Harriet Tubman is the New Face of the $20 Bill


Abolitionist Harriet Tubman to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill...

From NPR
Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew is expected to announce that he has decided to put abolitionist leader Harriet Tubman on a new $20 bill, a Treasury official tells NPR's Scott Horsley.
The decision caps a public campaign asking for the change and months of deliberation by the Treasury to either replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill or Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.

I like the idea of Harriette Tubman being on the $20 bill, I just find it ironic that Andrew Jackson was on the $20 considering he was fighting tooth and nail against the predatory banking system we have today:

I respect all Ms. Tubman did for people of color and the Country, but knowing the turnaround and the general shenanigans the Treasury Secretary has been trying to address re: counterfeit currency, I'm excited, but wary.

I don't want something to happen and people to "blame" the presence of Ms. Tubman's face on the bill (i.e. counterfeiting to skyrocket and they blame the new 20's.)

I'm cautiously optimistic, but keep a close eye on what the REAL news is (the financial news) via Bloomberg, RT, and France24.

Preach on it, 2pm! And 2:03 is dead right; Read between the lines when there are these seemingly "wonderful" advances. Let's not forget they're pushing the Country toward a cashless society. I really hope they're not going to put Harriet Tubman's face on the 20, then eliminate all cash anyway:

I hope they don't try to white-wash her ass with filters and angles...

And that hair better be wrapped up and they ought to have her shotgun in frame as well

Okay 2:10! The woman was a revolutionary and the shotgun better be in the frame. She better look like the proud woman she was on that bill!

2:10p and 2:19p I agree but they need to Photoshop a smile on her face otherwise...yikes!

What's the Irony?

That Pic is BAD
But acknowledgment is well Deserved
Pretty sure they can find a better pic

That picture was taken during slavery, this woman went thru pure hell to save others. That being said, Harriet Tubman looks damn good to me. Well deserved acknowledgement.

Thank you 3:15pm; People seem so damn brainwashed and underexposed sometimes. The horrors of slavery and the things she saw (lynchings, rapes, pregnant women sliced open and their babies stomped) and the constant fear and stress she was under are written on her face in her photos. She looks proud and dignified in her photos. Unbowed. Black people owe this woman a debt of gratitude. And those saying the currency should reflect a "smiling" picture are more undereducated on history than I thought and need to have a damn seat!

I'm officially scared for the future. I bet if they repackaged slavery as "no more bills" some dummies would be like "Sign me up!"

These are the type of news articles that should be on this blog, that people that know a little something about everything can comment. Leave all the wrong doings to social media to handle. This was a refreshing read keep the comments coming.

Well this is 2016 and we're no longer in slavery times she need to be smiling. We done overcame. To all of y'all being so deep on here you probably need to smile too.

Not only are they pushing for a cashless society, they have also picked or chosen a time when the value of the American dollar is becoming worthless. All of this in order to usher in the NWO. They aren't as slick and they think they are. Ture, some of us may be ignorant (unaware), sleep or just swimming in denial, but there are others out here who can see what's really going on.

@4:58 pm Do you realize just how ignorant you sound? SMDH

Shit - was anybody happy during slavery - go fuck yourselves? Buncha white folks coming in here wanting to see a happier side of Ms. Tubman - GTFOH!

Anonymous said...

Thank you @5:21 there was no happiness during slavery.

Anonymous said...

Yes there was some happiness. When Sambo went to playing that banjo they kicked up their heels something awful. Dancing and singing by the fire. I can almost see em.

@2:00 I agree. I always found it to be a symbolic "pissing" on Jackson's grave to have his image on the Zionist Federal Reserve note.

Personally I would love to see some prominent African Americans on Gold or Silver coins -- you know, currency that actually has VALUE. But, I'll take what I can get.

And ^5 @2:07, the banking cartel is pushing for a cashless society because, while the Almighty dollar is completely worth less, it is our last stake at possessing purchasing power. Removing physical cash and relying on digits on a computer screen will render all of us 100% dependent on a globalist banking regime. They are pushing it by suggesting the elimination of the $100 bill.

Thank you 3:15 pm. and lets not forget Andrew Jackson was a slave owner, major one at that who also was monumental of removing Indians from their native land.

God people in America are so stupid! She went through suffering for others read her bio, educate yourselves she did a lot, I wanted to cry reading about her. She died poor! She deserves anything she never got in life. She didn't need to smile. SHES AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL! I hope they keep her that way. Strong. How many people would do what she did? Amazing.....;)

This is a damn shame that we are accepting such a disrespectful appeasement. A black woman like Harriet Tubman is the beloved of the white supremacy establishment? GTFOH with that bullshit. The black woman is barely respected amongst her own for the same reason that white supremacy sees her as a threat. They only trotted this out to shut up the protesting that went on after Mike Brown's murder because black folks was getting organized again and not singing kumbaya and messing up the establishment's pockets. They had flashbacks of the possibilities of the Panther era and Garvey movement waking up again.

Harriet Tubman is one of my heroes and this is not the way to honor her. I bet that they won't make a truthful movie with a black woman that looks like her getting gangsta in the freeing of enslaved Africans. They won't go that far with the "honor".

@2:35 PM What a rude, ignorant comment. The woman you see in that photo had a beautiful, loving spirit who risked her life to escape to freedom and go back to free other slaves. Nothing in this photo need to be altered or photo shopped.

Thanks 7:00 I will check it out. I mean why not give it to us they did it for the Jews and every other foreigner that comes here lives tax free for five years, gets help with housing and low interest/interest free loans for starting a business. They still haven’t made up for the atrocities they committed on the Native American Indians but at least they gave them something. But us and what they did to us as a people, crickets. What? We haven’t suffered enough the past 400+ years. I guess being sold, lynched raped, beat, shot down and treated like wild animals does not account for anything SMH….

I have never considered myself a racist but in this day and age I am not so sure anymore because white people are starting to buck in places other than a trump rally. I am trying real hard not to take vengeance from the Lord when it comes to these people and it’s even harder not to hate them for all the things that they have done to me and mine. And Lord forgive me but I would love to get one of them by their selves and scare the shit out of them doing Samuel L Jackson's version of Ezekiel 25:17 just once but I digress.

So yeah, I think putting a Black woman on the face on a twenty dollar bill is too little too late. What is this anyway, their underhanded way of acknowledging slavery? I don’t get how that suppose to help us but sticking a couple of a hundred and TWENTY thousand dollars from the over 40 billion dollars of unclaimed money the government is sitting on in each of our pocket sure would. But they ain’t gone do that tho. Nope, nah, uh uh, that’s too much like right.
