Raven-Symone doesn't want Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill

Raven-Symone would like to see a woman on the $20 bill, but doesn't think it should be Harriet Tubman.

Tubman was the winner in an online poll conducted by the group Woman On 20s, which has advocated for a woman to replace President Andrew Jackson on a new $20 bill.

While guest-hosting Wednesday's episode of "The View," Symone said she'd prefer someone "closer to the progression that we're doing now."

"No offense to everyone that's going to be mad at me for saying this, I don't like that idea," she said of Tubman potentially being on the $20 bill. "I think we need to move a little bit more forward. Let me just preface that I understand the history, I get it, trust me, I was taught, I'm in that culture..."

So, who would she have picked instead?

"Me personally, I would have chosen Rosa Parks," she added. "I would have chosen someone that is closer to the progression that we're doing now. And I know you have to understand history so that you don't repeat it, but that doesn't really happen in our world, because we still repeat history of hating other cultures over and over again. So I would choose a different one, no offense."

Activists are hoping to get a woman on the $20 bill -- whether it be Tubman or another female historical figure -- and have it in circulation by 2020, the 100th anniversary of a woman's right to vote.
