(Before It's News)

The latest manifestation of the never ending March of Progress in the United States is a movement to replace President Andrew Jackson with abolitionist Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar Federal Reserve Note. An online poll conducted by a feminist organization called Women on the 20s received over 600,000 votes, ultimately selecting Tubman over other Progressive and non-White women. The campaign has made international news. If successful, it would see the highly symbolic replacement of a Southern White slave-owning man who supported the Indian Removal Act (which mandated the forced migration of American Indians to Oklahoma and opened up large areas of land across the South for White settlement) with a Black women who recruited men for John Brown’s (failed) attempted slave revolt, spied for the Union cause during Lincoln’s War Against the South, and promoted Black emancipation, equal rights and women’s suffrage.

The campaign urges the public to “join our virtual march”. The ideologically-motivated movement says that it targeted Jackson for removal because he fought to “make room for white European settlers” in the South and “was a fierce opponent of the central banking system and favored gold and silver coin or ‘hard money’ over paper currency.”
