“Harassment” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, as things start to reopen in various places, something that never seems to be shutdown permanently, is the different forms of harassment, that clearly comes from everyone, from the police, to cancel brigades, men and yes, women too, because harassment is not beyond them either, so don’t get it confused.

I’ve had my derrière pinched by females, and had certain females harass me about touching my hair, so ladies, don’t even go there, because some of you do harass men, and other women too !

However, what is becoming sadly apparent, is the level of harassment that people in power seem to feel, that they can dish out to basically anyone, without feeling any sense of guilt at all.

The idea that, due to being a famous sportsperson, politician, actor or world leader, that this entitles you to harass people without any sense of remorse, or feeling that punishment can come their way, is truly astonishing, in a time where so many are apparently, waking up, from their years of slumber !

So, let’s get right to some of these recent revelations, starting with New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo, who is under serious pressure to resign from the post, that his late father held, due to multiple accusations of sexual harassment, of his co-workers, as well as others apparently ?

He of course, denies any such conduct, but his line of defence being about,

“ Generational “ … and …
“ Cultural “ … Differences,

being the reason for these allegations, is just ridiculous, in all honesty.

A Democrat, whose family have a legacy that connects to politics, as it does to mainstream media, as his brother Chris, works at CNN, but interestingly, having interviewed Andrew on various occasions, conveniently didn’t find a spot for this story on his regular Tuesday night show, upon this news breaking …

Hmmm … one has to wonder why right ?

Well, not if you’re smart and recognise how power players protect those, who are caught with their hands in the cookie jar, or on breasts, necks and asses, as would seem to be the case here !

The figure currently stands at 11 women, who, Attorney General, Letitia James has determined as being victims of his unwanted advances !

The 63 year old is now facing impeachment, and questions over deliberate misinformation regarding Covid deaths and more, dating back to 2020.

The disturbing thing being, it’s taken until he’s 63 , for these things to even have been brought to public attention ?

Just incredible !

This word harassment, has its place within the Covid’ vaccine debate, as those now vaccinated, seem to want to harass those who are not so keen to take shots, or wear masks, to the point where people are fighting on airplanes.

However, in the case of Maxwell Berry, he allegedly grabbed female attendants breasts, and was so abusive on the flight, that he had to be duct taped to his seat !

Like WTF … !?!

Once again, having allegedly made the claim that his parents are worth a couple of million dollars, this seems to have made him feel as if he could do and say, whatever he wanted, to whoever he felt like.

However, he just seems to be a spoilt 22 year old, who due to being white, will probably walk away with a slap on the wrist.

The fact that he’s free on a 1500 dollar bond, and the fact that the FBI, have already declined to pursue, federal felony charges, even though he also punched a male flight attendant, confirm that the term, ” White Privilege “, matters a bit more than black lives and rights !

This is clearly why the rules for harassment, don’t seem to run in quite the same way that they do, for black men, ask Bill Cosby, who could only get a reprieve for his alleged abuses of women, via a legal technicality.

However, I say that to highlight the fact that in his case, he has NOT been cleared of the actual sexual harassment, and rape charges brought against him.

Once again, the power of the mighty dollar, affording him the kind of legal representation that is likely to save the likes of Andrew Cuomo.

Talking of the law, well, Covid’ Lockdowns or not, police harassment has not stopped, and continues to disturb, due to more and more visual evidence of the things that were once seen as being, figments of black peoples imagination.

However, in the case of 30 year old, Declan Jones, from the West Midlands Police, assaults on two different black men in two days, and the kicking and punching of a 15 year old boy, who was not threatening him, being captured on video, would seem to prove otherwise, emphatically, even though he is still denying that he assaulted anyone ?

Joker.

Incredibly, this happened last year, in April 2020, during the first UK Lockdown !

The sad and ridiculous part is that, Judge Shamim Qureshi, who one could assume to be of Asian descent, chose to use the word,

“ Paranoia “,

…. rather than Racist, in terms of the reason for Mr. Jones actions, due to what he described as an,

“ Unconscious Bias “,

…. because of officer Jones, previous interactions with violent individuals.

An incredible assessment, that falls in line with the type of rhetoric, coming from Priti’ Patel, and her boss BJ Johnson, regarding racism in Britain.

Racial harassment can only be determined to be the case, when a black person dies, seemingly.

At least he has been charged with assault, however, the likelihood of any serious punishment, would seem to be unlikely.

Also, what about the video of the 5 Miami Police officers, that has now surfaced, resulting in them facing criminal charges for again, assaulting a black male, Dalonta Crudrup, who allegedly attacked an officer with a motorised scooter, that he had illegally parked, with kicks to the head, whilst he was on the ground and handcuffed ?

