American Idol might be the least racist show on the planet... but good luck telling that to the nine former contestants who are suing the show over allegedly racist treament.
New York attorney James Freeman has submitted a letter to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, asking permission to sue the show and Fox on behalf of his clients: Corey Clark (Season 2), Jaered Andrews (Season 2), Donnie Williams (Season 3), Terrell Brittenum (Season 5), Derrell Brittenum (Season 5), Thomas Daniels (Season 6), Akron Watson (Season 6), Ju'Not Joyner (Season 8) and Chris Golightly (Season 9).
Find out why these contestants feel they were given the racist end of the stick after the jump!
