Letter: Remove racist president from our country’s currency

Remove racist president from our country’s currency

Here’s an idea: Suppose we leave Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill and put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, replacing Andrew Jackson, who was a major slaveholder and double racist (Blacks and Indians). Would that make too much sense?

And while we’re at it, though the Constitution protects the average mouth-breathing racist’s personal use of the stars and bars, at least we could ban it from official government buildings in a South, where it should still be clear that too many of the white citizens pine for the “good old days” of slavery, lynchings and Jim Crow.
