FRISCO – A photograph showing a 14-year-old Jerry Jones present at a 1957 Arkansas desegregation protest in Little Rock has sparked conversation about the Dallas Cowboys owner and his past.

NBA star LeBron James is asking for answers.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is, in his way, providing some.

“(As) a guy who is … biracial,” Prescott said, “it’s easy for me to speak on race on one side or the other … It’s 65 years ago and how times have changed. Look at the man’s resume since then. …”

Jones, an Arkansas native, was spotted in a photo that was taken on Sept. 9, 1957, at North Little Rock High that featured a group of white students blocking the door and yelling racial slurs at six Black students as they attempted to enter.
