Am I the only one extremely pissed off about this absolutely disrespectful bullshit? Andrew Jackson suffered for this country. He fought and won time and time again. He led men into battle for this country, he fought battles against the odds and fucking won. He dueled not only for his own honor, but for the honor of his wife as well. He was willing to get shot and possible die because someone called his wife a bitch. He fought bank corruption and ushered in an entire era fucking named after him. An extraordinary era of unprecedented economic growth and revolutions in transportation.
And then you have this bitch.
She helped some slaves escape and also spied for the Union. She was also what could be defined as a radical feminist in a way, at least this was in a good way compared to now.
And somehow, someone in Washington decided that she should be on the front of LEGAL TENDER instead of Andrew Jackson.
What the actual fuck is this bullshit?
I do agree, her achievements are nowhere near on par with those who currently find themselves on our money. To replace one of our great presidents with some random person who helped runaway slaves is such a spit in the face of american history. Thousands of people helped runaway slaves, logically speaking her achievements are not that grand. It annoys me how this forced diversity bullshit pervades every facet of modern society.
She deserves some kind of recognition. She did show bravery that matched the kind that soldiers have. She did the right thing over and over again without caring that she could be killed for doing so. Jackson was a war hero and great with economics, but have other presidents that are both of those things who also didn't own slaves and slaughter thousands of indigenous people.
Honestly who cares, don't pretend like anyone of us actually gave a shit that andrew jackson's face was on the $20 before this. You're just upset because you don't like change, and honestly you just gotta stop caring about shit that doesn't matter /b/ro.
You got the right idea op. Fuck this stupid shit skin nigger ape thing and whatever accomplishments she might have. Andrew Jackson had done so much for this country and its terrible we have to have some ape staring back at us now. I mean of all the fuckikg people in world to pick and they picked fucking Tubman. Probably a women's idea. This is why women can't be trusted
She didn't just "free some slaves". She continually went back to the deep south and put her week being and freedom on the line to free more and more people from real oppression. I agree that this regressive left needs to shut up and learn the universe doesn't revolve around them, but I'm ingenious enough to recognize a good point when I see one. Tubman is more deserving the Jackson.
at least rosa parks isn't nearly as ugly. she doesn't have a giant babboon nose.
can't they pick people who are at least unoffensive to go on currency? we have to look at it everyday after all
Take everyone off your money and start putting landmarks.
I.e. The constitution, Washington Monument, Lincoln Monument, 'Old Faithful', Ect.
>this many liberals and emotional faggots on /b/ that actually support this
No wonder this board is a fucking dump nowadays.
>Everyday beta faggots on /b/ get BTFO
you guys are getting pathetic
is that all? they were going to genocide the white settler's, so it was just a matter of who struck first. white people won. the end.
literally nothing to be ashamed of. its just the same story history repeats over and over
In a period where it was typical to slaughter Native Americans.
Jackson lived during the Fort Mims massacre, were Natives enter settlements and systematically slaughtered tons of people. They famously slung babies against walls to kill them. Natives at that period were looked at by many people how we look at ISIS. How the fuck do you think he got popular and became President?
Slaughtering Natives, durr.
Except literally all she did was 'free some slaves'. You can grandize it all you want, but that's all she did. She went in, freed a handful of slaves, went back, freed a handful of slaves, etc etc etc. Plenty of other people risked their lives to save slaves too.Even Tubman didn't single-handedly free a single slave, every single slave saved by Tubman was ALSO saved by all the people helping Tubman.
In the grand scheme of things, Tubman's accomplishments are fairly irrelevant and meant virtually nothing to the country. The only reason we even glamourize them is because she's black, and a woman. You don't hear about the white men that risked life and limb to save black slaves after all. It's the same thing with Rosa parks, her actions meant literally NOTHING in the flow of history. Yet for some retarded reason we put her on the same level as people who actually changed History, like MLK.
I'm sorry, but saving a few slaves does not put her even close to Jackson, let alone more deserving than him.
It's the first step towards getting rid of cash... Make no one want to use it.
