Put a black woman on the $20 bill and soon we will have a black President. This needs to be squashed immediately. Edited by spookyturtle

It won't happen. The 20$ bill thing I mean. Too late on your last request...

Poor Andrew Jackson. He used to be on a lot of currency (Circa 1930s and earlier).

That man did arguably more than any president to expand the power of the president. I wonder if the same conversations happened back then. Probably but likely on a much smaller scale considering the amount of armchair politicians back then. Then again he was a military hero and running against Boston elitist John Quincy Adams so I'm sure conservatives would have been all about him. But he was a democrat (kinda)

It will never happen with Tubman, Maybe some other chick on some type of currency.

They have already had two chicks on $1 coin and those didn't work. Susan B Anthony and that Indian Chick. They had Martha Washigton on the $1 bill many years ago.

If they do put another woman on a currency they need one that is more in line with founding the country or being part of it legacy. Tubman is just too small of a faction to get on any type of currency.
