Common Compares Jerry Jones To Slave Owner: "Like, 'You Gonna Do What I Say On This'"

  

G.O.O.D. Music's Common is having a hard time buying what Jerry Jones is selling. The hip-hop veteran has weighed-in on the drama surrounding the Dallas Cowboys owner.

Approached by paparazzi, Common did not bite his tongue on his feelings toward Jones telling players they'd face punishment for protesting the National Anthem.

"I think some people who feel like what's going on with the kneeling and the anthem, it's a form of, you gotta acknowledge what Francis Scott, when he wrote the Anthem, acknowledge all the verses, acknowledge the stuff where it's talking about enslaving people and then think about how the people like black people how we feel that that's at the core of what that National Anthem is, right? ... To me it's an owner mentality. It's like a slave owner mentality, to be honest. Like, 'You gonna do what I say on this.' Nobody disrespecting the job, they're not on the job saying disrespectful things, they're just saying this is how I want to place my body during this anthem." (TMZ)




This week, former NFL superstar Shannon Sharpe unleashed his emotions over Jones' remarks.

Dallas Cowboys' Brice Butler has also addressed his owner's National Anthem protest warning.

"My initial reaction, honestly, I was in the locker room - we're talking about the game, and one of the guys came up and kind of said it to me on the side, and I was like, 'Did he say that a week ago?' Because nothing's been going on now for that to come up and he said somebody asked him that question. So when it was said, I was just like, Jerry Jones is the owner, that's what he says, he has the right to say what he wants to say - I don't feel like that affects me at all because I never had a plan to do anything during the National Anthem or something like that. So it didn't really affect me but hopefully it didn't affect anybody else on the team."






Dallas Cowboys' Brice Butler says Jerry Jones' ultimatum to stand for the flag or be benched didn't really affect him because he had no intentions of doing anything during the anthem.

Early Tuesday, President Donald Trump applauded Jones' actions and slammed suspended ESPN host Jemele Hill for personally attacking the Cowboys' owner.
