Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott issued his response to LeBron James’s criticisms of team owner Jerry Jones.

Their comments are about a published photo of Jones from 1957 outside North Little Rock High School as black students were being integrated into the school for the first time. Among the crowd pictured, some are attempting to block the new students from entering. Jones confirmed that the photo was authentic but told the outlet he was only present at the time because he was “curious,” not because he was protesting.

James criticized reporters Wednesday for not asking athletes to address the photo. Prescott, on the other hand, said the photo was “on Jerry to address.”

“Obviously, we can be more empathetic and give grace to one another, regardless of race. From the times we’ve come from to where we are now, thinking about the growth we’ve had,” Prescott said. “That’s who I am, how I think—optimistic. I mean, a guy who is completely biracial, black and white, it’s easy for me to speak on race on one side or another.”

Prescott went on to say that he “wouldn’t be here if it were still” 1957, as an example of the progress the country has made. He directed further questions regarding the photo to Jones himself.
