REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) -
The father of a black teenager has filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against the Redwood City School District because an employee called his 13-year-old son a slave.
N'Jai LeBlanc says he decided to sue on Monday after school officials downplayed the January incident during his meeting with them.
LeBlanc's son was ordered to pick up lunchroom debris and he told a school employee he's not a slave.
The lawsuit says the employee told the teen it isn't a free country and added, "You are my slave."
