No. The first world war is largely irrelevant now seen as hardly any of the truly eligible beneficiaries are even alive. Most of the money that goes into poppy sales is being used to care for ex-serviceman and women of recent wars- namely Afghanistan, and I will not subsidize people who actively sought out and killed Muslims, period.

You don't understand my point. There's this underlying unconscious mindset of British/american lives meaning more than the lives that they kill and more in the name of "combating terrorism" what do they call those victims again yh "collateral damage" that's all that a brown face or black face means.

Yep, I think that the British/Americans are always seen as heroes in the wars, but they're killing hundreds, that's what i mean by certain situations

Be wearing a poppy this year?
Just asking because one thing i have noticed is that black people and asians in general tend not to wear poppies or they wear them significantly less than white people.
If not say why
because there are significantly less non white people in the country?

Wouldn't it have been easier to have said non white?

Anyway, maybe. Depends on if I see a seller and have money.
No because brown (asian) ppl and black folks face different levels of issues. It would be a form of erasure to group them as one or as PoC (ppl of colour)

Remembrance Day is a memorial day to celebrate and remember those that gave there life to defend the country which you live in today, the way we live and the freedom that we live it in. If it wasn't for those brave men and woman, we and our loved ones would be living a very, very different life.

I'm English and don't think it's completely necessary. You don't need to wear one to respect/think about what happened. However, when I replace the one I lost a few days ago, I will be wearing a poppy

No, I won't be.

I don't support war, and I especially don't support the killing of civilians, or the people who kill civilians.

I'd rather remember the thousands of civilians killed in Dresden, rather than the RAF pilots who dropped bombs on them. I'd rather remember the millions of innocents killed, rather than those that killed them.

That's why I don't wear poppies

I don't wear them but I'm more than happy to donate to it.

I don't know what to think about a British citizen who doesn't respect our armed forces or veterans.

You're good at isolating a single situation and taking a moral high ground from it.

If you didn't realise, we were fighting a war, people tend to die. You're no hero sitting on your house waiting for a bomb to drop. You are if you risk your life to protect the piece of soil you come from.

No, I don't need to commemorate the soldiers with a poppy, a silent reflection will suffice for me on the 11th.

Why? Why are they deserving of respect, just because they are in the armed forces?? There are going to be some real ********s, and some really nice people in the army

Why should I respect the ********s just because theyre in the armed forces?

Some veterans can be ********s as well. Why should I respect them?

There are also some racist soldiers, and some racist ex soldiers as well

(Notice I said some. I know they arent the majority)

I saw a soldier post on facebook "Muslims are all terrorists. We should kill them all" Or words to that effect (he had pictures of him in Germany, with other soldiers, so this guy looked like an actual soldier, and not someone pretending to be one)


Why should I respect them? Why should I respect that genocidal maniac?
