Drop all the old dead people off all the bills and put things like:
Statue of Liberty
The White House
Golden Gate/Brooklyn Bridge
They are banknotes, not the Library of Congress. The value of the bills aren't changing, so who really cares?

I disagree; putting the face of a former slave on the 20 insures that US guilt for slavery is enshrined and in everyone's face..................forever! This way US whites can never deny their unjust enrichment at the hands of the black slaves that built this country and made it what it is today.

As a reminder of what could be.
If he wasn't on the $20 even fewer people would know anything about him. As it is I think you'd be hard pressed to find an average American that could tell you anything about him other than that he is on the $20 bill.

Betting it's why they're changing the $20 now and not the $10 like the original plan was. Guess him being on the $20 was a sore spot for them and they'd like people to forget about him.
