“NO You DON’T“ ... A Poem written by Big Virge 10/2/2020

There Really Are Some Quotes...
That Come From Some White Folks...
That Now... Get Up My Nose... !!!

They KEEP CLAIMING That They KNOW...
How It Is For... OPPRESSED Black Souls... ?!?

Who Face Race Hate Pretty Much Every Day...
Whites From The UK And The... USA...

Now Talk About The Shame They Feel About The Way...
Their Ancestors Preyed On Blacks To... Enslave...
As If That’s Enough For Them To Call Bluffs...
When Race Talk Runs... That Clearly STUNS...

So Here’s My Quote About How Things Go...
If You Think That You Know About The Mental Toll...

That’s Produced By The Fold...
Who CHOOSE To ABUSE Who Look Just Like YOU... !!!

My Statement Is This...
It’s Pretty CLEAR That ...... “ You Don’t !!! “...... !!!

I Get It You THINK Cos of The Times We’re In...
That Loving Hip Hop Or Black Women Who Are HOT...
Must Mean You’re COOL And... KNOWLEDGABLE Too... ?!?
You’re FOOLING Yourself It’s A Lie That You Sell... !!!
When You DON'T Stand Against SYSTEMIC Race Hate...

.............. THINK About What I Relate ............. !!!!

If The Company You Work For Deals In HIGH Finance...
Do You Think That The Cash That You Make For Their Cause...
Ensures That The Poor ... Aren’t Poor Anymore... ?!?

Or That EQUALITY REIGNS In... Your Workplace... ?!?
When Most Of Your Bosses DON'T Have A Black Face... !!!

UNLESS It’s PUT ON For Their... " Party Games "... !?!
Just Like The Politicians Who Think It’s... OKAY... !!?!!

If You’ve ALWAYS VOTED You Should Have NOTED...
That You’ve Voted For A System That’s Mission FEEDS RACISM... !!!
So... Where Within You’re Thinking Do You KNOW About BLACK Living... ?!?
You’re Feeding APPARITIONS... Like The System Feeds DIVISION... !!!

And The Idea That White People Now Recognise The EVILS... !!!
That Leave So Many FEEBLE... ESPECIALLY Black People... !!!

Well You’d Better Think Again Cos’ It’s Clear That Most White Heads...
Will... NEVER EVER Get The Levels of DISRESPECT...

.......... That Blacks STILL SUFFER... YES .......... !!!

Because They Choose To Spend Their Time FEEDING Systems...
So Before You Try To Claim That You Know How It Goes...
When it Comes To Racism And How It Affects Black Folks...
There Are Three Words That...You NEED To Know... !!!

They’re... THESE THREE...

....... NO YOU DON’T...... !!!
