LeBron James questions media over Jerry Jones desegregation photo – video | Sport


LeBron James has questioned the media over their failure to ask him about a controversial photo featuring Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. The Washington Post recently unearthed a photo from 1957 in which a teenaged Jones is in the crowd while a mob of white boys blocks six Black students from entering Arkansas’ North Little Rock High. The photo was taken in a period when schools had started to desegregate in the United States. ‘It seems like to me that the whole Jerry Jones situation, the photo, and I know it was years and years ago, and we all make mistakes, I get it. It seems like it’s just been buried under,’ he said.