Bro, "this is a total slap in the face to great people who achieved amazing feats, Dr. MLK, Rosa Parks, so many social justice warriors of our time. How can we sit by and watch as they put a memorial, not even a real picture, of a man who owned slaves. I'm so triggered"
Fuck Tubman sure she saved slaves but she also recruited and helped John Brown with his raids in which brown killed every white person he could find and would burn the towns thank God we caught him and hung his innocent murdering ass
As a native american myself I'll just call you an idiot. As others have explained to you, you're looking at history through a modern lens. You're putting modern values and morals on people who lived in a completely different world. Jackson was part of slaughtering indians, but what, you think my ancestors were innocent little victims? Indians of the time were MORE savage than the americans and slaughtered people in exceptionally brutal ways, killing women and children along the way. EVERYONE was brutal as fuck back then, to single out Jackson simply betrays your ignorance of history. It's not a war crime if literally every single person on the planet is doing it.
The whole of the nation east of the Mississippi has benefited massively from that huge national embarrassment. The land, the money, the security of nearly all non-USA "nations" exiled to the west. It is shit sure, a raw deal for those it happened to and the ancestors stuck on reservations.
BUT YOU SHOULD OWN YOUR HISTORY.
You can cry how mean it was but you are still benefiting from it. Dick move, it still helped strengthen a nation that needed strengthening. We only managed to beat the Empire twice out of their own boredom and apathy. Andrew Jackson is still an important figure in US history. Both a negative and positive creature to be learned from.
A great example of current events as well. He was popular with the people, spoke bluntly. The establishment hated him and denied him the Presidency once before.
Found the triggered cuckservative. Are you upset delicate little flower? Maybe you should go back to your safe space and repeat nigger nigger kike kike sjw sjw over and over and over again
While some attempts at germ warfare were true. Most of it was just accident. And from Indian to Indian after initial contact. Colonists and then the new natives weren't lobbing plague victims or smallpox blankets into villages.
Bacteria and viruses just found new vectors they could use in the Americas and moved faster.
Treaty after treaty was broken to push them back even further. When they understandably refused to move, they died. Preemptive strike, my ass. Even if Native Americans acted first, which they didn't, it didn't explain things like Wounded Knee where defenseless women and children were chased and massacred by US soldiers for no reason. Those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it.
Nah, he's more popular overseas than he is here. We all think he was a bit of an idiot tbqh. They did talk about him a lot on the TV, but they were blatantly pushing him onto us, and we ignored it.
What are you even on about? I never took a stance. You're the one espousing your stance loud & proud. I was just pointing out that faggots like you mucked this board up beyond repair.
Just examples, my /B/ro-Active friend.
How about, no faces at all. Just 'Merica...
Here's my thing, it isn't an issue as long as you aren't racist. There wouldn't be a problem if she wasn't black. And honestly, she's just a better person than Andrew Jackson. The president who I will admit is brave and willing to fight for his country. But, he also committed genocide. But seeing as this is 4chan I imagine most of you don't care about that because you're edgy as fuck.
>thinks he's cool for going on the internet and liking nazi shit.
>hates jews for no reason seeing as he's probably from a small down that isn't in the North East
>Hates black people because the internet told him to.
>Racism is edgy and feminism is stupid, #fuktumblr
Honestly, these fucks are the worst in our society.
>Andrew Jackson worked as a courier at the age of 13
>his brother died of heat exhaustion
>him and his other brother were captured by the british and forced to work (basically slaves)
>he once refused to clean an officer's boots and was slashed multiple times with a sword giving him multiple scars
>pretty much his entire family died before he was 16
>served in the army and fought in numerous battles, including the battle of New Orleans, where he was outnumbered but still managed to hold the city against both the british and the citizens inside who wanted to surrender to the british
>became president by a landslide
>was shot many times during a duel defending his honor and the honor of his wife
>basically went through hell to ensure the well being of this country
>black bitch freed like 70 slaves with the help of the underground railroad and also spied for the union, then joined the woman's suffrage movement, basically did nothing after that
I am patiently awaiting the day for the next civil war to occur within the states. With all of this pushing and shoving over individual agendas, I am surprised it has not happened yet. Go ahead. Keep arguing. When they finally decide to break our boundaries, you may realize they were just toying with you all along.
>This matter is trivial and insignificant.
Actually he was. He essentially made secession illegal, and prevented the initial efforts at secession without bloodshed because he was so revered. Jackson laid all of the framework for the Union; if not for him, the Union would not have had the support that it did during Lincoln's Presidency, and our continent would likely be divided.
But keep telling yourself that Tubman did more for African-Americans.
I'm actually a guy who likes women. Unlike most of the idiots on 4chan. I use to come on this website when I was younger and I'm bored as fuck at work and thought I'd come back on and laugh. Instead I have to read shit that reminds me why I moved the fuck out of the south. Fuck all you pseudo-conservative idiots.
