Black victims who received a settlement from The Franciscan Friars order say they were given $235,000 less than what white victims were rewarded for their abuse claims.

Two Black men in the Mississippi Delta who say they were abused by clergymen were secretly paid $15,000 each within the past few months to remain quiet, The Associated Press reported Tuesday. Meanwhile, white victims were granted an average of $250,000. https://atlantablackstar.com/2019/08/28/poor-black-catholic-church-victims-receive-at-least-200k-less-in-payout-than-white-ones-we-had-to-take-what-we-could/
