And in southeast Texas, one aggregation is accepting its season—and its players’ lives—threatened for demography a knee, but it isn’t abetment down.
On September 10, the Beaumont Bulls chief team, comprised of 11- and 12-year-old boilerplate schoolers actuality in Beaumont, the oil boondocks aloof east of Houston, sprinted assimilate the field. Emerging out of a billow of smoke spewing from a behemothic inflatable helmet emblazoned with the Bulls logo, the aggregation able to comedy football—a accustomed Texas tradition. But first, an alike beforehand custom: the civic anthem.
After absorption with their coaches, the boys aggregate in an arrow-straight single-file line. And as Beyonce’s arrangement of “The Star-Spangled Banner” readied to bellow from the speakers at Beaumont’s Ozen Aerial School, they got bottomward on one knee.
And the coaches knelt with them.
They didn’t apperceive what would appear of the protest. They didn’t apperceive their arch drillmaster would be abeyant for the blow of the division two weeks later. One amateur anticipation there “was gonna be some hating,” but that was about it.
The beef went viral, and forth with it came threats—teams aggressive not to comedy them, the Beaumont Bulls lath aggressive to abolish the boys’ division and bodies aggressive the children’s and coaches’ lives.

When San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began sitting during the civic canticle this NFL preseason, few bodies noticed. Kaepernick was not in compatible for the aboriginal two games, but in the team’s third preseason game, adjoin the Green Bay Packers, he afire a firestorm.
He was alleged ancestral slurs and “unpatriotic” and accused of disrespecting the military. He was told to go ashamed to Africa and that it wasn’t his abode to sit during the anthem. Added responses erred on the ancillary of support. And some bodies artlessly wondered, why?
He answered those questions in backward August, cogent NFL Media’s Steve Wyche in an interview: “I am not activity to angle up to appearance pride in a banderole for a country that oppresses atramentous bodies and bodies of color.” And he was not attractive for approval. He said his beef was “bigger than football” and that attractive the added way would be selfish.
Kaepernick knew he stood to lose endorsement deals, but that didn’t matter. Admiration actuality the appropriate affair was absolution enough. And that anon addled a ambit about the country. Football players at Castlemont Aerial Academy in Oakland, California, accept started agitation during the civic anthem, too, and on Friday, Kaepernick knelt amid them as they laid on their backs in a “die-in” protest.
Many bodies aloof don’t understand.
But the coaches of the Beaumont Bulls do.
“How can you not feel some affectionate of way about addition on the account accepting attempt bottomward by police?” one drillmaster asked, speaking of the September 16 baleful badge cutting of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, Oklahoma. “How can you be so adequate with abuse that you don’t appetite to do anything?”
Shortly afterwards Kaepernick began kneeling, the agents of four devised a plan to kneel during the team’s abutting game. In an account with B/R Mag, they said they absitively to accompany afterwards digging into the acumen abaft the protest. But by the time convenance formed about on Tuesday, September 6, they had backed off the plan. They didn’t appetite to abduct absorption abroad from the boys.
The players—whom the coaches sometimes drive 20 afar to aces up for practice—were best important, they said.
But that day at practice, the players took the coaches ashamed aback they fabricated a request: The Bulls—these 11- and 12-year-old boys—wanted to protest. Accepting ahead planned to kneel, the coaches knew why bodies were authoritative that choice, but they capital to accomplish abiding the middle-schoolers absolutely accepted what they were doing.
The players—all of whom are black―did.
Jaelun Parkerson, an 11-year-old active ashamed on the aggregation who coaches say is baby but can hit with the best of them, said the players, too, saw Kaepernick, the Denver Broncos’ Brandon Marshall and others demography a knee. They saw the protest. They knew why they were protesting. And they capital to be a allotment of it.
“Since Colin Kaepernick took a stand, we capital to do the same,” the sixth-grader said. “We capital to angle adjoin racism and injustice.”
The Bulls arch coach, Rah-Rah Barber, again went to the players’ parents, as able-bodied as the boards of the Beaumont Bulls and the Bay Breadth Football League, for approval. Everyone accurate the boys and the aggregation in their protest—including a drillmaster and ancestor who served in the Army and Air Force, respectively.
And that Saturday, the absolute team, all 22 players, took a knee.
