I'd say that's a max. Class representatives Lieff Cabraser thankfully has a history of this kind of defendant-friendly incompetence. Note their role in the settlement in the California Hospital Price Gouging case, where the class received about $1,000 apiece in what should have also involved criminal charges.

Black people in the US can never transcend abuse, due to what Paul Mooney termed "the nigger wake up call," which is the observation that no matter what an African American achieves in America, they can still be treated "like a nigger," if the system wants to do so.

Sure, but your point here appears to boil down to, "Well, why doesn't CyanogenMod code it for me?" You know, if CM is so great and everything.

Kind of a "catty calling the cattle black" situation, if you ask me.
