Expert .. Written and Performed by Big Virge

So, who isn’t an expert these days now eh ?

It doesn’t seem to require much more than a bit of research, googling, or just having an opinion, to be a modern day expert on the woes of the world, all of a sudden ?

You only have to go onto a social media feed, to see people spouting their views on, any, and everything, from creative talents, to the Corona Virus, Policing, or the dreaded subject of Racism.

It is quite disturbing to me, to see how quickly people claim to know what’s right, from what’s wrong these days, that then seems to lead to, subsequent attacks that are then made by others, insisting on the apparent fact, that people haven’t researched, are being biased, or that they are just being stupid, or ignorant.

Thus comes the expert, who knows everything, even though their only information comes from a bias, or a source that works for their bias.

So with Corona, it’s been Dr. Fauci, against the likes of Trump.
A battle that caused all sorts of dissension, and divisive views about everything from, wearing masks to vaccines, social distancing and lockdowns.

So then, in comes President Biden, and suddenly, there’s a little less reluctance to resist the vaccine rollout, and everything connected to Coronas demise !!!

Have the experts changed ?

Nope, but the sway of power and influence, means that whoever the expert is, whose an ally of, said President, the bias is swiftly removed.

How easily people are swayed !

The next monster in most rooms now, is the history, treatment, and current state of affairs, relating to the black race, that is a subject, that is now being extensively covered in documentaries and studies, by an abundance of black historians, scientists, doctors and their ilk, whose reading and information, must again, make them experts right ?

Well, so many who are listening to them, believe these people.

However, questions will always remain as to the validity of arguments that aren’t supported by evidence, because of it being, allegedly whitewashed from history, so, how exact are their expert opinions ?

A question that leads suitably to the individuals involved in this report on racism in modern Britain.

Lead by teachers, ex police, lawyers, business and community leaders, alongside of Samuel Kasumu, Boris Johnson’s main, black matters expert, honcho, community adviser, or, whatever other term could be used, to oversee, not only the report, but in Samuels case, the effort to get black folks reluctant to get vaccinated….

VACCINATED … !!!

…. by using, NOT Scientists or Medical Professionals, but, a knighted comedian, and actors, to try to convince black communities, via a video, to get with the programme, and get vaccinated as soon as possible !

Oh but wait !!!

As soon as the race report comes out, Mr. Kasumu jumps the Conservative ship, due to its content, firstly, denying institutional racism, and then, suggesting that as white majority nations go.

Britain is the best one to follow in terms of its racial integration, and progression, when it comes to how it’s minimised, racist behaviour….

Except for young, Neo nazis like Ben Hannam, finding his way into the Metropolitan Police,, which according the news report, posted on the, 1st of APRIL, on BBC News, HUH Hmmm,

was as EASY as … ” TICKING A BOX “.

Good job there Britain, especially with the further line of doubt cast on his Nazi tendencies, which can apparently be linked to his being Autistic ?!?

I hope Autism organisations are paying ATTENTION !

Don’t believe me, the article makes it quite clear !

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-56414713

So, why out the door so quickly Samuel ?

Huh … ???

…. Even if you wished to leave some time before the report came out, as had been alleged, why dude ???

HUH … ???

As for the likes of Tony Sewell and Keith Fraser, being an ex teacher and police officer, makes them experts on a subject that would clearly require a lot more input from, young black people in particular, who have been victims of police brutality and racist treatment in recent times.

Mr. Sewell and Mr. Fraser would seem to be less than qualified to speak on a subject that spreads, much farther and wider than their, rather lofty positions in British Institutions !

As was said to me this weekend, when black folks get into positions where they can perhaps influence white folks to at least, look at themselves in a critical way, saying the wrong thing could get you in trouble fast, so it’s difficult to believe that the report, which many seem to think, has once again, swept the issue of racism in the UK, under the rug, has been run by those without personal interests to protect, rather than, as we’re constantly told about this stuff, been run by an independent, suitably neutral, group of individuals.

Experts are hard to find, in any field, let alone in an area where so many factors have to be considered.

It’s hardly a job for a government, whose leader has been found to use, let’s call them, insensitive terms for racial groups, not so long ago….

The other factor that should perhaps be brought up in terms of recent times and attitudes coming to the fore, is BREXIT, isn’t it ?

There might be some interesting stories of the initial and subsequent reactions to the result of Britain saying yes to leaving the EU.

VERY Interesting stories, that would show that racism suddenly found a new home in the HALF of the populous who voted to leave.

Of course, nothing racist came from the leave voters now did it ???

Anyway, I think that the idea of expertise, is one that really needs to be checked by a lot of people now, who perhaps, need to take hard looks at themselves, rather than be so quick to get on high horses, when they are not in the best positions to be casting stones, or aspersions, or offering advice about things that none of us are particularly clear on, like say, taking a vaccine, which may not have killed many people, but has yet to be proven, to not be a danger to some, due to certain side effects, that have now come to light.

