All up and down my reader is some shit about how Chadwick Boseman has now made it to “Wakanda!” What the fuck???!!! Wakanda ain’t fucking real!! What is wrong with you?
Here is an excerpt from some blog about Boseman and Wakanda:
Losing Chadwick was part of the loss of a fantasy. Rest in Power, Sleep in Peace King T’Challa. Wakanda Forever
And another one from a different blog:
T’Challa is not dead… The Black Panther has only had one stand alone film within which to see his growth. If American Black fans keep expressing the loss of The Black Panther and Chadwick Boseman as one of the same, they risk not ever seeing a black male character showcased in the near future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
And we have another one:
Wakanda Forver! I was one of those fans who saw Black Panther multiple times.
And another one:
Rest In Peace to our King. Rest In Peace to our Black Panther. Wakanda Forever!
And here we go again!
Rest Well King T’challa. We will forever honor your memory. Wakanda Forever!
And if that is not bad enough, dumbass Whoopi Goldberg weighs in.
“Dear People in charge of building NEW experiences Disney Land and World,” Goldberg began her plea Sunday.
“We don’t really need another Frozen land BUT what we could use is Wakonda[sic], please Disneyworld Disneyland PLEASE build in Chadwick Boseman’s name WAKONDA” she wrote.
That dumb heifer couldn’t even get the spelling right. And yet her ass is worth around $60 million and so if she wants a theme park built in honor of a fictional character from a fictional country, WAKONDA, she can build it her damn self. But she is begging the white man to build that shit. Well, she certainly stays true to form since her many partners have included ugly ass white Frank Langella, Ted Danson, Timothy Dalton, Jeffrey Cohen; all white men and so since she knows so many white men since she has dated them, then I am quite sure that all she has to do is place phone calls to each and every one of them(that’s still live and not on life support) and between the lot of them, they could come up with the money for Whoopi’s WAKONDA theme park. For the love of !!!!
First of all, a man acted in movies and then he died; tragically, we are all going to die, some of us at an earlier age than we’d probably like. But to call the man a “king,” and then reference a fake ass, made up, non-existent ‘kingdom’ in Africa and consistently use it to pay your respects to the dead man for his send off is truly ludicrous and shows that too many of you already live in a fantasy world. I get it. Reality is a bitch! It sucks! But that’s what we got. We don’t have any kings, real or fictional. We don’t have a WAKONDA as Whoopie Goldberg calls it, nor do we have a WAKANDA. Get over it! The man was just as mortal as the rest of us.
What you should be focusing on is how did this man die from colon cancer at the age of 43 when we are told that we ought to get our first screening for colon cancer at age 45? But that certainly did not help Chadwick Boseman.
The ACS recommends that people at average risk* of colorectal cancer start regular screening at age 45. This can be done either with a sensitive test that looks for signs of cancer in a person’s stool (a stool-based test), or with an exam that looks at the colon and rectum (a visual exam).
People who are in good health and with a life expectancy of more than 10 years should continue regular colorectal cancer screening through the age of 75.
For people ages 76 through 85, the decision to be screened should be based on a person’s preferences, life expectancy, overall health, and prior screening history.
People over 85 should no longer get colorectal cancer screening.
*For screening, people are considered to be at average risk if they do not have:
A personal history of colorectal cancer or certain types of polyps
A family history of colorectal cancer
A personal history of inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease)
A confirmed or suspected hereditary colorectal cancer syndrome, such as familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) or Lynch syndrome (hereditary non-polyposis colon cancer or HNPCC)
A personal history of getting radiation to the abdomen (belly) or pelvic area to treat a prior cancer
My dad died at the age of 62 from colon cancer and so I had to include that in my family history. BIG fucking mistake. The next thing I know, I am told that I need to get a colonoscopy every 5 years because I am now considered to have a “family history,” thanks to dear, departed dad.
The first one went smoothly. I had slight discomfort. I was awake and it did not last long. Afterwards, I was told that I had diverticulosis, which are small bulging sacks in the colon. I was told that where they come from is uncertain, but it could be due to constipation. Now, I don’t know who has never been constipated. But anyway, I was told that I would be fine and to come back in FIVE(5) years for another colonoscopy. In five years, I was at a different facility when I underwent the second colonoscopy. BIG fucking mistake! The asshole ‘doctor’ that performed that colonoscopy had me screaming in agony throughout the entire procedure. I knew that I was not supposed to be going through that because I had had a colonoscopy before. After the procedure was over, the pain was so severe in my stomach, I vowed that I would NEVER get another colonoscopy. I was told by the ‘doctor’ that he had to remove two small polyps which turned out to be hyperplastic polyps.
