Youth Football Team (8-Year-Olds) Take Knees In Belleville

"Every player on the Cahokia Quarterback Club football team (8 and under) took a knee during the national anthem ahead of Sunday's game at Little Devil's Field in Belleville," Fox 2 in St. Louis reports.

"One of the kids asked me if I saw (people) protesting and rioting in St. Louis. I said yes; I said, 'Do you know why they are doing it?'" said Coach Orlando Gooden.

Coach Gooden said his player responded, "Because black people are getting killed and nobody's going to jail."
