RantRacism of the Worst Kind in the American Red Cross Pin

Today I went to donate blood to the American Red Cross. Cool | :cool: I have donated literally gallons of blood in Britain and also some in Germany.

I joked about whether my blood was compatible with American blood since I am British. Wink | ;)

They said, "No. Go away." OMG | :OMG:

Apparently, obviously superior British blood is just too good for these poor Americans. WTF | :WTF:

They had a feeble excuse for their overt racism... something about BSE or something like that. I pointed out that not only was I not a mad cow, I wasn't a cow at all, but they insisted I couldn't give blood and sent me off with a biscuit (which they called a "cookie").

How many lives were not saved today because of this pernicious excuse for obvious racism!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
