Numerous lawsuits have cost the government several billion dollars. The latest legal settlement is for women and Hispanic farmers who can prove they were discriminated against in the 1980s and ‘90s. But some of these farmers say the deal to make amends for discrimination is itself discriminatory.</p><p></p><p> Mon, 12 Nov 2012 14:08:38 +0000 Jessica Robinson 18237 at http://nwpr.org Women And Hispanic Farmers Say Discrimination Continues In Settlement
