Abolitionist goes on $20 Bill, Replaces Andrew Jackson

by Right Wing Fighter

Black abolitionist Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 dollar bill, reports the Associated Press.

From the AP:

The leader of the Underground Railroad will replace the portrait of Andrew Jackson, the nation’s seventh president and a slave owner, who will be pushed to the back of the bill.

The AP forgot to mention that Jackson also prevented South Carolina from seceding during his administration, and staved off the civil war for several decades. Jackson had many faults, a lot more than most presidents actually. But he was a stout defender of the Union, and for that he deserves to stay on the $20 bill.
