Christ the King High School in Queens, New York is reportedly yet another educational institute that has acted culturally insensitive towards its black students.

On Thursday, the New York Daily News reported that a senior student at the school whose name is Malcolm Xavier Combs requested to get his name abbreviated on his senior sweater to appear as "Malcolm X." 

“All I wanted was the ‘X.’ My name is Malcolm Xavier Combs,” he said. 

Combs is a National Honor Society member and was reportedly pulled out of his English class by officials to tell him his request had been denied. 

The school administration rejected the request because it didn't want to represent the historical civil rights leader. School official Veronica Arbitello reportedly told Combs, "that’s someone I don’t want to be associated with."

Even after her judgmental remark, Arbitello went on to belittle the student with her husband, who is the basketball coach, calling him “the new Malcolm X.”

In response, Combs said: “I felt insulted. They just laughed at me… that’s my name, Malcolm X., not a nickname.”

Combs called his parents after the incident and they acted immediately. The father has an appointment with the school and reached out to Reverend Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. The parents don't wish to sue the school, but they hope that school will invest in culture-sensitivity training and employee more minority staff. 

Combs canceled his order for the $40 sweater.
