Google Celebrates Cesar Chavez’s 86th Birthday with a “Google Doodle”

cesar1

Today would have been Cesar Chavez’s 86th birthday. Google has chosen to honor the deceased labor leader with one of its famous doodles. In previous years, Google has been criticized for ignoring events of historical significance to Latinos such as Cinco de Mayo. Just two years ago, Google chose to honor Robert Bunsen (of bunsen burner fame) instead of Cesar Chavez. Since Chavez’s birthday falls on Easter Sunday, it’s likely that there will be some criticism for not having an Easter related doodle.

What do you think? Should Chavez receive a doodle instead of something related to Easter? Worth noting, Chavez was religious man and has been noted “as a model for faithful and effective civic engagement” for Catholics.

  1. As a Christian, I would rather they had just left their standard logo if they don’t want to recognize Easter. It’s insulting, but not surprising. Homepage = Bing.


  2. Google not recognizing Easter as usual…


  3. Way to go Google! Honoring Cesar Chaves instead of Easter! LMFAO I can hear the religious zealots crying as I type this. I don’t know why, Chaves was Catholic… I think that “Jesus” would be proud. Happy Birthday Cesar!


  4. disappointed? yes suprised? not at all. Goodbye google, hello Bing!


  5. I dare them to put the Prophet Muhammed’s face in that O next time.


    • Well, since Silicon Valley is full of engineers/high tech folks from around the world, it wouldn’t surprise OR offend me if they do. I am surrounded by Muslim, Sikh, Hindi, etc folks. Since when does a major multinational corporation have to bow to your personal religious beliefs?


  6. I will use Bing or some other search engine from now on!


  7. Such political nonsense on Easter Sunday. Shame on you for this insult.

  9. Since when did people start worshipping Google?

    I am amused at how little folks know about Cesar Chavez & more so, how little they know about the pagan roots of Easter. I sure hope none of you are using eggs & rabbits to celebrate, today;O) Nor evergreen trees, lights, & yule logs come Xmas;O).

  13. [...] Chavez birthdayWashington ExaminerGoogle Doodles Cesar Chavez on Sunday, March 31ChicagoNow (blog)Politic365 -Stabley Timesall 19 news [...]


  14. They didn’t celebrate Chavez last year, the year before, the year before, they probably won’t do it next year when Easter falls on April 20th… they chose to do it THIS year when Easter just so happens to fall on the same day as Chavez’s birthday. And people really think this was to honor Chavez? if it were really about Chavez, why didn’t they have a doodle any other year until today?


  15. Kudos to Google for choosing to celebrate the birthday of a real man instead of a holiday based on a fictional story. Happy Birthday Cesar!!


  16. I, too, am offended that an international corporation does not honor my personally held religious beliefs.

    LOL
