“Chicken Eater,” “Ni**ger”: White High School Football Players Rape Black Teammate After Months of Bullying

After months of intense bullying, a teammate held out his arms after football practice in their high school locker-room, when he saw his team opening their arms to embrace him. The boy thought he was about to get a hug. He was wrong. Instead, he was viciously raped, police tell local news sources. Michael Miller, writing for The Washington Post, comments “As the teammate restrained the boy, another football player allegedly thrust a coat hanger into the boy’s rectum. Then a third teammate kicked the coat hanger several times, according to a criminal complaint.”

The Oct. 23, 2015, incident has rocked the tiny town of Dietrich. This spring, after several months of investigation, the state Attorney General’s office filed sexual assault charges against all three alleged attackers. Two of the teenagers are being charged as adults and could face life in prison, under Idaho law. Earlier this month, the case took an even darker turn when the boy’s family filed a $10 million lawsuit against Dietrich High School. Now, a recently-filed lawsuit alleges months of abuse carried on without any intervention from police or the school, even though many incidences were reported. The lawsuit says that the rape “wasn’t a one-off but rather the culmination of months of racist abuse by white students against the boy, who is black,” Miller notes. The child “was taunted and called racist names by other members of the team which names included ‘Kool-Aid’ ‘chicken eater’ ‘watermelon’ and [the N-word],” the lawsuit further alleges. The civil complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Idaho also claims that one of the students charged with sexual assault displayed a Confederate flag and demanded the boy recite a racist song titled “Notorious KKK.”

All three of the boy’s attackers were white, the suit says. The suit, which names the 18-year-old boy, was provided to The Washington Post by his attorney. However, The Post generally does not name victims of sexual assault. In addition to Dietrich High School, the lawsuit also names 11 employees as defendants. It claims school administrators and coaches did nothing to stop the racial and physical abuse towards the boy, who was especially vulnerable due to “mental disorders including learning disabilities.” The lawsuit alleges that Dietrich football coaches “encouraged other players to fight the boy, allowing a much larger student to knock the boy unconscious” while other students shouted “catcalls, taunts and racial epithets.” Dietrich High School has refused to respond to a request for comment from any media sources. Against the alleged backdrop of widespread racial abuse at Dietrich, one individual stands out: John R.K. Howard. Howard, 18, is one of the three students accused of sexually assaulting the boy with the coat hanger. He is charged as an adult with one count of forcible penetration by use of force or a foreign object, according to the criminal complaint. The lawsuit paints Howard as the ringleader of the racist abuse against the boy, who was adopted at age four by white parents living in the predominantly white town of 334 people. “Mr. Howard is a large and aggressive male who had been sent to live with his relatives in Idaho due to his inability to keep out of trouble in Texas,” the lawsuit maintains. “Mr. Howard is a relative of prominent individuals in the community and, at least in part due to his athletic ability and community connections, the Defendants ignored or were deliberately indifferent to the behavior of Mr. Howard which included aggression, taunting and bullying of The Plaintiff and other students in the District. With deliberate indifference, the Defendants did nothing to curb the vicious acts of Mr. Howard who brought with him from Texas a culture of racial hatred towards the Plaintiff,” it adds. Watch the local report below… The child was only one of the few African American students at Dietrich as well as the only one on his football team. As such, he was subjected to frequent abuse by Howard and his fellow teammates, which included “aggressive ‘humping’, jumping on him from the back and simulating anal sex,” according to the lawsuit. His fellow football players allegedly gave him painful wedgies, stripped him of his clothes and took naked photos of him in the locker room. One student drew a picture of the boy sitting in the back of the bus on a classroom chalkboard. It was Howard, however, who was allegedly behind the worst abuse. It was Howard who allegedly forced the boy to recite the words to “Notorious KKK,” a bitterly racist and violent rap song set to the tune of Notorious B.I.G.’s “Can’t You See,” the suit alleges. It was Howard who, with his bare fists, allegedly knocked out the boy, who was made to wear boxing gloves, as teammates and coaches formed a circle around them. And it was Howard who allegedly kicked the coat hanger five or six times, causing the boy “rectal injuries” that required hospital treatment, the l
