Jabre White said he was stunned and angry when he claims his teacher implied White was his slave and the teacher was his master.

White tells the Des Moines Register’s Lee Rood his teacher Shawn McCurtain asked the class to move downstairs to take an economics final exam.

Jabre White was left speechless when he heard his white teacher telling him to call him "master." His mother Nicholle, found nothing humorous about the statement when the teacher tried to apologize and said that was all it was.

Jabre White was left speechless when he heard his white teacher telling him to call him “master.” His mother Nicholle, found nothing humorous about the statement when the teacher tried to apologize and said that was all it was.

White replied “Yes sir,” but he claims McCurtain replied, “You meant to say ‘Yes sir, master.’”

The incident, which occurred in May, left the college-bound senior considerably hurt and his mother calling for action.

According to the Register’s report, the school district is not denying the incident happened. White’s mother, Nicholle, claims McCurtain called her to apologize and referred to the comment as an attempt to be “humorous.”

It’s unclear what disciplinary action was pursued by the school district, because the information is “confidential under state law.”

White is headed to Iowa State next fall. His mother said she plans to “contact the Iowa Civil Rights Commission and the NAACP.”