>Mfw when the shills are winning the disinformation battle and rubbing their hands feverishly at you all arguing about race and history.
>Not realizing this is all most likely an elaborate ruse for the fed to print more money on the DL...
Honestly Jackson shouldn't have ever been on a bill. I also don't thing that people should be on money twice (Washington is on the quarted, $1 bill, etc).
We should have:
And other historically important American people. Not just political figures, but those who impacted science and the arts as well
American money will be a joke which is a better reason to buy silver and gold.
If you wanna play the race card why not put a black person that actually shaped history? Y'know, like martin luther king? I doubt very many people would complain if MLK was the one put on the 20$ bill.
It isn't because she's black, it's because she never fucking did even a fraction of the good Jackson did. It's that she simply isn't deserving. Make her white, make her a male, people would STILL be bitching about it because her ACTIONS do not justify replacing Jackson.
Shocking, I know. Not looking at the color of someone's skin but their character and deeds? It's an alien concept for you regressives, but you should try it some time.
Yeah, those legalities definitely did there job in stopping secession. Thank fuck Lincoln had the paperwork, strong statements and "Less-Then-Adams" legislation to throw at the Confederates.
It definitely brought them to heel...
>Americans complain about pictures on there banknotes
>Americans complain about absolutely everything
I so dosnt matter, my country has redesigned our bank notes like 3 times in the last 20 years, it dosnt matter.
>spied for the Union
Isn't that a good thing? Wherent the confederates traitors? What's wrong with being against traitors?
Two bachelor's a minor
Working on phd at Yale as we speak.
Anything else you'd like to insinuate from your PC dungeon from your parents house?
The statement, that all people who fight in wars are war criminals, is a valid statement. It may not be logically sound, we'd have to you use a truth table for that, but it's valid.
Yeah, I'm Native American too. Also white, black, Mexican, and chink. See how easy it is to say that? Also, OP here. Jackson lived in a shitty time, sure. But to excuse genocide is fucking stupid. He was a horrible person with a good economic record. Why should we commemorate him?
Who gives a fuck about any of this? Andrew Jackson marked the beginning of the end for American politics. Look who were the presidents before him, all learned men. Then you have Jackson, a fucking normal guy. Fuck the Jacksonians: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacksonian_democracy
Now this doesn't mean Harriet Tubman should be on the $20, she definitely doesn't deserve it. But neither does Jackson, and that's not even considering the genocide he ran.
Hariette Tubwoman wuz a straight up hoe, yo. Rosa Parks was a mixed qt 3.14. Rosa Parks should've been on my monies tbh fam.
I did happen faggot. What the fuck do they teach you cucks in the south? Interracial marriage is wrong? Slavery was not the main cause of the civil war? Your mom is your only sexual safe space? By the nine!
the confederates weren't "traitors". they simply wanted the federal gov to fuck off as it should and let individual states govern themselves, as they should. The civil war was the war of northern aggression. also as a side note fuck niggers.
Yeah because Harriet Tubman didn't do anything. Okay, first of all I'm not going to dignify that stupid answer with a response. Andrew Jackson did do a lot, but he also cause the indian removal act. Which killed 4000 people. The choice to do so managed to basically wipe out most native americans. Who, by the way always get the shit end of the stick. So, it's just a morals thing. Most presidents haven't been as fucked as Jackson. As far as I know he's the only one who thought genocide was American. Fuck off.
I know it was accidental. My point was that the Europeans had the explicite mission from Columbus to enslave the Native Americans and slaughter those who fight back. They died from human hands before diseases were relevant.
Canada has landmarks on our curencyvand people
We also have re designed the banknotes multiple times in the last 20 years with no complaining.
Americans are just inflexible babies that cry about everything up to and including ink on banknotes.
Your argument is horrible, and should be posted on the wall of shame with the other shitty arguments people like you have made over the years 4chan has existed.
Jackson's legislation did its job at building what Union backing there was. Jackson fundamentally created and enforced the very principle that secession was illegal; before his ideals, it was universally accepted that any state had the right to secede at any time. Again, he was capable of stopping secession without bloodshed.
Once again; without Jackson, we would have a split continent today. Lincoln could never have rallied on the essential nature of an undivided union as Jackson did, because Jackson literally created and enforced the principle.
oh stop your fucking bitching bitch. Jackson was cool. Tubman is cool. They both helped turn America into the kickass country it is now. Jackson did have blemishes on his record though. like owning people and genocide. plus a ton of women helped america thru our history. I fuck with harriet tubman she was cool, put her on the fucking twenty who gives a fuck.
