Black man going and fight and die in white man conflict.
Those were different times, and many people thought differently then. At least show respect to those people who thought it was the “right” thing to do, or who actually had no choice financially. Things may have changed, and you can decide whether to go to war or not, although no war is good, but your comments are actually irrelevant in this context.
Totally agree with you irrelevant. Some key board jockies like “Why” try to come across as philosophical and only reveal themselves to be total morons.
Back in the day Remembrance day was a big thing. We (schools children) would be given poppies to sell or we would buy them and wear them on our shirts. The monies collected would go towards our servicemen. On “Poppies Day” or Remembrance Day, the parade would be a major event. What we’ve had over the past years is a far cry from what it used to be. How many people knew today is Remembrance Day? Hardly anyone.
” Old Soldiers never die, they just fade away “
The black man HAD to be there, to help stop the Nazi disease, because had Hitler succeeded, he and his allies, Italy and Japan, would have reigned havoc on this Planet. Including the Caribbean!! Great Britain and its allies won the war with the help of those from the Empire, so don’t be so ignorant!!
It was a huge thing back in the day everyone wore poppies, it shows you how little respect and honor society has now in 2023!
Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
If it weren’t for these old guys in the pic, these St.lucian WW2 veterans who fought together with the Allies to defeat the German Nazis who were determined to take over the World based on their white supremacy Aryan theory that they were the master race, you would probably have been born and continuing to live as a slave for the Third Reich, speaking German and with no rights and liberties. Not even the freedom or democracy to post moronic statements on the internet like you just did. go learn some history and see why these old timers died for your freedom.
Funny after hundreds of years of “freedumb” so many negroes still suffering from Massa Adoration Syndrome. Stop worshiping the pale man.
You’re still a moron.
