    He saw,
    He made his unique mark,

    He one an Oscar for his people and US,
    In this land whose money says,
    In God we trust!

    With care he graced characters,
    That were great and sunny,
    Serious and hilarious with universal themes,
    Abundantly funny!

    He didn’t mind taking a wise stand,
    For that which was right,
    Consistently glowing ever upward,
    With all his might!

    We thank the heavens and our ancestors,
    For this mensch of a man,
    Sir Sidney Poitier who is,
    In our book,
    Awesome and grand!

    Let us the living take Sidney’s,

  16. Thank God for this blessing of a human being so wise. I am sad at his passing. RIP my dear soldier of humanity and brother to us all. Ever lovingly in our hearts and thoughts.

  17. Poitier was GREAT in Shoot To Kill

  18. πŸ‡§πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡§πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡§πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡§πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡§πŸ‡Έ πŸ•Š SIP TO OUR LEGEND.

  19. He had a long life, but it is still sad. Rest in Peace Mr. Poitier. You will always be remembered!!!

  20. Oh, Sidney! What a loss. I’m tired of seeing my icons die. Betty White, Christopher Plummer, Sean Connery, Alex Trebek. Thank God Harry Belafonte still lives!

  21. He was an island man, an actor and a proud Bahamian. Our country mourns our star! πŸ‡§πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡§πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡§πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡§πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡§πŸ‡Έ

  22. Stood for something more than money or fame. But .. he earned both anyway with dignity and honor. Your screen images will forever entertain and warm the hearts of generations to come.

  23. LEGENDARY ACTOR REST IN PEACE SIR

  24. Sidney Poitier was a pioneer and a great actor. Hollywood often wasn't worthy of him. He often had to navigate his earlier roles between a kind of dignity and still show passion. In a time when Black people were expected merely to just entertain others and never show their true feelings, his acting ability wasn't appreciated and he was often just seen as a ' token ' by Hollywood. It was in the 1960s to 1970s when he got to expand his roles and direct films that he truly was able to show how wide his range was. He was a trailblazer who achieved much in spite of that era. Respect to him.

  25. Remember in The Office UK when Ricky Gervais was trying to score points with a new black employee by telling him his favorite actor was Sidney Poitier, Mrs. Sidney Poitier?

  26. Sad to hear of his death,good actorπŸ‘, he came at a time where not many African-Americans were major stars/actors and yet he became one,his roles were dignified and made you see him as "a man". One of my favorite actors of all time. Will be missed.

  27. Champion, champion, we all thank you Sidney, RIPπŸ™

  28. If you are a truly gifted person people recognize it and reward it. Regardless of anything else.

  29. πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ ❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️

  30. "He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama…" there I fixed it for you, try not to be so disrespectful ABC News!

  31. 94 is a great life. He didn't win the Oscar for being black (like some more recent ones) he won because he was the best. Sidney Poitier was an American treasure. Rest in peace, sir.

  32. You lost me at "diverse."

  33. This great man touched my life in Australia,will honour him by watching his films including a patch of blue,my favourite,farewell my friend.

  34. 2 1/2 years from being 50 not 21/2 we all make mistakes sometimes on the internet when writing at times. My bad. πŸ’―πŸ™πŸΏ

  35. I miss him…. He was a great actor. I do have a favorite movie…. It was Sidney Poitier and Richard Widmark in "The Long Ships"….oh, and Lilies of the Field

  36. The "Jackie Robinson" of Hollywood. Technically, he didn't break the color barrier but he was singularly responsible for changing the image of black actors and blazing the path of opportunity that made it possible for them to get major roles. And thanks to his adamant insistence on roles that displayed self respect he destroyed Hollywood's stereotypical image of black Americans and replaced it with a new standard based on equality. He was incredibly handsome and naturally charismatic. He possessed a great intellect and he was a superb screen actor. Thankfully we have the films. And so long as humans watch movies he will remain one of Hollywood's greatest icons.

  37. I bought his autobiography The Measure of a Man. A great example of how to live Great book ITS a very inspiring read RIP.

  38. S.P. You taught grace with honor. Thank you for being in my generation. Rip bro. God Honor you in his grace..😍πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

  39. My God. I remember you Sidney P. I was in diapers. Sucking my Trump. A Toddler. I remember you. To Sir with love. I enjoyed this film. I was that rooted teen. You blessed me with sit down. Learn. Yep. His quiet was kin. He had that eye fight. My mom had that eye fight. I have that eye fight. It’s called trained to meet the needs of hunger for super star quietly. Rip air of breath. S.P rocked.. πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

  40. Man it's hard growing up and seeing all your favorite people pass away. God forbid Mr. James Earl Jones – – – no no ! Say it ain't so…. not for a long long time. Reach 100+ first. rest in peace Sir Sidney! Ugh this hurts a lot. What a gentle, kind, powerful, trailblazer. Personally, hurts a lot more than Betty White and it's not fair to compare at all. She served the world plentifully too. May she rest in peace as well ='(

  41. Rest in peace my dear brother

  42. WHAT'S HIS NAME!!!!!!
    Noble Man of Peace and Hope
    A legacy of Wisdom and Intergrity
    A LEGEND that cannot be duplicated
    KING of the ages
    PHENOMENAL Leader
    Gentleman
    and the list shall increase from generation to generation.
    THANK YOU Mr. SIDNEY POITIER
    Rest in the GRACE and PEACE of Heaven from Everlasting to Everlasting.
