  1. I will NEVER use this UGLY crap…EVER!!!!
    I will take 2 tens, 4 fives or 20 ones, thank you.

  2. Hey! I have an idea. Lets put a black person on the 20 dollar bill. Ya know…..since blacks are only 13% of the population.

  3. Hey Traitor Barry, not on Trumps watch!!! Eat dog 💩 Parasite. And to all the Leftist snowflakes baby killers, 🖕🖕🖕

  4. Personally, they can leave our existing money alone. If they wish to add a denomination, fine. However, if they change the twenty, I will not use that bill.

  5. Put her on the EBT card! …not $20 bill! What next? Maybe some famous fa99ot on $100 bill to replace Ben Franklin?

  6. I don't know why the government wouldn't want to do this $20 bill. She looks so ugly on the bills that I wouldn't want to keep them in my wallet. I'd end up spending my money more frequently just so I don't have any of her bills in my wallet to look at.

  7. Just make a new dollar bill like a $41 and put her on it, there's no reason to change what ain't broken.

  8. Democrat Andrew Jackson was a lousy president. This woman on the new bill is really one ugly face. But I don't mind. She's better than Jackson.

  9. There is just no need to change the $20 bill. Are we now going to be so politically correct as to put super athlete on the twenty just for diversity sake? Leave the bills the way they are, if you were to take all the faces off of the bills, you still have the same amount of money-no more/no less. I oppose it-makes no sense. Political activists Schwerner, Cheney, and Goodman paid with their lives to advance the cause of freedom and equality in a very troubled America in the 1960s, should we now then change the currency again? If the powers to be were to decide to exclude from consideration because they were black that would be wrong, and by the same token to consider someone solely because they were black, well, that would be wrong, also.
    Demo: Age: 67, black, proud unabashed conservative, lover of all

  10. I think this is a non story. The government has already said the delay is for a security device and the design hasn't even been done yet. The design they are talking about was just a viewing and they are following the exact procedure of finishing the security system first then the actual print design afterwards. This is what most people would call a poorly investigated report.

  11. Anything to make Trump look bad, and racist no doubt. Black unemployment lowest in 50+ years be damned! Closer to election, watch for a study saying Democrats are smarter than Republicans. Happens every cycle.

  12. The $20 bill will look so ugly with Tubman. Instead let's build a statue or a park in her name. As a Canadian I would not buy that bill.

  13. I'm all about putting a black woman on the $20.00, but Jesus…why not Halle Berry or Kerry Washington?!!

  14. Her legacy is rooted in resisting the foundation of American capitalism. Tubman didn’t respect America’s economic system, so making her a symbol of it would be insulting.

    Look it up, its a tall tale anyway

  15. OMG! TRUMP'S A RACIST! TRUMP'S A RACIST! TRUMP'S A RACIST! TRUMP'S A RACIST! TRUMP'S A RACIST! TRUMP'S A RACIST! TRUMP'S A RACIST! If this isn't proof, what is!? Geez people…get a life!

  16. Why should Harriet Tubman be on something that represents debt slavery? Let alone Andrew Jackson. Our country's economy was sold by Woodrow Wilson, and Nixon decades, at the advice of Senator Rockefeller, the corporate imperialist fossil he was, didn't help us out either.

  17. Y'all it's just paper, they aren't gonna come from the dead and ask you why they removed them from a paper bill. Y'all just pressed 😂, however, I do believe we should have a person with special meaning to this country weather it may be a woman or man.

  18. I see there are still a few Racist azz white folks out here. You fools are a Dying Breed and I take great pride and joy knowing that in 60 years, most of you will be dead. And some of you will have to depend on some black person taking care of your old azz, and then you will learn the True meaning Humility. So be well and get old you Mother F*ckers!! 🤣🤣🤣

  19. You're racist if you think Jackson should stay on the bill instead of Tubman. Don't @ me. That being said I highly doubt the Tubman bill will ever exist. Slavery is a part of our history that I feel most older white people are actually proud of. Which is disgusting.

  20. I will just go inside the bank an withdraw all one dollar bills. If enough people do this they will realize the mistake they made.

  21. I don’t care if they put her on it or not. But ya’ll are so pressed over money. It’s JUST a piece of paper. You have it in your wallet, and probably never see it again until you take it out to make a purchase. Then, you don’t care who’s face is on it. Do you really stare at a dollar for that long to get in your feelings about who is on it? Wow. America’s adults are just racist and problematic. God bless the younger generation..They are our only hope.

  22. Why is everyone so against this? Money always changes. Grover Cleveland used to be on the $20 bill and Andrew Jackson was once on the $10 bill. I see nothing wrong with Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.

  23. If there is funding for it (which there probably isn’t) just do it. Not sure why people have a problem with it… Jackson and Tubman both are significant figures in US history…. just my 2 cents

  24. Why would they put a real American icon on a filthy dirty 20 dollar bill? I can't imagine seeing her memory being passed around in casinos, bars, all sorts of criminal transactions throughout the world. What a disgrace.

  25. This is a white man's country. Of course they aren't going to put a black persons on a bill of currency, only white men.

  26. first, i'm an old white man. but i would support a dred scott twenty dollar bill. a lot of people are suggested. tubman is historically significant, and a woman. i get that. but harmless as a representative. dred scott, on the other hand, would be strong. with the supreme court building facade on the reverse.

  27. Why not put a black revolutionary fighter on the 20 dollar bill, of which there were quite a few, instead of someone who wasn't around during that period oftime time

  28. The rest of my life I will not spend a Berry political correctness 20. Too f…ing bad people, back in the day there were slaves. Get over it.

  29. Harriet Tubman didn't end slavery, the countless WHITE Union soldiers who sacrificed their lives for our societal enemies (blacks) were responsible for the abolishment of slavery.
    Once again blacks are trying to take credit for white achievements and sacrifices. Diversity was never our strength. Coexistence between our two peoples will never happen.

  30. Do you have change for a $100? Sure do… How would you like your change, sir? 10's and 5's please, no Hubs on my Dubs!

  31. I really do believe it's well warranted for a historic icon who went front line to have precedence over some chair jockey racist who never represented anything within the concept of human rights or morale values to be forever in the thoughts of Americans who feed our economic growth on the daily. Jesse Jackson and Andrew Jackson were simply garbage and ironically were likely related if you consider Jesse's "my ancestors we're slaves" speech. Deltron 3030 once said "heathens will bread heathens so everybody's suspect"

  32. In this new times you only have girl power and black power you can call it girl black power 💪 lol 😂😂 some one should called Beyonce maybe she knows about it or Jay-Z lol maybe Snoop knows everything haha

  33. if you just want a real monkey on the cover of the $20 bill please just take a picture at the zoo and print it out a $20 bill with a real monkey on the $20 bill and maybe just maybe the monkey at the zoo we'll have a better picture than that m********* old woman black bat

  34. I will refuse to use it. Keep digging deeper to find a Black worthy of the honor…and don't kick someone else off of THEIR bill.

  35. Racist people Hate innocent Black people. We don't Hate them…we were raised to fear God, not Man. IF THEY DON'T LIKE THE WAY AMERICA HAS EVOLVED, Stop using the INTERNET because a Black man Philip Emeagwali & Mark E. Dean created the INTERNET and Henry Thomas Sampson, Jr. created the CELL PHONE gamma-electric cell device. WITHOUT these Black ppl you could not access your Social Media & the Internet.

  36. Put her on all my money. Seriously. I love American history, I've researched quite a lot of it. But there has never been anyone who even comes close to being as badass as Harriet Tubman.
