American Idol” is NOT racist against Black contestants — the lawsuit filed by 10 former Idol wannabes who claimed they were cut over race … has been dismissed, but mostly on a technicality.

TMZ broke the story … the contestants claimed “Idol” producers dug up criminal charges from their pasts — including crimes for which they were never convicted — and this was done strictly because they're Black.

According to new court docs, however … all but 1 of them waited too long to file their cases, and since the statute of limitations ran out … they had no leg to stand on. A judge tossed the cases.

The one who DID file in time — Chris Golightly … had his case dismissed when “Idol” proved to the court the reason he was booted was because he'd violated a show rule by being in a band.

Idol — 10 … Plaintiffs — 0
