Why are only 10 black American Idol contestants sueing?!
That is because the show discriminated them!
These 10 contestants accused producers of conducting a "cruel and inhumane" plot to exploit them for ratings!! They illegally dug up their arrest histories and used these records to humilliate on national TV!
The contestants lawyer claims that only black contestants were asked about a criminal background, never white people.
