Bank Finds Out Harriet Tubman Debit Card Wasn’t A Good Idea
Black History Month has been one crazy ride and we are only 14 days in as a bank decided to do the unthinkable with a popular African American icon with a popular Marvel movie.
According to Complex, the executives at OneUnited Bank had a bright idea to create a new debit card with the image of abolitionist Harriet Tubman doing what appears to be crossing her arms like the symbol "Wakanda Forever" from the Marvel blockbuster Black Panther.
We have the power to place Harriet Tubman on a global payment device in celebration of Black History Month. This symbol of Black empowerment in 2020 will pave the way for the Harriet Tubman design on the $20 bill.
While the jester was thoughtful I find it very hard to imagine Harriet Tubman saying "Wakanda Forever." Matter of fact I would just rather have her on a $20 bill.
So in the words of T'Challa OneUnited Bank...."We don't do that here!"
