"Harriet Tubman on a $20 bill? You crazy?" . . . Please come CAPTION Treasury Sec. Steve Mnuchin!!!




Steve Mnuchin is saying: "Listen, the fact is that simply putting a woman's picture on money will undermine confidence in our currency. . . . I mean, who will trust it? . . . Will it only be accurate or have value, say, 25 days a month? . . . Then imagine putting a black woman's image on a bill, . . . Well, you might just as well flush it down the toilet. . . . Besides, have you taken a close look at Tubman's face? . . . Geez."



**********************************************************************

Above CAPTION base on this spud's exchange with Ayanna Pressley during a hearing of the House Financial Services Committee. DU has a sweet clip:

2. I happen to be enough of a traditionalist

that putting any new faces on our bills seem strange and wrong. But I also think that our currency is quite boring and that we should redesign it every so often.

4. I believe it was Dutch paper money that was described as the most beautiful in the world.

That was before the Euro.

3. Here's the image that Mnuchin says will take years to create:



Watch the clip in the OP link. Definitely "soft racism" or, rather. chickenshit racism.

6. S.M. continues:

"And if you put Harriet Tubman on the twenty only black people will want twenties and maybe only black women . . . because they're the only ones who can identify with a black woman, . . . whereas everyone can identify with a white man."
