Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott says people need to have Grace when talking about Jerry Jones old photo

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.
A lot of people have been calling for Jerry Jones to be cancelled after a photo from 1957 when he was 14 years old surfaced.

A lot of people have been calling for Jerry Jones to be cancelled after a photo from 1957 when he was 14 years old surfaced.

The photo is a big deal because it was a major civil rights situation that happened in Arkansas, and people like Lebron James want to know why the media has stopped talking about it but keeps asking about Kyrie Irving.


Prescott said the following when addressing the photo and LeBron James, according to Fox News:

Obviously, we can be more empathetic and give grace to one another, regardless of race. From the times we’ve come from to where we are now, thinking about the growth we’ve had. That’s who I am, how I think, optimistic. I mean [as] a guy who is completely biracial, Black and White, it’s easy for me to speak on race on one side or another. … I don’t know if I’ve fully processed it all the way, honestly.

In the same sense, it’s 65 years ago and how times have changed. I mean, look at the man’s resume since then, right? As I said, I give grace. I think that’s a conversation and question not only for him but for you guys and how you all feel and how accountable you all have been in covering and discussing the disparities and differences in race.

As I said, I’m here for growth and giving grace and trying to make this world a better place. That’s who I am at my core and what I believe in. Unfortunately, things come up from the past, pictures, and they show how far we’ve come, but at the same sense, they’re a reminder of how short of a time that was ago. That wasn’t that long ago that we were all sitting on different sides, and we weren’t together. But as I said, I wouldn’t be here if it were still that way. So, I believe in grace and change. Those are questions for Jerry for you all, honestly, that I don’t have quite the answers for.

What do you think of Dak’s answer? Does it make you upset, or do you think he is just trying to get past the question?
