GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Several faculty and staff members, including a principal and the human resources director, are suing the Greenburgh Schools Superintendent for racial, religious and sexual harassment, according to LoHud.com.

According to the suit, Ronald O. Ross made for a hostile work environment by calling black employees "oreos," commented on the weight of female employees and used a number of other demeaning terms, LoHud.com reported.

Woodlands High School Principal Will Washington, Human Resources Director Dawn Johnson-Adams, guidance counselors Joseph A. Foy II and Holly Gant Jones and teachers Shehnaz Hirji, Theresa Butler, Wendy Scheer and Ellen Gruffi also included members of the Board of Education in the suit, who they say knew of Ross' behavior and did nothing to stop it, LoHud.com said.
