The Dallas Cowboys took a knee before Monday night’s game -- all of them, including owner Jerry Jones -- as a show of support for those protesting police brutality and racial inequality across the United States.
Jones has applauded the Cowboys in the past for not protesting the flag.
“I just feel so strongly that the act of recognizing the flag is a salute to our country and all of the people that have sacrificed so that we can have the liberties we have," Jones said on a Dallas sports radio show in August. “I feel very strongly that everyone should save that moment for the recognition of the flag in a positive way, so I like the way the Cowboys do it.”
