My Country Tis of Thee

Black children are turned away from a suburban swimming pool in North Philadelphia because they “would change the complexion … and the atmosphere of the club.” Complexion, eh?

Also, to prove that Shitibank (after nickel and diming me to the tune of $46.50 this month in fees, fees, fees) still hasn’t quite gotten the hang of what to do with customers who aren’t hedge fund pirates, I got this in the mail:

As a Citibank customer, there’s an exciting new offer available to you. Now, when you open and fund a Citibank® Money Market Plus Account, you can get more for your money — starting with a $200 cash bonus.* It’s just our way of saying thank you for banking with us.

Getting started is easy:

1. Just open a Citibank Money Market Plus Account by 7/31/09, deposit $50,000 in new-to-bank funds and link it to your Citibank checking account.

2. Maintain a minimum of $50,000 in your Citibank Money Market Plus Account through 10/31/09.

3. Get a $200 cash bonus.

Yeah, I’m thinking… no.
