Who’s on our U.S. Currency
Can you name who is on our U.S. currencies? Do you know why? When a top 5 finalist contender for the Miss U.S.A. crown believes that every denomination is of a past U.S. president, it is embarrassing. When two vote for Oprah to be on a bill, and one withholds any opinion, I am disappointed. I was a huge fan of Oprah until she said that she believes that older white people are the problem with America today, and that they need to die so that racism can end. “There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die,” she said proudly in a past interview. Because one was bred and marinated in a previous era does not mean that they hold on to those beliefs today. People and opinions may change over time and – some don’t – whether bred and marinated then, or now. I would rather a Miss U.S.A. contender knows U.S. history as to who are the founding fathers, who is our Vice President along with the words to the Star Spangled Banner. I would refresh my memory if I was running for Miss U.S.A. Oh yeah… I love my very open minded white mother who was born from a past generation – I hope she doesn’t die any time soon.
FYI answer is: Ben Franklin on the $100 and Alexander Hamilton on the $20
