Cause he was human being who battled stage iii/iv cancer while filming culturally relevant movies, fighting social justice, advocating for black communities, volunteering his limited time left in earth to visit hospitals. Yes he was black but you left out everything else that made him the person he was cause you can’t see past the color of his skin. This form of cancer isn’t talked about enough, due to embarrassment. It’s more common among Black Americans than other groups. It’s increasingly common among younger people in general. He had an enormous cultural impact in the short time he was a known actor, less than a decade. If all of those things together bring one more person to get checked, then it’s worth it. You knob.
Also bad. More attention should be paid to the impoverished generally. However, per capita rates of poverty are higher among Blacks than whites, even accounting for pockets like Appalachia. Therefore, generally, the problems associated with poverty disproportionately affect Blacks. How do the rates of colon cancer among the Appalachian people, who are predominantly white and who’ve consistently ranked as one of the poorest demographics for decades, compared with those of African Americans?
