|Harriet Tubman $20 banknote|
The US Treasury Department announced that Harriet Tubman, a gun-toting African-American Republican woman (who found it necessary to arm herself to remain free) would replace President Andrew Jackson on the front/face of the $20.00 banknote.
As I understand it, President Jackson, will be moved to the reverse of the banknote. President Jackson was the last US President to balance the national debt and bring it to zero. Make of that what you will.
|Walking Liberty half dollar – a woman, potentially white|
|Sacagawea dollar coin|
There were standing and walking Liberty coins, a coin dedicated to an Indian woman who carried her papoose on her back to the Pacific Ocean. The vulture on the back of the coin allegedly followed her on her journey, hoping that she’d trip and fall…,and Susan B. Anthony, a suffragette.
|Susan B. Anthony dollar coin|
Margaret Sanger was in the running to have her face on US Currency but her position in favor of sterilizing African American women turned off some in the present administration. Still, she was the first woman to make a solid case for birth control by abortion (for selected people), a popular cause for secular progressives now in control of the executive branch of government in the US. In any event, she didn’t make the cut. If she was alive today, she wouldn’t be the least bit happy that she was beat out by an old negro slave.
I think that his face should appear on all ObamaPhones as well, but that’s just me.
