People Are Torn Over Harriet Tubman Visa Card Featuring "Wakanda Forever" Symbol 1

People Are Torn Over Harriet Tubman Visa Card Featuring “Wakanda Forever” Symbol. Twitter has been up in arms over a limited edition Visa card from OneUnited Bank. The limited release Visa meant to celebrate Black History Month features Harriet Tubman with her arms crossed in the “Wakanda Salute” from the popular Marvel Studios film ‘Black Panther‘.

Some folks find the card amusing, while others are calling for OneUnited to apologize for the controversial imagery. Calling it disrespectful and bewildered that the image was approved for production. One Twitter user captured a screenshot of OneUnited Bank’s tweet regarding the card saying, “Our limited-edition Harriet Tubman Visa Debit Card is a symbol of Black empowerment Don’t miss out! [Get the card] today!”

 

Others were not nearly as amused by the depiction.

We love the traditional use of the ‘Wakanda Salute’ for Marvel fans to use as a connection to one another and their heritage, but this is not exactly what we had in mind to connecting to that kind of fellowship.
