This is interesting.
Judge Joe Brown would prefer a Black man on the $20 bill, instead of Harriet Tubman.
During a recent interview, the former TV judge speaks about Harriet Tubman possibly being on the bill and needless to say, he is not here for it. He states, “The status of an ethnic group is determined by its men, not its women,” Brown said. “And putting a Black woman on there before a Black man is insulting to the Black race because you’re saying the men ain’t worth a damn [if] you put a woman up there first.”
He also speaks about feminist, “I don’t give a d*** about feminists. They can go straight to hell. I know they hate themselves because they got two X chromosomes instead of an XY. They’re fraudulent, self-hating, and they’re sick.”
Now, feminists aren’t the ones behind the decision to put Tubman on the bill, rather former Treasury Secretary Jack Lew made the decision back in 2016. Earlier this year, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin- announced the redesigning would be delayed until 2028.
Judge Brown also expresses how he feels about the movie Harriet, “This movie is to soften the public up to the idea of taking a Black woman who freed slaves by leading them to freedom and getting her or another one like her on a $20 bill,” the former TV judge said. “They can’t get a White woman, so they want a Black woman. They don’t care, they just want a woman, and it downs masculinity.”
As if the comments above weren’t enough, Brown then took to Twitter to further explain himself. He tweets, “I respect Black Women immensely, I’m prepared to die for them. However, our race has been kept in line by the suppression of its men.”
Whew! What are your thoughts on this?
I respect Black Women immensely
I’m prepared to die for them
Our race has been kept in line by the suppression of its’ Men
A protocol of slavery was to always recognize & promote the Female & disparage the Male
The ‘Lady-bill’ thing is a continuation of this tactic