It is then alleged, that they then, also roughed up an individual, 28 year old, Khalid Vaughn, who was filming the first assault, who they then also arrested.

Vaughn was then charged with, wait for it …

Impeding, provoking and YES, HARASSING the now almost, 20 odd officers, whilst filming them from some, 12 – 15 feet away from the fracas.

Charges that were quickly dropped, once the video footage became available….

What a surprise … NOT.

We are in a crazy time, where the slightest infraction with women, can get you charged, or cancelled, as it can when speaking on gender, like it has for rapper, Da Baby, who has quickly apologised for seemingly, harassing LGBTQ sensibilities, for statements made whilst on stage, just this week, but the never ending harassment of black people by police, sees no such punitive threat, that scares, or, stops the police from continually indulging in these, intimidatory, and violent acts.

So, the question one has to ask is, are all these things treated the same way, in this new …

“ Woke “ … modern world ?

Well, clearly not when you are famous, or have huge amounts of financial power, that can secure the right legal representation.

So, this spoken word drop affirms that this is nothing new for black men in particular, and nothing has really been done to stop police harassing us, from when we’re just walking the street, to, going shopping, standing waiting for a friend, or, as was the case in this true story, just trying to get to work in the morning, as I was on this day, when I was the victim of the same old use of police ……

“Are These Things Right ?” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, it’s gonna be a hot topic for a while now, i’d imagine ….

Well, behind Covid, Delta, Bravo, re-opening of things, and re-closinbg of things, of course…

Blah di Blah … ?!?

The incredible reaction that Marcus Rashford, Jadon’ Sancho and Bukayo Saka have received for missing their penalties in the European Championship Final, against Italy.

Well, I am not even remotely surprised, and can’t believe that it’s right for people to be so, apparently angry, about the reaction to them, costing England the win, when that clearly was not the case, because this is just the English way right … ???

I say that because, it hardly seems as though it was right for most of the team to be, behind the ball, for the next 110 minutes, after taking a shock lead within the first ten ?

Come on Gareth, win the game from there, and take it away from the Italians, but nope, park the bus, and keep it parked in the hope that, it won’t get broken into ?

Well, you’re not likely to get past the finish line, that way now are ya ?!?

So, his tactics were clearly wrong, as were his choices for penalty takers, as he seems quite willing to accept the blame for the loss.

However, this racism issue raising its head so soon after, the report that recently claimed England to be a great model for race integration in white dominated, western nations, only seems to apply……

… Until a black footballer misses a penalty for them in an international game !

Well, in actual fact, if you’re black, in pretty much any game, which does beggar belief, because it’s clear that even in these, Black Lives, and Inclusivity Matters Times, that this isn’t quite right now is it ?

The same can be said for the incredibly, hypocritical stances, now being taken by, Prime Minister….

“ piccaninies “

Boris Johnson….

…. and Madame….

“ Gesture Politics “

Priti Patel, who are suddenly both claiming, that fans should be ashamed of their racist actions ???

…. when neither of them, were particularly supportive of the team taking a knee, in apparent solidarity against racism, previously.

If that isn’t, “ Gesture Politics “, then i’d like to know what is ?

The kind of talk coming from other political figures, has also shown the disturbing trait of wishing to throw, any kind of stances against racism, under Gareth’s bus rather quickly, from suggestions that Marcus Rashford should maybe get on with practicing penalties, rather than politics, to the standard backtracking of comments, that have been found to be less than supportive of actually, tackling the issue, rather than paying it lip service, whilst being quick to denigrate the kind of positive things that Rashford in particular, has achieved outside of the game.

It’s such a predictable thing, the blatantly wrong behaviour of a …

” small number ” … of England Fans …

who, from vandalising and leaving a trail of disgusting waste in their wake, and that’s BEFORE the game is even played, then swiftly resort to, racist, vitriol filled attacks, and hatred suddenly coming out, that seems to surprise everyone, from the players themselves, to the political commentators, whose hypocrisy is just a wonder to see and hear !

However, these black guys are paid very well to be where they are, and as many are now saying, don’t face the kind of exclusion in selection policies, that have been an issue for black players donning the three lions shirt, no matter what sport it is, but especially in the football arena, previously.

If you don’t want the flack guys, refuse to play, you’re getting enough money elsewhere now right ?

It makes more sense than becoming a scapegoat, for a kick of a ball, which cannot be deemed to be the, only reason for a loss, when the team had more than 11 players, have various kicks at the ball, for over 120 minutes !

Now that hardly seems very reasonable, or remotely fair, but, as with racism, which has made me post this piece, that reflects on a young black mans death in England, not so long ago, due to a racist attack.

