A report surfaced last week from The Washington Post that shows current Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones photographed amongst a group of students who were attempting to block the desegregation of North Little Rock High School in 1957; Jones was seen with the group of young men attempting to keep six black students from entering. 

And while Jones himself has responded by saying that he was simply there watching what was happening as opposed to participating in attempting to block black students from entering, others didn't feel the same way. But one notable personality who has been openly hostile towards the Cowboys and their fans over the years is coming to the defense of Jones. 

ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith, who has never been one to shy away from speaking his mind, 

“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 said.

“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.”

We're with Stephen A. on this one for sure!
