Should Andrew Jackson be removed from the $20 bill for his involvement in the Trail of Tears?

  • A genocidal murderer is a symbol of America?

    Andrew Jackson can be said to be a great man who wanted to help America, but just because his intentions were good doesn't matter. What matters were the actions he took. To be frank, the great man worshiped on the 20 dollar bill is a genocidal murderer who killed thousands because he thought it was okay.

    So what if he "built America"? He built it on the blood of the innocent and ideals that would later lead to the misery of Native Americans forced to live on pitiful and poor reservations.

    The difference between George Washington and Andrew Jackson is George Washington killed in a WAR to FREE America from OPPRESSION. Jackson killed because he thought Native Americans were below Caucasians. Andrew Jackson was the oppressor.

    Harriet Tubman saved hundreds of lives of the oppressed: Slaves. She was recorded to never have lost a single life, unlike Jackson, she didn't kill. She was a savor who is revered even today. She was a face and a symbol people could look up to. She fought against oppression and saved the lives of people she didn't know.

    The fact she is a women and is black is just a bonus. It will help equality between genders since all the faces on paper money is male. Feminism isn't Girl Power, it is gender equality. Most people have just forgotten that.

    Let's learn from our mistakes as many say and stop worshiping a racist, white, murderous, narrow minded man by giving a black women who saved hundreds of oppressed lives a chance. Harriet saved slaves from people who were just like Andrew Jackson who would have happily tied her to a tree and whipped her to death.

  • Not a good symbol

    America wants to showcase things that we should be proud of, the trail of tears should not be anything, anyone should be proud of. As much as the USA has done good, we have also shown we are capable of terrible, horrific things such as the trail of tears. Yes I think he should be removed.

  • Murderers should never be revered or honored

    The United States is well known for its ability to act upon its people's needs for justice, liberty, freedom, and equality. We must continue this legacy by considering those who deny these rights, not as honorable, but as examples of people we should avoid becoming. This can be done without representation on paper money, which should only present those who are honorable historical figures who support the American legacy and do not belittle entire races of people.

  • Don't celebrate that jagoff

    He doesn't deserve to be honored for what he did. There are presidents who did great things like Ulysses S Grant and George Washington. I think someone like Jackson should never be honored whatsoever. He was a cruel tyrant and a brutal man who had no decency whatsoever. Don't celebrate him.

  • Yes, Andrew Jackson should be removed from the $20 bill.

    Andrew Jackson, while a hero of the war of 1812 an American icon, is also responsible for siding with those that removed the Cherokee from their homes to so called, 'Indian Territory' in present day Oklahoma and killing many Cherokee along the way. Not only that, but Jackson also furthered the so called 'Indian Wars' against many other tribes and fought the Seminoles in Flordia all in the name of the American Empire.

  • Redo All The Money

    If we remove Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill for his involvement in the Trail of Tears, then we my as well redo all of our money. Let's change it all up. I honestly don't care what is on our money as long as it still functions the same way it did before.

  • Hiding the past is not the answer

    None of the founding fathers were saints. George Washington owned slaves as did many of the signers of the Constitution. We shouldn't try to white wash the past and pretend it never happened or worse hide it from future generations. We also can't look at things through a 21st century lens and expect everything that happened 100 years ago to make perfect sense. People need to objectively look at what happened and why and learn from it. IS the Trail of Tears a horrible point in the United State's history, Yes. Do we need to understand why Andrew Jackson did what he did and why, Yes. Is trying to hide him from the public and this event bad, Yes.

  • Enough is enough with the sensitivity.

    Andrew Jackson should not be removed from the twenty dollar bill because of his involvement in the trail of tears. It's a part of history as bad as it is. We took actions that we did and it is now a part of the US horrible history against non whites. If he is to be removed from that, George Washington should be removed for owning slaves.

  • No, Andrew Jackson should not be removed from the $20 bill.

    I do not think that Andrew Jackson should be removed from the $20 bill for his involvement in the Trail of Tears. I think that if such a thing were to occur, a lot of other presidents might be considered for removal from their current bills. I think that this idea is political.

  • He Expanded the U.S. Greatly

    He expanded the United States with the Louisiana purchase and even though the trail of tears could be considered un-ethical it opened the door for more westward expansion. So even though it might seem like he was a terrible person chances are unless you live on the east coast, he is part of the reason you can live where you live now.

  • Stop crying wolf

    No dont change current $ just make a new bill. How dumb are these politicians. So we will habe to get rid of a guys face thats not here to defend himself. The govt does just about whatever they want anyway. Let's change the penny why is it copper color and whys Lincoln on the 5 and on a penny makes mo sense

  • Andrew Jackson Built this Country

    It is absurd to apply 21st Century Ethics to the 18th Century World.
    In one of the greatest victories in American history, memorialized in song, Jackson routed a British army and aborted a British scheme to seize New Orleans, close the Mississippi, and split the Union.
    In 1818, ordered to clean out renegade Indians rampaging in Georgia, Jackson stormed into Florida, seized and hanged two British agitators, put the Spanish governor on a boat to Cuba, and claimed Florida for the USA.

  • It isn't important!

    What would you like us to do? Return the land? That's not going to happen. Let's learn form our mistakes, and not repeat them. Let's remember President Andrew Jackson for the good things that he has done. He brought democracy to the average man, let's celebrate that. We can't be sensitive towards one group of peoples, because no matter what you do, people will be insulter. I actually am a Native American/ American Indian. It doesn't offend me because this country has grown so much since then. Let's learn, move on, and never repeat. The fact that people argue over this is stupid. Fight over the real problems, like wars and starvation, not on the man who is on you $20 bill!
