    No



    I say yes but for regular circulated coins or paper currency.Because I think it should be something that regular people will use not something that only collectors will have their hands on. I think maybe a dime or twenty dollar bill.
    No. Martin Luther King Jr. might have inspired lots of people but he wasn't near as "great" as many people claim. Much of the hype of MLK imo is just an over romanticised rose colored view. The man was a great speaker but he did not get equal rights by himself.

    IMO the only people that should be on our currancy are the Founders. (yes, that means I oppose some of the presidents that are currently on our currancy) And then only because they DID create this country. Everyone else needs to go away and be memorized in other ways.

    No different than those that like him wanting him to be "remembered on a coin/bill". Not liking him is just as valid a reason as liking him for not wanting/wanting him on a coin/bill.

    Or are you trying to suggest something without straight out saying it?

    I have no preference whether or not Martin Luther King is on any type of currency. At the same time I'm not projecting hatred upon a man for no reason.
