    And yet another sector of said "community" shoots themselves in the foot by expecting more than they'e earned, or deserve ....:rolleye:
    ...So sad


    'American Idol' is racist, lawyer claims:
    Nine former contestants, including Corey Clark, primed to sue

    Idol' executive producer Nigel Lythgoe called the allegations 'ridiculous.' 'We treat everybody the same ... no matter the race, religion or sex,' he said.

    The hit talent show "American Idol" has been waging an off-key campaign to boost ratings by playing the race card, a New York lawyer claims.

    The attorney, James Freeman, said the show has been juicing-up the drama by publically revealing that some black contestants have arrest records - and then using that as an excuse to boot them off the show.

    Freeman said he has submitted a letter to the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission asking for permission to sue the show on behalf of nine humiliated African-American contestants - all of them male.

    But Freeman declined to release a copy when contacted by The Daily News - and said he could not explain how the celebrity website TMZ.com got the letter.

    "I don't know how they got it, but they got it," Freeman said Friday. "I'm not trying to litigate these claims through the press."

    Your statement is inaccurate... You zero in on such words because you are a closeted-biggot

    You must admit, a high percentage of your threads are related to African Americans.
