    Default Raven-Symoné on Putting Harriet Tubman on the $20: 'I Don't Like That'

    Raven-Symoné on Putting Harriet Tubman on the $20: 'I Don't Like That'



    One of the best things about having Raven-Symoné guest-host on The View is that gives her a daily, national platform on which to share her many insightful opinions. Her latest: Union spy and legendary abolitionist Harriet Tubman should not be on the $20 bill.


    Debating her fellow co-gremlins (sorry, I meant CO-HOSTS; don’t know why that always happens) on which woman should replace Andrew Jackson on the $20, Raven laid out her objections to Harriet Tubman, the current frontrunner:

    “No offense to everyone who’s going to be mad at me for saying this: I don’t like that idea. I don’t like it. I think we need to move a little bit forward... Let me just preface [by saying], I understand the history. I get it, trust me. I was taught, I’m in that culture. But there’s also Wilma Mankiller, there’s also Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Harriet Tubman... Me personally, I would’ve chosen Rosa Parks. I would have chosen someone that is closer to the progression that we’re doing now. I know you have to understand history so you don’t repeat it, but that doesn’t happen in our world, because we still repeat history of hating other cultures over and over again. So I would choose a different one, no offense.”


    That’s SO Raven!

    Rosa Parks would be worthy for sure. Harriet Tubman was pretty fricken badass though. The courage and conviction she must have had is stunning.

    I voted Wilma Mankiller, since Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson was an Indian killer who set the Cherokee people (along with other tribes) off on the Trail(s) of Tears, and Wilma became first female principle chief of the Western Cherokee Nation.

    I like the idea of Harriet Tubman because if I win a big bet, I can say, "Show me the Tubmans, Baby."

    She has a valid point and is entitled to her opinion. But her haircut is stupid.

    Although I obviously respect and admire Rosa Parks, the fact that her refusal to give up her bus seat was a test case for a lawsuit (she was the third test person who refused to give up her seat) makes me lean towards Harriet Tubman. She did what she did with no "backing," her actions were punishable by death and she literally saved over 300 people with a $50,000 bounty on her head.

    This.

    They're both much more courageous women than I would have been in their shoes, but Harriet Tubman goes down in history as a certified badass of an order than not many humans, not even limiting it to women, ever will.
