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.

A loyal reader writes:

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.
