Fans blast Jerry Jones, Cowboys for planned trip to D.C.’s African American Museum

The Cowboys have a critical NFC East showdown against the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon.

But win, lose, or draw, the team will spend the first day of its bye week in the nation’s capital. Coaches and players will take a field trip Monday to the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Owner Jerry Jones, head coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Dak Prescott discussed why they viewed the excursion as a positive learning experience for all involved.

But some fans took a cynical view of the endeavor on Twitter.

Some fans did have positive things to say about the news though.
