Chadwick Boseman

This one f'ing hurts.

James Brown. Jackie Robinson. Thurgood Marshall. The Black Panther. He was so electric he took a comic book superhero that I didn't know too much about and turned him into one of my all-time favorite superheroes just by his performance alone. That scene in Endgame where the portal opens up and he walks through, every time I saw that in the theatre the place would go nuts.

Even more amazing to me is he was diagnosed in 2016, fighting this, going through chemo, and still somehow took on the Marvel films, Marshall, 21 Bridges. Kept going until he couldn't anymore. 

Absolutely crushed.  :(
“But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.” - Martin Luther King, Jr
