Good for Bank of America!

As a gay customer of BoA, I say thank you for standing up to bigotry. Lots of links in this article, but the bottom line is that corporate America knows better than to openly discriminate against gay people.

Bank of America board slaps down shareholder anti-gay proposalAnother winger proxy issue comes to vote at a corporate shareholder meeting (see earlier post on Kraft blowing off its stockholder fundie).

This time it's Bank of America, and its board has recommended the rejection of Louisiana shareholder Virginia M. Brown's proposal which would require BoA's management to "amend its written equal opportunity policy to explicitly exclude reference to sexual orientation."

The right wing wants to act like discrimination against gays won't hurt businesses or their states, but in the long run, it will. We know where to go, where to live, and anyone that values diversity knows this too.
