Mural Of Dak Prescott In Sunken Place9 months ago by Amber Le in Trending
Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys made it clear that he will not allow his players to take a knee during the national anthem after the NFL announced their new rule a few months ago. This comes as a surprise to many because just last September, the 25th of 2017 to be exact, he kneeled while linking arms in protest. Maybe it’s the fine that follows that has Jones shook. But he’s not the only one, quarterback, Dak Prescott revealed he’s not participating in the protest regardless of rules and regulations.
“I never protest. I never protest during the anthem and I don’t think that’s the time or the venue to do so. The game of football has always brought me such peace, and I think it does the same for a lot of people – a lot of people playing the game, a lot of people watching the game, a lot of people who have impact on the game. So when you bring such controversey to the stadium, to the field, to the game, it takes away. It takes aways from that, it takes away from the joy and the love that football brings to a lot of people.”
He believes the protests have made their point in raising awareness to the injustice of America and Black Lives Matter. Now while everyone is entitled to their own opinion, people are now dragging him for his quotes, deeming him a traitor. Not only that but Trey Wilder painted a mural of him in Texas representing him in the Sunken Place.
