Based on some recent high-profile settlements, I am hoping for several million dollars. After all, that second-string news babe Gretchen Carlson was awarded $20 million for enduring the horror of sexual harassment. Imagine being told "You are hot" and "I want to have sex with you" day after day, all while you are dressed like a career prostitute. That must have stung.
Then there is the family of Sandra Bland, the 28-year-old black woman who was stopped by police in Texas for failing to signal while changing lanes, like nobody ever does that. In fact, raise your hand if you haven't. (I thought so.) Sandra was arrested because of her bad attitude, then taken to jail where she died three days later. Her family just won $1.9 million in a wrongful death suit. The incident was caught on a police dash-cam video; if only the cops had told Sandra that while she failed to signal she looked really hot, perhaps her family could have gotten more. (Like $18.1 million more.)
