Sigh, another overblown distraction from real debt issues. Have you actually read the claimant form? Or did you just go with that article and get all worked up and post here right away?

The actual claim form:
https://www.farmerclaims.gov//Documents/Claim%20Form%20EN.pd...

The website for this issue:
https://www.farmerclaims.gov//Documents.aspx

This looks like a very standard anti-discrimination issue, and I fully support that.

Guess what...if there were NO white male corporate bias in this country, we wouldn't be putting out this money. The settlement isn't the issue, and your linked article is just a distraction and a way to avoid the issue of discrimination. In fact I find it very revealing that your words imply that recompense for discrimination is a free hand out. It is no such thing.

This is just another overhyped article to stir the emotional loins of the 'no free money' crowd. Just the SLIGHTEST review would show that this is actually legally mandated and a way for the the gov't to actually AVOID litigation costs that were going to happen.
