OK, I was going to use this story to illustrate why some lawsuits are good; instead, after reading it, I really think it's a dumb case. I just can't comprehend how the nursery rhyme "Eenie, meenie, minie, moe; pick a seat, we gotta go" is racist, especially when spoken by a young woman who wasn't even close to alive when a similar verse apparently was part of a racist rhyme: "Eenie, meenie, minie, moe; catch a n----- by his toe." I've been alive 42 years, and I've never heard the latter rhyme, despite being raised in Tennessee. I hope the plaintiff's lawyer has got more proof than cited in the FoxNews story.
