Natures’ ANGER’S …
On … DISPLAY … !!!!

Earthquakes … and …
WILD … Hurricanes … !!!!!

See ….

Come on man … !!!
What Can You Do … !?!

NOT … Everyone …

But …
HEAR ME … CLOSE …
Please be … PREPARED … !!!!!

because snakes …

and will … DARE …
to … Threaten You …
and make you … SCARED … !!!!!

So …
Don’t just let them … !!!
Do … YOUR SHARE …. !!!

and show the … Moaners …
That …… YOU CARE …….
and want … RID OF …

” New Tony Blairs !!! ” …

The only thing … constant …
is simply …. ” CHANGE ” ….
