When I first coined "diversenfreude",
I imagined a case where a "civil rights"
crusader (the EEOC) itself was sued for racial discrimination.
Thanks to one Natasha Sivanandan of the United Kingdom, it`s no longer a hypothetical.
High cost of compensation culture and `human rights`
A race equality campaigner has cost taxpayers more than Â?1 million by bringing a string of discrimination claims â€“ several of them against anti-racism groups, By Ben Leach, Telegraph, UK, June 11, 2011
She actually sued an "anti-racist"
group, the Hackney Action for Racial Equality, that allegedly racistly refused to hire her (she is Sri Lankan). Her payday was Â?425,000 (about $683,000), which she can spend from her Â?450,000 housing association property in London (a prize from a prior discrimination complaint). The group had to shut down, partly as a result of the suit.
All told, she`s cost British taxpayers about a million pounds during her 25-year career as a serial discrimination suit filer, according to the Telegraph.
Can we get her to sue the Southern Poverty Law Center? Let`s put serial litigators to good use, people.
