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.