People like you really hold the country back. and im a gun loving liberal hating life long conservative.
Andrew Jackson spent his entire presidency fighting against the creation of a central bank. The Federal Reserve only put his face on there as an inside joke, since so many of you are completely fucking ignorant.
>implying the rest of the world shares there baby mentality twords drawings on money.
No one cares but you crybabbies, it's just a fucking picture on your bank notes it so dosnt matter at all, other countries can change there money and no one complains, why is the US full of such babies that cry about everything?
>implying any of that is a good thing
>implying there isn't about to be civil war 2
>implying freeing the niggers wasn't the biggest mistake in US history next to giving women rights.
Thank you! You're not an American, and as an American who doesn't live in America anymore, this is why. My country is stupid and stuck in the past. There are some good parts, but honestly moving to Europe was the best decision I have ever made. Get this...
>I can go to the doctor for free
>I get paid time off
>I get paid well
>I have rent control
>I pay 45% in taxes but everything is covered.
What did Tubman do besides save a few slaves? Also you're willfully ignoring all the people the Indians slaughtered. As per usual revisionist history painting one side as pure evil and the other as angelic saints. Indians were not the good guys, and Jackson was not the bad guy. It's war, and in war you fucking kill your enemy. You can't even begin to understand that because you're some privileged upper-middle class white kid living in a first world nation.
>someone in Washington
You mean the fed.... which is not part of the US government.
It's all just meaningless paper, learn about what money is, and you will be way more pissed about how we are all getting absolutely fucked in the ass; the least of your worries should be what pretty pictures that they paint on that junk.
Here's a graph that shows you why Jackson was able to win: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voting_rights_in_the_United_States#/media/File:U.S._Vote_for_President_as_Population_Share.jpg
All those retarded fuckers who Jackson appealed to in the same way that Trump is appealing to people now are the reason why Jackson won. Politicians are all idiots now and it started with Jackson. Obama actually is decently smart but as a political scientist and lawyer he is ultimately a grunt who works within the system instead of thinking outside of it, like an intellectual would.
I'm not saying an undivided Union was a good thing. I tend to side with Calhoun in the Calhoun - Jackson discussion, but Jackson is the entire reason the Union was capable of coming together & winning the Civil War. He did 150% more for African-Americans than Tubman.
>Gosh I'm just so buttfrustrated that the world is changing around me. I wanted the US to only recognize white people forever!
Soon we will trade in metals once again, after fiat shits itself.
Okay, so by this statement Hitler did what he had to do because war? You're just mad because a black women is on money. And, you're probably a richish white kid who's family hates minorities because they are becoming more equal as opposed to thirty years ago.
>liberals aren't full of butthurt & outrage
i don't really care who is on the bill as long as its an old white guy
fuck me bro i don't want to be looking at some old nigger slave every time i purchase drugs. making me feel bad and shit
>i freed the slaves for this?
I'm Canadien, same deal as you.
I just don't see why Muricans cry about every small thing in their country?
Hell my country hot rid of the penny last year, just stopped makeing them and melted them down.
If they did that in the US imagin how hard they would cry over it.
I don't really care. This website is full of experts. We are all so incredibly smart.
Just like the guy up there claiming he has two bachelors, blah, blah, blah, and has more than one typing error in his post. Fuck off. You're just as stupid as the rest of us who come here.
Giving a fuck about what face is on this empty currency. Not focusing on actual issues. Sheeple
If it was universally accepted, I guess the President missed that memo since he felt the need to write or say anything at all. He succeeded, at the most, in pacifying secession as it obviously came through in the end.
I again feel that the second part is a little too reliant on the idea that it was so well known and ONLY Jackson was out of the loop on secession.
SHE didn't liberate even a hundred slaves, let alone thousands you fucking uneducated mongrel. She, along with countless others, liberated thousands of slaves but there is absolutely no reason why she should get credit for it. That's like saying some random ass sergeant should get credit for routing the Iraqi army simply because he led a squad that killed some iraqi soldiers. Fuck off. Tubman didn't do a fucking thing for America and her actions are entirely irrelevant to american history.
What? I'm just baffled why Americans are such babies over nom issues, every little change to there country is met with crying.
They could change a window on the white house or mow a lawn and you things would cry about it.
