    Maybe it's just me, but I absolutely dont care who is on our currency, nor their skin color.

    I care who, just not what color they are. Well, unless they are green or gray.

    I dont even care who. They could put an anonymous john doe on the currency, and it would make no difference to me, as long as it was legal currency for exchange.

    Before anyone says we only put presidents on our currency, Here are some examples-

    Ben Franklin $100 and a .50 coin
    Alexander Hamilton $10
    Susan B Anthony $1
    Sacagawea $1
    Chief Onepapa: $5 silver certificate
    Daniel Webster: $10 United States note
    Lews & Clark: $10 United States Note
    VP Thomas Hendricks: $10 Silver Certificate
    Michael Hillegas, 1st US Treasurer: $10 Gold Certificate
    Former Treasury Secretary Hugh McCulloch: $20 National Bank Note
    Former Comptroller of the currency John J. Knox, $50 National Bank Note
    Thomas Hart Benton, $100 Gold Certificate
    Former Chief Justice John Marshall, $500 Federal Reserve Note
    Various 1st ladies on $10 dollar gold coins
    Booker T. Washinton .50 cent commemorative coin



    I say yes. Their contributions to this country are just as important as the other people we put on our currency.PLus if we can put state symbols, animals and other things on our currency surely we can put black civil rights and other historical figures on our currency.
    As long as you aren't talking about the bigots Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, I certainly agree that actual civil rights leaders should be on currency.

    They're changing the 1 coin! Personally, I has a sad.

    Just to be an instigator even Osama Bin Laden?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    The U.S. Govt has tried several times to get us to accept a dollar coin and we won't, but I think Americans would warn to a coin like the pound. There something oddly satisfying about paying with those, like you're in a whole other time period where you can get practically anything with just a pocket of change.
