i was called a racist
I was told by another teacher at our school that everyone believes I am a racist. I am white male teaching in a prdominately African Am. environment. The woman who told me this is an African Amercian. I brought this accusation to the attention of our administrator who said she would be sure to talk to her. After their discussion the woman who accused me of this came and verbally assaulted me in front of four other staff members, two of whom restrained her while I went back to my classroom. My question is would this constitute slander or defamation of character. If so what should I do to pursue legal action against her. I just don't want this woman doing this to someone else everytime she gets upset with someone. Thanks for your help.
