Every time I’ll go pull out the $20 bill and I see Harriet Tubman’s face judging me, I’ll think twice about my purchase. This is good.

This Harriet Tubman on the $20 is almost too good to be true. Jackson was human garbage. Tubman is one of the bravest Americans ever.

I understand the argument against having Harriet Tubman on the $20 but…. I just politely disagree w/ it.
