I have no love for Bank of America, for several reasons. And I despise HSBC (Sharia compliant). They came into our area and built two branches in each of the towns around here, ugly glass boxes that just aren't appealing. Now most of them have closed. So, it was a bit of a shock to see that HSBC actually had a higher rating the BOA. Sadly, BOA has over extended, just like HSBC did, but unlike HSBC (never thought I was say something positive about HSBC) they didn't reorganize and restructure. They may have tried with their $5.00/month fee for their ATM cards, but that ended up with them losing A LOT of customers. Anyway, be that as it may, if BOA goes down, it'll really hurt this country. They have their tentacles everywhere.

Should Black People Tolerate This?

How sad. In my own town, there is a gang war going on between some black folks who live here and others who live in the largest city in our state. It has all the earmarks of the Hatfield/McCoy feud. To date, we've buried three. I know the other city has buried at least one (the initial victim), and probably more from this gang war. After the third murder, one of our middle school principals said she was tired of having to do bake sales and fund raising to help the families pay for the funerals. Nobody's talking to the police. Apparently it is more acceptable to use street justice than courts of law. How utterly sad and hopeless.
