Jerry Jones, the flamboyant owner of the marquee franchise Dallas Cowboys in the NFL, was once in the crowd of White racist segregationists who prevented Black students from integrating their high school in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1957. Jones appeared to be an onlooker as the group of Black students, known as the North Little Rock Six, unsuccessfully tried to integrate North Little Rock High School. https://t.co/e3Gbb3xhTn — Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) November 23, 2022That event occurred just a few weeks before the legendary Little Rock Nine integrated Little Rock Central High School less than five miles away. He said that he was only in attendance out of curiosity about the uproar that was taking place at his high school.
