    Yeah but $700,000.00 because a guy thought his McChicken Sandwich was prepared in a way it wasn't is pretty steep.

    I guess half the country, especially those in a place like Detroit, hate corporations so much that the corporation had to make a ridiculous settlement to avoid what would have been an even more punitive judgement.

    If you decide to ignore the definitions posted by removing them from my quote, that is entirely up to you. You are not free to then say "you have never heard it" that way.
    again, I have never heard anyone legitimately refer to "muslim" as an ethnicity. It might be used as short hand to refer to ethnic groups that are heavily identified through their religion, but that isn't the same as "muslim" being an ethnicity. No more than people identifying the coptic christians, as "the christian ethnicities in egypt" make christian an ethnicity

    as for your definition: "Ethnicity, or ethnic identity, refers to membership in a particular cultural group. It is defined by shared cultural practises, including but not limited to holidays, food, language, and customs."

    it ignores that there isn't a shared form of "holidays, food language, and custom" among muslims". This is because Islam is made up of a multitude of ethnic groups who bring their own take on " holidays, food, language, and customs." to the islamic religion

    I think McD's settles for over ten million when they got caught using beef tallow in their fries, while implying the were vegetarian

    Haha! No it would be pretty ****ed up if they claimed something was Kosher when it wasn't or put other meats besides fish in their fish products.

    I don't know, it seems fair to me.

    You've gotta remember that this was a class action. It wasn't, legally speaking, a guy claiming that his sandwich was prepared in a manner inconsistent with the way McDonald's had advertised, it was everyone (ostensibly) who ever bougt a sandwich from that McDonald's making the claim.

    When you consider that something like half of Dearborne's population is Arab, and most of those are prolly Muslim, and that this false advertising thing had been going on for years, it stands to reason that Muslims have been duped into spending well more than $700K on McD's food.

    I guess half the country, especially those in a place like Detroit, hate corporations so much that the corporation had to make a ridiculous settlement to avoid what would have been an even more punitive judgement.
    Either that or McDonalds was afraid that if this thing went to trial they would have stood to lose far more than what they settled for.

    An indian muslims and one from Saudi Arabia don't even practice the same holidays (the saudi man wouldn't observe Diwali). They might have religious holidays that overlap, like Eid, but that doesn't make them the same ethnicity. No more than me sharing the observance of Christmas with Coptic Christians make me a part of their ethnicity.

    $700K because sandwiches were not prepared as advertised just seems excessive to me regardless of how many people ate them.

    Plus, I just don't believe many kept halal so thoroughly as to make this a real offense.
