Liberals worry people will think blacks are worth $20



Not content with Obama's latest offering to political correctness, replacing a white man (Andrew Jackson) with a black woman (Harriet Tubman) on the $20 bill, some liberals are worried that doing so might mean that blacks are still like slaves and only worth $20.

However, for some, placing Tubman on American greenbacks is an extension of the commodification of enslaved people and a slap in the face to her legacy. “I don’t want to see Tubman commodified with a price, as she once was as a slave,” wrote theGuardian’s Steven W. Thrasher last summer.

Before the 1860s, it was common for banks to issue their own notes embellished with images that served as anti-counterfeit devices. Several bills printed in Confederate states during the Civil Warfeatured sketches of enslaved people. These images depict enslaved people in captivity with plantation tools and crops in their hands. The American Bank Note Company and Bald, Cousland & Company also issued a series of vignettes intended for print currency that contained scenes of draymen and field hands breaking hemp, hauling sugar cane, tapping sap from large trees, and picking cotton.

Is Tubman’s postmortem appearance on the $20 comparable to the exploitative images of anonymous enslaved people on Confederate currency? Or will the new $20 find a new way of depicting black bodies on money—one that is empowering rather than degrading?

This just goes to show that nothing will ever satisfy liberals. Nothing. They will always find a way to be offended. Why is it that when a white man is on a $20 bill, it doesn't mean that the white man is worth $20, but when a black woman is on the $20 bill, it means blacks can be sold for $20?

I'll bet if they had put a black person on a $1000 bill they still wouldn't be satisfied. Liberals can never be happy because they are constantly looking for ways to be offended.

Affirmative action in college slots is not enough. Affirmative action in hiring is not enough. Welfare is never enough. Congressional districts tailored to elect minorities is never enough.

If liberals spent a tenth of their energy they use to find offenses against minorities into pushing minorities to be more self-sufficient and to feel less victimized, we'd have a better world.

By the way, if Obama were put on the penny, would that constitute a "microaggression"?
