” I’m Used To Them Now ” … Prod by Strat Carter

Well folks,

It’s that time again, and after the weekend I’ve had, this is the perfect tune to drop ….

It truly is incredible how fast some people can be online, or in text, with their chat !

Particularly, these white folks who only find fault in things that they disagree with, in terms of ones use of expression.

Especially, when it doesn’t fit in with their …

“ Lily White Lives “ …..

They seem to only be able to deal with, “ White Angst “, regarding social issues and the manner in which they are directing the modern world.

I’ve had it from so called black friends too !!!!

…. being told that I was CRAZY, when I was dealing with my mother, when she was extremely close to death ???

However, when people contact you, out of the blue, for a favour, but then get into the type of political discussion, where they then defend the likes of Theresa May, and the UK, in the wake of recent events, like The Grenfell Fire, Brexit’ and The Windrush, “ Hostile Environment Stuff “ …

It truly is amazing how offended they get, when someone, especially a black person, explains to them why we might not have sympathy for people within the political arenas of today, and the past incarnations of it !

So, within 10 texts, I went from the guy to ask for a favour, to a guy with A PROBLEM !?!

Indeed I do, when it comes to individuals, who have blinkers on, when it comes to acknowledging the legacy of colonially driven ideals, spread by the British.

So, therefore, as usual, want to pass the buck & throw stones at other houses, who have followed the British Model, to divert from the fact that Britain is undoubtedly, one of the most Racist places in the world to live !

NOT because of OVERT ….

But …..

COVERT Acts of Racism !!!

…. Then of course, you have these white folks who’ve spent time in Africa, have money, travel loads, and then think that because they are ingesting the thoughts of black people, who have embraced their systems of governance, that they can direct your attention to things that avail a less ANGRY and BITTER position, regarding certain aspects of today’s world, it irks some, fa sure !!!!!

However, I must firstly, thank these two individuals for inspiring my pen to get hot this weekend, but more importantly, as this track shows,

Explain that, actually, it’s all good because ………..

” Punch ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

Well folks, another month has passed, and as usual currently, just enough crazy things have happened to leave me feeling, a little punch drunk, with all that I am hearing & seeing to be standard actions in this world of ours.

Politicians backstabbing and deceiving one another !!!

Elections coming here in Barbados, and many seem to be saying the same as was said by quite a few people in the US, before Donald Trump became President.

If Freundel’s crew retain power here, heads are talking about Canada as a safe haven.

Well, what I will say is that on the surface, it looks like one of the better countries to be in at the moment.

However, is anywhere really safe and prosperous these days ?

America & England do not exactly offer safe havens to go, unless you are willing to ignore the social issues that currently surround living in either country currently.

Money Money Money though, still has people acting funny !

Desperation is almost like a new breathing apparatus for the majority, as prices continue to rise, whilst wages are not rising at quite the same pace.

Trouble’s a brewing, and as said, the political ring has the Punch Drunk feeling being thrown around, however, Meghan & William did their thing over the weekend, with a whole heap of pomp and ceremony.

It’s always interesting to me, to see how celebrities who claim to represent art that should influence peoples’ perceptions of say, everything from Capitalism, to, Historical Wrongs that have been suitably covered up, yet, they are quick to accept an invitation from one of the biggest, if not THE BIGGEST, family of colonialists, who, in no small way have contributed to not only, the inequalities of this world, through their legacies of brutality, greed and receipt, but have profited in ways that make their money seem much more dirty, than any that’s being laundered currently.

It’s incredible that, so soon after the acknowledgement that Windrush Migrants were deemed to basically, not exist, presumably because of their lack of economic benefit to the country now, that, no-one was at the Royal Wedding, protesting the idea of William, grabbing himself, a bit of colour to create an image of acceptance, for people of colour, even within the royal family !?!

It’s pretty amazing really, when you add in, the current, ” Brexit ” vibe, and the, ” Hostile Environment “, that was supposed to be the policy towards todays’ immigrants, trying to get to stay in the UK.

As said, it’s all getting a bit too much for my brain to cope with, so, let me get back to the piece i’m sharing this month.

Well, having watched a pretty decent fight between Adonis Stevenson & Badou Jack any Light Heavyweight last night, which for a change, ended with a controversial verdict, that actually, wasn’t that controversial.

No Knockout Punches were thrown, that landed, but there were some brutal shots that were taken, that warrant a rematch after the draw decision which allows Stevenson to keep his belt for now.

So, for boxing fans, this month’s piece speaks on more than boxing, but pays homage to some of the great fighters, who have inspired me over the years, in more ways that one.

They may be premier athletes, but, I think i’ve done enough now, to prove that i’m a premier wordsmith, and this piece will definitively explain why …..

Simply, because as the poem states, when it comes to my wordplay ….

It Definitely has a Heavyweight ….

” Punch ” ….

Def’ worth a listen … Samuel King …….

Black History needs no month,

Every day, we create history, but, as per this young and perspective, it seems that our history is only worthy of recognition for what, the same ol’ names, and only for, a monthly time frame !!!

Bullpish’ ….
