With racial animosity surging in the aftermath of George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin, what an opportune time to have a racial discrimination beef in America.

As the race baiting industry works overtime to create the impression that racism is running rampant in the country, 10 former American Idol contestants have filed a lawsuit against the show, alleging that they were mistreated and unfairly disqualified because of their race.

Oh, and they are seeking damages of $25 million dollars each.

The lawsuit stems from a complaint the group filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission citing ”cruel and inhumane” treatment, as reported by Radio.com.

The complaint says the show has only publicly disqualified black contestants in its history, and that arrest records were illegally dredged up to make the black contestants appear to be “violent criminals, liars and sexual deviants,” further perpetuating “destructive stereotypes.”

The ten contestants further claim that “American Idol” never probed into white contestants’ criminal histories, according to Radio.com.

With recent stories suggesting racism is behind Detroit’s financial collapse and even student loan debt, the lawsuit is sure to draw the attention of a media fully invested in the false narrative of unchecked racism in America.