I go back to the Chris Rock statement on bad eggs in police forces, when it comes to these vaccinations !

One bad egg, is still, one too many !!!

Especially when there is no recourse, for legal action, if something bad does happen to someone taking a jab !

It’s a crazy time to just be, believing all and sundry about serious issues, experts or not, some things are just not to be taken at peoples’ word.

So, this poem reflects on a few things that i’ve experienced, seen and heard from self proclaimed experts, in recent times, who, as said, should perhaps check themselves, before running their mouths…..

I am thankful to many of them now, because what they’ve all taught me is that, when it comes to what any of us read, have been told, or think that we know, it’s probably not very wise to tell yourself, that you are some kind of….

“April Who ?” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

Okay folks, so it’s that time of year, where the first of the month is a time for tricks, or, what we have been lead to believe are, April Fools pranks and jokes….

Well, i’m a little more concerned about the issue of the foolish behaviour, and, fooling of people, that seems to be such a problem within humanity now, because it’s clearly foolish to believe in much that comes out of the media, and government mouths nowadays !

There are fools of all varieties in various places, and they are clearly not shy of exhibiting their foolishness.

I have recently had dealings with a Barbadian Lawyer, who shall remain nameless, who clearly thinks that she’s the smartest cookie, in a pack of nuts, because she’s clearly not as smart as she thinks, in terms of her ability to deceive, and to dupe people into believing her nonsense, so that she can get at their money.

SMH !!!

However, as said, fools like her, are just not worth the effort.

Lawyers are a breed who, generally like to play the fool, when it comes to their dealings with people, regarding money and property, and the list goes on with them, but who are they really fooling…

Clients or Themselves… ?

The idea of friendship too, breeds many a foolish decision, or act, when it comes to business, trust, and the belief that those you believe to be friends, will be there for you in the end, or will simply support you whilst you’re alive.

However, there are also people who seem keen to brandish others as being well, shady at best, when they actually aren’t quite as bad as they seem to believe ?

It’s so crazy to really see how foolish most people are, as you get older and wiser, and start to see things, and people for what they REALLY are, as opposed, to how you’d, LIKE To BELIEVE them to be.

This suitably segue ways to all these vaccines, and the prospect of a summer of things re-openiong, and passports to freedom, once you’ve been vaccinated.

However, the problem seems to be that, as medics and some scientists are suggesting, the prospect of all these variants, and, mutated strains of this Corona thing, becoming more and more advanced, and not necessarily being ever totally negated to the point where everyone can move freely in the knowledge that they can be fully immunised, or made safe from contracting a new strain, or, Corona Remix, as it were, of this disease, is far from certain.

It does seem a little foolish to believe, that things will suddenly be all good in the hood, once everyone, either gets tested, or is vaccinated, because as is readily being claimed now, the virus could return with serious venom, at any time ???

Life is throwing so many angles at people these days, that many are being quickly fooled into believing things, without any substance, to support what they are believing in, or buying into ?

It’s a dangerous time to be playing cards, without the deck being stacked in your favour, and it clearly isn’t wise to be taking risks with your life, for vaccination programmes, that are far from verified as being, totally safe !

I read today, that certain medics now believe that vaccination shots could in the future become, a very regular occurrence, to ensure that people cannot contract new variants of this flu, I mean, where does, or could this all end… ???

Will it ever end … ?

There are many things that are still very unclear, as to where this Corona Virus will steer humanity in the future, so, the re-opening of certain countries, doesn’t seem quite so sound a plan, when others, not so far away, are once again locking down, to apparently contain new variants of this virus, that clearly isn’t ready to go away just yet !

There are also, a few too many people in influential positions, who are neither, scientists or politicians, who are now using their fame, to enforce the movement to get those reluctant to get vaccinated, to do so, as if these people need to be encouraged to take a jab, because they are not thinking of others, or of their own futures. A future in a world where there is much uncertainty, from economic recoveries, to the gathering of crowds at events again, to new tech trends that may well fool us all into going to a place, where the little freedoms we once believed to be, ” Freedom “, become a distant thing of the past.

The internet is a place where people are fooled regularly now, but the bigger prospect of what big tech companies, and political factions may be planning for it’s usage, and restrictive powers, may be something that will create a whole legacy of things that may well do, much more than just restrict peoples freedom of speech.

It could, and already is being used to curb, freedom of monetary movement, with digital transfers becoming more and more prevalent, let alone the whole idea of what surveillance powers it may avail in the end, for those behind how it is used.

What purpose it will serve for them, and most importantly of all, for whom exactly ?

So this weeks drop, throws a little lyrical twist on the ideal that there is one day for people to be fooled, or to act like one.

April the 1st may be that day, however, my view on this is, just hold on for a minute, fools make foolish movements, every single day, somewhere in the world, every second of the day !!!

So, when it comes to the idea of being fooled, and by whom….

The question that enters my mind now, regarding this ideal…

Is ….
