The Harriet Tubman 20 Debate Continues

The caption under Harriet Tubman reads ‘slave liberator.’ And I get it. Hear me out though. Ain’t nobody consign homeboy on the 20 dollar bill and I’m not here for a legend being fake celebrated as Yet another way to appease/ distract the masses. Fuck a face on paper money. Prosecute one of these damn killer cops. Create legislation that demands equality and accessibility not in theory, but with a clear plan of ACTION that will actually be ENFORCED by the men and women who are supposed to represent us and our interests. Have a REAL conversation about what’s REALLY going on in the world for the next election. Support the #BlackSpring like we did the #ArabSpring THAT I would be impressed by. This means less than nothing to me. In 300 years when they’ve erased slavery from the history books and kids only know Harriet Tubman as ‘the woman on the 20 dollar bill’ it will be too late for you to feel some kinda way. #StayWoke #HarrietTubman #BlackLegaciesMatter #MuseumsNotMoney
