I’m all in on Dak Prescott as the Cowboys quarterback, but this was dumb as hell!

You’re not going to feed me the B.S. and insinuate that your quarterback has to be black and white to lead his team, but that’s exactly what the Cowboys star gave us.
“I grew up in Haughton, Louisiana,” Prescott tells USA TODAY Sports. “I go to my white grandparents’ house, and then I cross the railroad tracks and hang out with my black grandma. We have English teachers on my white side. My grandpa is a principal. And then you go to the other side and people have been in jail.

“I was put in all those different situations. I’ve been in situations where I was the only black guy. We’re in a time now where nobody wants to see that. But it still happens. Depending on where you come from, it happens. To be able to wipe that clean and see and live both sides, it’s just who I am. Being mixed allows me to connect with everyone.”

“Being bi-racial and being from the country, I can talk to guys like Travis Frederick from Wisconsin and Doug Free from Wisconsin,” Prescott says of two offensive linemen on the Cowboys.

“And then I can go over and talk to Dez Bryant. I mean, think about the two different standpoints you need to have a real conversation with both, to really understand what they’ve been through. I don’t think many can do it. For me, it’s not hard. I’m blessed because it’s natural.”
I’m all for being well-rounded, but that doesn’t mean that Dak can scream Travis Frederick or reel in Sean Lee because he has white in his family.

Just the same, I don’t believe that Prescott being black is the only reason he hangs with Ezekiel Elliott or why he can keep Dez Bryant in check either.
