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….

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

So, another crazy week in this world of ours ….

Today’s news confirms, that Harvey Weinstein is at the very least now, a convicted sexual predator !

Depressing times are coming for the old fella, as escaping jail doesn’t look likely, before his passing, but time will tell.

As I’ve always maintained, the argument that fear stopped these women from bringing his indiscretions to light immediately, will never sit well with me, but much like the LGBT, and #MeToo movements, a heavy backlash would now seem to face anyone who’d dare question the validity of their arguments, or position.

Well, my argument is still the same, why is no-one asking these women about, the women they allowed to subsequently, have to face this abuser ???

It’s just a QUESTION … ?!?

Not everyone buys the arguments presented, as to why it was so difficult for these women, who seem to have gone on, in many cases, to have successful careers, to stop this man from doing what he’s now been convicted of doing, by speaking up about his abuses, immediately.

So, moving on, A German Mass Shooting, that seems to have been racially motivated, and more craziness, as another crowd of people have had to face a car being driven into them, where children have been amongst the injured !!!

It’s easy to look at the world now, and get depressed, but, what is depression really ???

An inability to deal with the realities of the world, or simple denial of that, which is part of your world, that makes you uncomfortable ???

Well, denial in my opinion, is very closely linked to depression, as said, reality, if you’ve embraced a fantasy existence, may well cause a level of depression, that is very difficult to recover from !!!

However, as this weeks piece will show, from impeachment denial, to weather fronts that are causing floods in the UK, and around the globe, these are things that definitely do not feed happiness and positivity into people’s thinking.

Face the truth, and refuse to run from it, learn from life’s lessons, and maybe just maybe, you might find that this helps you to avoid the woes of …..

Connecting those dots…. Written & Performed by Big Virge

So folks, what a month, and what is on the horizon eh … ?!?

Well, as people have been partying it up, in Barbados, with the odd exception, the mood is very different elsewhere …..

El Paso & Ohio, are dealing with tragedies, of the mass shooting variety, yet again in America !!!

One shooter, who seems to have shot his own sister !?!

I mean SERIOUSLY, Like, WTF is going on in some peoples minds right now … ?!?

Clearly, not so many good things, in some cases, but these days, the conversations i’m hearing, seem to be reflecting the same thing, people acting up, and the general vibe of folks not being particularly cool, in fact, it’s becoming the opposite in a worryingly, increasing number !

The disturbing news from the UK, is the case of a 6 year old child being thrown, YES THROWN, from the 10th floor of The Tate Gallery in London, by, allegedly, a 17 Year Old !!!

The less said about that, the better.

So, moving on, July brought the rise of Boris to PM …..

OH DEAR …. !!!!!!!!

England just had to get their version of Trump in place, to work with the man who is just, throwing insults around, willy nilly, whilst finally obtaining funding for his wall, from the supreme court, even if only temporarily, for now.

Brazil prison riots, Hong Kong and Russia protests, immigrants under fire in Germany, where Walter Lubke, a politician who spoke out for migrants, suddenly ends up dead, after his views were found to be, being shared on right wing websites !!!

Some dots need connecting there it seems, as they do in the case of Charlie Rispoli, the officer who felt the need to say that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, should take a round, as in, get shot, presumably for not being one of The Presidents, biggest fans !?!

Okay, so, what about the husband, who, because of his wife being away with work, thought he’d go on Tinder, only to find his wife was on there already !!!

Funny, in that sick kind of way…. !!!

…. Unlike the situation that has found, Fulham player, Cyrus Christie, alleging that his sister was struck and racially abused, by get this, Fulham supporters, at one of their games … ?!!!?

The stories of woe seem to be endless these days, however, not so much attention seems to be being shown, to the Ebola situation in The Congo !?!

Africans dying …..

Ahhh, that’s not such a big deal to most people, especially in the western world though right … ?!?

They’ve got more important things to worry about, like migrant controls and Brexit’ right !!!!!

