    Were they of lesser importance to the civil rights movement? This is referring to MLK and others.
    Then you have a number of white civil rights leaders that preceded MLK.

    I don't know who the "others" are to comment upon unless you name them. Civil Rights is not just about Black Rights. Susan B. Anthony has been on the coin, for instance. While I consider Cesar Chavez of huge importance to civil rights albeit more collaterally thank MLK, I would not expect to see him ever put on US currency in my lifetime.

    The long and short of it is that I was just having fun with you. I could care less about who is on our money. I would far rather Old Faithful or the Grand Canyon or the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier be on the One Dollar bill than any person, President or otherwise. Put Putin on it for all that I care if we must have a face on it.

    I was hoping that you would start trying to figure out how to overlay racial demographics onto our current coinage mathematically and then start trying to decide which Presidents must go to make room for other people. The mint I think is all for new coins--the more collectors collect, the less money is in circulation, so they can mint/print even more.

    No, I was not falling into an ethnic ratio. Just a hornets nest.
    As to presidents, except George W. Spin them all thru on a recycle basis.
    We presntly have the same issue on our bill up here. White & male for the most if not all.

    No, but you're having trouble understanding what an insinuation is. That quote had a question, followed by a deduction, followed by a question. No insinuation to be found.

    Silly....

It's not as if the pro-states-right-wing of this country would even consider discussing a supposed commie like Chavez 22 years after his death. Let's focus on the groups of people they've stopped trying to revile.
    Now, let's get back to you...

    You've accuse me of turning one race against the other.

    You said better to go in historical order and put BLACK FOLKS on the currency before we start discussing OTHER PEOPLE.

    Now, as you've tried to weasel your way around this, what does this tell people? C'mon, look at the context clues. Were you speaking of another PERSON i.e. Chavez or were you talking about other PEOPLE, i.e Latinos?

    You then go on to speak of one individual who i used which is grand, however leading up to that isolated individual of whom I used as merely an example of a Latino historical/civil rights figure, we were/are speaking on race and not individuals, remember, I'm supposedly pitting races against each other not individuals but people, are you still with me? I hope so, I'd hate to have to spank you again.

    Now what did you say of these other people? they're "still being attacked and reviled today." Who'd you go back to? Chavez, leading a thinking person to conclude you're saying the other people are Latino's. You think because you gave reason why Chavez would be reviled allows you to escape the context of what was previously said in the context it was said. It don't. But let's continue -- with you're politically charged "pro-states right-wing" antagonists, who are being reviled and attacked? Latinos? No no, they're being pandered to. Illegals? Yes. Most certainly. And are we hearing of the great uprising from prostate right wingers in Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Washington, Wisconsin, Maine, Vermont, Michigan sick to death of all those dirty Canadians? No. California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas. That's where the pro-statesrights right wingers are having a conniption. And what borders those States? Mexico!!!!!! and what does Mexico have? MEXICANS!!!! Of course, but more aptly described? Latinos. Now, are the state rights right wingers reviling and attacking Latinos in Mexico? No. Are they reviling and hating on, attacking Latino's who are American? No, we've already said that these Latinos are being pandered to. So who must they be attacking? Who is reviled? ILLEGALS.

    So, what was a poor little country plowboy like myself to deduce?


    Latino's are reviled? Oh, you're confusing Latino's with Illegals. All Latino's are illegals in your book?
    You thought latino's were reviled? No, that's not true they're being pandered to. You must be confused, you must be talking about the terrible illegal immigration our country faces that only states rights right wingers seem to care about. I then asked, to make sure I wasn't mistaken in catching your mistake by ASKING not insinuating, never insinuating, but ASKING if "All Latino's are illegals in your book?"

    This is the conversation and the context in which it was presented. Not the BS you're trying to pass off now.

    Hat. Hand. Door.

    Good Day.

    You're still trying to justify your ridiculous insinuation? When I discussed people who were reviled, I was addressing Cesar Chavez. You tried to expand it to be something about all hispanics. Now, you could have saved yourself the embarrassment and diatribe with some simple reading comprehension. However, you didn't and now I have to destroy you with some right wing views on Cesar Chavez that would make placing him on any currency an issue of debate. That you doubled down on your ridiculousness really says volumes about how you've tried to muddy this issue by throwing out people you know the right wing doesn't like. Hell, here are some of the "nicer" things they've said about Cesar Chavez:

    For real:

    Christians from all walks of life and political views expressed shock, dismay, and exasperation with Google’s diss:
    Sean Hannity Spreads Dangerous Misinformation about California Water | California Progress Report

    In April, the same organization sponsoring Hannity’s visit held a "March for Water" that Arturo Rodriguez, president of the United Farm Workers Union founded by Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, denounced for not representing the interests of farmworkers, but only the growers. The New York Times on April 17 reported that "many of the protesters were paid by their employers to march in lieu of harvesting crops.”

    Glenn Beck shows once again that any clown can have a microphone in this country.

    He certainly is exercising his right to say what he wants, as we shall exercise our right in denouncing his harmful and dangerous vitriol. – Axel Caballero
    Glenn Beck wants a street named after Rush Limbaugh - Salon.com

    Beck, who was broadcasting from Utah, wondered “what Cesar Chavez Boulevard has to do with Salt Lake City,” continuing that he “is not going to take it sitting down,” and urging listeners to fight back against the existence of streets named after the labor and civil rights leader.
    In short, what do we gather from this? For the right wing, Cesar Chavez is a left wing idol. Not somebody they'd simply allow on currency without their usual smears of socialism and other nonsense. Hell, they complain when his name is put on a city street. Now, I'm sure you knew this because your intention was clear. Throw out names of other minorities (including the ones hated by the right) and continue to muddy the issue so that minorities never get on the currency. You fooled nobody. As for the rest of your post: tl/dr.