Anthony Walker … RIP

There is one question that enters my mind, when it comes to these individuals, who don’t seem to have two brain cells that actually work as they should, in their mind.

My question for them is a simple one …..

“Problems” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So people, quite the last few days it’s been !

Hurricane Elsa caused considerable chaos on her way through Barbados, resulting in me for one, being without power for, essentially a week !!!

It was clearly problematic for the authorities and leadership in Barbados to have been effectively prepared for what is predicted to possibly be, the first of a pretty rough hurricane season this year !

An issue that needs to be looked at, especially when internet access seemed to be more important to get back, than providing energy so that people could preserve food, in the midst of the problematic issue of Covid, literally causing haywire, like the party of the same name, seemingly organised, due to the need for tourism to be maintained, to sustain the economy in Barbados.

An issue that’s causing some problems for locals, who seem a little perturbed at the fact that, tourists can come and still do their thing, whilst locals are being warned of further curfews, and Lockdowns, due to said, Covid-19 !

Incredibly, the Delta Variant seems to have been on the vaccine hit list, somehow, BEFORE it even existed, as suddenly, media outlets are pushing the narrative that infection rates are only rising in regions where, vaccination uptake is low.

Huh… ???
Okay, fair enough.

I’ll say no more on that, for fear of being labelled as one of the, ” Problem People “, who are anti-vaxxers

However, globally, problems are proving to be a very regular vision, from the type of flooding and heatwaves, that if you’re a religious believer, you might say are proving to be Biblical.

I’m not sure about all that, but, there are a number of clearly worrying trends, when it comes to climate, and nature showing it’s distaste for humans being in certain places !

A subject that suitably leads to the …

SHOCKING REVELATION… !!!

LOL … that England isn’t quite as good an example of race acceptance, when it comes to black footballers stopping the European Cup from….

“ Coming Home “,

…. as many seemed to believe was about to happen, as a result of Gareth Southgate’s team, reaching the final quite comfortably.

However, the problem is, that when you’re playing for a country whose fans would rather gain illegal entry to the game, than to just watch it on TV, in the midst of a PANDEMIC, who seemingly, hide their true thoughts about black representation for their nation on an international level, that are those that offend their rather, bigoted sense of national pride. ESPECIALLY When These Black Players MISS Penalties, that could be seen as costing them, their desperately wanted, first major international trophy, for well, basically FOREVER !

You have to wonder how comfortable these players could possibly be, when it comes to stepping up to take penalties, for fear of the repercussions, should they miss.

Well the problem of racist attitudes, so soon after such fervour for the, Black Lives Matter Movement, would still seem to be a fairly big one in the so called,

….. UNITED Kingdom …..

Again, LOL !!

However, I’ll get into that more in my next post.

The problems of the world are occurring in many ways, politically and socially, as protests, rioting and looting, is happening in rather too many places for comfort, from Cuba, where it has been a very rare occurrence, to see people in the streets protesting, according to the mainstream media, about a lack of medicine, as in vaccines, as well as food shortages, and discontent with the countries governance in such difficult times, to South Africa too, where, after ex-president, Jacob Zuma’s arrest and imprisonment, unrest has caused volatile clashes, due to his supporters rioting, protesting, or, of course, as Western Media will say, looting !

However, footage of shopping malls, did not indicate fake news, it just looks as if they were robbed by the whole town, with absolutely NOTHING left to be taken, which has lead to white militia groups forming, to protect their businesses, land and property, with loaded weapons !

So PROBLEMS ?!?

Yeah South Africa’s got em’ !!!

As does the UK and America, with violent acts, as well as flooding in New York and the streets of London, where subways and cars being submerged in water, is indeed causing problems for a lot of folks !

If you were to go from country to country, across the globe, one has to wonder just how many of them are functioning in a relatively, problem free manner ?

A claim that can’t be made for Haiti, after the assassination of President Moise, where his home was raided, and he took numerous bullets before dying, while interestingly, his wife somehow survived the attack, which if the arrests are anything to go by, was done by a rather large number of men !

So of course, we’re hearing all kinds of versions of events, regarding these leaders who are being imprisoned, or killed.

The biggest problem for those of us paying attention, is trying to figure out what’s true from what’s not, when it comes to the explanations being given for why these things are happening.

So, I’ll leave it there, apart from to say that in the case of the Haitian President, could the apparent fact that he was anti vaccines, have anything to do with his sudden removal from power, in such a brutal, violent manner ?

There are so many questions these days, regarding everything from the safety issues surrounding taking vaccines, to the issues surrounding the re-opening, or, locking down of countries !

Matters that, like this spoken word drop, are those now filled with an abundance of……
