Customer Question

Good morning, at work I have told some collegues how things went when I lived in Nigeria and how white managers treated them. Now this is used against me in a way that looks like I have been making racist remarks and my company has started disciplinary actions against me.
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: I am an airline captain with Easyjet and this happend on a turn around in Gatwick with Italian crew and was reported on our Italian base.
JA: What action has been taken so far? What's your ideal outcome?
Customer: I have received a letter of a disciplinairy claim against me and have 10days to respond and tell my side of the story.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: There was an issue with a ramp agent about his agressive attitude and then I reflected on this with the cabin crew by wondering where he originally came from, I thought he might originate from Nigeria and told a story about how people were treated there and so the misinterpretation started.

You need to explain exactly what you said and the context in which you said it, which was that his attitude may have been as a result of treatment given to him by him in the past.

You can do no more than this. If there are any specific points please respond I will be happy to reply further.
