Jerry Jones Canceled?
Well, that is what Stephen A. Smith feels the Washington Post is trying to do when they released a 65-plus-year-old photo taken when he was 14 years old standing towards the back of a crowd of white students blocking six black students from the entryway at North Little Rock High School.
Stephen Jones tore up the Washington Post, and defended Jerry Jones in the incident.
Smith said, “You’re going to bring up a photo of him when he was 14, 15 years old, sixty-five or sixty-six years ago? This is where cancel culture gets into the mix. You’re making an attempt to irradicate him, what he stands for and all he has done,” Smith explained passionately.
“I don’t have a problem with the photo. If he was 30, 35, 40 years old, that’s different. We’re going to lean on somebody when he was 14? Born and raised in the South, and we’re going to pick it up 66 years later to say ‘You know something, you ain’t hiring a black coach.’ I think that’s pretty low.”
Jones admitted that it is him in the photo but explained he did not participate in any protesting.
“I don’t know that I or anybody anticipated or had a background of knowing … what was involved,” Jones explained. “It was more a curious thing.”
Do you agree with Stephen A. Smith’s take? Or do you think Jerry Jones was involved?
