    But it isn't, so I won't.
    It really is, considering you built a gigantic strawman regarding what I think of latinos. I addressed the example you gave. Cesar Chavez, a figure reviled by the right wing.

    Yes, your whole presumptuous position is just that. Nonsense.
    Says the guy trying to pit one race against another when it comes to who should be on the currency. Remember, you're the one who has an objection to blacks being currency because other groups aren't being considered in the same breath.

    I'm down. Andrew Jackson and Alexander Hamilton both, I think, could stand to be replaced.

    the only strawman built has been by your hands, you've added wicker here in this post...

    The point I made is plain for all to see, if you can't understand it my repeating it won't help you. You've got to put in the effort.

    Good Day.

    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.
    I asked this of the wrong member. Over to you.

    You should put them on currency in proportion to their races' share of the population. Since we have a limited variety of currency, I suggest we first look for two-fers or three-fers.

    It's not because John McCain doesn't care. It's because John McCain doesn't get it.

You specifically used the Cesar Chavez example, when I addressed right wing views on him, you tried to turn my statement into a dislike for hispanics. It doesn't get sillier than that.

    Ashamed to say I've never thought about it... can't even recite from memory who's on our currency... but absolutely, I'd be all for it.
