Google's Cesar Chavez Easter Doodle

Google's Cesar Chavez doodle

Apparently, Google doesn’t do Jesus.

Still, it’s hard to believe the doodle editors didn’t also have Easter in mind in its March 31st Cesar Chavez birthday commemorative, the way the logo is white, the famous activist is in white, and the fields (Chavez famously identified with grapes, not cotton) are white too. Sure Chavez is Jesus-like — unless you’re reading it as an immigration Easter egg.  To the extent the GOP’s election thumping and subsequent script change effectively resurrected immigration reform, however, Google’s angelic Easter doodle is spot on.
