Jerry Jones Thinks He Literally Owns Cowboys Players. (Taking a Knee Will Set You Free)

Jerry Jones

Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys is taking his role of “owner” way too literally. It might give him some great pleasure to think he owns a group of mostly black, strapping young bucks. They might even refer to him as, “my owner” from time to time. But Jerry, you don’t actually own these people!

Listening to his buddy Donald Trump (we saw you when you dropped $1 million on his inauguration) he now says he’ll bench any player that doesn’t stand for the National Anthem. It wasn’t long ago when Jones himself, took a knee, faking solidarity with his players. When Jemele Hill tweeted in response, suggesting what owners like Jones listen to are advertiser boycotts. Spineless ESPN suspended her for two weeks for violating “social media policy.”

Here is what I hope happens. I wish that every single Dallas player, white, black, and other, refuse to stand for the Anthem and let Jerry Jones forfeit the game if he wants to. There is a great desire in parts of this country including the Oval Office, to be seen crushing black people, movements, and accomplishments. Jones is certainly stepping up to do his part.

What it comes down to now is, “What are the players willing to do?” The choices are crystal clear, bow down before Jones, Trump, and others of their ilk and demonstrate your submissiveness. Take a knee and reject police brutality, injustice and white supremacy to boot!

  1. I hope to gods above and below that Dallas players genuinely all boycott and Jones can forfeit the game. Texans need to understand that this stuff is real.

    Action taken against Jemele Hill is disgusting. I can’t believe this administration, including Sara Huckabee Sanders (I guess Colbert described her as the mom of the kid who bit your kid).

  2. That is systematic racism, I was waiting for it. The Constitution already spoke on this but what historically happens when people of power want to infringe upon certain citizens rights in America they just make a law to support their narrative and then they feel justified in upholding ” the law” but disenfranchising others. Your free but you cant live here, wk here, drink here, own anything or vote but this is the law. You can wk but you need this experience or this degree but you cant wk here or attend this school. You can be a professional but here are the jobs we dont want and only to this extent. You have rights but only to this extent. These folks are so hell bent on getting these players to obey. I believe in my heart of all heart if this happens and employers start using that as a precedence to FORCE other employees to participate in political and religous activities these folks would be in court so fast because they know and believe THEY have rights and will fight their employer and this country to the bitter end and have historically done it when THEY feel they are justified and uh guess what they already have made laws and done just that but it was meant for them not anyone else they dont deem worthy. Many people know what that feels like in this country to have their citizenship marginalized. That’s right NFL do what America has always done disenfranchise these folks but lets not just stop there lets take it to every position in America and make it mandatory I guarantee you it will not stand!
