Youth football players in Beaumont kneel to protest bullying, other problems

Youth football players in Beaumont kneel during the National Anthem Saturday before their game in silent protest of bullying, gang violence and other problems affecting youth in America, according to the photographer who took the pictures and video of the Beaumont Bulls team at the practice field near West Brook.

The owner of MHD photos says the actions had nothing to do with race. He says the goal is to start a conversation about issues affecting young people across America, whatever their race.

The league and team aren't affiliated with BISD.
