    Should Obama get this same treatment, for not putting her on the 20? Should Dr. King go on the $20, before Harriet? Helping slaves escape racism is indeed, paramount, but getting racism's laws changed is colossal.

    The real problem is that the proposed bill looks like this:

    When it should look like this:

    Obviously the Treasury design is ugly. Nobody wants ugly currency, so use the cool attractive version.

    She doesn't deserve to be on there and some things are better left alone. PC must die.

    Let's start with how we have to walk on egg shells when speaking of Jesus and Ronald Reagan.

    We had Sacagawea on the $1 coin in 2000. We had Susan B. Anthony on the dollar coin in the late 70s. Maybe we can try having Harriet Tubman on the dollar coin.

    My point is that conservatives hate political correctness while availing themselves in it the moment someone criticizes something they cherish.

    You can remove your foot from your mouth before or after I reply.

    Reagan screwed up with the free hospital visits and bigly screwed up with amnesty. Worst thing anyone could ever do...amnesty for leeches.

    I'm not religious....so NEXT.

    Possibly true, but there is plenty of hypocrisy to go around no matter which side of the partisan divide a person comes down on.

    For what it is worth, i am no conservative and i also think that proposed new bill is ugly. Also, most people will never make an effort to learn about tubman, regardless. I personally think they should have either selected martin luther king, or Abigail Adams

    A moronic rant with no facts included. Typical CNN "reporting".

    As shown in 2016, the $10 bill was next to be replaced and that's the schedule that appears to be staying in place.

    We need to do away with paper money altogether and move to plastic currency.
    More durable and costs less to manufacture over its lifetime.

    Can anyone imagine how many racists heads would have literally exploded if Barack Obama, the first Black President, even hinted at putting Harriett Tubman's image on any piece of US currency, even the penny? LOL! :roflol:

    Umm. It was approved under Obama and no one cared. Except for the other violent leftists making threats over putting her on the $10.

    That isn’t true (that no one cared), I remember the thread where it was discussed and many on the right were upset at the ‘political correctness’ of it. Even dear orange leader spoke out against it.

    I guess I missed that thread. Or you are just making it up.

    Bingo!


    I think the world calls it 'exercising our White Privilege' the last time I checked.

    Whilst I agree that the design is passing awful I do think there are better pictures

    Isn’t she the cutest little old lady? You just know she would be giving the nursing home staff ****:p
    But this is a much better picture

    upload_2019-6-16_11-18-35.jpeg
    Purportedly also of her. It would not show the elder respect so missing from today’s society but it is a prettier picture

    The social justice left is NOT "the world" and doesn't even exist in most parts of the world. Go to Japan, for instance, and they even have a derogatory term for people who say things like "white privilege". They sure don't say it themselves.

    At least plastic in this form would be less likely to wind up in the ocean or landfill.

    I’ve always wanted to visit but am terrified of being on an island where everything is trying — and fully capable — of killing me.

    We need to import several of y’all policies.

    It existed, it may have been on debatepolitics but I’m pretty sure it was here.
