Deafening Silence: Black Boy Raped, Molested by White "Father"

A Duke University Official, Frank Lombard, has been accused of offering his 5-year-old adopted son for sex over the internet.

During an internet chat with an undercover task force agent from Washington's Metropolitan Police, Lombard, 42, allegedly offered an African American boy to the agent he was chatting with. He was arrested just a few days later in Durham, North Carolina.

He also told the undercover agent that he was partial to black children because they are easier to adopt.

The sting was organized by authorities after a confidential source facing child pornography charges told the FBI he witnessed a man performing sexual acts on a child and named Lombard, reports CNN.

According to the complaint filed against Lombard, during the chat he told the officer that he performed several sex acts on the boy and that the officer could do the same if he came to Durham.

According to a transcript of the chat, reprinted in the complaint, Lombard allegedly told the officer that he had to conceal the sexual abuse from his partner and by drugging the child with allergy medication.

Lombard was arrested June 24, the 5-year-old and another child were both removed from the home by the North Carolina Department of Social Services, the FBI said.

Lombard faces federal child sex abuse charges, which carry a prison sentence of up to 20 years upon conviction, authorities said. He made an initial appearance in federal court in North Carolina but was transferred to Washington to face the charges there, court documents show.


A couple of key issues I wanted to point out:

  • This man was arrested "days" after the initial sting. How many days? Well, we don't know. How much more abuse did these children undergo in the "meantime"?
  • This man had a "partner" - he was a homosexual.
  • He admits that black children are easier to adopt which is why he sought them out for his sick, perverted nastiness.
  • How much time passed between when the "source" alerted them of the sex act and the sting was set up?
  • He was arrested two weeks ago and not a word from the national media or the "black activists" who allegedly salivate over cases like this.
This is a five year old boy whose life is probably irrevocably ruined at this point. He has been raped, molested and drugged for who knows how long. His spirit has been shattered and the only "family" he has likely ever known betrayed his trust and robbed him of his innocence. This young boy will most likely grow up to be "DBR"if he isn't immediately helped with intensive therapy.

If this five year old grows up to become a rapist, drug dealer, murderer, etc. it will be his black SKIN that folks see first. He will be just another black male criminal and his behavior will be attributed to primarily his race and secondarily the fact that his biological father "abandoned" him. The trauma that this boy experienced and witnessed will not matter because the expectations for him are already low. No one will investigate "why", just chalk it up to his race and gender.

This is why, in my opinion, only focusing on the "betterment and protection" of black women and girls benefits no one. Many of the black men the Clucking Hens disparage have experiences not befitting of normal, sane, rational males. Just as many of the black women they are trying to "save" have not had the same experiences of normal, sane, rational females.

Like LaTanya Richardson said, black folks need some serious psychoanalysis just from our "past traumas". Toss in many of the current and existing "traumas" and it's amazing "we" are doing as well as we are. Well, at least some of us.

I hope that this poor boy is transferred to a safe environment where he can get the help he so desperately needs. I am going to do some more research to try and find his name and any contact info. Maybe even set up some type of fund for him.

If you have any ideas please drop them in the comment box.


  1. What kind of shit is this?! That poor child. This is why I believe we need to look out for and defend ALL black children.

  2. Raina,

    I wonder how many other adopted/foster care black children are living in hell right now.

    I bet this man had other foster children before he adopted. The state of NC should be sued for this. They placed this child in the hands of a pedophile. I am sure there were "red flags" here that likely went undocumented.

    This man intentionally targeted black boys for destruction to fill his own sick sexual impulses.
