A suit being settled out of court is an admission of guilt that they are trying to pay off because they know they are in the wrong and that it would end up costing them more.

It's like when you go to traffic court and the judge offers you to plea down your ticket and get zero points on your license you still have to admit guilt.

This is true but at the end of the day, the person in charge of the company is still held responsible for what goes on in their company. They are supposed to be briefed on everything going on in their company on a regular basis. Are you sure you know anything about being in charge of a company?

People don't change. They never do. They make attempts to change and give off appearances like they do but deep down in their core. They are the same person they always were.

I was the same way, but about white t-shirts. Not that a white t-shirt would ever be my first choice now, but it used to be that I wouldn't wear a white t-shirt, and if I went someplace (like a concert, for example) where only white t-shirts were available, I'd pass. I own and wear a number of white t-shirts now.

You got only a small part of that right. Settling out of court is done when it would cost more money to fight something in court, and the party doesn't feel that it would be worth that extra money.

"There was no admission of guilt" is actually a legal status in this case. It's a stipulation of the settlement. The people settling do not care that there was no admission of guilt as part of the settlement, because they just want to settle (and also do not want to spend the money that would be required to fight it in court).

Legally, right, at least in a situation like this. (They're not going to be held responsible, at least not fully responsible, in a situation where, say, an employee comes to work with a weapon and starts killing people, for just one alternate example.)

You're stating that as if it's a law. There's no law about that.

I believe just the opposite of that (at least on a "literal"/detailed/fine-grained ontological level). Everything always changes. You can't step in the same river twice.

Of course people change. You're not born a racist, so you had to change in order to become one. Vice versa. I used to be a very left wing guy, now I'm failing at Libertarianism. I actually used to think Karl Marx wasn't a complete buffoon in fact.

This is true, by this logic Hillary Clinton would be the grand wizard of the KKK, while Trump would be a mere brownshirt flunky dreaming of Mussolini greatness by his bed side table.

Trump never used his charity foundation to swindle the Haitian people out of billions of aid in earthquake relief, so the big banks and corporations like Walmart could start their own sweat shops & profit motivated infrastructure programs, while Haitian people starved it out without running water. That's a hell of a lot worse than a 1973 tenancy lawsuit that took place before most of us were born.

Racist or profit motivated?

Trump never referred to young black men as "super predators" or had a spouse that passed the 1994 Violent Crime Control Act that led to historic high levels of black incarcerations in the prison system.

Racist or politically motivated?

The choices of the American election depresses me so, but you are right, it is a stupid argument. It was simply rehashed in the debate because Trump's efforts with Black Americans had him running close in the polls with her in Michigan, a threat that has been neutralized after dumb dumbs poor performance in the debate.

Do you have a non-partisan source to back up this claim?

By all accounts I've found the joint Bush/Clinton disaster relief organization donated more than $50 million to Haiti. Unfortunately the money was not distributed fairly due to the massive amounts of corruption in the Haitian government.
