The Cowboys issued their first public response to the coordinated protests taking place around the country in the form of a video.
The two-minute piece was released on the club’s website around noon Friday. It begins with the sounds of police sirens and chants of “I can’t breathe’’ growing louder in the background as the club flashes up its initial statement, line by line:
“Our hearts are burning with anger and sadness.
“Racism and hatred have to stop.
“We have to come together to change the system.’’
