Young Texas football team gets their coach suspended and whole season cancelled after kneeling down during national anthem

A Young football team in Texas comprising of 11 and 12 year olds are in shock after their coach was suspended and the whole football season cancelled following their decision to kneel down while the American national anthem was being played.

The 'kneeling down during anthem' action is one in a long list of incidents across the country in sporting grounds. It is seen as a protest for racial injustice and segregation in the United States.

According to reports, no young athletes in America have paid the price for this demonstration like the  Beaumont Bulls football team players in Beaumont, Texas.

On Sept. 10, after getting permission from league officials, the staff and students of the Beaumont Bulls football team took a knee before their game. They won 27-0 and got a lot of media attention for their actions, but started receiving racist and death threats which led the board of the team to release a statement defending the actions of the young kids.

After a few days the board issued a warning to the players and coach not to engage in the protest again, but the team defied the orders and knelt down on Monday, October 17th and also won that match.

The Executive board, incensed at the disobedience of the boys and the coaching crew, suspended Coach Rah-Rah Barber a decision that shocked and also annoyed the boys seeing that he was a great leader and mentor to them all.
So the boys decided to stop training until the coach is reinstated and informed the board of their decision.

The Executive board decided that instead of reinstating the coaches and allowing the protests, they'd simply cancel the rest of the season and that's exactly what they did.

You cant force loyalty/patriotism.
Punishing them won't bring an end to their call for equality.
