Dez Bryant has always been one of the most outspoken players in the NFL. As of right now, he isn’t on a team but he has certainly been working hard to get himself in playing shape. When it comes to issues of race and discrimination, Bryant always speaks from the heart, and recently, that’s exactly what he did.
There are numerous protests going on throughout the country and Bryant seems to believe Cowboys owners Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones, as well as tight end Jason Witten, could learn a thing or two about them. In the tweets below, Bryant says these three men should be brought to the protests as they would learn a lot about what real unity is.
Perhaps these comments were inspired by the fact that the Cowboys recently released a statement about police brutality and how they want to bring people together. It’s important to note that Witten actually saw Bryant’s tweet and tried to call him. Witten even advocated for peace and said that it’s time white people listen and learn about what’s going on in the world. This is a sentiment Bryant ultimately agreed with as he hit Witten with the prayer emoji.
We are facing unprecedented times in America right now and unity will certainly go a long way right now. Hopefully, the sports world is able to enact some serious change moving forward.
