Raven-Symoné Faces Backlash After Harriet Tubman Comments

On The View, the hosts were having a conversation as to which woman they would like to see replace President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. An online poll saw most participants vote for Harriet Tubman, over other female icons like Eleanor Roosevelt and Rosa Parks.

Raven-Symoné didn’t agree with the general consensus, saying, “I would have 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.”

People took to Twitter, where Raven was trending, and started complaining about her and her comments.
