Couple of questions: You think white supremacists will go out of their way to avoid having to handle a $20 bill with Harriet Tubman’s face on it? As in, they would rather carry around 20 singles, 4 fives, or 2 tens? If so, why? The money will still spend the exact same way…even if it is a Black face on the note staring back at them the entire time to remind them that shit’s changed.
Meh…I doubt they will avoid a $20 bill because after all, even white supremacists have bills to pay too.
Well as far as I’m concerned, replacing Andrew Jackson is long overdue. Replacing this slave owner who was also responsible for the Trail of Tears that forced the removal of the Cherokee Nation to the west of the Mississippi which also caused countless Native Americans to suffer from disease & starvation…this disgrace of an American “legend” should have been removed years ago. As a matter of fact, they need to replace George Washington & Thomas Jefferson while they are at it. But I can accept this first step for right now I suppose.
For all of the members of the White Tears Committee…keep crying. We see you in the comments on social media & on every website running this story. It is what it is I suppose. Jordan feels your pain tho.
For the rest of us…we sort of feel like the homie below…
“Listen. Man. Listen. When I tell you I can’t motherfucking wait to post a bank roll full of Harriet Tubmans. I can’t motherfucking wait to do that negro celebrity money phone picture with a stack of Harriet Tubmans.” — Jean DeGrate
Looks like we jumped the gun on this “celebration”. According to USA Today, Andrew Jackson WILL NOT be removed from the $20 bill.
To make room for Tubman on the front of the $20 bill, Jackson will be moved to the back where he’ll be incorporated into the existing image of the White House. Lew said that image could depict the statue of Jackson riding horseback in Lafayette Square across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House.
