Petition Calls for Name Change at Andrew Jackson Post Office

President Jackson is credited for many things, but he’s also criticized for owning slaves and blamed for the forced relocation of thousands of native Americans during his time in office.

It is for those reasons, petitioner Erik B. Anderson wants his name off the building.

The ultimate irony is that Jackson HATED paper money. He killed the Bank of the United States, and the US economy along with it.

Yet, his face is on the most popular bill printed.

The obvious answer is to take ol' Andy off the Twenty. Josephine Baker gets my vote . . .
We decide which is right; and which is an illusion. I've got blisters on me fingers!

The city of Seattle was named after a slave holder.
Will his statues be torn down?

The story of Chief Seattle:

"Like many of his contemporaries, he (Chief Seattle) owned slaves captured during his raids."

Yes sir, I agree with 122 that we should remove Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill. But we shouldn't stop there and should also remove Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton and Franklin from US currency since they were all slaveowners (arguably Grant, too). Further, I believe the petitioner and all those who believe we should eliminate any image of our historic past (tho dark) should set this example:

I petition those persons further protest by removing as much currency that their pockets and bank accounts will allow for disposal. In solidarity, I will volunteer to dispose of said images to relieve them of the burden and guilt.

You are welcome.

I guess the Seattle Seahawks will have to change their name.
Can't have a team named after a slave owner.

What history are they trying to change? Andrew Jackson was a slave owner. He forcibly removed the Cherokee nation from their lands in Georgia. He signed a law that legalized the theft and forcible removal of a people from their ancestral lands. Sure it was all legal at that time in our history, but it was still a shameful chapter of our history. But maybe your point is that this peaceful and legal exercise of free speech gives the racists and white supremacists another reason to rally around Trump and his god fearing christian evangelicals.......

How is taking a name off of a building changing history? I'll tell you what changing history is, it's making it seem as though the Rosewood and Tulsa massacres never happened.

What’s the fascination with these weak liberal
idiots wanting to change everything? Are they seriously such weak individuals that something so petty hurts them? Our country was made by war, killing, slavery, etc. That was the way of life hundreds of years ago. I’m
not saying any of it is right but you have to remember back then it wasn’t looked at like it is now. Good or bad it’s our history and it has shaped us into the country we are now.

Imagine if all of these losers out this much effort into their current lives and quit worrying about ancient history that has zero impact on their current life. They might actually get out of their parents house at some point...

Not everyone is as ignorant as you Craig. I have known about Juneteenth since about 1985. That was when I took an African American history class. You know, one of those classes you used to make fun of.

Gosh Craig, if it doesn't mean anything, why are you so invested in complaining about the changes? If it isn't important, why not just let it happen, and keep your trap closed?

You kids keep calling him racist. What exactly makes him racist? Are any of you capable of thinking for yourself or do you all just repeat what the media says?

Because it’s a sign of just how weak our society is as a whole. A bunch of whiny babies who think cancelling history will somehow make things better. It’s pathetic.

I love those imbeciles who say look at the polls!!

Just the other day Biden was up by 14%.

Hahahahahaha.

Shoot...Hillary was up by 14% less than two weeks before the election in 2016.

https://time.com/4546942...-donald-trump-lead-poll/

Will they EVER learn?

Hillary was suppose to be a slam freaking dunk.

Decent people from all political spectrums see and hear who's silent when it comes to who is NOT denounces the riots.

Decent people will remember and vote accordingly on November 3rd.

Watch and learn...AGAIN.
