Dak Prescott has been getting a lot of smoke for his views on players kneeling in the NFL. The Cowboys quarterback got a lot backlash, with many feeling like his comments ignored the social injustice behind the protest.

A new pop art mural was created with Prescott in the Sunken Place. The mural has Prescott his eyes wide open with tears streaming down his face like Daniel Kaluuya in Get Out.

The Sunken Place has become synonymous with the idea of someone being oblivious or in denial of the social issues pertaining to people of color.

On July 27th at training camp, the Cowboys quarterback stated that he would never kneel during the National Anthem.

“I never protest during the anthem, and I don’t think that’s the time or the venue to do so,” Prescott said earlier. “The game of football has always brought me such at peace, and I think it does the same for a lot of people, a lot of people playing the game, a lot of people watching the game, a lot of people that have any impact of the game. So when you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game, it takes away. It takes away from that. It takes away from the joy and the love that football brings to a lot of people.”

Prescott went on to explain he respects what the players believe in, but prefers a different method.

“I respect what all those guys believe in,” he said. “If they believe it’s going to make a change and it’s going to make a difference then power to them. But for me, I believe in doing something, action. It’s not about taking a knee. It’s not necessarily about standing. We can find a different place to make our country better. A

Prescott stands by his comments.

“I made my statements. I stand by what I said,” Prescott said. “Some people might have misunderstood or whatever, but I know what I said, and I feel strongly about what I said. It is what it is.”
