“The poppy has become a symbol of racism – I have never worn one, and now I never will”

Looks like we have another symbol to play with.

—“Yet the poppy just manages to sneak onto the screen of BBC World; it is permissable, you see, the very last symbol that “our” dead remain more precious than the millions of human beings we have killed, in the Middle East for example, for whom we wear no token of remembrance. . . . And in this sense, I fear that the wearing of the poppy has become a symbol of racism.”—