Hyperplastic polyps are benign tumors of the small bowel, which in most cases grow slowly and remain asymptomatic. More rarely, the tumors might grow at a more rapid rate or grow larger than normal, causing symptoms such as pain and digestive problems. About 90 percent of all polyps found in the small bowel are hyperplastic. The remaining 10 percent are either adenomas, which are benign tumors that are of glandular origin, or are associated with a syndrome that leads to overgrowth of polyps.
The very next year, I was in the hospital suffering from diverticulitis which is inflammation of the colon where the bulging sac is. I knew exactly what it was and in fact, I told the doctors in the ER before they even examined me that I had diverticulitis. I was sent for a CT scan and yes indeed, that is what I had. I was given two antibiotics; Cipro and Flagyl. One causes kidney damage and the other causes cancer, so yeah, I really wanted to take those. Anyway, the next primary care doctor that I saw when I moved to a different state asked me about my family history and when I told him about my dad and the fact that I had already had TWO colonoscopies, he stated that that does not constitute a “family history” of colon cancer when only one family member has had it. He also told me that I obviously don’t have the ‘trait’ that leads to colon cancer and that furthermore, I should NOT have any more colonoscopies performed. And believe me, I will not.
Because of colonoscopies, I now have to take certain seeds out of my food. I cannot eat nuts. I cannot eat watermelon unless it is seedless. I cannot eat corn. The things that are the most healthy for us, I cannot eat or either, I have to dig the seeds out and make sure that I don’t miss one or back in the hospital, I am going.
So people, I do understand that colon cancer is a big problem, especially here in America where our diets are so ridiculous, it ain’t even funny. But I want you to know that you seriously need to stop with the fast food and the other garbage because believe me, even when you get a colonoscopy, those things, in my opinion, are more trouble than they are worth. That procedure did not help me. It has actually made MY life a living hell. One lady I spoke with about colonoscopies told me that they found so much horrifying shit in her colon, it was unreal, but she said that, even so, she will NEVER undergo another colonoscopy in her life and I don’t much blame her. I have so much trouble with my colon now, I live in fear every single day that I’ve eaten something that is going to get stuck in that sac in my colon that I do believe was caused by the first colonoscopy, for why had I never experienced ANY type of colon problems until the first colonoscopy and then the second one, tore me all to pieces?
In summation, why Chadwick Boseman succumbed to colon cancer before his 45th birthday, I don’t know because even the American Cancer Society advises colon cancer screening starting at age 45. I don’t know Chadwick Boseman’s family history and so I cannot speculate as to when he should have started colon cancer screenings, but what I do know is that if you want to put Chadwick Boseman on a pedestal, put him up there as the face of horrendous medical care in Amerikkka because what we have here for medical care is akin to a torture chamber and American descendants of slavery always seem to come out the worse for it. Most of us don’t even live long enough to collect Social Security Retirement Income because we’ve died thanks to a racist medical system. My dad never saw a penny of Social Security Retirement because he was still working right up until he just could not take the pain anymore and right after that, succumbed. In essence, Black people are paying for whites to sit up on Social Security. Yeah! Dismantle that shit and see how far they get!
Chadwick Boseman does not need a Disney theme park in his honor. If you want to honor Chadwick Boseman, set up a fund to send more ADOS to medical schools in order to provide more American descendants of slavery with medical professionals who are looking after our health because the white medical establishment is hell bent on our annihilation. Those of us who make up the ADOS community never look pass the glitz and glamour to the reality of what we really need; what is really real. We need Black doctors. We need Black medical institutions. We need Black psychiatrists and Black therapists.
There is NO King T’Challa. There is NO Wakanda. There is NO Black Panther. That is ALL based on FICTION. It is a fantasy. It is not reality. The man has not died and gone to Wakanda for if he had, then he would be back with us because he would have been cured with ‘vibranium’. But Wakanda is NOT real. “Long live the king?” NO! The ‘king’ never existed. Chadwick Boseman is dead. He played a character called “The Black Panther.” He was not a superhero. He just played one. Try and get that through your heads. Yes, our lives are shitty and fucked up, but pretending that fantasy is real is not going to help matters. Pretending that Chadwick Boseman was a king and that he is lying in state in Wakanda is not helpful for your mental state. So walk yourselves back to reality and give up the fantasy and take care of your body and your mind because, believe me, our enemies are real and they are right here in Amerikkka and they are REALLY trying to fuck us up! That IS our reality!
