By now, you’ve probably heard the great news that Harriet Tubman is a top contender for the newest face to grace the U.S. $20 bill thanks to tireless efforts by the Women On 20s grassroots campaign.

Using the basis that U.S. currency has been largely white and male dominated since it’s existence as a necessity for the change, the group launched an online survey asking participants to vote on which woman they’d like to see replace former president Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. Not only did the online campaign grab the attention of over 600,000 voters, it also saw Ms. Tubman as the winner in the end.

But, where there’s a will, there’s a Raven-Symone.

Known for her colorful commentary as of late, Raven weighed in with her thoughts on Harriet Tubman possibly becoming the newest face of the $20 bill during today’s episode of The View, and she had this to say:

“No offense to everyone that’s going to be mad at me for saying this, I don’t like that idea. I think we need to move a little bit forward. Let me just preference that I understand…trust me I was taught…I am in that culture.”

Can somebody get this child a hobby for the summer…..quickly?

    Her statement was just about as un- American, and self hating as you can get. What kind of crazy American do you have to be to not embrace Harriet Tubman? This woman was a real freedom fighter. Shame on The View, for giving this weirdo a platform.

  • “America Might Want Harriet Tubman On The $20 Bill” “Might” not really, quite playing y’all not in a life time!

    I think if she would back up her statements with something more substantial than “I was taught…in that culture”, we regular folk wouldn’t think she was dumber than a box of rocks. I think Harriet Tubman was a progressive heroine, but to put her on a $20 bill when black people are still suffering has me on the fence. It just seems like something to pacify us blacks, like “this will get them to STFU”. Meanwhile NOBODY has even apologized for the things they have done to our ancestors.
