"Double Standards" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 29/11/2013

.... "Yo, for my anger settle,
.... Man give me a treble !
.... Wait, i've got to mingle
.... So, give me a single
.... in fact, i'll take a double
.... cos' this may start trouble !"

All These DOUBLE STANDARDS ...
Are Getting Me ANGERED ... !!!!

From Lawrence To Walker ...
To ... Christopher Alder ...

It Seems Some English People CAN'T Deal With The Evil .. !!!
That LURKS In Their House When They Get FOUND OUT ... !!!!!!!

We Blacks Should SHUT MOUTHS And NOT Speak About ...
The Way We Get Treated In Some English Towns ... !!!!

Or Speak of Our LOSSES Because of White Bosses ...
Who've Got EVERY RIGHT ... !?!
To DISMISS Our Plight of Fighting For Lives ...
When Police SHINE THEIR LIGHTS ... !!!!!

Or KEEP Us ..."In The Dark" ... ?
About .... MONKEY CHANTS .... !!!

While Black Soldiers DIE On Police Station Floors ... !!!
They'd Rather Deny How We're Treated Like WHORES ... !!!

AND ... Left On ALL FOURS ...
While THEY Have A LAUGH In Stations And Courts ... !!!!!

The Standards They Have DON'T Add Up Like Math ... !?!
They'd Rather NOT HEAR About The .... " Veneers " ...
Behind Cover Ups That ... EXPOSES STUFF ...

About Just How LOW Their Standards Can Go ... !!!!!
Excuses EXCUSES And YES ... MORE EXCUSES ... !!!?!!!
Are What They Provide To Cover Their LOOSENESS ... !!!

... "All people do wrong !"

Is Their NEW ... " HOT SONG " ... !!!

ALL THIS While ... " Trayvons' " ...
Are LOST Due To Shots From ... Zimmerman Bods' ... !!!!!!!!!!!!

... "Of course we should Massa' !
... Let's erase those chapters !"

See I'm Down With The Man ... Lilian Thuram ...

So Take The Stance THAT ...
DOUBLE STANDARDS Land In The Laps of CLANS ...
Who Stand Next To Racists In Various Places ... !!!!!!
But WON'T Get In The Faces of Those Who Spread HATRED ... !!?!!

I Wonder Sometimes Whether They Recognise ...
Or Take Time To THINK ... About ANYTHING ......
BEYOND .................................... Their Kin .... ?!!!?

It's CLEAR Most DON'T And WON'T Rock The Boat ...
When Within Their Folk They Hear Subtle Jokes ...
That EXPOSE Attitudes With Racist Styled Views ... !!!!!

How Many Make FEUDS Within Their Own Crews ... ?
It Seems There Aren't Many Who TRULY Are READY ...
To REALLY Say Something They'd Rather Do NOTHING ... !!!

And Be YES COMPLICIT With Those Who ARE ... RACIST ... !!!!!

But Are QUICK To Run Lines ...
And Wanna Start Fights With Blacks Who AREN'T SHY ...
To Speak On Their Crimes And Bring Them To LIGHT ... !!!!!

The Question Is .... WHY .... ???

Their Standards Seem ....... " DOUBLED " ... !?!
When Their Feathers Get ... " RUFFLED " ... !!!!

It's CLEAR They Get ... " TROUBLED " ... !!!
And Just ... WILL NOT BE HUMBLED ...

I've Said It Before ... I'll Say It AGAIN ... !!!

It's Like Mos' Def' Said ...

.... "When they do it well, It's seen as success !
.... When we do it well, It's seen as SUSPECT !"

But Who Are ... " SUSPECT " ... ?!?
When Their Standards Are CHECKED ... !?!

It's Time To INSPECT And Let ME Cut The Deck ... !!!
I Ain't From Wu Tang But Know About KLANS ...
And IGNORANT Gangs Who STILL Take The Stance ...

That ... "Immigrants Cause Their Country's Downfall !" ...

So Let's DOUBLE CHECK And Get This CORRECT ...
When They Move Around Across DIFFERENT Towns ...

On YES ... FOREIGN Grounds ...

Does Their Migration Or IMMIGRATION ...
Make For BETTER Nations When How They Get Stationed ...
Seems To Bear NO RELATION To Living In SQUALOR ...
And BEGGING For DOLLARS Or BEGGING For POUNDS ... !?!

That's REALLY NOT HOW They Seem To Get Down ... !?!
Do They FEAR POLICE When They Walk The Streets ... ?
Upon FOREIGN Shores Or Live Like The ... POOR ... ?!?

Their Standards STAY HIGH ... !!!
Wherever They .......... " LIE " ...........
Of Course I Meant ... " LAY " ... !!!

But In The U.K. .... Immigrants AREN'T OKAY ... !!!
And Should YES .......................................... PLAY AWAY .......

UNLESS They Will Play In Ways That Display ....
A Wish To CONFORM And NOT Kick Up A Storm ... !!!
When How They Are Treated Is ... RACISM Born ... !!!!!!!!!!

I DOUBLE UP My Standards So That They Stay HIGH ... !!!
And WILL NOT Have HANDLERS Decide How I Ride .... !!!

And DON'T KEEP Whoring Types ...
Standing .... By My Side ... !!!

And DON'T Hide Behind Lies ...
Or ....... IGNORANT Pride ... !!!!!!!!

Cos' It's Now CLEAR TO ME ... !!!
Some FORGET Their Manners ...
And Seem To Be HAMPERED ... ?!?

When It Comes To Them SEEING ...

How They ... "HOLD" ...

.... " DOUBLE STANDARDS " ....
