“The Drag Down” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

Okay folks, so, another week passes, and sadly, so have both, Yaphet Kotto, from the one and only, Black Villain Themed Bond Movie,

“ Live And Let Die “,

A trailblazer, and door opener, for many black actors who followed, and the…

One And Only … Marvellous Marvin Hagler !!!

RIP,

A true boxing great, and by almost all accounts, a very cool dude outside of the ring.

Two black men, who, in my opinion, should be held up as icons, and black men who should be celebrated, and shown as positive role models for young black people !

However, there are a few in the modern era, who at best, need to be, as it were,
VERIFIED, before being given props for doing what they do.

Swiftly moving on, I was told this week that I apparently, have a problem with my skin colour, which has never been said to me before, but interestingly, it came from a lighter skinned black person, which was, quite the attempted, drag down !?!

However, the idea that every black person whose making money, and has gained some kind of … “ Societal Success “ …

… should be celebrated, I do have a problem with, and if that means that I hate my own skin colour, because I’ll call the kettle black, when it is, then so be it, because as I’ve said before, I deal in truth and accountability.

You make a mistake, acknowledge it, don’t pass the buck, or lie.

The reason I say this, is because we do have BLACK LIARS.

SHOCK HORROR … I said it, it’s true !

Just watch, JUDAS and The Black Messiah, for, ACTUAL, FACTUAL PROOF !!!

It’s a sad state of affairs, when you can’t call out your own people, for things that they do, that you don’t agree with, without having yourself be dragged down by, so called, woke, or conscious black peoples, because they just don’t like to hear THE TRUTH ?

Like SERIOUSLY … ?!?

Grow some !!!

…. and stop hiding behind, some subtle, infantile attack, like the playboy in the playground, trying to impress the stupid chicks, because that is played out.

Talking of which, there is a video floating around youtube, that speaks a little on, Jermaine Fowler, who plays Eddie Murphy’s son in the new, Coming 2 America flick, that seems to be affirming that, he is yet another black actor, who has dressed in drag, to some shockingly convincing effect, and that unsurprisingly, his mother is apparently now, a lesbian !

This video then goes on to, drag down these black men in Hollywood for dressing in drag, or as women for roles.

Wesley Snipes, Eddie Murphy, Ving Rhames, and the list goes on, and sadly on …. !!!

Add in, that noticeably, this movie chose to remind us that Arsenio Hall, had done so in the original too, which does make one think about the dragging down of black masculinity in today’s entertainment world, at any, or basically, every opportunity.

Oh and before folks start, save the, SO WHAT, It’s acting rhetoric, because everything that is put out into the world creates an energy, that transmits through those that see it, be they, adults or children.

It’s not about hating, it’s actually about being informed, and recognising the truth about people, and maybe how they get to be where they are.

It’s also something, that I personally do not believe, is good for children to see of any race, however, as I’m black, for black children especially.

As a lot of heads are now saying, each to their own, but people should recognise and know, that if others don’t wanna go down that road, neither they, nor their children should be coerced, or forced into doing so, but I digress.

The dragging down of truth speakers, and free speaking in today’s world, is an increasingly disturbing issue in my eyes, especially as a free speaking, and thinking artist, with cancel nonsense being, here, there and basically, everywhere now, it’s a subject that clearly is relevant to the recent apology by Nick Cannon, to the White Jewish populous, for his sitting with Professor Griff, within the last year, to basically claim to be an, ” Original Jew “, because he apparently felt, that he should let White Jewish people know that they were,

Faking The Funk…

… in terms of their TRUE IDENTITY, which Professor Griff concurred with, and has received adverse press for before, when referring to Jews in what was deemed as being, a negative, or, anti-semitic way, by not only, the American Media, but by Chuck D himself, allegedly, who then again, allegedly, expelled him from the group for a time, over it.

It seems that this was all sorted out within Public Enemy, however, Nick Cannon has, as said, suddenly stepped away from this issue, and has now retained a show, that he had been previously removed from, and has now, even sat with a Rabbi, who essentially called his original statement, abhorrent, anti-Semitic, and hateful.

This has subsequently lead to, DL Hughley waging in, to apparently attack Professor Griff for his position too !

Now this week I saw a recent Instagram Video, where Professor Griff was cool, but called both Cannon and Hughley,

Flunkies…

…. and have now seen an earlier response video to DL Hughley, where he goes in on Hughley, for bowing to his white masters, and also asks, what exactly Hughley meant when saying, ” The Steak ain’t worth the sizzle. ”

Professor Griff basically, drags him down a couple of pegs, off of his apparent, pedestal of success !

I think that it is fair to say that, Professor Griff is a STAND UP Black Man, a musical icon, and a Truth Speaker.

However, can the same be said of Cannon, Hughley, and a plethora of these, young black modern day successes, who in many ways, owe their ability to have success in the entertainment industry, to the likes of Professor Griff ?

Now can they … ???

…. when they dress as women, or bow to their, Hollywood Owners for a pay cheque, or, quickly turn on, and drag down their own peers, when there are lines that they have toed, that their peers, and apparent friends, flat out,

REFUSE TO DO … !?!

Again, can it really be said that they are straight up individuals ?!?

I get it, if you’re Black in America, and make large amounts of money, this must mean that you’re cool, and have earned it righteously, like if you, let’s say, marry royalty ….

This automatically then means, that you’re someone to be looked up to …

Like REALLY … ?!?

I think that some black folks are getting a little too caught up in, the bright lights, fancy cars, big houses and dollar bills, and getting themselves confused.

The earning of money …..

One of the biggest factors in black divisions, and enslavement, should suddenly be seen as being, what makes you RIGHTEOUS … ???

Like … RIGHTEOUS … !?!

It’s the standard that most, if not almost all of us live by now, I get that, and have made mine, and have spent mine, because when I die, it will not be what defines me.

There are very few forms of making it, if any at all now, that are not tainted, so, let’s not be issuing plaudits to everyone whose made a dollar, into a million, just because they have, because we don’t know every last thing that they may have done, to get it folks, and that’s not a joke !

Think on it……..

Furthermore, when people drop bombs on you that speak the truth, that you don’t like, don’t throw your toys out of your pram, because you don’t like what you like to dish out, being thrown back in your face, because it seems to be the case, more and more these days, that people are being incredibly hypocritical, when it comes to dishing out, what this weeks Spoken Word drop covers….

The dragging of peoples names and characters, through the mud, because you can’t, as Jack said,

” HANDLE THE TRUTH ” ….

As I was told today, by a Ghanaian brother, the old African expression, still holds plenty of weight …

” A Speaker of Truth, has no friends … ”

Nuff’ said, which seems to be why, in Professor Griff’s case, and recently in mine, we are always subject to, the views of individuals who like to now, employ the use of….
