Interesting story on CNN. They are considering taking Andrew Jackson off of the twenty dollar bill ?
Nobody talks about AJ very much. Some viewers said in the first half of the 1800's he did something that caused Indians to lose much land.
The talk involves putting a women on the 20.00. They surveyed many people (but we all know it's who,when,where,and why that shapes the results of any survey), and the leader of choices was Harriet Tubman who was in first place. Eleanor Roosevelt was top 3.
I can't see this happening. Black people haven't yet gotten fair justice, protection from the police, civil/judicial equality, incarceration rates, or employment equality.
Does anyone believe that putting an old black women on the 20.00 is going to help ? I don't.
I also think a very old, white, wealthy set of decision makers (FOX - Koch - Church) will make it difficult for the change to pass.
Hell, they haven't even taken Obama Care apart yet.
Sadly, there are too many closet racists out there for us to expect anything except baby steps towards leveling the playing field.
