    Having a person on the $20 that doesn't look affluent would IMO tend to deflate its value, so I am against it. Tubman just doesn't look affluent.

    It has a better chance on paper. You can wash plastic

    I don't think it can colonize paper.

    ****! The Queen is only worth $5 whereas David Unaipon is worth $50!

    Get over it please. Even Australia has women and indigenous people on our notes

    As long as the bill conveys an aura of affluence, fine. I can still get two main meals for under $20 in my area and I don't want that to change because of a picture that signals poverty and oppression.

    Trump is the one that has to make this choice, not Obama

    Andrew Jackson does not look affluent. Therefore your stance here is, illogical, since the $20 bill features him looking like an old depressed unkempt usher at Fenway Park.

    Why is this thread title not consistent with the article?

    Why are you in the wrong thread, posting that?

    The thread title speaks to racism. The article in the OP, is saying Tubman won't be on the $20 bill because Trump is a racist who hates Black pride.

    If that is not, consistent, then there is no such word! :)

    The Tubman $20 re-design was completed in 2016, during the Obama administration. Your head seems unexploded.

    We should eliminate the whole political minefield by not putting anybody on our currency. We should do like Canada and put animals on our bills. Except, instead of stupid ducks, we could do cool animals like bison, eagles and grizzly bears.

    We could throw the leftists a bone by putting a weasel of the $5, so they'd have an animal they could identify with.

    I think Nicola Tesla on our bills would be nice. He actually did something that helped the whole world.

    We all knew that the Harriett Tubman $20 bill would never happen in 2021 with Republicans in power. And we were right. Next year is the 100th anniversary of the women's suffrage movement and I assume that Trump would prefer seeing Ivanka on a $20 bill instead of Harriet Tubman. After-all, Ivanka has done so much for the women's movement, hasn't she? Steve Mnuchin is pandering to his racist boss.

    I'm unfamiliar with the Ivanka $20 dollar bill proposal, but the current incarnation of the Tubman $20 is ugly and won't be popular. I take it you love it however, although I suspect you're in the minority on this.

    Is plastic money eco-friendly?

    I like having DWM's on the currency; it annoys the left.

    That's shows how shallow and superficial the right is.

    So in order to be woke, we need ugly currency?

    Why do we need a face on currency? Just put the value and problem solved.

    Does your conscious mind have any rare thoughts at all that deal with historical fact and moments in US history that are pertinent to our society today, or is it totally committed to seeing and thinking only superficial, shallow thoughts?
