Chadwick Boseman dies at 43 after 4 year battle with colon cancer
This was just two years ago.— I am Zachary Whitten, an Idiot (@ZacharyWhitten) August 29, 2020
He knew he had cancer then.
He was fighting just like these kids, and he made time for them. Made time to make them smile.
Just two years...
The world lost a king and a hero today. But he won't be forgotten, not by us, and not by those kids. pic.twitter.com/s27dS2YODC
This man inspired a generation, and we didn't even know he was suffering from cancer during his ascendance to super stardom. Finding out about his struggle with colon cancer today somehow makes Chadwick Boseman even more of an inspiration. Rest in peace, and Vontae Mack No Matter What.

57 years ago today, Martin Luther King Jr. gave the "I Have A Dream" speech
Today is the 57th anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” speech by Martin Luther King. One great sentence: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” pic.twitter.com/FVprkZXSbR— Walt Mossberg (@waltmossberg) August 28, 2020
We can still dream.

These players took the time to make a statement, and I appreciate that.

The ACLU does amazing work, and $100,000 is a nice gesture.
The digital divide in America is hurting kids as they go back to school
Two students sit outside a Taco Bell to use Wi-Fi so they can 'go to school' online.— Kevin de Leόn (@kdeleon) August 28, 2020
This is California, home to Silicon Valley...but where the digital divide is as deep as ever.
Where 40% of all Latinos don't have internet access. This generation deserves better. pic.twitter.com/iJPXvcxsLQ
Mexico is putting classes on TV for students who may not have Internet. We need to make sure every child in America has the same opportunity to be educated. This is at the heart of wealth disparity, and it has to be addressed.
I just got a leak about the leaks. A Facebook spokesperson just wrote this on an internal message board.— Ryan Mac 🙃 (@RMac18) August 28, 2020
Employees who send reporters information do so largely because they believe they are not being heard or that change is not possible via internal mechanisms. pic.twitter.com/iQxPD0iQoH
Facebook remains the worst company on Earth. The only way to defeat them is for users to revolt, but they are mindless drones.
