Raven-Symoné is back on “The View” as a guest host and back in headlines after she revealed she doesn’t like the idea of having Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.

She has a better idea….

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.
