When it comes to hot takes, Jason Whitlock stays on brand when he gives his followers exactly what they want to see and hear.
This week, Jerry Jones became a trending topic because an old photo of him has resurfaced on social media. A photo of Jones that was taken in 1957 was shared with the for the picture said: “Wow, so Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was one of the bullies trying to stop his Black classmates from desegregating Central High in Little Rock in 1957.”
This picture was attached to a column from The Washington Post that said “Jerry Jones helped transform the NFL, except when it comes to race.”
The Washington Post published a story on Wednesday on Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones that included a photograph of him at a protest against desegregation while in high school at Central High in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957.
While many were shocked at Jerry Jones being present for this moment in history, Jason Whitlock took it another route by bringing up others
“Join the Crips at 12, drop bodies until age 19, become a rap star at 20 and all is forgiven. Toast of America… A 14-year-old onlooker in 1957 must be canceled. No way Jerry evolved. Only Joe Biden, Jay Z, Snoop, and Democrats evolve.”
Social media hated everything about this take:
Jones confirmed he was a part of the crowd taunting Black students but said he didn’t participate in the protest and just wanted to witness it.
“I don’t know that I or anybody anticipated or had a background of knowing … what was involved. It was more a curious thing,” said Jones. (h/t The Washington Post)
Many have suggested this photo leak might have came from Dan Snyder. Last month, ESPN released a bombshell report on the Washington Commanders owner unearthing dirt on commissioner Roger Goodell and other league owners. It’s been suggested Snyder could be involved in the Jones photo leak but ESPN’s article states:
“Anything that came out would likely be in the form of a leak to “The New York Times” or “The Wall Street Journal,” because, multiple league and team sources say, Snyder hates “The Washington Post.”
The Cowboys have had a drought of success for 26 years, which has put the 80-year old under the spotlight.
In 2022, this is looking like one of the best teams they have put on the ifeld in recent years. The Cowboys and the Giants were playing for second place in the NFC East on Thanksgiving Day. Dallas emerged with the win.
The Cowboys rode a second-half offensive explosion to a 28-20 victory. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott completed 21 of 30 passes for 261 yards and two touchdowns.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
