6:04AM - MBNA
MBNA offers a rainbow credit card, now. The offer, sent to a gay person I know, said this:
I am proud of the growing strength and unity of the lesbian and gay community. Despite our gains over the past few decades, a mere 2% of all philanthropic dollars in the United States are targeted specifically to gay and lesbian causes.
I'm invited you to help make a difference. The Rainbow Card draws on the economic power of our community to support causes such as HIV/AIDS and breast cancer research and services, as well as lesbian and gay arts, cultural and civil rights initiatives. Since its inception, the Rainbow Card program has raised nearly $1.5 million to support causes relevant to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
Generate funds automatically
The concept is simple. Request a Rainbow Platinum Plus Visa credit card issued by MBNA America Bank, N.A. and use it to make the same purchases you ordinarily do. Every time you use your Rainbow Card to buy an item, dine out, or travel, a portion of your transaction goes directly to the nonprofit Rainbow Endowment, and out to the lesbian and gay community, at no additional cost to you.
You Benefit, Too
But, there's more to the Rainbow Card than "socially responsible shopping." You'll also benefit from a Visa credit card that's accepted at millions of locations worldwide and features a great APR of 5.9% for purchases right from the start.
The Rainbow Card is now issued by NBNA America Bank, a company known for its commitment to Customer satisfaction. At MBNA, people review credit applications. Personalized lending enables MBNA to give full consideration to applications that might have been turned down by another bank using a strict credit-scoring approach.
Your no-annual-fee Rainbow Card also features enhanced benefits that include a credit line up to $100,000; around-the-clock fraud protection; secure online access to your account, including the ability to schedule payments electronically; and 24-hour personal Customer service.
Plus... you could WIN a Subaru or 4 other fabulous prizes in the "Hit the Road" Sweepstakes. Every Rainbow Card purchase you make now through June 30 counts as an entry to win. There's no limit to the times you can enter - the more you use your card, the more entries you'll have. No purchase necessary to enter or win a prize. See official rules for details.
It all adds up
The chances to WIN a Subaru or 5 other fantastic prizes... the opportunity to support worthy organizations while making ordinary purchases... a 5.9% APR right from the start... no annual fee... these are just some of the reasons to join me as a Rainbow Card member and help support the issues we both care about.
Please call 1-800-###-####, weekdays 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST, for an instant decision on your request. (TTY users, please call blah blah blah) Or blah blah blah, etc., etc.,
I'll leave you to come to your own conclusions. Also, I might want to add, I find it amusing that they have a database with all known gays and gay-sympathizers listed.

I don't read posts in my journal, unless they are really short. I only keep them if they amuse me. They usually bore me. I am a stupid hick, for all you know. I don't care what you say. I am closed minded and opinionated, remember? You can give me your two cents worth to feel high and mighty, but it's pretty much wasted here. Spam me all you want, though. I have never used e-mail updates, so it doesn't go to my e-mail box. And since I don't read long posts, keep it short if you want me to ever actually read whatever the hell you want to say.
I might scan a long post, read the first two lines and the last two lines and then make some hateful, ignorant reply to get the idiot who posted it worked up and pissed off. It usually works. But, usually I just delete the long messages because, like I said, I am a stupid, ignorant hick who is easily bored with longwinded posts.
I am amused by how many people it bothers when they cannot post in the whitefolk community. They want to argue, rant and rave. Most of them would be the kind who say that everyone is entitled to their opinion, but apparently only so if that opinion is the same as theirs. So, most come to my personal journal to rattle on about whatever. And since I don't read it, it just gets deleted. What a waste of your precious mind. And a mind is a terrible thing to waste. So, I recommend if you want others to read what you say you should post it in your own journal. If you just want to insult me in 100 words or less, feel free to post here. I will even unscreen your comment if you are worthy.

7:09AM - Going to Lenox
Every time my sister and I have been to the mall over the past year, wealthy looking black men have tried to pick us up. I questioned one last night and he said it was because we seemed like "sweet, classy women." I am married, but my sister is single. She asked him why he was so interested in white women when there were plenty of black women around the mall. He said it was because he had never met a black woman who would really listen to what he had to say. He said they just bossed him around and talked mean to him. I don't understand why black women are like that. If one were to put black and white men and women in descending order according to their level of belligerence it would be:
1. Black Women
2. White Men
3. Black Men
4. White Women
That's why it is so surprising that more black women aren't republicans like Condi Rice. They just fit right in with the war monger mentality of the president. Their attitudes are so much like Bush's!
The black women I have heard discuss the difference in temperment between black and white women, have always attributed it to white women being submissive. We aren't submissive at all. We are just not full of rage and testosterone. And they call eachother bitches and niggers and wonders why their own men don't want them. It's not that we are submissive, it's that we're nice.

I'm a bit of redneck, I'm told. I'm pretty conservative. I'm a devoted Southern Baptist. To be honest, I might be a little racist. I treat everyone the same. I have a few black friends, who aren't whiny, loudmouthed, lazy or militant. It just seems like a lot of them are. That's because they are loud, I guess. The smart, quiet ones aren't up in your face, so people don't notice them. I get sick of hearing about how they deserve preferential treatment just because their ancestors were slaves. It's a new millennium, get over it. My ancestors were dirt poor and had no preferential treatment to fall back on. If we starved or froze to death in the winter, no one threw up their arms and called it racist. I had to work my ass off through college. They say that a mind is a terrible thing to waste. But I guess according to them, black minds are the only ones worth saving. So, no, I don't want to contribute to the Negro College Fund. If there was a Caucasian College Fund, you would see some bitching. And an all black cable station? What screams of intolerance would you hear if there was an all white station? They'd say it was racist. All that whining about needing "affirmative action" is just causing more hatred than it is curing. And I am also pissed about losing our state flag because it offends black people. No, your ancestors did not die over the flag. Your ancestors died over slavery. Not a flag.
