Reactions to the news that the Biden Administration was restarting efforts to put abolitionist and freedom fighter Harriet Tubman on the front of the $20 bill were very mixed. 

As Blavity previously reportedWhite House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Monday that the Treasury Department would be working to put Tubman on the bill as a continuation of the plan started in 2016 by former President Barack Obama.

But the response now was a bit different than it was back then, with some questioning whether this should be the priority right now for a government facing a cascading series of crises, an impeachment hearing next week and a mismanaged COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

Others asked whether it was appropriate to put Tubman, a former slave, on currency considering she was treated like currency before she freed herself and others from chattel slavery. 

But the NAACP loved the idea and tweeted out their excitement with a reference to a recent viral video.

The responses were far from positive, to say the least.

For many people, the effort to put Tubman on the bill itself is tone-deaf considering the dire needs of Black people struggling to survive during the economic devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic. So the tweet itself stood little chance.

The Biden administration pledged to provide $2,000 stimulus checks but that effort has now stalled as Republicans and Democrats in the Senate push back against the White House and the bill passed in the House. 

Others said it was a symbolic gesture to mask the fact that the government will never provide reparations to the descendants of American slavery. Some even said that at the very least, Tubman's descendants should get reparations before her face is put on U.S. currency. 

But for all of the well-thought-out arguments against it, most people just thought it was just corny. 

As of Tuesday morning, the tweet hasn't been deleted yet, but due to the overwhelmingly negative response, it may not be up for much longer.
