A Pee Wee league coach who punched a 9-year-old boy during a youth championship game has been banned for life from coaching in the league. Cell phone video shows the coach punch the boy like a man, knocking the child down twice.

When the little boy began to cry, the coach kicked him off the field and called another player off the bench to replace him.

Equally as bad are the grown Black men standing around watching the abuse and doing nothing to stop it.

The incident occurred during the American Youth Football Championships in Kissimmee, Florida, according to EURweb.com. The unnamed coach apologized for his behavior.

Sandra,

Have you seen the video of the little league coach, violently assaulting one of the boys he coaches? I would be UNDERNEATH the jail.

It reminds of something that happened years ago when I lived in Columbus, Georgia. Both my friend and I were single mothers and our sons played on a little league football team. Something very similar to this happened to her son. She did nothing, even participated in calling her own son "a p-ssy a-girl" for crying AFTER the coach slapped him around for fumbling the ball. Her son was 7 at the time. The coach was in such a rage he cursed me out for telling him that was foul for how he ABUSED her son. He was later arrested and found guilty of causing bodily injury to a child, she was charged with something too, I don't recall what it was. Our sons are all around 23-26 years old now. My sons are both in the military and doing very well. The son that she didn't defend that day on the field, is a known woman beater, and is in and out of jail, her eldest son, has very little to do with her.
While I know this is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY to the left of this story, we as mothers, (if we're single mothers) have a greater responsibility of protecting our sons from abusive men (coaches and the like) and not allowing toxic masculinity to be disguised as "manning up" our sons.

Before visiting the CDC in Atlanta on Friday, President Trump toured the devastation and destruction caused by a tornado in Tennessee. A loyal reader emailed Sandrarose.com to say Trump toured a neighborhood in Cookeville, Tennessee where 24 people died and many lost their homes.

Trump offered comfort and condolences to families who lost everything. "We love them, they're special people," he said. The president declared a state of emergency and promised disaster aid to help the residents rebuild their shattered neighborhood. Read the email below.

Hello,
First, I would like to say that I am a loyal reader. Second, after reading the Trump post I had to come in and say the President was also in Tennessee yesterday declaring it a state of emergency. We had tornadoes that landed in parts of Nashville and surrounding areas and killed people. Thousands of people are without homes and electricity days after the storm. I don't specifically know the schedule for the president and the recent virus is completely serious but I'm sure he was assessing the grounds in Tennessee yesterday.

Sir Keith Holman writes in to correct my earlier post on Beyonce Knowles presenting Colin Kaepernick with the SI Muhammad Ali Award.

Beyonce wore a black sequined dress similar to the sequined jumpsuit worn by pop icon Michael Jackson in his "Rock With You" music video. I incorrectly stated MJ's jumpsuit was designed by Michael Bush (of Tompkins & Bush).
