For quite some time, there were plans to remove Alexander Hamilton from the 10 dollar bill. Well, after protest from Puerto Rican Broadway actor and creator of the popular show ‘Hamilton,’ Lin-Manuel Miranda and others, the 10 dollar bill has been spared. Instead, president Andrew Jackson (a slave owner) will be replaced with former African slave and abolitionist,
Harriet Tubman. The news has been met with different reactions. Some feel that it is a disrespect to Andrew Jackson, while others believe Ronald Reagan or another president should have been chosen. Unfortunately, some conservatives have taken to social media to voice their protect with racist tones.
Harriet Tub man will replace Andrew Jackson on the 20 dollar bill.

#HarrietTubman was a law breaking nigger, stealing other niggers from the white man! No need to put her on the $20 bill. #Southwillriseagain
