In a shocking development, and one that probably angers “The View’s” vapid and air-headed co-host Raven-Symone, slave revolutionary Harriet Tubman, who freed up to a 1,000 slaves along the legendary “Underground Railroad” during the Antebellum South, will received one of the nation’s highest honors as her image will grace the $20 bill.
The U.S. Department of the Treasury has decided that iconic abolitionist Tubman will replace disgraced slaveowner Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill and become the first woman to grace an American currency in more than 100 years.
Immediately, a flood of responses hit the airwaves and cyberspace, including from Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Take a look at some of the most interesting and provocative:
A woman, a leader, and a freedom fighter. I can’t think of a better choice for the $20 bill than Harriet Tubman: https://t.co/YcsZC4ZrKg -H

I love that Harriet Tubman, who risked her life more than ten times to free slaves, will replace a slaveholder on the $20. Very cool.
