Part 5: I write to the President of CitiBank Customer Service posted at THE SKILLED INVESTOR Blog, saying, "I wondered why the heck is a Citibank executive in South Dakota? Normally, I do not care where a bank’s or any other corporation’s headquarters is, as long as they are efficient and responsive and meet their product and service commitments.

The philosophy is: hide your racism in order to create a more harmonious workplace."