Yeah, it's awful. Thank God I moved before this current campaign season. I couldn't deal with Trump supporters. I love it here(France) I can literally just hangout and have nice conversations with educated people. Even the shitty ones aren't like "wha duh fuk dat nigger doin on da twenty!!!"
I totally agree with you. I mean money itself, especially American money, is disgusting and evil. Literally disgusting, you know what's found on the average American dollar? So much hooker sweat and cocaine its unreal. And then obviously how much blood and hatred and evil shit come from money? All of it! That's right.
So why would I want someone I respect on that piece of paper? Fuck that, it makes sense to keep a racist piece of shit on that money. So I totally agree with you on on this one m9
America is a culture of complaining and thinking you know what's best for everyone else. It's a byproduct of our forced indoctrination and the current education standard that everyone's opinion and feelings matter.
It's really rather unfortunate.
actually that 20$ bill is a good thing every human being with more then 2 braincells is now forced to look at this and think
>why is this black grandma on the bill and why did they put away Andrew Jackson?
>*after some research*
>wait what? she did NOTHING compared to Andrew Jackson
>this SJW bullshit took off too another level
>I won't support this
>TRUMP 2016 confirmed
1: I'm native, not white.
2: I live below the poverty line.
3: I only hate minorities that try to segregate themselves instead of viewing themselves as americans.
4: Comparing Jackson's actions to Hitler's just further demonstrates your own ignorance towards history. Crack open a book for once in your life.
>Am I the only one extremely pissed off about this absolutely disrespectful bullshit?
she changed america by managing a big portion of the underground railroad. she risked her life to make america great. i think thats more than what your bitchass has done
>Trump is on his second term

Now liberals can enjoy spending other peoples money and looking at the picture of a nigger at the same time....while they are buying drugs or paying for gay sex. This whole thing makes me want to puke.
>"our money does say something about us, what we value"
I fucking value the president of the fucking united states. ESPECIALLY A FOUNDING FATHER. Harriet tubman wrote a book ? These fucking femenists are waaaaaaaay out of their league
K Try and pretend that the black factor isn't influencing your opinion. She's a big figure in the black community. Who conservatives should love.
>Tubman is pro-gun
>Self made southern woman who stood up for what she believed in
> MFW conservatives don't like her
No buddy. That's just you talking all uneducated and shit. A lot of people who come here aren't retarded like you and don't speak out of turn with the same level acumen. You know how they say can't teach an old dog new tricks? Well you also can't teach stupid people not to put their two cents in a matter above their pay grade.
You're joking, right? Why do you think they're changing it to begin with? Oh, right, because liberals cried like fucking children because "there's not enough women on the money!"
This entire issue was caused by liberals crying like fucking children over something that didn't matter and didn't need changing.
Honestly, I'm not a big fan of hendrix. But because he had such an impact on music, that is he played a significant role in changing the Evolution of Music, he should be remembered for that.
Niggers gonna nig. Simple as that. They won't be content until they take over everything. The worst part is? You can't complain about this in public or you get labeled a racist. This is a disgrace to our founding fathers.... Andrew Jackson is a founding father after all... it's truly disrespectful... but look at the times we live in now? SJW society.. niggers rule everything.. and being a cuck is the "norm"... This is just further proof of how far our society has fallen.
>select all images that show bananas
sounds like you all have been outmaneuvered, cuck.
Hell, Sacagawea probably did more for the country as a whole, and they stuck her on a coin that no one ever used or wanted. Let's put Harriet Tubman on the $2 bill and call it a day.
Her being black is irrelevant. Her doing literally NOTHING to alter American history is the issue. If you want a black, fine. Pick a black that actually changed America. Put Martin Luther King on that 20 dollar bill. Regardless of his skin color at least he fucking did something to deserve it.
Literally ONLY reason Tubman's on it is because she's black and a woman. It isn't because of what she did, it's because of her genitals and skin color. That's fucking sexist, racist, and regressive as fuck. As a society we should judge people based on their actions, not their skin color or gender. And if we exclusively judge her actions, Tubman is simply not deserving of replacing Jackson. End of story.
I'll flip your little thought experiment around on you. If it was a white man who did literally nothing except free a handful of slaves, would you think he was more deserving than Jackson? We both know the answer to that.
Cuckservatives in a nutshell. How that Medicaid paid for hoverround working out for ya? Take it the tea party rallies on the mall because you don't have a job due to a "bad back"? Or are you still living with mom and dad?
