Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was actually mocking a white fan when he made his “black girl” joke.
The USA keeps getting weirder as it kowtows to blacks and feminists, while demonizing every white male it can. I guess the crime is “breathing while a white male.”
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones apologized Friday for making a joke with racial overtones that was captured on video four years ago.
The video surfaced Friday morning by The Blast.
At the Melrose Hotel in Oak Lawn, Jones encountered a fan who was about to get married. The man, who is white, asked Jones if he would videotape a message for his fiancée.
“Jennifer, congratulations on the wedding,” Jones says in the video. “Now, you know he’s with a black girl tonight, don’t you?”
The camera then pans to show an African-American male, who’s apparently laughing at Jones’ comment.
“That comment was inappropriate,” Jones said in a statement issued by the club Friday afternoon. “It’s not who I am, and I’m sorry.”
Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders, who played five seasons with the Cowboys, defended Jones after the video was posted.
“I refuse to allow a moment to turn into a monument regarding a man I have known for 20 years, not just as an owner, but as a friend,” Sanders said in an e-mail. “I won’t cast judgment on one moment when a joke went south, to capture who this man represents in a lifetime commitment of love and compassion to all ethnicities.
“A joke that was intended to add humor at the request of a fan in a light-hearted moment was taken totally out of intent. I’m sorry we’re in this state of mind as a country, but if you’re looking for a racist, Jerry Jones is not that guy,” Sanders said.
The video became made public hours after a report from ESPN’s Outside the Lines said Jones threatened to come after commissioner Roger Goodell upon learning the league had suspended Ezekiel Elliott for six-games.
Football is deep in Jerry Jones DNA. Now he has to apologize for something stupid because if he doesn’t his Negro players would rebel.
Never put yourself in a situation where you have to apologize to blacks unless an apology is appropriate. In this case, a billionaire who owed no one an apology is forced to make one to keep his darkies on the plantation and happy.
Next time Jerry should just order a dozen watermelons sent to the team locker room.
