The United States Mint is about to unveil a new commemorative $100 gold coin which depicts Lady Liberty as an African-American woman, and right wing losers all over social media are losing their tiny fucking minds about it.
Upon release of the coin, the mint also announced that the new design was intended to reflect “the cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States.”
But judging by the online reaction from some narrow-minded douchebags, you’d think the mint had just released a coin paying tribute to ISIS:

@AP That's fine. But if they do one with a Latina on it, it better come with papers…

@AP I'm surprised that it's not a MUSLIM.

@AP I bet if it was a white man on the coin the left would come unglued. Cry babies

@AP take a close look at the Statue of Liberty. Obviously lady liberty is a white European. This is ridiculous!

It’s a freaking commemorative coin! If it offends your pathetic and racist sensibilities, for God’s sake, don’t buy one!
