Dak Prescott: I feel funny when a cop is behind me
When Dak Prescott’s mother found out she was pregnant with his oldest brother, she ran away from home. It was the South in the 1970s and her parents did not approve of her relationship with a black man. Prescott and his brothers always tried to educate people on race and intrinsic humanity, but he understands racism persists. Even now, as the well-known quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, Prescott feels uneasy when he sees a cop behind him. That is why he donated $1 million to help educate officers. Also, Dak’s brother Tad discusses the generational differences that may contribute to racial tensions.
