Raven-Symone Receives Huge Backlash After Saying Harriet Tubman Shouldn't Be on the $20 Bill

Raven-Symone is receiving a ton of backlash after saying she doesn’t think historical icon Harriet Tubman should be on the $20 bill.

“No offense to everyone that’s going to be mad at me for saying this, 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 choose a different woman, no offense,” the 29-year-old entertainer said on The View.

The idea of Harriet Tubman being on the twenty dollar bill came out of an informal poll asking what female should be on the currency.

Raven-Symone Doesn't Like Labels: 'I'm Not African American'

Raven-Symone is speaking out about her dislike of being labeled by stereotypes in society.

The 28-year-old actress appeared on Oprah Winfrey‘s Where Are They Now? program to open up about her sexuality and views on race.

“I’m tired of being labeled,” she said. “I’m an American. I’m not an African American; I’m an American… I mean, I don’t know where my roots go to. I don’t know how far back they go… I don’t know what country in Africa I’m from, but I do know that my roots are in Louisiana. I’m an American. And that’s a colorless person.”

Oprah then warned her: “You’re going to get a lot of flak for saying you’re not African American. You know that, right?”

“I don’t label myself. I have darker skin. I have a nice, interesting grade of hair. I connect with Caucasian. I connect with Asian. I connect with Black. I connect with Indian. I connect with each culture,” Raven said.
