The $5 bill is set to get an upgrade of sorts. While former President Abraham Lincoln’s image will still grace the front of it, the reverse side of the bill is set to "honor historic events that occurred at the Lincoln Memorial," including moments made memorable from the likes of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., opera singer Marian Anderson and former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, the U.S. Treasury Department announced Wednesday afternoon.

The selection of the three historic figures is noteworthy for a number of reasons, but the fact that they're all either African-American or women, or in Anderson's case, both, is a significant milestone for American currency, which traditionally has only featured white people and has very rarely included a woman. It was not immediately clear when the new $5 will go into circulation.

All of my money is now "Trans-Monetary Value" money now.

That means my $5 bills identify as $100 bills and so on. And you HAVE to respect it and honor it's self identified value.

When do we start panic buying pre-ban federal reserve notes with white people on them?

Eh don't worry guys! The old white guys who created this oppressive country are still on pocket change!

Hero of the cause Bruce Jenner should get the $1.

Oh well, we can change just one coin. Once the hero of the civil rights movement for pedophilia comes forward and leads the charge for acceptance and special status. We can put him on the dime since it is the smallest coin and only 10.

We need to celebrate the real heroes of America people!

This isn't about race or gender. It is defining the next American century.  The left is setting the stage to redefine and rewrite history erasing the real history and replacing it to forge the unborn generations to believe the left has always been the foundation of the country.


Fundamental change at its core.

Yep. Another example was purging history by removing Confederate monuments and grave sites last year.

So what? We've had Indians on currency before. They ain't honkies.

We've had women on currency before.  The most beautiful coins we've minted had women on them.  And fuck you if you say Sacajawea or Susan B. Anthony.