Well, I don’t think that it’s something that should be swept under the rug, quite so quickly, because the suggestion is that, over half the cases in the country are not even diagnosed, as of yet … !!!

Well, as Trump says, who knows what to believe from news reports nowadays eh ???

However, if the death toll rises, what will people be saying about this situation, which has already been branded by the, World Health Organisation, as being, ” A Public Health Emergency of International Proportions “, whatever that means, in months, or, years to come … ?!?

Right about now, there are a great many disconnects, globally, in how humans are treating one another, let alone, with the systems that are supposed to keep order in place, both socially and economically, as per the Deutsche Bank Job Losses ….

Things are definitely rocky, when bankers are being sent home folks, take note … !!!!!

So, this weeks piece speaks on a few the reasons why I think we need to ……

Can’t keep a good man down, Mr Bond is Back & BLACK, pon’ a groovy track … !!!

In times like these, never mind Shaft, Times 3 ….

“The Politics of Things” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

The Politics of Things

So folks, another week passes, and plenty is happening !

Boris “ BJ “ Johnson, finds himself in a two horse race to become Brit PM, against Jeremy Hunt, already under some suspicion of vote rigging, (Sound Familiar !?!) whilst apparently having a bit of a domestic at home, where a neighbour claims to have heard a female in some distress !!!

Well, If we are to believe the …

“ Get Off… “, screams, that may have been from his current partner, Carrie Symonds.

One could understand, it is Boris Johnson, after all !!!!!

Bad choice of man Carrie !

So, no sympathy here, especially as he’s going through a divorce, and apparently, has quite the wandering eye, when it comes to the ladies !!!

Further suggestions of Cocaine use, as well as comments coming out from his past, where we black folks are apparently, inferior, and just wards of white chiefs, suggest that his politics will fall perfectly in line with Donald, who figured he’d threaten Iran with military strikes, over a drone !

Tut Tut Donald, a hardened businessman should know, not to pull cards, that, you aren’t willing to play !!!

Dangerous times, when guys like these two, may prove to be the partnership from Hell, for Migrants, people of colour, and amazingly, women !!!

This of course, just goes to show that a fat, bank balance, quells some women’s need for a strong, good looking man, to lie down with. They literally, in the case of Boris, like a fat guy, who is as bigoted, as he is rude, as long as his bank balance is full !

Spoilt … ???

Well, it does seem so, a Bullingdon Club Boy Too !!!!!

A group with some shady tales, surrounding their movements, as well as being a group that David Cameron was also part of too !!!

Nothing good can come from a Johnson / Trump relationship, in my view, which leads me to the news that, Democrat front runner, Joe Biden, also has a history of affiliating himself with, blatant racists, who he claims, he chose to work with, because it makes sense to try to work with those, who you disagree with, and that his buddy, James Eastland, was not,

“That Bad A Guy.”

This same guy, who made these comments at a segregationist rally, not so long ago !

“In every stage of the bus boycott we have been oppressed and degraded because of black, slimy, juicy, unbearably stinking n*****s.” According to Robert Caro’s Master Of The Senate, Eastland went on to urge the crowd to “abolish the Negro race” with “guns, bows and arrows, slingshots, and knives.”

Oh and let’s not forget that Mr. Biden was Mr. Obama’s Vice President !

We are in very strange times, when neither he, nor Donald Trump, feel any need to apologise for embracing bigots, or, in the case of Trump, embracing, death penalty calls, for young black men, who were eventually proven to be innocent of crimes, that seem to have had confessions, coerced by police, in the case of the, Central Park Five, because he says, “ The boys pleaded guilty !”, even though, as said, their confessions were obtained under extreme circumstances and pressure, from the aforementioned, police officers !

It’s a crazy old time, politically, from The West to Africa, and even as far afield as Hong Kong !

Protest after protest, against what the title of this weeks piece affirms, as being the way that this world is run …..

A system that is as fractured, as it is biased, because of essentially ….