Are you even from the US? Did your grandaddy come over on a boat to ellis island? Take that shit to another 2nd generation foreigner.
Wouldn't you think that being a black women is harder than being a white male? Especially in the 1860's? Women couldn't vote until 1919. So, yeah it is because she is a strong woman. And if you have a problem with that I find you stupid.
You could have fooled me, friend. If what you say is true, then this topic would not be an issue of debate. There would be no need to get ass mad over what face is on fucking recycled trees. But apparently, it's a huge fucking deal. That tells me when shit hits the fan that a lot of you are going to be fucked. Pay grade? Psh. Bitch, step off. If you're arguing in this thread over a $20 bill then you havn't broke $50K.
Actually it's because she's a black woman who nationally represents the movement to risk your life to free slaves. But we can't fit thousands of faces on the bill, so she is the face of that movement.
But tbh I really like Andrew Jackson. And I'd rather MLK on it. But he's got at least a street and a school in every major city. Harriet's good enough.
But most importantly I really don't care too much.
this whole thread makes me cringe. Get rekt cave-dwellers
And so you just admitted that simply because she's a woman, she's more deserving. And THAT is why people like me get upset, because it's just spitting in the face of equality. You regressives will be the absolute death of civilization and you'll be there waving your flag of moral superiority all the way to the bottom.
>this face on my worthless fiat shit makes me mad
>tfw all the whites are claiming she dindu nuffin
Andrew Jackson was in favor of economic decentralization. This is why he is being removed from the twenty dollar bill. This is a carefully calculated action designed to discredit his ideas. We are living in the world that he was trying to prevent.
i wish you could have quoted half this pitiful thread
This mother fucker is on to something! WE NEED TO DO THIS TO EVERY 20 with that nigger bitch on it.
It's not such a meaningless issue that niggers and feminists and libtards don't demand it.
I can see that. But, there were also a lot of musicians before him that revolutionized , even the way Hendrix perceived music, the fore going experience. Such as people like Coleman Hawkins, Buddy Holly, John Coletrane, etc. Plenty of historical musicians that were both black and white to choose from. But hey, to each their own.
>being this bootybothered by who is ON the bill rather than being more concerned with just having the bill in the first place
a $20 bill is a $20, regardless of who is on the front (or the back). I couldn't give a fuck less who they decided to put on it, because I'm more concerned with MAKING money.
Andrew Jackson wasn't a 'founding father.'
Lol you fuckers and your false equivalencies. Sure, Medicaid helps pay for shit because we've spent our lives being robbed to pay for it. Without taxes and reasonable investment, he could afford the tricked-out jazzy.
Stop thinking that forcing people to do shit is good for them. That just makes you a nigger faggot.
Yes... actually he was, moron. Go back to school and learn something.
Given AJ's stance on banking, being put on the 20 was actually a big fuck you to him, so maybe its good they put a nigger on there. But I think this is some of the stupidest pc culture bullshit Ive seen in a while.
>America's Founding Fathers include George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, James Monroe and, of course, Benjamin Franklin. These men, together with several other key players of their time, structured the American democracy and left a legacy that has shaped the world.
Andrew Jackson wasn't even born until 1767. Pretty sure he didn't sign any important 'founding' documents until adulthood. So again, not a 'founding father.'
Actually, he was a founding father in a sense he solidified what it meant to be an American. Moreso than Harriet Tubman did, who literally stole other people's property as a smuggler. I'd rather Abe Lincoln go than Harriet Hussein Tubman.
She was doing it before the civil war, and the civil war wasnt really about freeing the slaves it was mnore about states rights. I dont agree with this either, but its not like she didnt do anything.
Exactly. His memory has been dragged through the dirt, and now they're removing his most prominent memorial. He'll go down in history as a crazed, genocidal racist, all because he tried to destroy the bankers that now rule our lives. What's even worse is that that memorial was only made to fuck with him in the first place.
And you don't think a black abolitionist contributed to American History? Like it or don't, America derives its greatness from its diversity; anyone can come here and make a living. The thing about American Exceptionalism is that you can do things here that you can't anywhere else, and while slavery was considered a 'necessary evil' at the time, its abolition only further strengthened what makes America great. Notice I said 'makes' and not 'made,' because America is still great regardless.
Jackson will still be on the bill, but just on the back. If it bothers you that much, just put all of your $20s into your wallet backwards or upside down, and pay with them face-down.
