Raven Symone strikes again with her head-scratching views on race, and we just can’t figure this one out…
She’s guest-hosting The View again and when it came time to discuss the buzzy news about historical icon Harriet Tubman leading the way in an informal poll to put a new (female) face on the $20 bill, Raven poo-pooed the choice.
“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 other ladies didn’t dispute her opinion — they said they just want a woman’s face to grace our currency.
