Are rumors of a defendant's racism useful in a defamation case involving accusations of cheating?

Defendant accuses Plaintiff of cheating in a competition. Plaintiff sues Defendant for defamation.

Plaintiff has heard rumors that Defendant is racist.

  1. Would it be unhelpful for Plaintiff to bring these rumors up in the lawsuit?

  2. Would it be unhelpful for Plaintiff to bring this up later on eg in depositions or actual trial?
