There is one African-American that has appeared on U.S. currency. On the District of Columbia quarter, issued on 2009, sits Duke Ellington at the piano.

Wow still so much racism going on in our world today.  Just think no matter what color you are, STUPID FOLKS comes in all colors.  So sad, we got so many walking around in our days and times, LOVE knows no colors.

Limited thinking yields a limited quality of life. If you have ever traveled to Zimbabwe, you wouldn't have made such a self degrading comment. The only use for racism, is to corrupt. It weighs a lot of NOTHING, yet  it takes up precious mental space and defiles the souls of the racist thinkers. It's similar to junk foods loaded with empty calories, that can lead to obesity linking to all sorts of illnesses. While you are sitting there hating Blacks, do keep in mind that they have moved on with their lives, generation after generations, leaving you in the dust with your cancerous thinking. And oh, by the way, the American economy is improving. Have a nice life.

Probably because whites made this country great and it certainly appears a black is doing his best to now destroy it.

That is the truth John. In four more years this country will look like Zimbabwe.
