Skip to comments.American Idol Racism Row: Nine Black Rejects Sue
Posted on 01/25/2013 10:08:04 AM PST by rocky50
American Idol is at the centre of a racism row after nine black former contestants claimed that they were all forced off the show as part of a racist plan to boost ratings.
The singers, from various seasons, are preparing to take legal action against the hit talent show which they say "permanently and severely impaired" their personal and professional lives.

When black and you don’t get “affirmative actioned”....the last refuge for incompetence or being untalented is “racism.”
Everyone deserves to win and being a celebrity is an entitlement.
More of Holder’s people doing what they do best, blaming others because they suck at something.
Idol clearly jumped the shark a few years back but the corpse arose as a zombie.
Putting token blacks without talent in front of the cameras is politically-correct (such as the one we have in the White Hut).
Performing in a job you have no qualifications or talent for is what Racism lawsuits are all about......
If their lawsuit succeeds perhaps I should go try out for the Yankees....Fail Miserably due to having little athletic talent and sue! LOL.... I deserve to have a $100 Million dollar contract and play Baseball....
Just lawyers fishing for an out-of-court settlement.
Actually, reading the article, it seems like they all had some measure of talent, but were dismissed between auditions and final selection because of their criminal records.
How professional can you be if you go on American Idol?.
Rejects Sue = Free Ride
Liberalism IS a mental disease!
Considering the lack of talent of some of the “winners”, they might have a case.
And how does she feel about that? Has Sue contacted a lawyer yet? Everyone is entitled to a black boyfriend.
I’d like to have Nicki Minaj in my duck boat in October. she could just talk constantly and the mallards would come in large flocks, Her voice is much like the noise that ducks make while feeding.
One for the ping list
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."
“perhaps I should go try out for the Yankees....Fail Miserably due to having little athletic talent and sue! LOL.... I deserve to have a $100 Million dollar contract and play Baseball....”
You better have the magic melanonin :-)
Somehow I think people who rely on AutoTune, shouldn’t be judging other singers....but hey, that’s just me.
Last season they had a young black contestant named Joshua who they pushed and pushed...told him he was the best singer of the past 50 years, gave him a standing ovation every time he sang, and he came in third. So far this season, they’re still in the audition phase, but the judges are already fawning over the black contestants, giving them standing ovations, practically declaring them the winners already. American Idol really, really, REALLY wants a black contestant to win, but those pesky ol’ viewers have a nasty habit of voting for whoever they want, not who the judges tell them to vote for! If not enough blacks are winning, they need to blame it on the voters, not American Idol.
Let me guess . . . . . . these are all Obama supporters who believe that EVERYONE should win American Idol.
Except the white contestants.
Yeah, Randy Jackson would agree with that.
“...... and then disqualifying them due to their criminal records.”
Anything I say at this point would certainly be considered racist.
Everyone should know by now that the only way a black can win the Grand Prize is if the other blacks that would give him competition get eliminated early. This is because the Black vote out there is so overwhelmingly Racist, it would get split and the non-Black contestant would benefit.
permanent and severely impaired?
Nikki Minaj doesn’t like Odumbo as she endorsed Romney.
Ruben Studdard is a black man from Alabama, and he won. He was over weight and sweaty. The thing was, he could sing.
So they will deliberately let untalented people win. How is this different from the way people are hired for the IRS and the Post Office?
Does any achievement mean anything anymore?
They have a point. The whole entertainment industry is racist. A black person can’t catch a break. It’s almost as segregated as professional sports, and you know how bad that is. The American public simply won’t support black entertainers, athletes, etc.
“You were brought on the show because you were black. You were off the show when they found you had no talent.”
To be fair, when I watched the show, none of them was that extraordinarily talented, black or white. Certainly Clay Aiken was not more talented than Ruben Stoddard. Talent really doesn’t have anything to do with American Idol, since it’s a glorified popularity contest.
Anyway, if anyone is racist, wouldn’t it have to be the viewers, since they are the ones that voted them off?
Don’t give her ideas. She’ll have a duck for an alternate personality on her next single.
Id like to have Nicki Minaj in my duck boat in October. she could just talk constantly and the mallards would come in large flocks, Her voice is much like the noise that ducks make while feeding.
I’d like to see a mallard in her seat at the judges’ table. I’d understand it better than I can her.
What did Sue ever do to deserve this?
Why are the "dissing" her?
What...? Oh! Wait a minute.
"Nine BlackS Reject Sue"
(dyslexia strikes again)
Everything is racist all the time.
Stick a fork in that show...it’s done!
When I first laid eyes on this Nicki Manaj a couple of weeks back, I thought it was Jessica Rabbit with some work done.
Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson and Reuben Studdard say hello...
“targeted by producers of the Fox show who set out to humiliate them by making them audition and then disqualifying them due to their criminal records.”
“making them audition”???? - how did anyone other than themselves MAKE them audition - not possible
and Idol did this - “made them audtion” - on purpose, just so that - knowing BEFOREHAND they had a criminal record [not likely, probably not even looked into until they had a chance for the 1st “live” show - top 24], they could kick them off the show by disqualifying them on the grounds of their criminal record?????
well, had I not seen so many Idol auditions by people who obviously had a few loose screws, I would not think anyone could make these ridiculous claims.
the number of contestants each year that are sacked in the initial auditions, and who are then so outraged that that happened to them, always amazes me.
then again, the media and the politicized scientific community and the many Marxist economists have taught everyone that correlation (those filing the suit are all black) equals causation (racism). It is ignorance, but it IS what people have been taught to believe, in so many fields.
It is amazing, you must admit, that such an offbeat sect that names their children after their own obscure saints (like for example, Chantelif and Shaquana), dresses in colorful folkloristic costumes (for example, orange three piece suits, trousers with crotches down near the knees), a sect like the Amish, can sing so well, play excellent football, even better basketball, decorate their Cadillacs so creatively, and speak a language that no one can (and few want to) understand.
Tell them you have a better chance if you are gay as well.
My wife loves this pathetic piece of crap show. I’m forced to use my MP3 player to avoid listening to the awful singing from virtually all the people of all ethnic sources. It is truly a vile show.
Albanian’s got talent
