The protest ignited by 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has swept the nation. From all sports to all ages, athletes are now kneeling in protest of the anthem, flag, and injustices such as police brutality and oppression in this country.
The latest protest comes from a Pop Warner football team made up of 6-year-olds.
The team, the Las Vegas Red Lions, is owned by former boxing champion Floyd Mayweaether, who’s controversial in himself.
TMZ spoke with the manager of the team, Coach Macc, who said “it was shocking to see that these 6 years olds knew what was going on.” Macc said the coaching staff discussed it with the kids and made sure “they understood why Colin Kaepernick is doing it.”
