LeBron James criticized the media for not adequately covering Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’s 1957 photo scandal, which recently came to light. In contrast, James pointed out that the media was quick to ask questions about Brooklyn Nets player, Kyrie Irving, after he made antisemitic comments and was suspended. The photograph shows Jones participating in a protest against Black students entering his high school in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1957, with allegations that he was one of the bullies who blocked the students’ access. Some people have accused Jones of racism. James expressed disappointment that the Jones photo incident has been buried under the rug while the media quickly reports on the mistakes of Black people and athletes. James believes that when someone with power and a platform, especially a Black athlete, makes a mistake or does something that people do not agree with, the news coverage is non-stop and continuous, which has not been the case for Jones. Irving apologized after receiving a five-game suspension.
