Raven-Symone Doesn't Think Harriet Tubman Should Be on the $20 Bill [Video]


Another day, another controversial Raven-Symone remark.

Raven-Symone served as guest co-host on yesterday’s episode of The View, and she may have (yet again) put her foot in her mouth.

During the “Hot Topics” segment of the morning talk show, the group discussed the proposal that former president Andrew Jackson be replaced on the $20 bill by none other than slave abolitionist Harriet Tubman.

The always outspoken Raven-Symone isn’t a fan of the idea. Peep her words below.

“No offense to everyone that’s going to be mad at me for saying this, [but] I don’t like that idea. I think we need to move a little bit forward. Let me just preface that I understand the history. I get it. Trust me. I was taught… I was in that culture. I would’ve chosen Rosa Parks. I would have chosen someone that is closer to the progression that we’re doing now. I know you have to understand history so you don’t repeat it, but that doesn’t happen in our world, because we still repeat history of hating other cultures over and over again. I would’ve chosen a different woman, no offense.”

Raven-Symone is already catching flack for her remarks, but do you think she has a point?
