Verb: The act of throwing trash out of a car window.
Now folks, this isn't racist, you'll soon see why.
Originating from a Minneapolis magazine entitled "Life Sucks Die," circa 1995. An article was published urging people to litter. One of it's arguments for littering was that the roads were built on the backs of slaves an indegenous peoples by oppressers. Thus, litering defies the oppressor and gives a little bit of justice to those slaves. The one cited was Harriet Tubman. Adapted to mean throwing trash out of a car window. Now in known use by over 1000 childreen in Minnesota.
1."Yo, don't Harriet Tubman right now, there's a cop behind us."
2."Last night I Harriet Tubman'd my milkshake by accident."
